Yautja is a kind of a metal/noise-rock band from Nashville. D.U. had the pleasure of seeing the three-piece perform in Washington, D.C. a few years ago, and took notice when a new album, The Lurch, was announced.
The band takes different influences, that underground doom and metal fans will be at least somewhat familiar with, and puts it all together. There’s downtuned guitars, yelled vocals, busy rhythmic textures, slow atonal parts, and speedy blast beats.
