Indian sure know how to scare off the weak ones: The opening track of their new record, From All Purity, is a howling hell hole of a song, recalling Made Out of Babies at their most cathartic. Plus, it’s called “Rape.” If you’ve got the will to stick around beyond that harsh initiation, you get to this more “accessible” song. “Directional” will make you glad you stayed, though – this is epic doom from this Chicago band that is crushingly heavy, slow as molasses, and blisteringly alive.
