OM • drone metal, experimental • Watter

Universal Sound

Local heavy metal legend Al Cisneros brings his dark, droning psych-rock collaboration with Emil Amos, an eldritch thing called OM, to the stage at Sister (407 Central NW) on Saturday, April 19. Cisneros, of influential doom band Sleep, and Amos—who also drums in PDX post-rock outfit Grails and conjures soundscapes with Alex Hall in Lilacs & Champagne—are well known in both these parts and the metal universe for generating sounds that are massive, entrancing and louder than goddamned hell. OM takes its moniker from the Hindu concept for the sound the universe makes; if that descriptor is anywhere near the ensemble’s musical truth, then this world’s vast emptiness is a triumphantly noisy affair that careens between chaos and transcendence. Robert Lowe's contributions to the band’s latest release, Advaitic Songs, and touring efforts add a shimmery crunch to OM’s cosmically unpronounceable, sonically arcane journey. But why read words that attempt to describe something all-at-once too simple and complicated to make words out of ... when you can take the trip yourself for 10 bucks. Opening act Watter—featuring Britt Walford of Slint and Grails' Zak Riles—takes the stage at 10pm, and this show is 21-plus. (August March)
