Michael Rekevics of Fell Voices at Saint Vitus in 2013 (more by Fred Pessaro)

Two of the Pacific Northwest's best black metal bands are heading to Brooklyn in the coming weeks. First, new news: longwinded atmospheric black metal masters Fell Voices are coming to the Acheron on 7/25 with NYC's Yellow Eyes and Mongrel. That should be great--last time Fell Voices was in town, they leveled Saint Vitus without mics. Tickets for the show, Fell Voices' only one this year, are on sale.

As we've mentioned, Yellow Eyes will also be joining Arcata, California's Ash Borer at the NYC stop of their tour with Portland's doom duo Hell happening at Saint Vitus next Saturday, 7/12. Also on that show is the excellent NYC black metal band Vorde. Like Fell Voices, Ash Borer are specialists in huge, sweeping black metal. Hell are kindred spirits in doom. Tickets for that show are still available. Updated dates are listed below.

Fell Voices and Vorde also have something in common--drummer Michael Rekevics, who also plays in the killer new(ish) black metal band Vilkacis. They were excellent a few weeks back at Pitchfork's Northside metal show at Europa, and you can catch Vilkacis tonight (7/1) at Saint Vitus for the final night of Martyrdoom with Evoken, Lord Mantis, Lycus and Australian funeral doom legends Mournful Congregation. That gets started at 8P--there will be tickets at the door.

Vilkacis also have other shows coming up, including a few dates on the Thou / The Body tour, such as the NYC matinee on Saturday (7/5) at ABC No Rio at 3 PM. All Vilkacis dates are listed, with the updated list of Ash Borer / Hell dates, below...

Serious question...Has black metal become just another form of music where average joes play it or do black metal bands still live the whole evil, satanic lifestylelike Mayhem did, etc. I only ask because half the bands I see on here described as black metal look like mallcore types.

So dumbshit 5:28 sausage fuck is gonna speak out on things now? Break it down for us? The same dumbass that claimed that some sausage was running a hedge fund?

Hey douche hat, how's about you just worry about getting that large double cheese, pepper and onions to me while it's still hot, and let the grown ups worry about all those big "natural order of the universe" concepts, heh?

Awesome track. Is it a remix? What's the original?
