Two of Seattle’s hardest rocking bands celebrated the release of new material Friday at Neumos with a throbbing wall of sound that’s likely still got some ears ringing.

Hobosexual and Fox and the Law both have new albums out. “Hobosexual II” fits the duo’s M.O. perfectly. It’s a concept album set in the year 2071 that tells the story of a BMX biker gang (the Sex Destroyers) but all that is just an excuse for a furious barrage of guitarist and singer Ben Harwood’s slick, overpowering riffs and Jeff Silva’s thundering drums.

On Friday, Hobosexual used the heavy, slow-rolling blues-metal of “The Creep” to get things started. A standout track from “Hobosexual II,” it had just the right kind of menace to set the tone for the band’s set.
