DYSRHYTHMIA, THE BETTER TO SEE YOU WITH, THE ABODOX
(Rotture, 315 SE 3rd) Chances are good that the three members of Dysrhythmia are better musicians than you, and they’ll spend the entirety of their set drilling that notion into your skull with their energized prog-metal instrumental compositions. For some folks, that kind of showmanship is completely satisfying. Others might find it engaging for about 45 seconds and then simply grating for the remainder of the performance. Nothing wrong with falling into either camp, but for those unfamiliar with the band, you can probably figure out where you stand, based on whether you prefer hyper-musicianship or subtlety. Fans of the latter: consider yourselves warned. BC
