Morbid Saint at MDF 2012 (more by Fred Pessaro)
Morbid Saint

Since it's impossible to avoid, you surely already know that the Super Bowl is this Sunday. NYC show options are thus a little thin that day, but there are some good ones coming up this weekend nonetheless.

Tonight (1/31), Coliseum will hit Saint Vitus alongside Primitive Weapons & Tidal Arms (tix). On Saturday (2/1), you have a few options: Morbid Saint at Saint Vitus (tix), Nomad / Sad Boys / EEL at the Acheron (tix), and Throaat / Blackout / Call of the Wild / Hessian at Union Pool. Keep an eye on our NYC Metal show calendar for the latest. It rules.

In other news:

Local live staples Tiger Flowers have signed to Melotov Records.

Ævangelist, who headlined a sick show last Saturday, have released a new track. Stream it below.

Agalloch will release their much-anticipated new album, The Serpent & The Sphere, on May 13 via Profound Lore.

Mötley Crüe are breaking up after roughly 35 years as a band. They've even signed a contract that bars them from reforming to tour again. Tens of people are surely heartbroken. Alice Cooper opens their final tour, which hits Jones Beach and PNC Bank Arts Center (tickets).

On a darker note, Slayer guitarist Jeff Hanneman was not included in the "In Memoriam" portion of the Grammys Awards ceremony, drawing their fanbase's ire. Hanneman would've turned 50 today.

At the Gates are releasing a new album, for which the prognosis is pretty good. Young Widows, meanwhile, debuted their own new album in sneaky fashion.

We had a good week over at IO, with exciting new jams by Yautja, Artificial Brain, and House of Apparition. We also ran down all the riffs fit to buy, as always. Plus, y'know, googly eyes.

Check out that new Ævangelist song below. Anything else?

Props to Motley Crue for (a) being the only tolerable glam band of the 80's, and (b) signing the contract to make sure no one has to see them on a Depends-sponsored tour.

I will form a crüe tribute band so that the crüe sluts can remain gainfully employed in a safe and respectable job. Look for my kickstarter project soon; I'm going to need a van, drums, guitars, amplifiers, microphones, techs, roadies, slut counselors, wardrobe consultants, and a publicist.

6:32/6:12/7:09 had disappointingly horrible experiences with Mandingo at Glasslands Gay Bath House. Maybe you'll get HIV next time, as Mandingo was currently clean :(

I can't make up my mind: is it more embarrassing to play this stuff at 23 or 50?

One of life's great mysteries.
