Concert preview: Planning For Burial unsettles with its droning sound

By
From the March 27, 2014 edition

“Comfort,” one of the more recent songs by New Jersey rockers Planning for Burial, appears to offer anything but; sluggish drums, a white-noise guitar squall and growling-from-the-great-beyond vocals come together to create a wholly unsettling landscape.

On Facebook, the band notes it has something of a dual personality, writing, “The loud version [of the band] is a droning…wall-of-sound while the quiet version is soft and pretty.” Judging by the tracks I sampled, this mellower side surfaces about as often as the March sun in Ohio. In other words: pack earplugs.

Nyodene D and Cosmic Moon open the show.
