One of Europe's best festivals dedicated to heavy music is taking their show on the road. Behold the Obscene Extreme World Tour:
Since its birth in 1999, over 500 bands have played Obscene Extreme festival from almost every corner of the world, bringing with them a horde of diehard extreme music fans from across Europe and beyond to its home base in the Czech Republic.The previously only-in-Czech-Republic festival's North American date goes down on March 29th-30th in Mexico City. Details so far are sketchy, but look for this vegan-friendly, underground, low cost festival to land some impressive names like previous alumni Asphyx, Portal, Discharge, Nasum, Wolfbrigade, Wormrot, Yacöpsae, Birdflesh, Gride, Disfear, Mob 47, and so many others.
What brings fans to Obscene Extreme is more than the cross selection of new and old underground grindcore, crust, punk, death metal, thrash metal, hardcore and everything in between, but the incredible atmosphere, the real DIY ethic and the true spirit of community. It doesn't matter where you're from or who you are, everyone is the same when they're in the pit!
For over a decade people have travelled the globe, driven across continents and slept in airports and railway stations to make it to Obscene Extreme, and now Obscene Extreme is coming to you - rolling into Mexico, Indonesia and Australia like the United Nations of Grind.

I have heard from a very credible source that the mighty sunn 0))) will return to NYC to play a special show in celebration of the ten year anniversary of The Grimmrobe Demos. Um, yowsers. As details come in, you'll get em.
Sweden's Burst have posted two new tracks from and announced a release date for (September 16th in the US) their new record Lazarus Bird. Dig on "Cripple God" and "(We Watched) The Silver Rain" streaming at their myspace. The band has commented "Expect an album that will NOT be Origo Part 2, but something new", and if this is any indication, should be a good 'un.
Speaking of good 'uns, the Bowery Ballroom show on July 25th featuring Early Man, Valient Thorr, and the mighty Monotonix should be a grand ole time. Wanna get in gratis? Email us at BVCONTESTS@HOTMAIL.COM (subject: Denim Vests) with your first & last name, and we'll randomly pick two winners and drop 'em a pair of tickets each.
