Roaring into town in support of their latest album, the year-old Psychic Warfare, Clutch packed Clifton Park’s Upstate Concert Hall to the max with a sold-out Halloween weekend show that was no tricks, all treats.

The alt-metal band has been crushing it for more than 25 years now, and they’ve been making regular visits to Greater Nippertown for quite some time. It may be difficult to pin down a definition of their sound, but there’s no denying the power of their live performance.

Making this show extra special was the fact that guitarslinger Zakk Wylde was sharing the bill in his Zakk Sabbath mode. Of course, Wylde was Ozzy Osbourne’s fretboard fave from 1988-1995, so he’s certainly more entitled than most to tackle on the Black Sabbath songbook. And in typical Sabbath fashion, he was taking no prisoners in Clifton Park with face-melting nuggets like “Snowblind” and “War Pigs.”
