Thursday To-Do: Lord Dying

LORD DYING
8 p.m. Vino's. $10.


The opening track of "Summon the Faithless," last year's debut album by Portland metal band Lord Dying, is called "In a Frightful State of Gnawed Dismemberment." The cover is wild and sort of beautiful: a three-eyed, green-robed figure has a skull for a face, a long serpentine tongue and werewolf hands, with which he's holding up an hourglass. In the background are steep crags, a winged demon and a moon with a face. The band says Portland is "a region where the inhabitants are plagued with nerve and joint damage due to lack of sunlight," which rings true. Based only on the information I've provided here, you can probably make a pretty informed decision as to whether or not this is a show you'll enjoy. If you're on the fence, go. Also on the bill are Enchiridion, Iron Tongue and Godcity Destroyers.
