Sargeist and Behexen are two of the filthiest and best black metal bands out of Finland, and both are making it over to the US for dates surrounding the Martyrdoom Festival at Saint Vitus (6/27-7/1). You may notice that the tour dates, below, roughly line up --- the two bands are closely related and share a couple of members, including guitarist Shatraug. Though it's basically one tour, there are no dates where both bands play, though. If you're along the route, these are tours not to miss, as you may not get the chance to catch the two bands soon after.
Sargeist's excellent new album, Feeding the Crawling Shadows, recently came out --- stream a track below.
In related news, the noisy Philadelphia black metal crew Hexer were just added to Martyrdoom, and there have been a couple of other lineup shuffles in the past few weeks, so be sure to check out the current schedule below.
