Mounds of Ash
Castevet

If you're anything like me, you've probably been bumping the latest Altar of Plagues EP, Tides, for a few weeks now (order a copy). The EP is the follow-up to the band's incredible 2009 LP (one of my faves of the year) White Tomb and while I've thoroughly enjoyed all of their work thus far, I've yet to catch the Irish black metal combo live. That will change this summer!

BrooklynVegan and Haunting The Chapel are proud to present the NYC debut of Altar of Plagues with Velnias, Castevet, and Man's Gin on August 1st at The Studio @ Webster Hall! Tickets are on sale for the show, which is part of a larger tour for AoP and Velnias.

Altar of Plagues recently, and triumphantly, played Roadburn 2010 (twice!) alongside an amazing cast of characters despite the volcanic ash situation. Streaming sets from the band's appearance aren't currently available, but sets by Brant Bjork, Earthless, Firebird, Horisont, Nachtmystium, Pagan Altar, Shever, Trinacria and Yob are! Scoot on over to check them out.

Castevet will share multiple dates with the AoP/Velnias tour, and the band recently welcomed their new LP Mounds of Ash on Profound Lore Records. Check out the NEW track from the LP "Red Aura" available for download above. The band will celebrate that release with an absolutely unmissable lineup that will play alongside the NYC band at Lit Lounge on Monday 6/7: Woe, Batillus, and Flourishing!

While Man's Gin is the brainchild of multi-instrumentalist Erik Wunder of Cobalt, don't mistake his new project for a war metal assault. Man's Gin is more akin to a mix of Tom Waits, Alice In Chains, or Angels of Light, but is nonetheless a fascinating listen. A teaser for the band's upcoming LP is available above, look for it later this year on Profound Lore Records, and get to The Studio early!

Can't wait for that AoP show. Will try to check out the Castevet show on Monday; saw them with Ludicra and they were awesome/got their CD and it kicks ass as well. Either way, the Studio lineup is SICK.

'White Tomb' is unreal, amazing band, very curious to hear them live!

Tides is FANTASTIC, I recommend it to everyone.

Siamese Dream and Mellon Collie were really good albums. Got them when they came out, still throw them on at times and think they're great. It saddens me when I hear bands from that era when I was a teenager and hear their new stuff and it's so clear how they've lost it, they sound desperate to recapture a sound/magic that they haven't had in 15 years (holy shit).... And then I realize that is not unlike a lot of us.

you dave haters can go fuck yourselves. bonnaroo 2010 was 4 of the best days of my life. the DMB and JayZ headliners at the main stage were two of the best shows I've ever seen, musically and production speaking. 2011 'roo is going to be amazing. Phish headlining?

they also played at a place called Tramps in april '99 losers. with qotsa. where were you? you guys sound pretty angry? go listen to something hip. whatever the fuck you think that is. why does james iha need to be in the band for them to be good? that makes no sense. so the band changed lineups. oh well.
