ATL Concert Roundup — September 8-14

Irreversible

THIS WEEK’S BEST BET:

IRREVERSIBLE (Record Release Show)
w/ Bodyfather, Degradations, Romanian Air Space
Saturday, September 13
529 – 529 Flat Shoals Avenue in Atlanta 30316
Admission $5

It feels ass backwards to pick against any lineup that contains such established greats as Pinback and Tera Melos, or one that has Black Cobra and local prog-metal maniacs Lazer/Wulf, or, for that matter, to choose against a show that features both one of the city’s most electrifying live acts in Warehouse, as well as one of its most gifted underground hip-hop artists in Yamin Semali. But that’s what is demanded when the can’t-miss show in question is the record release celebration for IRREVERSIBLE, whose latest effort, the stunning SURFACE, is one of the most ambitious forays into ambient and exploratory metal in recent memory. The record is only three tracks deep, but each of those cuts stretches well over ten minutes and becomes progressively more complex and mind-blowing as it unravels. The band will play the album in its entirety this Saturday night at 529 and if you have any love for mammoth riffs, immersive atmospherics and majestic swirls of psychedelic sludge, you definitely won’t want to miss it.
