There’s a new band on the scene, folks, and it’s got a great name.
Black Map boasts Dredg guitarist Mark Engles. Dredg are not metal, but they’re a fucking great progressive rock band.
At least that’s how I classify them.
Former Far drummer Chris Robyn is also in the group, along with The Trophy Fire’s vocalist and guitarist Ben Flanagan.
No word yet on how the band came together, but Black Map are gigging.
The group will play their first show at the Rickshaw Stop in San Francisco on September 7.
Judgement Day, Death Valley High and others will also take the stage during the show.
