Sons of Huns, Ape Machine, Bison Bison
2026 NE Alberta St.
[METAL FOR THE MASSES] Sons of Huns has risen quickly to the upper echelons of Portland’s hardest rocking bands, built on a solid foundation of balls-to-the-wall beats, huge guitar solos and blistering live shows. The band’s latest single, “Leaving Your Body,” released late last year, is a perfect example of why its music has great appeal beyond the Ash Street Saloon double-denim crowd. Somewhere between Fu Manchu and Black Sabbath, the trio combines the psych-y riffing and freewheeling energy of the former with the shout-along vocals and dramatic sensibilities of the latter. In other words, it’s good, no-bullshit rock anyone with two ears and a pulse can enjoy.
