Widow, 7 Kingdoms, Creation's End, Artizan 

When: Thu., Aug. 18 2011
Price: $10

There's a sense of urgency lacking in most contemporary power metal bands, as if unspooling a series of solos and yawning through some faux-castrati anthem about goblins and shit is all it takes to impress. That's not true of Widow, a Raleigh trio that rises above the trappings of the cheese-metal snore factory simply by playing faster and harder than most. Adding thrashy growls behind John Wooten's Halfordian melodies helps push the band out of tribute-band purgatory. It's still power metal, but there's a reason Widow is at the top of the bill. This package tour, "Uniting the Powers of Metal," also boasts the like-minded Creation's End, Seven Kingdoms and Artizan. Time TBA. &mdashBryan C. Reed
