A photographic account of heavy music in Portland, Maine

1,000 percent Sylvia.

That was the predicted outcome last night at Geno’s when Michael Anderson made his debut as Sylvia‘s drummer, elevating the band’s already untouchable set into something stratospheric.

From the opening gallop of “The Toad,” it was clear the band has hit its stride. The familiar material is now leaner, more muscular, and somewhat terrifying, like a stampede of horses or a runaway combine. Anderson attacks the kit like a machine, daring the listener to get caught in its pulverizing gears.

This promises to a big year for the band.

(Unfortunately, we missed Mugwort. Again. Luckily, they’re headlining a show next month at SPACE Gallery with J. Morse’s latest project Nycterent.)

Yes, we’re monsters.
