Horny Black Metal 

"Success" means something entirely different to bands that play obscure, specialized, ultragenrefied music like black metal. To that end, San Francisco's Horn of Dogoth has made quite a name for itself. After releasing a six-song CD-R a couple years ago, the band (featuring members of Subarachnoid Space, Takaru, Mastery, and Crebain) takes a big leap with a 7" EP on Burlingame's Unholy Horde label. Treading the "melodic" death-metal path, Horn of Dogoth churns out broken-record, strobe-light speed riffs, and howling, ghostly vocals that sound as if they were borne from a cavernous warehouse. The band opens for Oakland's Elk with Sands and Rutah on Sunday, May 6 at the Oakland Metro. $10. OaklandMetro.org
