Ocoai, Generation Of Vipers 

When: Sat., Jan. 14, 10 p.m. 2012
Price: Free

Figuring out who plays in which Appalachian metal band is like untangling the roots of an incestuous family tree. The best bands in Asheville, Knoxville and Johnson City seem to share members and, it appears, a common appreciation for the experimental spectrum of Neurosis. Johnson City's OCOAI has been pretty accurately described as "Pink Floyd killing a dinosaur." Knoxville's Generation of Vipers, which shares a member with OCOAI and two members with U.S. Christmas, buries ambient sounds under a thick layer of sludge. Seriously, bring your earplugs. —Karen A.
