Sunsplitter, Bridesmaid, Squall, Hog

When: Wed., June 22, 9 p.m. 2011

It's hard to say it any other way. Sun Splitter sounds rusty. Not unpracticed, but oxidized: This doom-meets-black metal is patient, abrasive and evilly lo-fi. Much like kindred spirits and Chicago scene-mates Locrian, this noisy band looks to frighten you. Bridesmaid is the sound of blown speakers. These Ohio sludge punishers feature two bong-rattling bassists, a drummer and no treble instruments. It's a thunderous, down-tempo mess, and that's OK. Durham locals Hog, whose Archetypes EP is a recent masterpiece of Southern art metal, and Raleigh's Squall round out the bill. We know it's a Tuesday night, but do it. —Corbie Hill
