EXPERIMENTAL/METAL: The Overseer

Besides being the birthplace of the world's greatest (or most evil, depending on your political perspective and shopping agenda) megastore, the city of Bentonville, Arkansas, has also produced the gut-wrenching, fist-pumping Christian hard-rock quartet, The Overseer. But believe me when I say that I don't think these guys would be caught dead at a Creed concert. Instead, these Arkansans have chosen to wax worshipful with wailing, intricate guitar work and seriously weighty vocals. The band's latest full-length album, "We Search, We Dig," is a collection of songs driven by aggressive rhythms, impressive musicianship, and a meaningful mix of hardcore and melodic rock.

The Overseer performs Tuesday, October 9 Bug Jar, 219 Monroe Ave. 9 p.m. | $8-$10 | 454-2966, bugjar.com
