RED MOON RISING - Chicago Blackened Ceremonial Crust!

Living in Chicago, I am always amazed at just how many great bands and artist lurk our city. I don't get out as much as I once did but after hearing Red Moon Rising, I just might have to muster the energy and check them out.

Formed around 2015, the band mixes elements of crust, grind, doom and black metal. Partnering with both Dystopian Cult Records & WarCrust Records, they have released a few cassette's and also a split with Arid, Ultor, and M.A.D.

Fronted by an incredible force named Carrie, just seeing her command an audience the way she does serves a reminder that women are fucking equal in music. I admire her fierce presence that is backed by an equally ferocious band of hoodlums. She also likes to wear a ski mask which she makes look bad-ass. It is the music though that got me interested. If you are a fan of blackened crust, this will be right up your alley. When a band can mix these elements and actually transcend the sound properly, it's powerful.

Check them out on Bandcamp and Facebook.
