A photographic account of heavy music in Portland, Maine

PHOTOS: Eastern Spell and Dead by Now

The two-day run at Empire is over and nothing got broken.

See? Metalheads can have nice things.

Don’t get us wrong. We love the come-as-you-are vibe at Geno’s and Mathew’s (and, frankly, it’s the only look we can pull off), but it was a sweet change of pace to see some of our favorite musicians illuminated under bright lights and swathed in a cool blanket of electric fog. Let’s hope this is the start of a bright future for Portland’s heavyweights.

Speaking of Geno’s and Mathew’s … Tonight, both locations are throwing heavy shows. Mathewsfest II kicks off today at 5 p.m. and features Mouth Washington, Swamp Water and more. At Geno’s it’s a four-band lineup starting with über-precise Portlanders Dead by Now and out-of-towners Scalpel, Kaos Reign and Lightsbane.

(We have a paying gig at the ass crack of dawn tomorrow, so we’ll be taking the night off. Have fun, er’rybody.)

Despite all this, we’re not monsters.
