Colossus, Thunderlip, Demon Eye 

When: Fri., Aug. 31, 9 p.m. 2012
Price: $5

Since its inception seven years ago, Colossus has maintained a self-aware sense of humor, gleefully celebrating heavy metal excess and speculative-fiction fandom. This gig celebrates the release of the band's fine third effort, And the Sepulcher of the Mirror Warlocks. That same sense of fun-loving trad-metal revivalism persists through this triple bill: Wilmington's Thunderlip reimagines Judas Priest as a cousin to Lynyrd Skynrd, while Raleigh's Demon Eye aims for the darker edges of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal. From their headlining position, Colossus mounts this bill's summit with momentum drawn from a thunderous, galloping low end, soaring three-part harmonic guitar leads and operatic vocals. —Bryan C. Reed
