BAND PROFILE

ASKEVAULT

Metal

The riff is alive and well in the hands of local death metal act Askevault. Visualize piles of bones and impending doom (the art for their song “Trench Teeth” features a World War I-era image of a man poised to bayonet another); the band’s screaming, sludgy sounds are the aural equivalent. Self-described as “idiot crust,” Askevault rose from the ashes of Bay Area rockers Femacoffin, and they’re driven, according to their Bandcamp page, by a disgust of “where things are going these days.”
