Show Lineup


Genre: Blues, Doom Metal, Jazz

Messa play evoking doom metal with middle-eastern vibes. Deliciously haunting female vocals, 70’s guitars and arabian oudh combine to conjure a suond that is all of their own. With influences as diverse as Dead Can Dance, Om, Swans, Killing Joke, Electric Wizard, Thergothon, Current 93, the band has moved from the first occult then noir-tinted doom metal of their previous works to a new atmospheric mediterranean sound which is unique. The evolution is clearly showcased in their record “Close.”

Hello Death

(Milwaukee, WI)
Genre: Americana

Milwaukee group Hello Death walks the edge of the folk genre with heart wrenching cinematic compositions. Now performing as a five piece with the addition of percussionist Adam Krause, they’ve leaned into some heavier material employing elements of drone and psych rock, without forgoing the beautiful harmonies of three vocalists sharing the spotlight.

Milwaukee Record writes, “Moody folk outfit Hello Death excels at sparse, haunting music that works its way into your bones like a winter chill. Made up of members of Altos (Marielle Allschwang, Nathaniel Heuer, Shawn Stephany, Erin Wolf), the group doesn’t so much perform folk music as suggest it; Allschwang’s gorgeously airy alto, Heuer’s Nick Cave-esque baritone, and the group’s stripped-down instrumentation combine to form a sound that seems to pre-date music itself.”
