Liturgy, Sannhet, Horse Lords

When: Sat., April 4, 9 p.m. 2015



During the last decade, no nominal heavy metal band has caused so much controversy among the genre's diehards while making new crossover converts from soft indie-rock kids as the Brooklyn quartet Liturgy. (Sorry, Deafheaven!) The hubbub stemmed less from the band's vivid mix of post-punk and black metal than the philosophical treatises of frontman Hunter Hunt-Hendrix, an Ivy League graduate applying high-minded ideas to the street-crawling form. After a brief breakup, the quartet returned this year with The Ark Work, a daunting one-hour listen that pours the gasoline of rapping, bagpipe and glockenspiel into the band's already-inflammatory mix. It's a paralyzing and exhausting LP, bound to increase the momentarily dormant vitriol. They're on tour with Sannhet, a Brooklyn trio whose combination of power, poignancy and economy is enough to make you believe that there is life left in the fields of post-rock and post-metal. Their Revisionist is one of the young year's great triumphs. Horse Lords open. 9 p.m., $12–$14, 14 W. Martin St., Raleigh, 919-833-1091, —Grayson Haver Currin

Price: $12-$14
