Friday 06 April 2018 – Pegstar Presents: Whores * Bummer * Omotai * SUMOKEM (all ages)

Whores (Atlanta, GA)
https://www.whoresband.com/

Established in 2010 in Atlanta, Georgia, the trio has established themselves as one of the most successful and motivated bands in the genre today. Elements of Helmet, Melvins, and the Amphetamine Reptile roster can be heard throughout their catalog, but Whores are no regurgitated throwback act. Through intense, cathartic live performances and the perfected aggressive tenacity present on their recordings, the band has gained a fervent following sure to do nothing but grow in the years to come.

 

“Atlanta’s “new kings of noise rock” Whores have hit the proverbial big time. With a two EPs that have achieved near-cult classic status in the noise rock underground and countless cross-country tours, over the past five years the band has managed to gain the kind of respect usually reserved for acts that have been pounding the pavement for decades. At the helm is veteran musician Christian Lembach, whose knack for combining sludgy, crushing riffs and immense walls of feedback is amplified further during the band’s hypnotic live show. By all accounts, Lembach has never given less than his all for a crowd, and this assertion is validated by his tireless dedication to fan accessibility.” – NOISEY

 

Bummer (Kansas City, MO)

Rock ‘n’ roll music for the future cavemen of America.

 

Omotai (Houston, TX)
http://www.omotai.com/

Omotai is a rarity in the world of the heavy – a curious stylistic alloy, a band wielding the stoner metal truncheon with math rock deliberation. The apoplexy of each gnashing riff, conveyed live via a massive wall of amplification, is enough to bring flesh as well as the surrounding atmosphere to a target resonance, the audience appropriated as a biological component of the sonic transmission.
The Houston metal outfit was formed in December 2009 by Sam Waters (guitar, vocals) and Anthony Vallejo (drums, vocals). They recruited Melissa Lonchambon Ryan (bass guitar, vocals) a month later and hit the studio almost immediately to pump out their debut EP Peace Through Fear, taking cues from 80’s thrash, 90’s noise rock, grindcore and sludge. Their sophomore effort, Terrestrial Grief, distilled Peace’s strongest points, upping the math and whiplash quotients by several orders of magnitude.

Rapidly garnering a rep for punishingly loud live performances, with an emphasis on speed and aberrant rhythms, the trio toured the US between 2010 and 2012, sharpening their skills alongside Yob, the Sword, Big Business, Hammerhead and countless other bands. In 2013, after constant writing and the third release,Fresh Hell, looming, they took on guitarist/vocalist Jamie Ross. It’s proven a smart investment for the band, with Ross’s shred adding a new dimension to Ryan and Waters’ already pummeling wall of riffery.

 

SUMOKEM (Little Rock, AR)
https://sumokem.bandcamp.com/

“What Sumokem does with this absolutely stunning debut full length The Guardian Of Yosemite is drown us under potent riffs couched in top notch production, reminding the listener once again how great this genre can be.
It’s easy to get lost in Sumokem’s trademark mesmerizing riffs. The sheer might and forward momentum that a song like War Pipe/Rite Of Calumet brings is stunning… …potent remonstrations guide us through dark sonic landscapes towards ultimate triumph.
Chock to the brim with guitarmonies and an exciting sense of progression, the long form tracks that define The Guardian Of Yosemite never get boring – even the solos remain fun and touch on the almost over the top nature of the band. Sumokem understand exactly what their fans want from a doom band and paint the picture well. Touching on all the tropes, executing perfectly and then bringing exciting new elements into the music it’s hard to not fall victim to this bands nearly infinite appeal.” – Matt Bacon, Two Guys Metal Reviews
“The vocals soar melodically over passages of Southern guitar dirges that hearken back nostalgically to the heyday of MASSIVE Southern riffs.” – Josh Foster, Phantom Killer Promotions “It makes me want to watch pornography and smoke pot.”
