Metal | Abigail Williams 

Good lordy, if there is a sonic equivalent to a snakebite shot it's probably Abigail Williams. Like a potent drink, the L.A.-based metal trio pulls you in and drags you along. I'm smitten with Abigail Williams' ability to create music that is both abrasive and beautiful. This American band is similar to many Scandinavian acts that coat their classical skeletons with the muscle of distortion. Abigail Williams strips the symphonic down to its primal essence and sounds plausible either way. Even if you keep on the sunny side, you still might dig the tunes. With Erimha, Circus Grenade, The Gutted, and Arthurian Shield.

Abigail Williams performs on Wednesday, January 15, 9 p.m. at The Bug Jar, 219 Monroe Ave. $10-$13.
