(Columbia City Theater) If you're going to open a show for Helms Alee and Sandrider, you had better be ready to fucking BRING IT. It being the storm, the noise, the ear-blasting slaughter capable of drowning 1,000 men with one riff. And Lowmen Markos do! But without being so obvious about it. The instrumental foursome creeps up on you slowly, with songs that stretch out for seven or nine minutes, and stalk you like the prey that you are. Check out their fairly new EP Flames at lowmenmarkos.bandcamp.com. You'll really dig it if you're into bands like Russian Circles or Pelican, or wandering through dark woods alone, during a full moon, on an autumn night.
