Black metal/doom/post-rock/crust (AKA "The Works"/"Supreme Pizza" [sausage included]) band Agrimonia will be touring the US this November and December with direct support from Phoenix, Arizona's TOAD (Take Over and Destroy) and additional support from a whole lot of other bands. Agrimonia, from Gothenburg, Sweden, features members from a few other Gothenburg groups, including Martyrdöd and Miasmal, but most notably At the Gates (who will be playing Maryland Death Fest this year). Agrimonia released their third full-length, Rites of Separation, earlier this year on Southern Lord. Give it a listen below.
TOAD, meanwhile, put out their all-too-short black/death masterpiece Endless Night earlier this year. That album, chock full of good old fashioned Satan worship, was on heavy rotation on Invisible Oranges on East Village Radio when it came out back in June. "Howling House" might be considered that album's single, but the whole thing rips. Give it a listen below, and note those big wonky riffs and killer vocals.
The Agrimonia tour hits Saint Vitus on 11/25 with
local opener Sannhet, who will be playing the Invisible Oranges CMJ Showcase on 10/18 along with headliners Pelican and support from Wreck and Reference, Pyrrhon, Kings Destroy and Phantom Glue. Tickets are still available for that night, as well as for night one of the Invisible Oranges CMJ showcase the night before (10/17) featuring Pelican, Ringworm, Primitive Man, Aksumite (first show ever), Radiation Blackbody and Hasj.
UPDATE: turns out Sannhet are not playing the Vitus show.
