Pig Destroyer at Gwar-B-Q 2013 (more by Josh Sisk)
Pig Destroyer

First things first: tomorrow night (1/11) is the BV/Invisible Oranges-curated Red Bull Sound Select show featuring Pig Destroyer, Dysrhythmia, Trenchgrinder, Mother Brain, and very funny host Dave Hill. If you want to get inside, heed the following directions (as told by IO):

--The show is entirely first-come, first-served. No tickets have been sold yet; they're all being sold at the door.

--An RSVP does NOT guarantee you entry. If you were one of the first 150 people who RSVPed, then great! When you show up at the door, you'll only be charged $3 instead of $10. But either way, you still need to show up before Saint Vitus fills to its 220-person capacity if you want to get inside.

--Doors are at 6. Mother Brain will start at 8, but if you want to get in, show up early.

--Once the show is full, it's full. You will not be able beg, plead, cajole, bribe, coerce, or threaten your way inside. SO SHOW UP EARLY.

That stuff aside, it should (will) be a rager. I'll be DJing between bands, so expect death metal of varying degrees of idiocy.

There are a bunch of other live heavy music options this weekend, too. Tonight (1/10) you can choose from Weekend, Vaura, and Nothing at Bowery Ballroom (tix), Destruction Unit, Cottaging, and Crystalline Roses at Vitus (tix), and the more hardcore-flavored Anasazi, La Misma, & Damages at Lulu's. Tomorrow is Pig Destroyer (duh), though if you don't like blastbeats and have a car / live in Port Chester, NY, you can catch Clutch, The Sword, and Crobot at the Capitol Theater. You can also check out our NYC Metal Show Calendar for even more options. It rules.

IO got back up to full speed this week. We debuted new music from Torrid Husk, Délétère, Lvcifyre, Murmur, and the amusingly-named Waldgeflüster. We also gave away the ONLY pair of advance PxDx tickets for tomorrow night on East Village Radio, with more giveaways in the offing -- tune in every week on Tuesday at 10pm. And, as always, our mighty new-release guru Ian Chainey ran down all the new heaviness fit to buy.

Oh, and though we mentioned it earlier today, RIP Brutal Truth and Danny Lilker's touring career. Thanks for all the years of music, guys.

What else?

Can anyone point out the synthesizer parts here? I can hear the samples but I guess this band has synths in their songs, which I was unaware of until I looked them up on Encyclopedia Metallum
