Bassist Brian Cook, guitarist David Knudson, drummer Tim Latona and vocalist Dave Verellen formed the legendary Tacoma, Washington mathcore/hardcore/metal band BOTCH in 1993, becoming one of the most ground-breaking and influential bands during a pivotal shift in heavy music before splitting in 2002. Their split made way for members to form and or to play in other highly notable and influential bands including Minus the Bear, These Arms Are Snakes, Narrows... They are coming back on stage in 2023.

GREAT FALLS

Read any article or comment thread about the Seattle noise-rock outfit Great Falls and you're likely to see descriptors like cathartic, heavy, crushing, and unhinged. Maybe even psychotic. And sure, those are all apt: For over a decade, vocalist/guitarist Demian Johnston (Kiss it Goodbye, Undertow, Playing Enemy) and bassist Shane Mehling (Playing Enemy) have honed their sludgy, overwhelmingly intense brand of heaviness, punctuated by delectably discordant riffs, terrifyingly low, thwacking bass lines, and mesmerizingly tight percussion. In the live setting, too, they’re notorious for a stage presence that is so aggressively confrontational and menacing that Mehling once broke his own arm mid-set.

But the most striking aspect of Great Falls, setting them apart from the murky sea of sludge metal and AmRep-inspired noise-rock bands, is their ability to paint a deeply, utterly human story through an all-out assault on the senses: an art the band has perfected on their fourth full-length album Objects Without Pain. The album is not only their Neurot Recordings debut, but also the first LP featuring drummer Nickolis Parks (Gaytheist, Bastard Feast), who joined the band prior to the release of their exhilarating, cacophonous EP Funny What Survives.

GREAT FALLS live at Saint Vitus Bar, Oct. 11th, 2023
