Bitter Resolve, Backwoods Payback, Order of the Owl

When: Fri., March 23, 9:30 p.m. 2012

All three of tonight's acts fall on the lower, slower end of the metal spectrum. And with local trio Bitter Resolve offering muscular Sabbath-psych and Pennsylvania's Backwoods Payback recalling Danzig's dark blues, this bill is heavy on staid doom. But show up early for Order of the Owl. Led by Zoroaster's Brent Anderson, the Atlanta trio swings between Deliverance-era COC riffing and Altar of Plagues' textured black metal, landing somewhere between Skynyrd and Wrnlrd. The Order's approach is effective, if novel, and should provide a welcome curveball ahead of the straight-line pitches thrown by Backwoods Payback and Bitter Resolve. —Bryan Reed
