Thorlock, 2013 Wolves, Bitter Resolve, Machete!

When: Wed., Feb. 22 2012

THORLOCK, BITTER RESOLVE Ah, hell: it’s BYOBL (bring your own black light) night at the Milestone again. Missouri’s Thorlock and Chapel Hill’s Bitter Resolve exist along the same continuum of heavy-lidded, ’70s-referencing riff-metal. Thorlock’s swinging rural sludge verges on boogie at times while noisy guitars growl and wallow in their own feedback. Bitter Resolve crunches along like a tank in low gear, its protometal riffing driven by powerful, asymmetrical drum lines. Yet don’t let the shared aesthetic fool you: Both bands chart distinct courses through the stoner metal landscape. (Corbie Hill)
