• Anatomy of Habit

At the beginning of the year, Gossip Wolf reported that monstrous local five-piece Anatomy of Habit had retooled their lineup, and now, five months later, we get to see the refurbished band live, opening for French post-rockers Ulan Bator at Cobra Lounge on Friday night. Anatomy of Habit, a band known for intense, terrifying post-metal dirges and heady experimental rock, have bid farewell to guitarist Greg Ratajczak, metal percussionist Blake Edwards, and drummer Noah Leger (who had replaced original drummer Dylan Posa), and have added even more star power to the lineup.

Guitar duties are now being handled by Indian and former Wolves in the Throne Room member Will Lindsay, a local heavy-metal guru. John McEntire, Tortoise member and owner of Soma Electronic Music Studios, will be handling the drum kit. And the newest addition to the lineup is Joan of Arc drummer Theo Katsaounis, who will be taking over on secondary percussion.
