BLACK TUSK, ZOROASTER, DARK CASTLE, TENSPEED WARLOCK (Satyricon, 125 NW 6th) Zoroaster's new album Matador is a massive, psyched-out wall of Southern doom with volume knobs turned to 11 and reverb cranked to the limit. Matador also has Zoroaster changing their vocal stylings a bit, taking a few steps into heavily processing their voices along the way. The graveled delivery of Will Fiore and Brent Anderson is still there, but now their vocals create a hypnotizing drone over the music, making almost any song from Matador into a body-altering experience live. As a matter of fact, eat plenty of fiber and take a satisfying movement before attending this show, because all four bands on this bill have enough rumbling low end and volume to empty your bowels into your pants.
