Crowbar, Black Tusk

When: Tue., Nov. 30, 8 p.m. 2010

If you're already done with the threat of winter, this double bill—a convocation of two swampy, sludgy beasts from the South—should shake away the gray blues. Black Tusk's Taste the Sin is a crossover blast from Savannah, built as much on punk rock's roil as heavy metal's maw. With sharp riffs sculpted by distortion and powered by a relentless rhythm section, Black Tusk makes the most of its throbbing mid-tempo comfort zone. Crowbar's been doing this stuff since the late '80s, scowling the blues through smoke-and-liquor-lacerated vocals and over a metal march that lunges between poles of speed and stomp. With Broadslab and Chapel Hill's excellent MAKE. —Grayson Currin
