Cosmic Trigger

By: Laurie Gallardo

So. Damn. Heavy. Bid welcome to your doom metal overlords. (insert AMM host making metal sign with both hands)

But on another note: Seriously, that damn pandemic. Many musicians have their own stories about experiencing delays over tours, album releases, and merch, especially bands awaiting some sweet, sweet vinyl in ultra-cool color variants. Austin-based doom masters and longtime AMM fave Bridge Farmers had to wait a year and a half for their LP Cosmic Trigger in mystical lavender haze to arrive, but the results are totally worth it.

KUTX’s Ryan Wen recently gave a listen to the four-piece doom rockers’ latest, and was struck by its glorious heaviosity. And this is a quote: “…it will be the heaviest thing you’ve heard all year. Count on it.” The AMM enthusiastically concurs. Celebrate Cosmic Trigger with Bridge Farmers at their show tonight, Friday May 19, at The Lost Well, 2421 Webberville Rd. Experimental doom outfit Deep Cross and trad doom fiends Slumbering Sun are on the bill. Doors at 9 p.m. It’s all gonna rattle your ribcage.
