Despite being the bleakest year in our collective memory, 2017 had its bright spots. Um. There was… Uh… Well anyway, I’m sure at least one good thing happened in the world. It seems fitting to send off this politically/emotionally/meteorologically grueling year with a doom metal band called Churchburn. They’re based in Providence but don’t play here all that often, and since their 2014 album The Awaiting Coffins I think they’ve only put out one split 7″ (with Opium Lord). Also on the bill: Wreak, Red Mantis, and Black Acid Prophecy.
