Calendar Pick: Black Tusk

Black Tusk

Savannah’s Black Tusk has been delivering what it calls “thick and murky stoner sludge,” or more simply, “swamp metal” since its debut record, 2005’s When Kingdoms Fall. The band nods toward Motörhead and Mastodon as its influences, with a sound that is loud, proud and intense. Black Tusk was originally formed by Andrew Fidler, Jonathan Athon and James May, but recent personnel changes have seen the addition of bassist Derek Lynch, who a reviewer for Angry Metal Guy compliments for the “totality of barks, shrieks, and growls” that he contributes to the new, more melodically and rhythmically complex sound found in the band’s most recent record, The Way Forward. The show will be opened with scattered, smothered and blackened thrash from Beast Mode and emotional hardcore from In Memories.
