Samothrace (Seattle, WA)
https://samothrace.bandcamp.com/
Samothrace formed in early 2006 with the intent of writing heavy, blues-based doom with an emphasis on forging their own sound in the community. Samothrace hit the scene with their debut LP Life's Trade, released by 20 Buck Spin way back in 2008. Four years have passed since then, a lifetime in today's fast-moving 24 hour PR blaaahgosphere. Life's Trade received a great deal of critical acclaim upon its release, even landing in Decibel Magazine's top albums of the year list for 2008. The band toured behind the LP and then, for a time, it seemed like they'd disappeared. In fact the members were occupied with the ups and downs of their daily lives which proved often to be tumultuous. Having left Samothrace shortly after recording Life's Trade, guitarist Renata Castagna returned to the fold in 2010 and the band began to slowly re-emerge becoming an active band once more.


He Whose Ox is Gored (Seattle, WA)

“Their music is beautiful just as much as it’s brutal, and they wear nuance well. Were you to strictly measure the moments of distorted, pounding sludge against those of more exotic and meditative instrumentation, I wouldn’t be surprised if the ratio ended up dead even. It’s a dramatic approach but never an overbearing one, and genuinely innovative in a way that feels organic—synthesizers or not.” – Treble
