Longtime music writer and KEXP DJ Hannah Levine helped NPR Music compile an extensive list of bands from the Pacific Northwest that favor heavier, doom-laden sounds. The result is a compelling audio mix of songs that highlights a burgeoning music scene. Bands like Absolute Monarchs, Lesbian, Black Breath, He Whose Ox is Gored, Red Fang and more are at the forefront of a heavy metal revival. There are also nods to founding fathers of the moevement (like the Melvins and Sleep) as well as recent notable acts (such as These Arms Are Snakes, Akimbo, and Triumph of Lethargy). It’s a thoughtful primer to the darker side of rock in the Northwest.
