PALLBEARER, TOMBS, VATTNET VISKAR | LOCAL 506, CHAPEL HILL | FRIDAY, OCT. 31 At which rural Orange County crossroads did the new owners of Local 506 meet Beelzebub in order to make a deal for the arrival of this show on Halloween? This three-band get is not only one of the best touring metal packages of the year but one of the most holistically dynamic, too. From Arkansas, headliners Pallbearer render gorgeous, graceful doom that, despite its loaded volume and 10-minute track times, bends toward popular accessibility; their second album, Foundations of Burden, feels like enjoying your brush with mortality, smiling at the lip of the void. New Hampshire's Vattnet Viskar offer an economic alternative to Deafheaven, trimming some of that band's wide-sky, sentimental excess so that their still-grandiose black metal moves with maximum efficiency. Likewise, New York's Tombs are delightfully mechanical and precise, bending wires of black, death and industrial metal across a complicated math-rock skeleton; their new album, Savage Gold, requires no costumes in order to sound tough. Chapel Hill's Solar Halos open. 8 p.m., $12–$14, 506 W. Franklin St., 919-942-5506, —Grayson Haver Currin

Price: $12-$14
