Photos: Sleep with Evoken, Inter Arma and Solar Halos at Hopscotch Fest

Sleep

After Thursday’s ASG gig and Friday’s cramped Pig Destroyer and Gorguts blowout, Hopscotch Fest’s metal component reached a fever pitch with a doomed-out Lincoln Theater bill starring Sleep, Evoken and Inter Arma.

I wasn’t at this show, but I envy those who were. Inter Arma are responsible for one of this year’s finest albums, and they have been honing their live show — which was already devastating — relentlessly all year. Evoken stood tall amidst stiff competition in the death/doom game last year. And the reunited version of Sleep, which features the amazing Jason Roeder of Neurosis on drums, is a force of nature. I’ve only seen them once, back in 2010 at the Brooklyn Masonic Temple. When Matt Pike leaned into the first chord of the set, the whole building came tantalizingly close to collapse.
