Ceremony of Sludge: Lamprey, Serial Hawk, Tsepesch, Beard of Bees 

When: Fri., March 7, 9 p.m. 2014
Price: free
You know damn well what you're getting when a two-day fest bears a name like Ceremony of Sludge. This year kicks off with a peek at the Pacific Northwest's up-and-coming metallurgists (of which there's no shortage). Locals Lamprey do doom with a blast of '70s Camaro exhaust, and Tsepesch sounds like an awakened mythical beast laying waste to New York. Not much is known about Salem two-piece Beard of Bees—not to be confused with the Illinois band of the same name—but I'm hopeful they'll be sporting beards o' bees. Serial Hawk will make the trip from Seattle. Their stuff is slow and doomy, but also dexterous; at high volumes, they might make you lose control of your bowels. Dress accordingly. MARK LORE
