The Empty Bottle & Scorched Tundra Present

IN THE COMPANY OF SERPENTS

IN THE COMPANY OF SERPENTS traffic in sonic catharsis. Their music inhabits the strange fringes between sludge metal and sprawling spaghetti western scores. Fans of Neurosis, Goatsnake, Eagle Twin and Electric Wizard admire In The Company of Serpents constant striving for visceral power and raw intensity, contrasted with eerie, spare instrumental passages. The elusive Denver trio returns to Chicago for the first time since Scorched Tundra X, having released its critically acclaimed fourth album Lux in May 2020.

HIVE

Formed in 2014 by guitarist and vocalist Morgan Carpenter and drummer Mike Paradise (Antiverse), HIVE draws heavily from Scandinavian D-beat, Pacific Northwestern hardcore punk, and the legendary Minneapolis crust scene of their hometown. Drawing from their collective years in veteran hardcore bands such as Threadbare, Bosnia, Disembodied, and many more dating back to the early 1990’s, Hive has already left a dark cloud over the United States hardcore scene, particularly in the Midwest. In 2015, the band self-recorded and released their first 6 song self titled EP on limited edition cassette and 12” vinyl. The first proper full length LP, Parasitic Twin, was released by Crown And Throne Ltd. in 2017. 2018 saw Hive collaborating on a split 7” with fellow Minneapolis hardcore band No Skin. Most recently, in January of 2019, Hive distilled the same angst and paranoia of their previous efforts while confiscating the claustrophobia and lawlessness of their live shows. The result is Most Vicious Animal, 12 songs of bulldozing hardcore that rarely gives listeners a chance to breathe. Recorded entirely in two days while tracking in the same room together, the band was able to achieve a more brash and aggressive album compared to their previous releases. The album was released on all formats by known accomplices Crown And Throne Ltd. and Seeing Red Records in August 2019. Hive has carved out their own denomination through underground punk and is welcomed and shunned by their peers in equal measure. Their cabal is undoing and the only haven is death.

ROMAN RING

An anomaly amongst the Chicago metal scene, ROMAN RING fuses together elements rarely heard from their local peers. Combining blistering speed and technicality with passages of polyrhythmic grooves along with other-worldly influences. Their music will take you on a journey to another dimension before bringing you back to this earth as an evolved being. Halogen, ROMAN RING's third album and first in six years, was released in May 2020, setting a new standard for technical and progressive-inspired death metal in Chicago.
