The Atlas Moth, the massively heavy, always-on-tour local experimental-metal quintet celebrate their homecoming tonight—having just returned home from a huge trip out with Between the Buried and Me—with a headlining show at Cobra Lounge (Northless and Rollo Tomasi open). Formed in 2007, the band has perfected their spacey sludge metal over the years, and today's 12 O'Clock Track, "The Sea Beyond," off of last year's The Old Believer (Profound Lore), showcases the band's tremendous growth. Starting off as a simple, superheavy, sludge unit, they've evolved into heady, expansive postmetal wizards who take the earth-leveling guitar tones of Neurosis and embellish it with digitalized synths, a triple-guitar assault, and black-metal backing vocal shrieks, then arrange it all into huge, shifting movements. The band is always an overwhelming force to experience live, so tonight's show is not one to miss. Check out "The Sea Beyond" below.
