The blog Doomed & Stoned has put together an extensive compilation of underground heavy bands in Portland, Oregon, which features Ape Machine's "Angry Man," Blackwitch Pudding's "Swamp Gas Of The Nevermizer," and a whole lot more. The site's founder, Billy Goat, comments:
"Portland, Oregon is known for many things--it's the 'Rose City,' clustered around the mighty Willamette River and nearby Mt. Hood, the home of Nike and the Trail Blazers, even a major network television show called Portlandia.
"But to the hard working locals, Portland is home two the two big things that really matter: brews and bad-ass rock 'n' roll. Doomed & Stoned in Portland is a snapshot of the heavy music scene right now in Portland--from the ever-popular Red Fang, Lord Dying, and Toxic Holocaust, to rising stars such as Sons of Huns, Ape Machine, and Drunk Dad.
"Most of all, here is a collection of bands with a strong DIY ethic--everything from experimental metal to a distinct brand of Northwest punk to the ultra-heavy metal doom giants like Graves at Sea, Usnea, and Stoneburner. Not to mention the bands that just like to "Keep Portland Weird" (Blackwitch Pudding, Pinkzilla, Big Black Cloud). Over 65 bands waiting for you to lend them your ears--and a free download, to boot. You may just discover your next favorite bands."
You can tell from the Eolian relation that's it's already going to be an ugly tour: Drunk Dad and Honduran are headed on out a U.S. trek.

Black Cobra, the devastatingly heavy duo hailing from the bay area and backed by Southern Lord Recordings, has been added to Stumpfest 2014.
Black Cobra's recent album, "Invernal," was described by The Sleeping Shaman as "the sound of a schizophrenic octopus, high on speed, hard liquor and murderous hatred trapped inside the body of a man locked in a darkened jail cell."

Links for prices and more info through the venue website will be provided in two weeks, so stay tuned! The currently announced Stumpfest lineup features: More...

Portland-based Eolian Empire will yield "Street Eagles," the new LP from local trio Honduran, in the coming weeks. The following press release was issued about the album:
"Street Eagles is a dark, dangerous trip through Rip City: a labyrinth of blasted beats, chunked-up chug-a-lugs, and warrior cries—with nary a solo in sight, all meat and bone. The recording by Fester (Rabbits, Nux Vomica, Knelt Rote) at Haywire Studios in Portland captures the band clear, heavy, and sick like never before. Experience a brutal sonic bludgeoning in all its fine detail! Riff after riff of palm-muted madness and finger-clicking bass over a volatile bed of beats both lightning fast and super slow from three twisted technicians way down in the frontline trenches. When you finally emerge from your rites of initiation --battered, bruised, beaten down -- you too will be a shitizen of Honduran.
"Be a good 'Shitizen' and get your Honduran hankering fixed up at Cvlt Nation, who confirms the track is 'great piece of audio destruction' right here. The shit gets real on July 30th when the Eolian deviants drop that sonofabitch via 180-gram LP and digital."
The album's track listing is:
1. Never Forget (Ben Bratt)
3. Pregnant Skeletons
4. Burnt Vestry
6. The Corpse
8. Hiding from the Idiots
9. First World Problems
10. Street Eagles
11. Stampeded by Fear More...
Recently out of hibernation, Portland label Eolian Empire is preparing to release the most ambitious and dedicated project on ITS diverse roster this Spring, with the newly-completed "Keep Our Heads" label compilation. The following press release was issued about the compilation:
"The tiny D.I.Y. label more focused on maintaining a kinship with their regional underground music scene than attaining national acts or breaking into charts, the clan at Eolian has literally dedicated thousands of hours to arranging, collecting, compiling, mixing and preparing this massive offering of what they consider the best of their local underground, with Keep Our Heads.
"Aligning metal, sludge, doom, prog, punk, rock, thrash, hardcore, noise and unclassifiable anti-genre acts from across the region into a herculean ninety-nine-minute soundtrack to the Portland heavy underground, Keep Our Heads bears twenty-six exclusive tracks from stalwarts in the scene, like some twisted, many-headed beast raised on the soundtracks to River's Edge, Lost Highway, and Repo Man, practically all the tracks recorded in Portland specifically for this release.
"Keep our Haeds features acts: Acre, The Ax, Big Black Cloud, Crag Dweller, Diesto, Drunk Dad, Fist Fite, Gaytheist, Gone to Croatoan, Honduran, Hot Victory, Humours, Ix, LKN, Lord Dying, Nasalrod, Norska, Order of the Gash, Palo Verde, Prizehog, Rabbits, Redneck, Sei Hexe, Sioux, Tiny Knives, and Towers. The comp will see release digitally and on a limited-run cassette on May 1st, the cassette run including both a digital download and a slick beer koozie. View the full track/band listing below, and place pre-orders here."
As a public preview to Keep Our Heads, The Obelisk has released a brand new track from riff-crushers Diesto -- a precursor for the band’s upcoming LP on Eolian this Summer -- alongside a peek at what is going on with this comp. Check it out right here. More...
