Gollum, Make, Man Will Destroy Himself

When: Sat., Sept. 25, 10 p.m. 2010

Tonally, these three acts live in an expansive textural landscape, awash with distorted overtones. Two of them use these sonic properties to bludgeon, the other, as a canvas. Chapel Hill's MAKE, one of several impossible-to-Google bands that frequent the Reservoir, plays like a Neurot Records mixtape. With moody, atmospheric guitars, patient yet punishing drums and protracted compositions that develop like underexposed film, MAKE emphasizes the "metal" in "post-metal." Think Neurosis' crushing floods of melancholy with a slight stoner element. Gollum and Man Will Destroy Himself are more aggressive, playing hardcore that's been pushed down a flight of metal stairs.—Corbie Hill
