Q and bassist Justin DeTore, or the riffing of guitarists Chris Corry and Dan Ducas, which seems to have gotten even more in line with traditional/classic metal on their newer songs. They didn’t give a name for the second record, but “The Damned Man,” “Lightning Cage” and set opener “Journey Blind” were distinguished by faster tempos offsetting doomed riffs and an aggressive — in the case of “Lightning Cage,” almost thrashing — rendering. That might have been a symptom of the live setting, or it might be¬†Magic Circle¬†tapping into their Boston hardcore roots. In any case, they made it work and having gotten a taste, I’m even more intrigued to find out what the whole of their sophomore outing will bring upon its arrival later this year.

They had new material.¬†Mos Generator¬†had a new band. Founding guitarist/vocalist¬†Tony Reed¬†swapped out¬†drummer¬†Shawn Johnson¬†and bassist¬†Scooter Haslip for¬†Scotty VanDweller¬†and¬†Sean Booth, respectively, earlier this year, Mos Generator (Photo by JJ Koczan)and as I understand it, at least part of the reason why was to facilitate touring.¬†Reed¬†announced from the stage that it was¬†Mos Generator‘s first time on the East Coast in many years, and¬†AS220¬†gave them due welcome as they ran through songs mostly from 2012’s¬†Nomads¬†(review here) and last year’s¬†Electric Mountain Majesty¬†(review here), making highlights of “Beyond the Whip,” the slower “Early Mourning” and the title-track of the latter, which offered the evening’s most unabashed boogie. “Lonely One Kenobi” and set-finale “This is the Gift of Nature” featured from¬†Nomads¬†and provided a fitting showcase for the burgeoning dynamic between¬†Reed,¬†Booth¬†and¬†VanDweller. They had been playing more or less nightly since the middle of February, and if I’m not mistaken, had driven two days from Minneapolis to Providence for this gig, so while one might’ve gotten the sense of this version of the band being a recent advent — and mind you, if I didn’t know that going in, I’m not sure I would have — they’d already had a couple weeks to start smoothing rough edges, and it showed.

And since it’s worth specifically pointing out, I stood in front of¬†Booth‘s bass amp for mos generator 3 (Photo by JJ Koczan)the set and his tone was an absolute delight.¬†VanDweller¬†had more than enough swing to carry across¬†Mos Generator‘s classic influences, and¬†Reed¬†made a charismatic frontman — the only other time I’ve seen him on stage was with¬†Stone Axe, in which he played guitar and handled backup vocals — goading the crowd after each song and reminding the room “We’re working hard up here!” before laughing at how long he’s used that line, but in true West Coast form,¬†Booth¬†fed his bass through a Verellen Meat Smoke preamp, and at least from where I was positioned, there was a good part of the set that played out like a commercial for the thing. Obviously that’s not all there is to developing a tone, but it certainly didn’t hurt.¬†Mos Generator¬†will be back on the Eastern Seaboard this summer for the¬†Eye of the Stoned Goat 5¬†after finishing out this tour and, if I’m not mistaken, hitting¬†Europe, and I’ll look¬†forward to checking out how the intervening time on the road has brought them together.

elder 1 (Photo by JJ Koczan)So we’ve gone from new material to new band, and with¬†Elder, it’s a new album.¬†Lore¬†turned plenty of heads in the weeks leading up to its Feb. 24 release through¬†Armageddon Shop¬†(Stickman Records¬†in Europe), and positioned as the evening’s headliner, drummer¬†Matt Couto, bassist¬†Jack Donovan¬†and guitarist/vocalist¬†Nick DiSalvo¬†gave the album its due, playing it front to back for the packed-out¬†AS220. No doubt the room would’ve been more familiar with the record a little further down the line, but it’s hard to call it a release show two months later, and “Compendium,” “Legend,” “Lore,” “Deadweight” and “Spirit at Aphelion” had no trouble winning the crowd over. Though it was upwards of 20 degrees and still very much winter outside as the sheets of ice and piles of dirty frozen snow on the sidewalk could attest, up near the stage it was broiling hot, and it’s not exactly as if¬†Elder‘s winding riffs are simple or like the spiraling prog-rock apex of “Legend” requires little effort. Like¬†Reed¬†and company before them,¬†Elder¬†were also working hard up there.

For a good cause, though.¬†Elder¬†will spend most of the rest of this month¬†on tour, hitting¬†SXSW, the Midwest and of course the East Coast, and while they’ve done strings of dates in Europe before, and while they’ll play¬†Psycho California¬†this May ensuring at least a little time out west, their arrival as a “touring band” feels due. They could complete this run, do the Psycho CA¬†fest,¬†and not book anything else for the rest of the year. That’s entirely possible, but I don’t think it’s the way things are going to play out, and the vitality they showedelder 2 (Photo by JJ Koczan) on stage looked sustainable. That is to say,¬†Elder¬†seemed ready at¬†AS220¬†for the task they’d set for themselves. Their sound has progressed from the stoner roots of their 2008 self-titled through 2011’s¬†Dead Roots Stirring¬†(review here) and the subsequent 2012 EP,¬†Spires Burn/Release¬†(streamed here), and¬†Lore¬†is a fitting snapshot of where their creative evolution is now: Clear-headed, crisp in its delivery¬†and the beneficiary of some of the best elements of their prior work. I missed¬†the extra Mellotron-esque guitar layers in what on the record is the highlight moment of the title-track, I’ll be honest, and there were some kinks to iron out in changes elsewhere, but their enjoyment of the songs felt earnest, and they played like a band hitting their stride, which is more than one could feasibly ask for the first night of a tour.

One could see it even in the visual continuity on stage between¬†DiSalvo,¬†Couto¬†and¬†Donovan, elder 3 (Photo by JJ Koczan)their comfort with each other’s style. Right down to how they stood, with¬†Donovan¬†turning to face the others, completing a sort of semi-circle with¬†DiSalvo¬†also angled slightly inwards and¬†Couto¬†in the middle, facing out, they looked like a professional band who had sorted out what they wanted to do and how they wanted to do it. Their sound was the same way, and though they’d played for an hour, when they were done and the house lights came up, people were still shouting for more. Rightfully so. On a night where each act had something fresh¬†to offer the room,¬†Elder¬†not only presented their third¬†album to mark the occasion of its release, but stood on the precipice of a new era for themselves, and jumped, loudly, into its beginning.
