We stoked to make Strange Matter once again your HEAVY MUSIC HEADQUARTERS this Spring. There's plenty of it happening all over town, but we're fuckin drenched in it all season long. This oppressively heavy double bill (and what we think to be a double RVA premiere for both) features the absolutely crushing and expanse doom of Iowa City and Thrill Jockey Records' own ASEETHE. They'll be accompanied by Canada and Halo of Flies self-proclaimed "angry queer gloom cult" VILE CREATURE. This disgustingly brutal duo is equally crushing and organically melds doom with elements of black/death/psychedelia and more. Locally they'll be supported by new sludge unit from the ashes of the sorely missed Melt comes GRIM SLEEPER!! We'll be adding one more local...stay tuned!

Aseethe from Iowa City, IA, the doom trio has a singular emphasis on crushing doom that utilizes space and repetition, taking a tip from drone music.
