Vow of Volition Make the Final Round of the Battle for Warped Tour

The Vans Warped Tour was the first festival for many of us back in the day. As young'ns, it's likely we didn't necessarily think about all that went into figuring out the bands to book and play the whole shebang. Part of that process, at least locally, seems to be through a series "battle of the bands" style competitions specifically for landing a spot on the fest. Quite a few Portland bands have been furiously playing against one another for said spot, and djent/prog metal act Vow of Volition are one of the acts that made it to the finals.

Warped Tour was always the type of festival that included much in the realm of pop punk, punk punk, emo and metal, so Vow of Volition's advancement to the final round is no surprise. Their incredibly technical, at times jazzy metal stands out in Portland's pretty linear popular music scene, and is much worthy of the attention its getting.

Those that want to support Vow of Volition in driving home the permanent spot can go to the Battle for Warped Tour finals Saturday at the Hawthorne Theatre.





New Track: "Key & Bone" (revisited) - Heavy Temple

Originally featured on Chassit, the power trio of Heavy Temple recently shared an augmented version of “Key & Bone” (featuring Thunderhorse). While its previous incarnation orchestrated an eerie cathedral of sound, the fresher take wastes little time, throwing you directly into the pressure cooker. Oozing a fuzzy hypnosis, the band proceeds to shred and stampede in tight, explosive, instrumental pockets. 





New Ecstatic Vision Covers EP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Ecstatic Vision pay tribute to their musical table-setters on the group's latest EP Under The Influence, which is now available via Heavy Psych Sounds. Enter into cosmic overdrive as this hypnotic brand of heavy takes command. Raunchy riffs and howling, demonic vocals blaze a trail that one will intuitively follow. The band will be holding its release celebration on Friday June 8 at Kung Fu Necktie, supported by Narcos Family Band and High Reeper.
