Black Lodge

Woah.  I know what you're thinking: "That's totally the cover of the new Thor movie that's coming out, right?" That's sweet. But, no! It's....

Black Lodge! And their new self titled debut EP!

For those that don't know, the band Black Lodge is from Hollywood California (must be nice) and features Gavin Reign (vocals), Johnny Royal (lead guitar), Christopher Royal (rhythm guitar), Ventura XIII (bass guitar), and Justin Greene (drums).

Released October 22, 2013, the album includes a kind of "sneak preview" of their first full album set to come out in 2014, The Diary of Tomahawk. The advance EP includes 6 songs that will be featured again when the full album is released:

  1. A Thousand Faces
  2. Drag
  3. Never Clean
  4. Firewalker
  5. Breviculum
  6. Thankful
Looking to try out a song or two from Black Lodge's album? Try "Drag" and "Breviculum." Both give a good feel of the guitar and lyrical magic. Their use of synthetics backed up by heavy guitar phrasing and angsty, agressive lyric style make the band live up to its classification as an industrial-rock band. Unsure if that seems like your thing? Check out other artists you might know that also have a post-grunge and alternative rock or metal sound:
