BLACK ELK, DIESTO, ROANOKE

(Ground Kontrol, 511 NW Couch) It’s fitting that the release party for Diesto’s stellar Isle of Marauder will take place surrounded by a ring of video games. The local quartet’s sprawling metal is ripe for the escapism that Ground Kontrol’s quarter-hungry bounty has to offer, right down to the cover of Marauder, which depicts some sort of winged pterodactyl with feathered wings and skeleton talons primed to fuck some shit up. The music follows suit with an endless array of thick metal guitar riffs that drown everything else out in a hazy sludge of noise, the lone exception being the desperate screech of vocalist Chris Dunn, who sounds as one might when reaching one’s bloody fate in the clutched grasp of a prehistoric bird of prey.
