Tonight on Rocket Shop we had Jake and Eli, the kickass drummer and bassist of the local melodic death metal quintet Vaporizer. Vaporizer’s self-titled EP was released in October of last year, and I gotta say, it’s one of the most solid locally-produced metal albums I’ve heard. The group often plays the weekly Nectar’s event Metal Mondays, organized by Matt Longo, and they’re playing a benefit show for one of our own Big Heavy tour vans Thursday at the monkey house. Jake and Eli are equally as funny as they are brutal, describing the vocals as being similar to those of “a very drunk troll”. Three tracks were played on air, including “Renegade Mage,” “Blood Oak,” and “Horn of the Narwhal”. Vaporizer is well-produced and ridiculously talented, and a welcome addition to the unjustly underrepresented genre that is stoner death metal.
