Hog, Mortals, Wizardry 

When: Sat., Nov. 6, 10 p.m. 2010

A quartet since adding guitarist Alec Ferrell, Durham's HOG earns this headlining slot not only by proximity—they're the locals aiming to draw a crowd for Brooklyn metal bros—but by virtue of their might. The Bull City foursome's metal is born of an encyclopedic understanding of the genre. They riff heavy like Electric Wizard but add the prog-laced sludge of Mastodon and the straight-ahead trajectory of High on Fire. This band simply slays. Wizardry—not unlike old-school resurrectionists Early Man—nod to Maiden and Priest with galloping riffs and soaring, melodic vocals. Mortals take a similar route but let their guitar solos veer like bottle rockets from a wide pipe. —Bryan Reed
