Black Anvil, in mid thrash.
Black Anvil

The bunny was shown no mercy on Easter Sunday, as Genghis Tron, Tombs, Wetnurse, and Black Anvil took care of business at Public Assembly (4/12). The Brooklyn venue was packed for the show that "might be" the last NYC show for da 'Tron in 2009 - the band is setting aside some time post-Coachella to work on new material.

Tombs, who are back from a long trek with Pelican and Wolves in The Throne Room, have only a couple shows lined up until the band hits the road with Isis (and Pelican on some dates). Tickets for Isis/Pelican/Tombs on June 2nd at Irving Plaza are on sale.

Wetnurse have a couple area dates in the next couple weeks: April 16th in Bloomfield, NJ with Landmine Marathon (who fuckign DESTROYED last night, more on that later) and April 26th at Union Pool with The Austerity Program & Tournament. After that, the band will play a second Show No Mercy event at Public Assembly on May 3rd with A Life Once Lost, Buried Inside, and Rosetta. A month and a half after that, the band hits the road with Lord Mantis (who we profiled here) for a US tour.

By my strictly unscientific polling, Black Anvil might have recieved the most "oohs and ahhs" of the night. If you missed them, then you have two more chances to catch the band in NYC in the coming months: May 20th at Chief Bodega with Vermefug, Entrails Massacre, and PLF and July 11th at Rock Star Bar with Dimentianon. The band has one additional show lined up for Richmond, on May 9th, where they will team up with Occultist and Bastard Sapling.

Wish I could have been there. Love Tombs, but I also hate when people act like wanks and wear Burzum shirts.

To the attractive woman rocking out to Ghengis Tron in forth picture down:

Will you please marry me?

-Some guy that needs a wife that rocks.

Ghengis have def. gotten better over the last couple years, very good stuff.

but TOMBS?? They suck!! they are totally overrated and I can't believe people still sit through this droney nonsense.

Real crap band!

glad I didn't go. fuck Burzum and anyone supporting this crap in one way or another.

the guitar player from Genghis Tron is wearing the Burzum shirt? MMaybe someone should have asked him why he was wearing that shirt. I would think he wore it as a joke. I dont support anyone supporting Burzum.

don't you think that a joke like that - if it is one - is bound to go over like a fart in church?
what's next? sportin' 3rd reich swastika shirt. dunno, I might be hypersensitive but still...

was it just me, or did the sound at public assembly seem really off most of the night? particularly during wetnurse (who are awesome).

does that place always sound that bad?

the burzum shirt was kinda funny with Jewish band members on easter sunday. just sayin'

The P.A. wasn't off, Tombs probably just made you think it was blown out and flat.

Unlistenable!!

I understand that this site is patronized mostly by self-righteous, indignant douches, but please calm down about the Burzum shirt. The first few Burzum records are quite good despite the fact that the person who made them is somewhere between despicable and insane. Most metalheads do not find it as difficult as you guys do to separate art and artist. A good riff is a good riff, and I can all but guarantee that is why dude is wearing a Burzum shirt.

burzum rules. lots of great music was penned by morally reprehensible people, you can still appreciate the art for what it is. bunch of uptight wankers.
