The names Stuart Dahlquist and Edgy59 should ring a bell if you hold the more adventurous realms of doom and drone metal in high regard. Previously, Stuart played bass in the cvlt-approved Burning Witch, and then shifted focused to his (highly underrated) Asva project. Ex and current band mate, Edgy59, is
Maybe I’m biased due to my proximity to Philadelphia – and it being the only place nearby where I can consistently see good shows – but I can say with confidence that it has one of the coolest scenes in the country. I’m not talking just about there being some
