When: Sat., Aug. 29, 9:30 p.m. 2015
Price: $8-$10
In March, the Boone-based prog-metal quintet As Oceans released Willows, a set that displays a previously unseen level of ambition. Driven by a fantastical narrative, the six-song EP pinballs from jackhammer djent riffs to Tool-like pontification. Riffs are embellished with nimble solos and a vaguely industrial battery of drums, and the songs even venture toward Afrobeat exotica at one point. There’s plenty to appease metalcore purists here, sure, but like Raleigh’s Alesana, As Oceans seem hell-bent on expanding the genre’s scope. —Bryan C. Reed
