Jonah Hex EP (Warner Bros.)

Polarizing hysteria caused by 2009's Crack the Skye recoils a 33-minute download of six movie-score instrumentals from this past spring's straight-to-infinity DC Comics Western Jonah Hex. Nine minutes of hardening cement on "Death March" become a demo by Atlanta's indie metal behemoth given its alternate take, a third-act holocaust probably more extreme than the film. Ditto for "Clayton Boys," an acoustic-lined buzzer whose outtake burns sodium chloride. "Indian Theme" unleashes a seafaring Leviathan; "Train Assault" does. (Sunday, 8:45pm, Black stage)
