Kraken Fest III with Zoroaster, Crusades, Savagist, Cleanteeth, Colossus

When: Sat., May 11, 5 p.m. 2013

The Kraken is a small bar on Highway 54, as it cuts between Carrboro and Pittsboro. Their musical roster embraces the blues and punk rock, R&B and—appropriate, given the name—heavy metal. For the third time, Kraken Fest assembles several thunderous hordes at the outskirts outpost, with Atlanta's charging doom-and-blues outfit Zoroaster leading the fray. Best among the five-band bunch might be Savagist, another Georgia act that suggests the hulking body of the Melvins with the accelerator tied to the floor. They are noisy and nasty, splintering the force of Thor's hammer into a dozen deep needle pricks. NWOBHM lieges Colossus, irascible rumblers Clean Teeth and magnetic Wilmington crew Crusades share the bill. —Grayson Currin
