Sons of Tonatiuh, Old Codger, Royal Nites

When: Fri., May 24, 9 p.m. 2013

Atlanta trio Sons of Tonatiuh specialize in belligerence. Sure, their promising 2012 debut, Parade of Sorrow, also merited more quantifiable tags, such as its joinder of galloping thrash and arching doom, bruising hardcore and crackling guitar solos. But the chain that binds those Tonatiuh qualities together is general misanthropy, or the unshakable feeling that these three dudes have never met an expression of unrest that was aggressive enough to sate the rage. As with fellow Georgians Black Tusk (see No. 6) and Kylesa, their impressive crossover fare succeeds because it links uncommon elements with a common goal—to delight with despair and, of course, riffs that shuttle momentum masterfully. With Old Codger and Royal Nites. —Grayson Currin
