Mick Barr with Krallice at House of Vans last Year (more by Fred Pessaro // BBG)

Six-string guitar deity Mick Barr will join Tim Dahl and Kevin Shea for a performance on August 16th at Zebulon. Cellular Chaos and From Bacteria to Boys will join in on the madness for the evening, so prepare for an evening of jaw-dropping instrumental prowess. You have been warned.

The show goes down six days after Mick plays the previously discussed Basilica Music Festival in Hudson NY (on 8/10). There Barr will join names like Liturgy, C. Lavender, Brian Dewan, Gang Gang Dance, Prince Rama, The Psychic Paramount, Hiro Kone and more over the two day extravaganza. Tickets are still available for you procrastiating folk.

In also-Mick-Barr-news, his celebrated black metal project Krallice have released a stellar new song in "IIIIIIII" from the forthcoming LP Years Past Matter. Stream that below, and preorder a copy of the LP via the band directly. Krallice will celebrate the release of the new LP at Saint Vitus on August 25th with Ancient Wound and new addition Sea of Bones. Tickets are still available.

That song stream and the Krallice cover art are below.

Oh, those silly scarves.
Sorry, you weren't allowed anyway. 12 and over.

12:42- At the Codeine show (le Poisson Rouge)there was someone in the crowd with a full knit cap. It was nearly 90 degrees outside and hotter inside. These are the type of simpletons who somehow attempt to project an air of superiority towards "sausages". It's why I can never get too angry at whatever they post. It's like getting angry with someone with a disability.

People who wear knit hats or scarves in summer are morons. Just like people who cover their body in tats then expect to be taken seriously.

Truth is truth regardless of who it comes from.

This track is absolutely wonderful to listen to. The melancholy in the chords strummed out are some of the best ever written hands down. Euronymous would be very proud of what has come of the unique style he introduced into music.

I would like to hear the vocals take on the originality of the music. NY has a few very good bands in this form: Krallice, Mutilation Rites, Castevet, etc... In my opinion of course, vocals need to be looked at with the same creativity as the music. If Krallice, considers this, I believe will propel them into another plane of originality.

I think Krallice can take Black Metal into a legitimate direction and evolve it. Hopefully it does not have to be called Black Metal anymore. I grew up in the 80's hardcore punk scene. Really, does that label apply properly at all anymore? Who cares? Great music matters! Anyone who survived past 27 and has played music matured to that right?

I still listen to Mayhem, Darkthrone, Immortal, Drudkh, Burzum, etc...and many new old school Black Metal bands which are very good no doubt, but Krallice is a new light in the sky.

Looking forward to the show at Saint Vitus.

Most definitely, 1:57 and 2:13. Most definitely. Right on target indeed.

Yes, 1:16? Were you trying to show me an item for show and tell on your wishlist? You're so so simple!

I always listen to Krallice before I go to bed and each time I do I can never sleep. It's just a little to heavy for bed time music.
