TUESDAY, JAN. 12

Oslo, Norway, the home of 1349, served as a conducive crucible for the infamously violent and volatile rise of black metal a quarter-century ago. But 1349 emerged several years after the all-important Norwegian storm that produced the likes of Mayhem and Burzum, Immortal and Emperor. Still, for nearly two decades, they've espoused the genre's love of theatrics and blast-beat obliteration, delivered in a series of increasingly refined records that stop well short of Cradle of Filth's pedestrian posturing but do add a certain patina of accessibility to the form's harsh tidings. To wit, 2014's Massive Cauldron of Chaos landed a few exceptional hooks. Don't expect the same from Full of Hell, a young crew of American grindcore militants as harsh as the name implies. Whereas 1349 and Full of Hell are both rather hidebound with respect to niche, New York's excellent Tombs splice together bits of math rock, black metal, death metal and post-rock to construct captivating hybrids. They're the glue of the year's first must-see metal show. With GROHG and Bobby Orr. 7:30 p.m., $15$20, 506 W. Franklin St, Chapel Hill, 919-942-5506, www.local506.com. —Grayson Haver Currin
