Devil's Throne (Santa Fe)
Founded in Los Angeles in 2007 and fully realized in Santa Fe, NM in 2015, DEVIL’S THRONE, named after a foreboding geological monolith in the desert outside
of Santa Fe, is a love letter to their homeland of Northern New Mexico in the form of high-desert blackened doom. The lineup includes Ashley Romero on vocals, Pascual Romero and Randy Montoya on guitars and vocals, Niels Hansen on bass, and Marcus DiFillipo on drums.
GLAARE (Los Angeles)
"The LA trio should be commended for their approach to post-punk, which eschews the traditional, minimalist approach to the genre in favor a lush display of atmospheres from the melancholic rock canon. This is largely due to a heavy reliance on shoegaze aesthetics, with plenty of apparent influence from My Blood Valentine and Slowdive appearing at the core of the album’s sound. But don’t expect any soaring choruses or bright, shimmering walls of sound; Glaare offers up some of the most dismal shoegaze to ever seep out of the genre. The somber haze of guitar reverb intertwines with Rachael Pierce’s bold, powerful vocals for a dark, crushing delivery that maintains its grit throughout. The trio accents these influences further with generous portions of dream pop and darkwave informed by heavy goth sensibilities, with Pierce’s vocals truly tying these elements together and solidifying comparisons to Zola Jesus and Chelsea Wolfe." - Scott Murphy, Heavy Blog Is Heavy
"With a sound self described as “sort of like Asylum Party mixed with Sisters Of Mercy—maybe with a slight Nick Cave edge to it,” Fearmg have evolved from their punk and hardcore origins in a fashion not dissimilar The Blitz or many German Punk bands, who would eventually foray into more melodic work." - Post-Punk.com
LIŁITH is a Native American female fronted Ethereal Doom/Post-Metal/Folk Noir trio from the 4-corners area of AZ/NM. Using Feminism, Apocalyptic dystopian themes, and the Desert as there Foundation for creating there sound.
