If the recent 100-degree days and relentless sunshine are getting you down, duck into the Doug Fir’s basement and wallow in the pitch-black sounds of Atriarch. The local quartet has been churning out lurching, death-obsessed rock since 2009, blurring the lines between sludge metal, droning doom, experimental noise, and strangled punk rock. Atriarch just released its fourth full-length album, Dead as Truth, on the world’s leading metal label, Relapse Records. It’s a harrowing slab of bleakness, with enough deep, dark anti-grooves to keep the devil’s excavation business busy for eternity. The band’s rhythm section (bassist Andrew Stromstad and drummer Maxamillion Avila) will crush your soul in slo-mo. Singer Lenny Smith possesses a hopeless howl and a ghastly groan. And guitarist Joshua Dark sounds like he’s scraping evil off the walls of hell. Together, they’re one of Portland’s nastiest bands, and Sunday, they play the Doug Fir with Inter Arma, psych-doom masters in town all the way from Richmond, Virginia. BEN SALMON
