Joe Preston is a hero to most most experimental drone doom-metal fans. The man from Melvins, Earth, and several other underground-popular indie metal bands is onstage tonight in his Thrones incarnation. For the uninitiated, Thrones is the loud, low, heavy soundtrack to a film that will never be made: an intelligent and contemplative indie horror flick, Blair Witch Project crossed with River's Edge plus some form of influence from Dead Man. The 15-year-old "side project" last put out Cerberic Doxology on Anthem Records last year.
Pins of Light and Common Eider, King Eider open.
