Savagist, Bitter Resolve

When: Thu., Sept. 2, 10 p.m. 2010

It comes as no surprise that Savagist hails from Georgia. With Harvey Milk's downward-gazing slog, the ascendant punk-metal of an early Baroness and Kylesa's fog-thick stoner-thrash, the Athens four-piece recalls many of that state's alt-metal luminaries. The band's mid-tempo march feels like a hustle, bristling with razor-wire guitar leads and crackling with distorted electricity. They'll find an able complement in Chapel Hill's Bitter Resolve. The local trio's psych-doom fills a room like sweet-smelling smoke, riding the immortal riff under the obvious tutelage of Black Sabbath's catalogue.—Bryan Reed
