Opeth, Katatonia 

When: Sun., May 5, 8 p.m. 2013
Price: $26-30

The long-running Swedish crews Opeth and Katatonia are rightly known for making some of the metal world's more intricate music. Opeth offers fully formed prog, with long and ornate lulls bifurcating moments of forceful drama. Their tracks and performances tend to stretch toward forever—a blessing or a curse, depending on the particular piece or your personal preference. Katatonia condenses things, though, building tighter songs and themes into albums that are no less involved and arguably more riveting. Last year's Dead End Kings was strong, but their extensive back catalog is stronger still. Show up expecting to stay a while. —Grayson Currin
