The Philadelphia black-metal crew will also support Mayhem on their upcoming tour. An unpublished set of pictures from their surprise appearance at Acheron in May with Bastard Sapling and Inter Arma is in this post.

Disma is playing the 9/17 at Cake Shop with Drawn & Quartered who play a pair of shows in NYC next weekend. Mausoleum, Death Sick, and Mutant Supremacy are scheduled to play both, the second being at Saint Vitus on 9/16.

Have a great weekend, and head out to the shows! More belated Woe pictures, the album streams, the Urfaust after-party details, some classic video and more suggested NYC shows for the coming weeks below.... What did I miss?

Woe at Acheron:














Wizardry regrets to inform you of the departure of guitarist Matt Klickstein. The split is completely amicable, Matt is, was and always will be our main man but he has chosen to focus on other things in life. We love this man and wish him the best

Wizardry however, forges on and are currently looking for a new guitarist. Contact us if your interested or come see us Saturday Sept 10th at Union Pool in Brooklyn were we will be playing with interim guitarist Tyler Vilard who is on loan to us from Bezoar. Justin and I (frank) are currently working on our new record with producer Evan Sobel (Naam, La Otracina) which will be finished in the next few weeks and are super stoked for the future

The main question folks ask us in this is why we don't change the name. Wizardry began as a theatrical classic metal band, a concept that was completely Matt's and I would say a large number of people still think of us in those terms. That era of the band was good to us and is fondly remembered but when we slimmed to a 3 piece in Dec of 2009 we decided we were done with that. If we were going to change the name we really should have done it then but we didn't and now we have played as the current version of the band for just as long as we did the other. Justin and I have written 90% of the music in that time and it definitely reflects where we are coming from and points to where we would like to go in the future and we did it all in the name of Wizardry so Wizardry is what we will be. Some would say we're just making it harder on ourselves and we would have an easier time of it starting fresh, but I grew up on the Black Flag/SST ethos and the easy way reeks of weakness to me. Justin and I have worked hard on this and will go forth with grim determination and true grit, like John Wayne pulling the wagon with his teeth

Besides, we couldn't think of any cool names we would be happy with.

So come out Saturday and hang and see what may be Tyler's only show with us (and catch Bezoar tonight with Karma To Burn and Atomic Bitchwax at St Vitus in Brooklyn!). It's an afternoon show, 4pm, it's Free, and we're playing with great friends Hull and Dead Sands. It's my birthday also so come have some taco's and beers

Thanks for the support everybody,
frank and justin

So much for hipsters being clever.

dude from The Body needs to get himself a rag and a stick and wash that ass!

The Body should go back on the Howard Stern show and reveal more government conspiracies :)

all male bro party, great. hope they wear lots of black play and play as heavy as possible, need to see some masculinity on display.

this is good for those who can't afford the cavemen exhibit, but also don't have enough good taste to see a BETTER band than this garbage. heavy!

whoa whoa whoa, stop the clock.

i fucking HATE the "sausage" comments.
what you fucking herbs fail to take into consideration, is that the "smelly beard metal guy" is in fact a HIPSTER much like yourself, and actually NOT a representation of someone that lives the "metal head" life style. The Charleston & St Vitus are NOT metal.
Oh Sorry. TV on the Radio.

Posted by TheOtherSide | September 9, 2011 2:23 PM

whoa suplecs are still playing? definitely going to that.

"The Charleston & St Vitus are NOT metal." - yep, more like a heavy metal fashion show

hmmm....there is internal strife in sausage nation?

@ Machine Head fanboy at 2:23, dude bands like Black Cobra play at the Charleston, if that's not metal, you don't follow Mike Muir on twitter. What everyone calls 'hipster' metal is either the doom shit that's been going on since the late 90's and for some reason just became mainstream cool, or third-wave black metal. Deal with it, it's metal and it's good. Everyone isn't Bay Area thrash, and everyone isn't kvlt. You're like the metal equivalent of a Serb ethnic nationalist. How cool are you now?

Posted by Anonymous | September 9, 2011 2:46 PM


And that pretty much lumps you in with the whole circle. You suck, Machine Head sucks and every fucking poser in front of The Charleston drinking Pabst Blue Ribbon sucks.
Bay Area Thrash?? "Kvlt?

you have NO idea man.
fuckin fraud. you are a part of the problem.

^ Haha, nice. And I agree for the most part.

Is it true the lead singer of DISMA is a Nazi? If it's true, I would no longer be able to support them.

Posted by Mike97 | September 9, 2011 4:58 PM

@2:46 again

"if that's not metal, you don't follow Mike Muir on twitter."

what the fuck does that even mean???????
i hope you die.

I have gone to Saint Vitus on occasion for the shows, but yes that is a 100% false hipster bar. It tries so fucking hard to be metal, but is a total joke. There is not one original idea in that place, from its Davd Chang bun ripoffs to its shitty booking. BBG please stop doing shows there. It blows.

Same with The Charleston... they used to support independent music, but now its a hollow shell of itself.

See... i thought i was going to get hammered for saying that shit!

I'm from NY. I grew up here, and IN this scene. I'm not "better" than anyone, but i can see through all the bullshit.

I was using those 2 places as an example.. it's those types of people. You see them when its convenient & cool, not when 1349 is playing BB Kings in a fucking Blizzard. Or when Pentargam comes around the 2nd time & shits dead.

So all the dumb "sausage" shit, just pertains to THAT specific sect of hipster if you ask me. As long as 2 or 3 people see eye to eye with me on this, Im good.

2:46 PM

Thats a pretty damn funny comment. Good analogy. Its also so cute to see infighting in the metal whatever little scene over whos more authentic looking like Cliff Burton or liking the real metal. Thats just ridiculous. So whos going to T.G.I. Fridays St. Vitus tonight for food, fun, and dancing?

you must wear cuffed denim shorts.

My my you little children present such a cornucopia of interesting opinions. I especially enjoy the complaints about how certain venues are "false" and of course the usual grumpiness about fellow music fan's fashion sense.

Posted by Anonymous | September 9, 2011 8:59 PM

No 7:42 PM I dont wear denim shorts.
Boy it is true that metal heads are not very perceptive. Must be from all that identical music they listen to.

I do like some 1349 once in a while.
Much prefer Noxagt though.

Guys, c'mon. We all know anyway that

Duff's >>> St. Vitus

The singer of DISMA is not a nazi apparently. He is just a collector of WWII stuff like Lemmy and Jeff from SLAYER.

Spin Doctors album Pocket Full of Kryptonite is way better than this snooze fest.

I absolutely adore the guys - they are just so hot! And I had a great time watching the videos, their music has some unexplainable energy to it.
