Vocalist Jex Thoth, and the band that shares her name, combine the searing heft of doom metal with psychedelic flourishes and grandiose melodies. The band's most recent album, Blood Moon Rise, thrives on versatility, from the lumbering acid-rock of "The Places You Walk" to the baleful balladry of "Keep Your Weeds." The band regularly tours the world and plays metal festivals in the U.S., but has only played a couple of Madison shows in the time Thoth has been living here. She's a charismatic and powerful singer, and the band should be in great shape here, as they'll be fresh off a tour of Europe and Russia. Definitely show up for the two Madison-based openers, wonderfully gloomy goth-rockers Vanishing Kids and black-metal duo Tubal Cain. —Scott Gordon
