Not much respect from frills-eschewing headbangers, but the artier end of the metal spectrum yields provocative sounds, as this bill demonstrates. Holding aloft its latest LP Memorial, Chicago’s Russian Circles sweep the sky with storms of sound, letting guitars and drums thunder in place of words. Winnipeg’s KEN Mode fracture spines and puts them back together with the smartass noise rock/metalcore mash-up of Entrench. Virginians Inter Arma scorch the earth first with Sky Burial’s molten stew of blackened acid doom.
