Vattnet Viskar, Hansgraf 

When: Thu., March 7, 9 p.m. 2013
Price: $5

New Hampshire four-piece Vattnet Viskar is headed to Texas, where their bleak and bellicose black metal should be one of the most buzzed-about heavy offerings at this year's South by Southwest. After all, following the released of their debut EP last year, they earned rave reviews and signed to metal titan Century Media. So, why all the attention? Vattnet Viskar takes the grandiosity that's become a hallmark of stateside black metal and reduces it with hardcore efficiency. That is, they cover the same majestic expanses as Wolves in the Throne Room but with a compositional economy that acknowledges that you have someplace else to be, and that they have somewhere else to take you. With Hansgraf.—Grayson Currin
