Sister Faith (Temporary Residence)

Doomy trappings disappear out of this Kentucky trio's barn for fourth LP Sister Faith. Metallic hardcore still gallops in short, sharp, steely blasts on a pair of two-minute openers, but Nineties grunge-dripping Seaweed now coats Ryan Patterson's punk heroes. More extreme exhales the five-minute push/pull of "Love Under Will," with its Joy Division bassline and siren riff relieving the pummel that segues into the BÖC-like best chorus of "Under the Blood of the Moon" and taut, insistent "Used Blood," a pulse-quickener gnashing akin to the Foo Fighters' redline debut. Freight yard guitars, "Black Magic Punks," and room to breathe – Coliseum expands. (Sat., 12:45am, Mohawk)
