HARD ROCK | Babayaga 

Some heavy or "stoner" bands have trouble getting out of second gear, getting caught up in their own sludge and drop-tuned quicksand. One glowing exception is Rochester's Babayaga. With its new disc, "Been A long Time Comin'," Babayaga pounces as much as it pounds and pummels. The quartet adheres to the Black Sabbath approach: find a riff, dial it in, and ride it to hell. It's monstrous and heavy but still has rock 'n' roll wings. Achtung!

Babayaga plays Saturday, July 13, 9 p.m. at Monty's Krown, 875 Monroe Ave. $3. 271-7050.
