Here's what's going on in town today

Good day on this partly cloudy Wednesday.

Lansing-based doom-metal band Cruthu releases its new full-length LP, “The Angle of Eternity,” today at Mac’s Bar. Headlining the show is Castle, also opening are Sauron and WitchFist. Cruthu’s new album, its first on vinyl, is a follow-up to the band’s three-song debut, “Creation Demo,” which was released in the summer of 2014, just a few months after the band’s genesis. Cruthu comprises vocalist Ryan Evans, guitarist Dan McCormick, bassist Erik Hemingsen and drummer Matt Fry. Scott Lehman also plays bass on the album. The new six-song record, recorded to tape on throwback analog equipment, was co-produced by McCormick and George Szegedy, drummer for Lansing rockers Peoples Temple. “The album is traditional doom metal with heavy movements and passages — well-structured and deliberate,” said McCormick. “We were going for a more lo-fi, circa-’70s sound. Mac’s Bar, 2700 E. Michigan Ave., Lansing. 18+, $8, 8 p.m.
