Triptykon - Melana Chasmata album cover

Triptykon, Tom G. Warrior's post-Celtic Frost concern, have announced the details for their second full-length album. It'll be entitled Melana Chasmata, it'll run for about 70 minuts, and it will come out in the States on April 15 -- just in time for everyone to spin it for a month before the band's Maryland Deathfest appearance. Check out the track listing below. That's Alien creature creator and longtime Celtic Frost/Triptykon collaborator H.R. Giger's cover art above. Unsurprisingly, it looks like it's made of dicks.

Prog-metal pioneers Cynic are streaming their new album, Kindly Bent to Free Us, via Pitchfork. It picks up big time in its second half, if you ask me.

New-school black metallers Vattnet Viskar will be touring with Vaporizer in March on their way to SXSW. They'll hit NYC on 3/3 at the Acheron; locals Pyrrhon (my band) will be on the bill as well. All tour dates are listed below.

Powerviolence legends Despise You have added a second NYC show on the day before their previously-announced April 5 appearance. The April 4 edition will take place at The Silent Barn; it'll also feature the new NYC-based iteration of Magrudergrind, as well as Backslider and Grudges.

It's kind of a slow weekend for shows, but there are three sweet events on Sunday (2/9): Pissed Jeans / Purling Hiss / Pampers at the Knitting Factory (tix), Psalm Zero / Yautja / Geryon / Kevin Hufnagel at the Acheron (tix), and Deep Swell / Kings Destroy / The Brought Low at Saint Vitus (tix). Keep an eye on our awesome NYC metal calendar for the latest. It rules.

From the IO department: we debuted music by Dephosphorus and Soreption, and took a careful look at new jams by Impure Wilhelmina, Drudkh, & Winterfylleth. We also spoke to Steve Tucker of Warfather and two members of the underrated and sadly defunct Babylon Whores. We also gave you the week in notable metal releases, and the gave away some tickets to see Amon Amarth, Enslaved, and Skeletonwitch (courtesy of Ticketmaster) via our East Village Radio show. Tune in every Tuesday at 10pm for more giveaways, guests, and brand new metal jams.

Check out the Triptykon track listing and the Vattnet Viskar/Vaporizer tour dates below. Anything else?

Sausage sausage. Saint Vitus glory hole. Sausage sausage sausage. I'm snarky and people care what I think dammit!!! Sausage sausage sausage. Saint Vitus glory hole. Sausage sausage sausage. I'll be back in an hour to post something else about sausage because that's how I spend my entire day. Did I mention sausage? What about the glory hole at Saint Vitus? Sausage sausage sausage!

Sausage L U L Z, amirite?

Serious question: is there really a glory hole at the Saint Vitus bar? I'm not sure but I think I might like to try and see it, if it's really there. Would anyone there frown upon someone taking a few photos? Not of the guys there or anything but of the hole itself?

Wow, this sausage is veering perilously close to D'Onofrio in Full Metal Jacket.

Just what is your major malfunction, numbnuts? LOL

Ah, good ol' H. R. Giger. The prototypical edgy sausage with his ad nauseam repetition and man-childlike fascination with steamy "dark" phallic imagery. At least you sausages will always have Killer Condom to look back on fondly.

The specific Equus 3160 Innova ABS + Professional CanOBD2 diagnostic Code Scanner is going to be mutually the professional's option devised for the full-featured ABS and OBD2 scan device plus a huge alternative suitable for the do-it-yourself mechanic shop

Good metal has always been my weak spot.

Posted by Wentworth | February 10, 2014 6:36 AM

they are trying to help you 2:22/2:58. metal music is buttfuckingly stupid for the most part. the sooner you come to grips with this indisputable fact the better

Posted by Anonymous | February 10, 2014 9:44 AM

Thanks for the "help." I like all kinds of music, including some metal, but I'm glad the arbiter of musical taste is here to steer people straight with some snarky, homophobic comments. Even if I hated metal I would find it hilarious that someone is so obsessed with what music other people listen to that they would spend an inordinate (and I can't stress enough the inordinate part considering the frequency of these posts) amount of time trolling the comments section of this site with his/her repetitive drivel. The only thing funnier than your extremely overinflated sense of your own cleverness is your misguided notion that anyone should or does give a flying fuck about your opinion on music or anything else. I'll venture a guess that you're that person that everyone you meet wants to punch you in the throat after about five minutes. That is all. I'm not going to waste one more second of time on this, but just thought you should know you're a fucking tool. Just trying to help.

^ tl:dr & sausage L U L Z, amirite?

^here you go. you earned this one, luxly.

luxly? what is a luxly?

Posted by Anonymous | February 10, 2014 3:38 PM

3:18 is wayyy confused. Lxly is the guy who constantly writes the boring 'smhamiritesausage' comments. 1:00 is more likely one of the 'buckeyes'

Posted by Anonymous | February 10, 2014 3:47 PM

Wow, 1:00. You spent your entire lunch break from Domino's writing that, didn't you?

S A U S A G E L U L Z indeed.

@3:47 i was under the impression they were all supposed to be the same person or something. just to be clear the costanza golf clap is for whoever the fuck trolled the retard at 1:00 that shit is comedy gold

Posted by Anonymous | February 10, 2014 4:20 PM

^ aha- I didn't catch that. I think it's mostly one person on both sides, but sometimes it looks like other people chime in. Certainly 1:00 looks like it.

Ah, JV troll banter. I do so love to hear the B-team make observations from the peanut gallery.

Back to work, boys - those folders ain't gonna file themselves
