Meet Pound, the experimental 2 piece from Seattle. A little math-y, a little grind-y, and a whole lot of heavy. Their brand of heavy is mot the run of the mill, however, as it spans multiple genres. Notable influences include Meshuggah, Car Bomb, . Their new release “••”, while instrumental only, is far from a passive listen.
The band manages to create an enormous sound, despite being just two people. Using a baritone 9-string guitar and a double drum kit, Ryan Schutte & David Stickney created this 8 track release, available to stream & for purchase on their bandcamp.
If you’re in the neighborhood, Pound has a couple shows scheduled.
