Black Titan continues to gather fans in the Azalea City and beyond with a thick, raunchy metal sound that harkens to the early days of Black Sabbath. In October, Black Titan brought their metal thunder to a battle of the bands at an Applebee’s in Hattiesburg. While this environment might not seem to complement their sound, these darlings of the Mobile underground beat the competition and took home first place. Afterward, Black Titan took their show westward for a lineup of dates that included several in Austin, Texas.
Hattiesburg’s Face on Mars will also be performing. Face on Mars has created an electrifying batch of modern stoner metal, which is showcased on their self-titled debut. This release is highlighted by intense tracks like “We Get Loud” and slow, grinding anthems like “Psychedelic Jesus.”
Houston’s Slow Motion Rider will complete the triple-shot. While the rest of the lineup concentrates on classic metal, this group has taken the psychedelic sounds of the late ‘60s/early ‘70s and brought them into the modern age with an undeniable intensity. Slow Motion Rider will add contrast to this show, but their charismatic music should mingle perfectly.
