Thursday, June 6 – Inter Arma

with Bog Prophet, Set & Setting, Hollow Leg

9 p.m.

Will's Pub

1042 N. Mills Ave.


The latest, megastacked masterstroke of local heavy-music syndicate Orlandooom is a five-star roster headlined by rocketing Virginia band Inter Arma, whose palette goes light-years beyond typical headbanging. It’s a dense, voracious brew of doom and sludge made vast by psychedelic and post-metal horizons. Sky Burial, their new album on Relapse Records, is heavy to the extreme but sweepingly expansive, ranging from the epic, forlorn Americana of Red Sparowes and Across Tundras to full-on black hail. They’re a metal band brainy enough even to be featured by NPR (um, victory?). The other notable out-of-state import is Order of the Owl, a dope-thick Southern doom-sludge band fronted by Brent Anderson (founding member of Atlanta progressive sludge monsters Zoroaster). Rounding out the bill is a native Floridian demolition crew comprised of the savage Bog Prophet, the colossal Set & Setting and the bloodthirsty Hollow Leg. Beasts, all of them. – Bao Le-Huu
