No Funeral.

No Funeral.

Minneapolis band No Funeral works in the more debased and abrasive corners of doom metal. On the band's 2016 debut album, Misanthrope, the band pairs its dense riffs with menacing, swaggering rhythms and distortion that leans more toward steel wool than toward comforting sludge. Guitarist Kevin Pipkorn's vocal style is what really pushes songs like "Narcotic Hex" into malignant territory, with corroded howls that lance through the band's filth-coated sludge. They're on an altogether excellent bill here. Winnipeg band Tunic play excellent, frenzied noise-rock, as captured on the recent Boss EP. Vancouver's Blessed craft bright but structurally and rhythmically twisted rock that should appeal to fans of Deerhoof and Polvo. Madison/Wausau band Poney recently reemerged after a few quiet years, and have been working on a new album. Their music is an epic, inventive blend of metal, hardcore, and prog-rock. —Scott Gordon
