Of the exciting young noise-rock bands coming up right now, Toronto’s Metz may be getting the lion’s share of notice but Atlanta’s Whores deserves equal hype. For one, their bona fides are certified with releases on notable heavy labels like Brutal Panda and Amphetamine Reptile, the undisputed gold standard in noise rock. We’ve seen them both live, however, and Whores is straight-up louder and more bloodthirsty. Besides maybe standing on the ledge of a high-rise, there are few things as thrillingly precarious as being in the same room with their cyclone of coil, torque and fury. Moreover, this bill is worth extra recommendation because of both its quality and its diversity. From the grisly stoner sludge of DeLand’s Junior Bruce to the classic heaviness of Orlando rockers the Ludes to the mathematic post-hardcore of Lakeland’s Pilgrimage, this will be one juicy and rounded lineup.

Whores with the Ludes, Junior Bruce, Pilgrimage | 9 p.m. Friday, Aug. 28 | Will’s Pub, 1042 N. Mills Ave. | willspub.org | $10-$12
