Horseskull, Druglord 

When: Fri., Nov. 30, 10 p.m. 2012
Price: Free

Raleigh's Horseskull gets pedantic with its need to proclaim doom metal authenticity, from its hipster-baiting name and press materials (Hey, Horseback!) to its Electric Wizard-echoing logo and Saint Vitus cover. Good thing the jams hold up: Their "Arahary," for instance, is a long-range rumination on far-out blues, its central riff shot through passages alternately savage and cerebral. They're like the day laborers of heavy locals, more interested in continuing the trails of Sleep and Eyehategod than bushwhacking through forks of their own. Richmond trio Druglord depends upon the same down-tuned darkness, but they tend toward monolithic throb, avoiding the thrash tangents that can make Horseskull so notable. —Grayson Currin
