Devour, Arabrot, Wizard Rifle, Thieves 

When: Fri., March 25, 9 p.m. 2011
Price: $7-8

Norwegian duo Årabrot gets heavy and mean without being yet another Nordic metal act. Not to knock the black metal canon, but it's nice to see hard-hitting variety from the frigid region. Instead, Årabrot's noise-bathed guitar and stuck pig squeals suggest stylistic progenitors Melvins on a punk-metal kick. Also a full-volume duo, Portland's Wizard Rifle is a downtuned, half-time stoner-noise-doom outfit that revels in the absurd excesses of psychedelic metal. With lines like "I can't touch you at all / surrounded as I am by the monsters in your thrall," it's hard not to giggle a little. With the local hardcore of Devour and Thieves. —Corbie Hill
