North, Set & Setting, Etiolated 

When: Mon., Aug. 24, 9 p.m. 2015
Price: $5
The Tucson metal trio North employ two preferred modes of operation: Their favored approach is to be surly and swollen, making sludgy metal that is relentless with heavy riffs, rhythms and roars and militaristic in its precision with them. Sometimes, though, they cut the tether and drift toward noisy oblivion, until all that aggression sublimates into distant instrumental reflection. Those passages mostly serve to embolden the louder stuff—that is, a top-notch, post-Neurosis mix of tension and aggression that’s earned them a deal with Prosthetic Records. Labelmates set and setting forgo the words and favor post-rock dynamics and expanses, where slow movement often results in stunning arrivals. —Grayson Haver Currin
