A photographic account of heavy music in Portland, Maine
Big noise comes from small packages.
Perhaps for the first time ever, Geno’s compact, matter-of-fact stage seemed like a wide expanse of negative space, especially when inhabited by the two members of Connecticut doom outfit Bedroom Rehab Corp.
BRC is one of the gutsiest bands in the land. Whereas bass and drums are generally a starting point — a workmanlike foundation upon which decorative things are built — drummer Meghan Killimade and bassist/singer Adam Wujtewicz saw an end product. This would be a foolhardy venture for almost anyone else, but Killimade and Wujtewicz have the raw power and fearlessness to pull it off in grand style, filling the negative space with spectacle and flawless rhythm.
Both Swarmlord and BRC stood in stark contrast to the Black Friday setting, proving the adage that less is more.
