Uzala, Dead to a Dying World, the Siege Fire, Satanarchist
1033 NW 16th Ave.
[DARKNESS AND DOOM] Boise’s favorite children of doom return to Portland’s new home for metal. Uzala is two parts Idahoan: Darcy Nutt and Chad Remains operate tattoo parlors while crafting psychedelic metal influenced by Norse mythology. Drummer Chuck Watkins lives here in P-Town, and his bearded grin can also be found behind the kit in local supergroup Ephemeros. Along with a catalog of heavy-duty vinyl and cassette releases, Uzala brings along Dallas sextet Dead To A Dying World. DTADW marks its territory in the apocalyptic blackness with long, contemplative passages led by Eva Vonne’s violin. And while I have no idea who the opener Satanarchist is, that’s a hell of name to live up to.
