Enslaved: Show Preview

As a landmark in black metal's blasted wasteland, Enslaved stands out for its willingness to brave such non-kvlt musical outings as prog, clean singing, and castanets. The band's Winter Rite tour churns into town with no less than funeral-doom darlings Pallbearer, fresh from being crowned one of Pitchfork's best new musical acts, and Royal Thunder, whose sound melds Joan Jett, Janis Joplin, and '70s-era occult-rock. Satanic acoustic-metal band Ancient VVisdom — yes, you read that right — will warm things up. It's gonna be epic.
