Two-Man Band Heavy Night

Thunderchief has been Rik Surly’s solo-vision, one-man assault of sludge-doom for years now. With Erik Larson added on drums—and a slew of new recordings, including a full length—the two-man assault is now out playing and slaying.

Thunderchief and Suppression played together at local RVA outsider venue, Another Round, for a super rad night of heavy sludge, doom, and destruction. It was a great show and cool to see a double two-man band night. I thoroughly enjoyed the heavy, thundering power, sludgy doom, and the variety of gnarly riffs and guttural growls and screams that are Thunderchief.
