When: Fri., Dec. 23, 8:30 p.m. 2016

It’s been more than three years since this Chicago sextet released their debut, Vessel, so their second full-length, the self-released Drugs and Animals, was one of Chicago metal’s most highly anticipated of the fall: please, metal gods, give us something good to help stomp this terrible year into a gruesome pulp. Power trios and quartets are great, but there’s something to be said for a doom-death-stoner band with a keyboardist, three guitarists, and a tight rhythm section. Onstage Cokegoat can get as lush and layered as they do on record, which is a big help to a slow-burn, climax-building track like “Winter of Fear” or a heavy-footed epic like “Nurture,” on which harmony vocals—particularly keyboardist Rebekah Brown’s ethereal keen—inject sweet tonal color. The big cast adds even more density to bang-the-head slow screamers “Where the Sun Dies” and “The Ruiners.”
