Metal Assault Tour withWhite Wizzard, Icarus Witch, Widow

When: Fri., Aug. 24, 9 p.m. 2012

In an alternate universe where punk and metal never clashed and conjoined, never spawned the ugly, violent offspring of thrash, death metal and so on, the prevailing currents of heavy metal might've made more room for the likes of Los Angeles' White Wizzard, Raleigh's Widow and Pittsburgh's Icarus Witch. Instead, this package tour offers a countercurrent to blinding brutality, favoring the soaring, grandiose melody that characterized metal in the first half of the 1980s. Each of these three heavy metal traditionalists offers subtle variations, but all three highlight acrobatic guitar solos and upper-register singing to invite memories of Dio, Judas Priest and Iron Maiden. —Bryan C. Reed
