Photos: Locrian at the Talking Head

The only way to describe last night's performance by Chicago's Locrian, is intense. In all senses of the word, this set was surely not for the faint of heart.

With more fog than I've pretty much ever seen used, Andre and Terence tore through a journey of sonic metal drudgery. Locrian started with blasting noise which lead down to a quiter synth, only to be overtaken by some hefty guitar riffs, that eventually took off like a helicopter. Definiltey take a listen to their most recent release, Drenched Lands.

I unfortunately couldn't hang around for the awesome noisey punk of the New Flesh, but check out some shots of them opening for Double Dagger here. Also, they'll be playing Whartscape on Saturday in the MICA parking lot next to Joe Squared.
