Colossus, Demon Eye, MAKE (Back Room) 

When: Sat., Nov. 28, 9 p.m. 2015
Price: $8
COLOSSUS

CAT'S CRADLE BACK ROOM, CARRBORO

SATURDAY, NOV. 28

In its decade of existence, Colossus has never worn costumes or set off pyrotechnics. The band has never earned notoriety for prodigious appetites or wanton destruction. But musically, Colossus is gleefully ostentatious. The group's triple-guitar onslaught drives a soaring NWOBHM revival, while singer Sean Buchanan evokes Halford and Dickinson. As the band has evolved from a scrappy revival act to a polished force, Colossus has never lost the giddy thrill inherent in this stuff. Lyrics illustrate elaborate fantasy realms and glorious battles. Guitars peel off like stunt planes to push songs in new directions. In celebration of Colossus' decennial, expect cuts spanning 2006's ...And the Rift of the Pandimensional Under-Gods, 2009's Drunk on Blood and 2012's ...And the Sepulcher of the Mirror Warlocks. With an extra drummer and two more guitarists, Colossus may actually crush you. Chapel Hill's patient post-doom trio MAKE and Raleigh proto-metal reanimators Demon Eye open. 9 p.m., $8, 300 E. Main St., Carrboro, 919-967-9053, www.catscradle.com. —Bryan C. Reed
