0 Fungal Abyss Residency at the Comet Tavern

Fungal Abyss is the sister project of Seattle prog-doom band LESBIAN. The band has the same founding core members as LESBIAN, and according to drummer Benjamin Thomas-Kennedy "Fungal Abyss explores freely improvised psychedelic spirituality rather than tightly composed metal journeys."

For anyone who experienced the first Fungal Abyss show at the Josephine some months ago. You know exactly how mezmerizing, mind blowing, and fucking trippy the dudes in Lesbian can be outside their typical progressive death sludge sound.

This Wednesday they play the first of a four show residency at the Comet Tavern. Each Wednesday throughout August an extended Lesbian line-up featuring ex-members of The Abodox will be joined by even more special guests to create otherwordly and downright mind frying psychedelic music.

Here is the official press release with all the info.
