Daily Yinz – Monochromatic Residua – Eternal Mountain

Aaron Myers-Brooks's Monochromatic Residua project uses death metal as a vehicle to explore the power of microtones (AKA the notes you can't find on a piano). Monochromatic Residua's latest EP, Eternal Mountain, contains brutal blastbeats, apocalyptic imagery, and, of course, furious shredding that refuses to adhere to the chromatic scale. On the EP's title track, … Continue reading Daily Yinz – Monochromatic Residua – Eternal Mountain

Daily Yinz – Gator Shakes – East Coast Fear

Gator Shakes are a metalcore band that puts on one hell of a loud show (god I miss live music); their latest album, Well, Hell, came out last Friday. The album opens with vocalist Jake Morgan barely clinging to the end of a fraying rope, screaming, a capella, "Push! West! Leave! This! East! Coast! Fear!" … Continue reading Daily Yinz – Gator Shakes – East Coast Fear

Daily Yinz – Grîmmöld – Sirannon

Grîmmöld, a solo artist who uses medieval synth tones and blasts of screeching black metal to portray tales of creatures, magic, and adventure, recently released their Noldorin Halls EP.

Tolkien, mostly features winding instrumental passages that evoke mountain peaks and perilous encounters, the … Continue reading Daily Yinz – Grîmmöld – Sirannon

Daily Yinz – Feralcat and the Wild – Anselm the Wise

Feralcat returns to his signature combo of windblown sax runs and power metal acrobatics with "Anselm the Wise." Just a few weeks ago, Feralcat brought us some jazz-tinged, lo-fi instrumentals to relax/study to in the form of the wavy waiting for waifu. "Anselm the Wise" (featuring the full Wild) plants its flag at the opposite … Continue reading Daily Yinz – Feralcat and the Wild – Anselm the Wise

Daily Yinz – Hazing Over – Jock

Shin Guard is now Hazing Over, the name change signifying a shift from gritty skramz to futuristic deathcore. "Jock" is the first single from Hazing Over's upcoming Pestilence EP. The plinking rave synths that introduce "Jock," and, by proxy, Hazing Over, are a tip-off that this band is a different animal, one with a fresh … Continue reading Daily Yinz – Hazing Over – Jock

Daily Yinz – Panta Rhei – 133 189

Panta Rhei, an aleatoric (meaning that some element of composition is left up to chance) black metal project masterminded by prolific Pittsburgh noise artist RJ Myato, released a split album with the ever-bleak Thar Desert last month. The Panta Rhei side of Transmuter sounds like a supergroup consisting of corpse-painted Scandinavians and straight edge punks … Continue reading Daily Yinz – Panta Rhei – 133 189

Video Premiere – Fuzznaut – Form Is Emptiness

Emilio Rizzo (aka Fuzznaut) is a Pittsburgh guitar sorcerer whose live rendition of "Form Is Emptiness," the title track from Fuzznaut's stark, glacial 2019 release, premieres today on Bored In Pittsburgh. As Fuzznaut, Rizzo plays solo, allowing his downtuned, heavily distorted guitar chords to creep through empty space like the tentacles of some primordial leviathan. … Continue reading Video Premiere – Fuzznaut – Form Is Emptiness

Daily Yinz – Molasses Barge – A Grayer Dawn

Molasses Barge are a Pittsburgh-based doom metal band whose music does in fact sound like an immense viking ship cutting its way through a sea of thick, dark liquid. The title track off the group's new album, A Grayer Dawn (Argonauta Records), opens with a rollicking, stomping riff that evokes the stride of a metallic … Continue reading Daily Yinz – Molasses Barge – A Grayer Dawn

Daily Yinz – Automb – Serpent of the Night

Automb are a Pittsburgh-based black metal trio whose music embodies a level of apocalyptic majesty that is wholly appropriate for these ridiculous and frightening times. Automb's latest album, Chaosophy (Witching Hour Productions) dropped last week, and features on its cover a figure that looks to be one-third gnarled tree, one-third goat, and one-third grinning skull. … Continue reading Daily Yinz – Automb – Serpent of the Night
