Mastodon may now be one of modern metal’s most definitive touchstone bands, but they’re thoroughly the product of an elite underground that is the gold standard of street cred. And if there’s any a lineup that is both reminder and reaffirmation of that fact, this is it. The sleazy humor of Eagles of Death Metal is one of the most singular and delicious phenomena in contemporary hard rock. On the opposite pole of the artistic spectrum, but every bit as worthy, is the epic instrumental intelligence of Chicago’s Russian Circles, long one of the certified cornerstones of the post-metal vanguard. Together, this triad of titans in their own right is a sterling testament to the spectrum, expression and accomplishment of today’s heavy music.

with Eagles of Death Metal, Russian Circles | 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 26 | Hard Rock Live, 6050 Universal Blvd. | 407-351-7625 | | $35-$70.50
