Black Tusk's new songs offer good reason to rage this Thursday at Will's Pub

Since forming in 2005, Savannah sludge metal band Black Tusk has combined thick, infuriated vocals with sick, torrential riffs, garnering comparisons to nearly anyone considered heavy music elite. It’s an essential act to catch any time they come to town, but this would be an especially good time to rally around these rippers. Last year was a notably intense year for the band, having lost crucial bassist Jonathan Athon to a motorcycle crash and making the painful decision to follow through on plans for their European tour. Now they’re back stateside and while time has passed, the loss is undoubtedly still felt, so it’d be awfully proper to head to the pub and embrace our Northern brothers, while their fresh material offers an extra solid reason to rage along with their crushing songs.

Black Tusk with Meatwound, Bhavachakra 8 p.m. Thursday, July 2 | Will’s Pub, 1042, N. Mills Ave. | | $10-$12
