Batillus at Subterranean (more by Carmelo Espanola)
Batillus

As discussed, doom greats Batillus and Whitehorse have teamed up for a split 12" due via Vendetta Records. The band will have copies when they hit the road for a string of dates together that will include a stop at Acheron on June 12 but you can hear the first track out of the gates, an edit of "Feral" by Batillus, for the first time below.

Besides those Whitehorse dates, Batillus will also play NYC with Mares of Thrace (who are on tour/have a new record), Sky Burial and Mortals at Saint Vitus on May 15th. Tickets are on sale.

Stream that new Batillus track below.

Lulz, this sausage looks like a parody caricature from a Daniel Clowes comic. He needs to head back to 1990 and deliver my pizza while avoiding the noid.

Is that Chris Barnes or Zakk Wylde?


Mr. HIV-positive trendy Atlas Sound fan thinks he's clever. Maybe the Pains of Being Pure At Heart can do a song about getting your test results back.

4:54 PM Just because we are not impressed by people playing typical doom metal & "hardcore" dress doesnt mean we like shit indie pop music you mentioned. This identical indie metal is such a trend now days is not even funny.
In fact Godflesh is genius and they didnt play dress up or were into to excessive image posturing.

yea, unemployed sounds about right.

5:50: I hear ya. Just tired of the fucking lame hip-trendy people pulling that "sausage" and "lulz" nonsense. In fact, I pretty much agree with you. And Godflesh rules.

I don't know what the big deal is regarding the singer's style. How should he dress? Why does it matter? Why the need to criticize? Would you rather he comply with the recent trend of normal looking dudes with beards in plaid shirts?
