Swan King w/Forrest Of Tygers
While it’s no secret that our heavy music scene has been on the upswing as of late — tons of local bands, tons of touring bands, good shows all the damn time — it’s always nice to take a step back and really take stock of how things have changed. Remember when Asschapel broke up in the late ’00s? We must have cried ourselves to sleep every night for a month, it was so devastating. But the dark days are over, and The Swan King has returned! Featuring Asschapel’s high-shredder-in-charge Dallas Thomas, the Chicago band’s 2012 EP Pay to Pray is a heavy, melodic slab of visceral intensity, a supercharged four-song set of beguiling brutality that recalls the post-hardcore heritage of the late ’80s Upper Midwest.
