SXSW Music 2011 Day 3: Part 2

The fantastic “South by South Death” earlier in the day would be a tough act to follow, but perhaps the best night show was set for the night of March 18th: The Metalliance Tour.

Following up the best day show yet, was the biggest official SXSW metal show: The Metalliance SXSW stop. The Metalliance tour featured an excellent lineup including The Atlas Moth, Howl, Red Fang, Weedeater, Kylesa, Crowbar, Helmet and Saint Vitus. The show was the first I’d attended at the Dirty Dog. It was a decent sized place, but not exactly laid out well for the crowd that would fill it that night.

I arrived while The Atlas Moth was playing. They had just a couple songs left in their set. The first thing I noticed is that the bass sounded very loud. It gave a groovier feel to their music and most of the bands who played that night for that matter. Their last two songs sounded pretty decent, even if bass-heavy.

Howl was up next and played a short set of their groovy style of doom. Still getting drinks and settled in, their set flew by with little sticking out to me, however. More...

The Atlas Moth Announces Covers EP

Candlelight Records will release a digital-only covers EP from Chicago's The Atlas Moth on September 28th, 2010. Titled "The One Amongst the Weed Fields," the EP contains renditions of "California Dreamin’" (The Mamas & The Papas), "Fearless" (Pink Floyd), "Golden" (Failure), and "Five to One" (The Doors).

The Atlas Moth guitarist/vocalist Stavros’ explains, "We have been thinking about doing a covers EP for a while. Thirteen-hour drives with only a radio to entertain you eventually takes a toll. But every once in a while we’d hear a song pop up that would strike us as something we all wanted to make into a ‘Moth song. These are the few we came up with from a terribly long list, and we are pretty proud of the outcome. It was a great way to have some fun, produce something new, and do a little pre-production for our new album which we hope to record later this year."

Stereogum has premiered a the track from the EP, in the form of "Golden" by Failure. Check it out at this location. The Atlas Moth will also be on tour with Nachtmystium, Zoroaster, and Dark Castle on the following dates: More...
