Last year, Tacoma sludge-metal band Mahnhammer established itself as one of this area's most popular hard rock acts. Then the band went abruptly AWOL after drummer Chris Roxx bailed for sunnier climes and sandy beaches in the Virgin Islands.
Clearly, he missed the drizzle and suffered a bad case of Grit City withdrawal. He's back, and his band had reloaded with new tunes and a big comeback gig set for Oct. 25 at Tacoma's New Frontier Lounge. You'll find more details in our Oct. 19 edition. Meanwhile, click on the video above to sample the mighty Mahnhammer in action, rockin' their Dome District practice pad Sunday night.
