The sound of impending doom, mechanically. This is what I thought the first time I heard Gnaw. Utilizing a largely atmospheric soundscape, the thunderous drums, buzzsaw guitars, and strained, echoing vocals portray a world wrapped in barb-wired slow burn, uniquely dark and resonating. Picture Hellraiser in music form.
Along with Bad Friends, Braincandy, Achillea, and Theatre Nocturne, Gnaw will be taking our ears and minds to another place tonight at the Funeral Home (7pm, $8). This is one of those shows everybody's going to be talking about all year. Do yourself a favor and be part of that discussion.
