Esoteric, Velnias, Saturnalia Temple
225 SW Ash St.
[DOOM DEATH] When it comes to doom, it’s tough to have a better pedigree than birthing your band in Birmingham, England. After all, that’s where Black Sabbath, the founders of the form, originated. Twenty-some years after that came Esoteric, an uncompromising death-doom metal act which stretches its epics into 90 minute polysyllabic albums bearing titles such as Paragon of Disonnance and Subconscious Dissolution Into The Continuum. It’s a rare treat to see such a respected cult act on the intimate Ash Street stage. Along for the ride is Swedish sludge-merchant Saturnalia Temple and Colorado woodland black metal cult Velnias, the latter of which is certain to have elaborate merchandise with triple gatefolds, wooden boxes, and just a touch of grave moss.
