Psalm Zero pools the considerable resources of local avant-rock luminaries Charlie Looker (formerly of Extra Life and Zs) and Andrew Hock (of Castevet), yielding a bludgeoning yet beautifully textured update on Godflesh-style industrial metal. Here the band plays in support of its excellent recent debut, The Drain. Also on board is fellow local crew Pyrrhon—which spews forth demented death metal that falls somewhere between the anguished precision of Gorguts and the voices-in-your-head onslaught of vintage Today Is the Day on its impressive latest, The Mother of Virtues—and Stern, a compellingly proggish art-pop band headed by former Time of Orchids frontman Chuck Stern.
