Catharsis at The Acheron, Jan 2013 (more by Rebecca Reed)

Influential metallic hardcore crew Catharsis took over The Acheron on January 19, playing to a sell-out crowd alongside the reunited Deathcycle, Gehenna, and Withdrawal. The show was one of only four dates for the band, one of which included an appearance at the A389 Anniversary (along with a reunited Left for Dead). Check out a full set of pictures from The Acheron on Invisible Oranges.

If you missed out on the Left for Dead reunion, pray that Chris Colohan (also Burning Love) was kidding when he said "one-time" only. Either way, there is video of their set from the A389 bash below.

Gehenna at Acheron, Aug 2012 (more by Fred Pessaro // BBG)
Gehenna

Good news/bad news situation here. Bad news? Radiation Blackbody has dropped off the previously discussed Catharsis show at Acheron on January 19. The good news? They've been replaced...... by GEHENNA. That's right, the infamous ones will team with their old split-mates to bring their nihilistic black-metal-induced hardcore back to NYC. The band will join Deathcycle (reunion) and Withdrawal for a whopper of a show that will follow ANOTHER whopper of a show the same day, the previously-mentioned late matinee with Vile Gash, Society Nurse, Slices (who released one of my favorite LPs of last year, this is their final NYC appearance!) and Believer/Law. Tickets are on sale for Catharsis/Gehenna, Vile Gash, or both together.

Of course Gehenna is on the East Coast to play A389 in Baltimore that weekend. Though advance tickets for the shows are sold-out, most of the bands will ALSO play pre-shows/matinees that have tickets at the door.

Catharsis's dates have grown since we last spoke, blossoming into an East Coast tour. All Catharsis dates and Gehenna video are listed below.

Vile Gash

Who doesn't love an afternoon of killer punk and hardcore? Negative hardcore brutality from Vile Gash will headline a matinee, with Society Nurse, Slices (who released their Still Cruising earlier this year) and Believer/Law at Acheron on January 19. Show is at 5PM and ticketing info is on the way. The show is part of a larger set of dates for the final three bands on the bill, with NYC's Believer /Law also set to play WIERD soon.

The show backs into the BV Presented event that evening at Acheron with Catharsis, Deathcycle, Withdrawal and the recently added Radiation Blackbody. Tickets for that are also on sale.

Check out live video and audio below.

Catharsis
A389 has been like Fort Knox with respect to bands slipping out to play other shows on the East Coast. Word is that Left for Dead's one-time reunion at A389 will stick, but fortunately not so for Catharsis:

Catharsis was an influential American hardcore punk band from Chapel Hill, North Carolina that was active from 1994 to 2002. Catharsis were known for writing extremely lengthy songs (sometimes broken into multiple parts) with complex title names and unusual time signatures. They were related to anarchist collective Crimethinc...

Catharsis took appreciable influence from Integrity, Neurosis, His Hero Is Gone, Breakdown, Starkweather, Amebix, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Diamanda Galás, GISM, Refused and the early demo recordings of Belgian hardcore band, Negate. - [Wiki]

BrooklynVegan is proud to present the return of Catharsis along with a reunion from Deathcycle (who's last appearance was with the BV presentation of Winter) and A389's Withdrawal at Acheron on January 19. More details are still TBA, but tickets are on sale.

Head below for streaming video and audio from Catharsis, Deathcycle and Withdrawal, and stay tuned for additional announcements.

Nedelle Torrisi, who is one half of the Asthmatic Kitty-signed Cryptacize and has sung with Sufjan Stevens, Saturday Looks Good to Me and others, has a new musical project called Paradise and her first single under that name is out this week on Thin Wrist Recordings. Produced by Kenneth Gilmore (Ariel Pink), the record features vocal contributions from Ramona Gonzales and Julia Holter, as well some guitarwork from the ubiquitous Dev Hynes. It's lovely pop on the widescreen side of things and is refreshingly not awash in reverb. You can stream the A-side, "I Love Thousands Every Summer" (which has been floating around the internet for most of the year) below and you can check out the elaborate packaging for the 7" here.

Paradise plays two shows this week: Tuesday (11/13) at Glasslands with Field Mouse and WIM (tickets), and then Thursday (11/15) at Pianos with Andy Burrows, Catharsis and Cookies (tickets). While there is a five-piece band version of Paradise, these NYC shows will be just Nedelle and Ryan Keberle (of Catharsis) on piano.

Single stream is below.

A389

A389 Anniversary returns to Baltimore for 2013 with a new venue and an absolutely jawdropping lineup. The previously single-day affair (last year at Sonar) has expanded to two and moved to the considerably smaller Ottobar, and this time added reunions of vicious Canadian brutalizers Left for Dead and Chapel Hill hardcore greats Catharsis (holy. shit.) in addition to appearances from Integrity, Gehenna, Lack of Interest, Despise You, Full of Hell, Cynarae, Ilsa, Old Lines, Weekend Nachos, Pick Your Side and Sick Fix. Early bird weekend passes are on sale now.
