READER-SUGGESTED METAL BANDS THAT HAPPEN TO HAVE AT LEAST ONE MEMBER WITH A VAGINA, PART 3: EMBERS
Alright, so Embers was not actually suggested to me by a reader – MS staffer Bob Cock told me about them. But they’re a good band and they have at least one and possibly two female members, so I’m writin’ about ’em.
This is basically the kind of atmospheric, charcoal-black metal that (I think) Satan Rosenbloom spends a fair amount of time listening to. If you despise so-called “beardo metal,” you probably won’t like this – but if the bill to this year’s Scion Festival got you feeling all tingly where your bathing suit covers, than I imagine you’ll dig it.
There are some vaguely more symphonic elements to Embers’ music than that of the bands I imagine they get lumped in with – I mean, they have a viola player, for Chrissake – but anyone who interprets “symphonic” to mean “Cradle of Filth-esque” is going to be sorely disappointed.
Check out Embers and let us now what you think in the comments section below.
