Brainoil, Gravecode Nebula, Pendulous, Tsepesch
1033 NW 16th Ave.
[SLUDGE METAL] Weedeater fans, put the bong down for a second and listen up. While those North Carolinian sludge wizards have made it to Portland at least annually for a few years now, there’s another group you need to know that lives a lot closer but seldom makes it here. That band is Brainoil, a trio from Oakland that brings that same kind of devastating groove-grunge you love. You like Eyehategod? You’re going to love Brainoil. And if you’ve already drunk the Kool-Aid, then you know this is the first local Brainoil show since 2010, and that the trio just released a new split EP with Drop Dead, which features artwork from J. Bannon of Converge. ‘Nuff said. You may now resume your toking.
