[DOOM METAL] When it comes to doom, cookie-cutter approaches and Xeroxed copies of copies have been the rule of late. Everyone is influenced by Black Sabbath and its disciples with such intricately diminishing returns that there’s no room left to improve what’s gone before. Luckily, local band Usnea takes a more progressive approach, lending the supreme down-tuned riffage of Cathedral a seriously psychedelic edge. And by that, I mean guitar effects that swirl these 15-minute tunes right to the center of a black hole. Tonight is the release show for the band’s eye-poppingly well-designed and self-released LP. At only $10, it’s a steal and a must-have for doom and vinyl enthusiasts.
