Usnea, Lycus, Hungers, Satyress
2026 NE Alberta St.
[DOOM METAL] It’s fitting to pair Usnea and Lycus. Both bands are young, championing a fresh, thoroughly West Coast approach to doom metal. Both have also recently signed to the Relapse label. The differences are slight. Usnea hails from Portland and infuses its doom with a psychedelia that manages to rather brilliantly avoid devolving into post-rock territory. Lycus is from the East Bay, and keeps things blackened, occasionally blasting into feral, wintry musical landscapes. Opening the show is the far more traditional, swinging blues-doom act Satyress, whose vocalist, Jamie LaRose, is prepping a move to Virginia. See them while you can.
