Portland's SubArachnoid Space sets its gun not on "stun," but "trance." Heavy angular riffs that vibe old King Crimson and newer metalgaze outfits such as Pelican blast waves of dark and creepy psychedelic power. Helmed by San Fran ex-pat Melynda Jackson, their newest album Eight Bells explores every nook and cranny of her inner arachnoid chambers, such as the claustrophobic "Lilith." With Child Abuse, OVO, and Gnaw.
