Motrendus

When: Wed., Jan. 2, 8 p.m. 2013

In its succinct band biography, Motrendus explains that it started as a classic rock cover outfit before attempting its own originals, noting canonical influences like Blue yster Cult, Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath. That background matches this hard-rocking Raleigh quartet precisely: Its riffs find a middle ground between Sabbath's psychedelic heft and Zeppelin's bluesy verve, while its bass lines lock into the kind of grooves that powered The Cult. These are original songs, but they include few original ideas. Confident if not ambitious, Motrendus competently navigates familiar rock 'n' roll paths. —Jordan Lawrence
