Once upon a time, like a few weeks ago, the members of three popular and crazy-loud Detroit bands — we’re talking volume that could alter the path of low-orbit satellites — concluded that their main gigs were not affording them the opportunity to play with an acceptable degree of heaviness. Imagine a world where We Came as Romans, Taproot and Assassins aren’t heavy enough, then imagine the kind of heaviness it would require to outweigh those three. OK, don’t break a gear tooth in your brainbox with all that imagining — the actual result is contained in the first six-song EP from the freshly formed Crucible, and it is all the heavy you can imagine and so much more. Read more about the group in this week's Sound Advice.


See Crucible with Toothgrinder, Ghost Key, 7 Years Dead, Homebound and Motions of Sin Tuesday at Thompson House. More info/tickets: thompsonhousenewport.com .
