Of all the nu-metal uber-heavy outfits clamoring for the throne, Rochester's Cry To The Blind does it with a positive spin. How you ask? Melody. Melody amidst the doom and weight, melody amidst the minor apocalyptic leanings. I mean, how many heavy, modern bands do you know that can pull off an acoustic album without sacrificing an ounce of impact?
Cry to the Blind performs Saturday, February 15, 9 p.m., at Montage Music Hall, 50 Chestnut Street. $5. themontagemusichall.com.
