Event details

Shane Ocell of Via Vengeance began his musical career drumming for other bands - however, like many one-man acts he opted rather to expand his own duties than find other musicians that would take things where he wanted. All by contorting his right hand to accommodate both a drumstick and guitar pick, he thrashes out his sludgy, stoner metal without the aid of any backup musicians, stomp pads, or looping gear. This unusual, impressive skill has led him to be able to open up for the likes of Jesu and work with notable producer Matt Bayles (Mastodon, Isis) on Dieography, out late last year. Local instru-metal sludgers Samothrace have been laboring all summer on their debut for 20 Buck Spin records - plan on catching them soon as a 10-week tour is set to begin in early September.
