Music Around Town

Clutch/Crobot/Valkyrie

When: Wed., Dec. 30, 7:30 p.m. 2015

Whiile Clutch’s music could be called heavy metal/hard rock, the group also draws from the blues and from progressive rock. The band’s latest album, Psychic Warfare, simply can’t be pigeonholed. A terrific collection of tunes that show a breadth of musical influences, it might be the band’s best effort yet and it serves as a testament to the band’s staying power. Released earlier this year, the album has really resonated with fans. It debuted at No. 11 in Billboard Top 200 as well as at No. 1 on both the Rock and Hard Rock Charts. With its woozy vocals and bluesy guitar licks, one of the album highlights, “A Quick Death in Texas,” sounds like heavy rendition of a ZZ Top track. The twangy “Doom Saloon” provides a great segue into the album’s second half, which comes off as a bit more subdued than the first half. The band’s concerts have always drawn well as the old fans keep coming back, and new fans continue to come as well. (Niesel)
