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."
Invisible Oranges is now streaming the entire third LP from morose crust quintet, Nux Vomica, set for release on April 1st via Relapse Records. Give it a listen below. Relapse also comments:
"Closing a five-year gap since Nux Vomica's last full-length release, the record was recorded throughout 2011-2012 at Haywire Studios in Portland, Oregon.
"Blending the suffocating atmospherics of the doom/sludge with the raw ferocity of black metal, punk and d-beat crust, the band's organic heaviness comparably hangs in limbo somewhere between Neurosis and His Hero Is Gone.
"Their self-titled album delivers three epic tracks, creating a forty-minute emotional odyssey into the depths of human darkness; a flawless combination of epic song structures with crushing melodies and colossal riffs with powerful dynamics." More...

"Following their previously released LPs -- 2007's A Civilized World and 2009's Asleep in Ashes -- among a plethora of splits and a 7" release, Nux Vomica's first recording for the mighty Relapse and first full-length from the band in over five years was recorded throughout 2011-2012 at Haywire Studios.
"Blending the suffocating atmospherics of the doom/sludge with the raw ferocity of black metal, punk and d-beat, Nux Vomica constructs an organic heaviness comparably hanging somewhere in the balance between Neurosis and His Hero Is Gone.
"Their self-titled album delivers more than forty minutes of the band's torrid style through three massive works, creating an emotional odyssey into the depths of human darkness; a flawless combination of epic song structures with crushing melodies and colossal riffs with powerful dynamics."
Stated the band collectively on the upcoming release: "We are proud to release our new LP, Nux Vomica, on Relapse Records! It's been a long time in the making, and is our third full length LP after a decade of being a band. We think it represents the pinnacle of our musical achievements so far. In other words... we think this is our best shit yet and we are fucking stoked!" More...
