A tour schedule from Nefarious Industries band, arbogast, arrived along with this live video of the band's performance at the Ultra Lounge in Chicago. The math and metal behind this band is on full display with this rendition of the song "blasfamous" from their 2012 debut, I.
For those in the Philadelphia area, arbogast will be at the Kung Fu Necktie in early April with Carved Up, who are also a really good live act.

arbogast’s off-kilter but seamless hybrid of extreme musical styles infiltrated the media at the turn of the year by way of a crushing debut album, simply entitled I. The trio’s slamming hooks and percussion are also fueled by sturdy societal and political disdain. Their unique sound is a hybrid of thrash, hardcore, sludge and even old-school punk merge into an aggressively progressive haze that never veers too far into the pretentious. I tackles a theme on the minds of many: the declining morals of a country where the middle class is being overthrown by the greed of the privileged. Recorded by Andy Nelson (Weekend Nachos) at Bricktop Studios in Pilsen and mastered by Matt DeWine at Ukrainian Village’s Pieholden Suite Sound, founded by the late Jay Bennett (Wilco), I was released in December via New Jersey-based Nefarious Industries.
