Ash Borer @ the Acheron
Ash Borer

Ash Borer headlined its second of two NYC dates on Saturday (7/16). One night after hitting Tommy's Tavern, they played Acheron with touring partners Ruin Lust, as well as dark ambient band ITHI and locals Anchorites. Last night in Providence at AS220 marked the conclusion of dates for Ash Borer / Ruin Lust, who each were touring with releases in tow (Ash Borer with a new LP/cassette discog, Ruin Lust with a new demo).

Epic and atmospheric, Ash Borer played a fantastic set with fill-in bassist Mike from Ruin Lust/Fell Voices, as evidenced in the video below (their entire set, courtesy of UNARTIG).

Support was similarly fantastic, with Ruin Lust ripping a set of atonal blackened death metal anchored by jawdropping drums by Mike, ITHI laying down dark textures, and Anchorites bringing the blackened crust. Ruin Lust has grown considerably since my first experience with them; this Brooklyn band is now a force to be watched.

How are Ruin Lust from NYC if they have members of Fell Voices (from Cali)? Unless there was some relocating involved.

There was relocating involved.
