Listen to one of Transient's viciously blistering metal tracks and you will wonder what sort of creature is singing into the mic. These throat-shredding howls and screeches could emit from man or woman, a human or otherworldly entity. A little research will show you that it is in fact Krysta Martinez, a petite powerhouse who hails from Flagstaff, Arizona. The band as a whole channels discontent and despair into lyrical pleas full of naturalistic imagery (like "savage talons" and "parasites") alongside grinding, tightly wound metal that rattles the bones. With multiple releases and several West Coast tours since forming in 2007, Transient has, contrary to their name, formed quite a home base in our fair city. If you want to still hear at the end of the night, bring earplugs. MARANDA BISH
