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
