When: Sat., Jan. 8, 5:30 p.m. 2011
Price: $8-10

It's something of a tradition in loud rock music to stack bills so deep the show has to start before suppertime. And, judging by its lineup, Raleigh's Winter Metalfest is all about tradition. Headliners Widow set the tone for the event, with a harmony-heavy brand of retro-metal built on a foundation of Judas Priest and Def Leppard. The band before them, Here Lies, nod to Sweden in the '90s with flurries of melodic guitar backing growled vocals and aggressive, insistent rhythms, in the lineage of At The Gates and In Flames. The remaining six bands fit somewhere between the two, whether in full-on power metal mode, like Chapel Hill's Colossus, or vintage thrash, like Raleigh's Outliar. —Bryan Reed
