Kat (ex-Salome) joins Batillus on stage
Batillus

With the upstairs packed to the gills (and a few of hardcore stragglers making their way downstairs), The Studio at Webster Hall had a party of their own on 3/26 with the convergence of the homecoming show of the Hull/Batillus tour (which previously hit SXSW) and the NYC debut of Horseback with NC breathren Caltrop. As usual, Hull & Batillus's pyrotechnics were impressive, with Batillus getting the extra-nod for inviting the awesome and now band-less Kat (ex-Salome) to guest on stage (awesome stuff). If you haven't seen either band, you are missing out on some of the finest metal bands that NYC has to offer.

Horseback was a revelation though... though their set only consisted of only three tracks - "Invokation", "The Invisible Mountain", and a cover of The Stooges' "TV Eye"- the songs traddled the lines between western, post-rock, stoner, and black metal. Caltrop, who shares members with Horseback, brought a technical, yet southern swing with touches of big riffs. Caltrop opened the show, but probably should be playing to much bigger crowds; these dudes smoke.

More pictures and video from the show, below...

I can picture Hummus O's becoming a delicious and nutritious chickpea-based breakfast cereal marketed to the indie rock demographic in the near future.

Yo
I'm a hot and bothered astronaut, crashing while jacking off
to buffering vids of Asher Roth eating apple sauce
Sent to earth to poke Catholics in the ass with saws
and knock blunt ashes into their caskets and laugh it off
Twist is sicker than mad cattle, in fact I'm off
six different liquors with a prince wig plastered on
Stop screaming bitch, you shouldn't be that alarmed
that big lips was in the attic ???s with an addicts arm
Earl puts the ass in assassin
and puts the pieces of decomposing bodies in plastic
puts em in a pan and mixes it up with scat
then gobbles it up like fat black bitches and catfish
It so happens that I'm so haphazardous,
I'd puke a piece and put it on (???)
I'm askin that you faggot rap actors take action
and get a hall pass for this class act shit
How the fuck I fit an ax in a satchel?
Slip capsules in her glass, she dizzy rascal
Party staff baffled, asking where her ass go
In my room redefining the meaning of black hos
and go on, suck it up, but hurry i've got nuts to bust
and ?????
and sluts to fucking uppercut
Its OF, buttercup, go ahead, fuck with us
Without a doubt a surefire way to get your mother fucked
Ask her for a couple bucks, shove a trumpet up her butt
Play a song, invade her thong my dick is having guts for lunch
as well as supper, then i'll rummage through a ruptured cunt
found them ? fuckin nosy neighbors know that somethings up
Whatcha doing? Nothing much
Would shout some other stuff - gotta fucking bounce, guess the bouncers had enough of us
