Vow of Volition Make the Final Round of the Battle for Warped Tour

The Vans Warped Tour was the first festival for many of us back in the day. As young'ns, it's likely we didn't necessarily think about all that went into figuring out the bands to book and play the whole shebang. Part of that process, at least locally, seems to be through a series "battle of the bands" style competitions specifically for landing a spot on the fest. Quite a few Portland bands have been furiously playing against one another for said spot, and djent/prog metal act Vow of Volition are one of the acts that made it to the finals.

Warped Tour was always the type of festival that included much in the realm of pop punk, punk punk, emo and metal, so Vow of Volition's advancement to the final round is no surprise. Their incredibly technical, at times jazzy metal stands out in Portland's pretty linear popular music scene, and is much worthy of the attention its getting.

Those that want to support Vow of Volition in driving home the permanent spot can go to the Battle for Warped Tour finals Saturday at the Hawthorne Theatre.





Metal trio Mutoid Man tours with Danzig

Sludgy, frenetic, and surprisingly melodic, Mutoid Man serves up nasty, heavy jams with a side of skilled riffage.  Their latest release, War Moans, is 12-tracks worth of head spinning metal aptitude, and - paired with a ground shattering live show - opened the door to a summer US tour with Danzig - dates can be found here. Our friends at Delicious Audio were very curious to know what kind of gear went into making their signature gut-busting sound - check out the link below for a Q&A about it. - by Olivia Sisinni

RETURN FOR REFUND - "LIFT YOU UP"

Toronto based hard rock band Return for Refund have released a brand new video for the title track from their latest release “Lift You Up”. This tune kicks off with some nice guitar licks that remind me of some Jerry Cantrell moves. The whole tune goes in that direction with its heavy riffs and controlled pace. Add in a fiery solo and you got yourself a rock tune. Sweaty noisy rock like the way it used to be. Your next chance to see Return for Refund is August 26th at the Horseshoe Tavern – Kris Gies
