Chicago’s doom-metal titans Bongripper have been laying low over the past few months writing music for an upcoming full-length release. That’s not to say they’ve been completely MIA: this spring they sent forth into the world the molasses-thick, hellishly low-tuned opus “Zero Talent” on a split with Liverpool’s Conan, and then joined the fellow doom peddlers on tour in the United Kingdom. In addition, the group has recently released a newly minted vinyl pressing of their accurately billed 2010 full-length “Satan Worshipping Doom.” Fans eager to hear what Bongripper’s got brewing now should definitely check out their upcoming show at Township, as the band recently promised on their Facebook page a set of unheard material from the new release. Openers include Boise’s Uzala, Chicago doom/psych-rock band Mount Salem, and Mike Scheidt (of YOB). (Keidra Chaney)
