Black Cobra, Howl, Struck by Lightning, Hog

When: Tue., Aug. 3, 8 p.m. 2010

On a 2007 tour supporting Pelican, Black Cobra laid waste to at least one underfilled venue. They were, at least to a 21-year-old, unknown and captivating. Amid his full-body flailing, Jason Landrian's guitar claims the space of three, while drummer Rafael Martinez's drumsticks land like grenades. Today, they've ascended to the Southern Lord ranks, filling last year's monolithic, if monochromatic, Chronomega with bitter sludge riffs. They have found a musical comfort zone from which they rarely depart. Tourmates Howl deliver monster-size riffs on their Sleep-induced Full of Hell, while Struck By Lighting picks up the pace on its bottom-heavy punk-metal. Local warriors Hog claim the support slot, anchoring this package of underground metal bona fides.—Bryan Reed
