Sons of Huns

In a city like Portland, Oregon, where there are quite literally hundreds of people 
playing heavy music – and playing it well, at that – it takes a bold, tightly-honed 
punch to the crowd’s ears in order to stand out. Formed in the winter of 2009 and 
armed with a full stack of Orange cabs, a lifetime of experience and enough classical 
training to out-riff any band that dares stand in their SG-wielding path, Sons of Huns 
have consistently blown crowds away. Peter Hughes (guitar), Shoki Tanabe (bass) 
and Ryan Northrop (drums) have headlined shows in anywhere from tiny bars to 
the main stages of Portland’s biggest music festivals, and had the honor of opening 
for the likes of Red Fang, Andrew W.K., Danava and even the world’s most metal 
comedian, Brian Posehn. 

Black Ink Breakdown
