Generation of Vipers w/MinskPop/Rock
It’s been a while since we’ve heard anything from Minsk — the Illinois-based psychedelic doom metal band, that is. We’re not talking about the capital of Belarus of the same name, though we’ll have to fess up to not knowing a whole lot about what’s been going on there in recent years either. What we do remember about Minsk the band is the long, Hawkwind-indebted sprawls, and riffs that swirl and pulsate as layer after layer is piled on. It’s a formula the band best put to use on 2009’s With Echoes in the Movement of Stone, which has recently been reissued as a double LP. Joining them Saturday at Springwater are Tennessee’s own purveyors of low-end heaviness: Cookeville’s spaced-out Hellbender, Knoxville’s sludge-y Generations of Vipers and Nashville’s doom duo Brother Ares.
