Heavy metal madness at the Exchange tonight with a triple bill headlined by the Vancouver quartet Anciients. They released their debut album Heart of Oak in 2011, and their sophomore release Seasons of Mist was longlisted for the 2013 Polaris Prize.

Joining Anciients on the bill are the San Francisco sludge metal duo Black Cobra (Jason Landrian and Rafael Martinez) and the youngish Vancouver acid metal band Black Wizard which has been around since 2010.

As noted, the show goes at the Exchange. Doors are at 8 p.m., and to get you pumped here’s a video from 2012 for Black Cobra’s song “The Crimson Blade”:
