Cursus Album Release

If super-slow distorted guitar riffing, growling vocals and drums that sound like a building implosion is what you’re into, then welcome to Cursus. For those unfamiliar with the extreme-metal sub-genre, it’s pretty easy to guess what something labeled doom metal or sludge or “funeral doom” sounds like: dark, heavy and sloooooow. In 2013, guitar and vocalist C.J. Duron and drummer Sarah Ann Roork started writing their early Sabbath- and Eyehategod-inspired blend of down-tuned, down tempo metal. A few months later the duo (who have been a couple for about 8 years) released their Summer Solstice Demo, which was well received in the regional metal and DIY music community. “We’re not trying to sound like what we’ve heard over and over, but there are definitely some elements of [music] we grew up with that are embedded in what we do,” Duron told the Current. The band’s eponymously named debut is already available online through the Houston-based label Artificial Head and the band has plans to tour after the album release show. With Percocet, Toluca and Grupo Frackaso.

Coordinate your Halloween costumes with your bestie/S.O.
Halloween costumes aren’t just for kids expecting bucketfuls of candy, and coordinating your spooky digs with your partner, your platonic ride-or-die, or even a group of couples is a great way to get creative for the holiday. Whether you want your costume theme to lean a little spooky (Joker and Harley Quinn, Jason and Freddy, a horde of zombies!) or classic (peanut butter and jelly, Daphne and Velma, Dorothy and her Wizard of Oz posse), there is power in numbers, and you are sure to dominate any local costume contest if you get crafty with it.
