The Azalea City’s peaceful Lenten season will be interrupted by a metallic explosion courtesy of The Blind Mule. Mobile’s Black Titan will host three dark and foreboding groups from along the Gulf Coast.
The Nappie Award-winning Black Titan has used its intense, grinding mix of sludge and doom metal to gather a dedicated following.
Hallelujah Gangbang will make the journey from Ocean Springs to showcase its vehement metal style. Each measure of this band’s repertoire takes on the air of a gargantuan stomp of a steel-toed boot. This Mississippi metal outfit will play a setlist filled with cuts from their album “Blow Your Brains Out.”
Beerwolf’s mighty howl of doom should shake up The Blind Mule. As a member of Tampa’s rich and diverse metal scene, Beerwolf serves up stoner metal anthems that resonate with the madness of bands such as Black Sabbath and Monster Magnet. Beerwolf has captured its furious groove metal on the album “Planetfall.”
Doomstress will be traveling from Texas to give the Azalea City a dose of its mystically evil album, “Supernatural Kult Sounds: The Second Rite.” With stoner metal forerunner Pentagram as a muse, Doomstress will evoke the ancient metal spirits throughout their sonic ritual. The Texas badlands never sounded so good.
