Steve Tucker('s finger)
You may remember that we debuted a song by Warfather, which features ex-Morbid Angel frontman Steve Tucker, a few weeks back. Tucker effectively vanished from music for eight years after appearing on Morbid Angel's 2003 album Heretic before turning up as the frontman for Nader Sadek's one-off death metal album in 2011.
Invisible Oranges spoke to Tucker about the Warfather album and about what he's been up to for most of the past decade. It turns out that Tucker has effectively become a doomsday prepper, which made for an unusual interview:
What are your survival skills?The weirdest part of the interview is that Tucker actually comes off as kinda level-headed about the subject. You can read the whole thing here.
Well, first of all, where I live, I don't need a grocery store. I don't live 100 percent off the land, but I would if I had to. I have tons of creeks full of fresh water, I have deer in my yard, and I have a pit bull who is trained to take down a large animal. I would not starve. Where I live does not flood, and wouldn't be touched by, say, a tidal wave, so my strategy would be to pretty much stay where I am at, and secure the place. A couple years back, we were hit by this big storm called a derecho. I'd never heard of one in my life, but the thing hit in five minutes. We had 85 mile-per-hour winds. It took out my power for 10 days, and when that happened I realized that having water in my garage was a good thing. I gave some of that water in my garage to my neighbors. So it's all about improvisation and just being ready.
The scarier thought is what do individual groups of people do after society breaks down.
It would become tribal. That's the first thing that happens. People will go be with their families, with people they know, trust and think will protect them. Personally I think people will realize they need to get out of cities. They will travel to places like where I live, and ask people like me to help, I think. So the question you need to answer is: who can you trust? It's the same scenario you come across every day ― can I do business with this person? Can I tell this person a secret? ― but survival would be the consequence.

Doomsday @ Union Pool -- 11/3/2012
After a stutter earlier this year, Wolvhammer played their first NYC show at Union Pool on Saturday with special guests Krieg and new project Doomsday (who have a new EP). The tour, part of a larger BrooklynVegan sponsored trek, concluded the day after with a show in Columbus, Ohio. Pictures from the Brooklyn show are in this post, and yes that's Jeff Wilson in the Chicago Tattooing Co shirt in all three bands. More below...

If you were wondering about the third band on the upcoming Wolvhammer / Krieg / Doomsday tour, you aren't alone. Doomsday is yet another project from Jeff Wilson, current mastermind behind Chrome Waves and also-guitar-player behind Wolvhammer. He'll be serving as a member of all three bands during said tour, and joining his Chrome Waves bandmate Bob Fouts for Doomsday, a new black metal project.
Chicago-based Doomsday is preparing to drop their debut EP on Disorder Recordings, a blasting whallop of a release that speeds along six songs in 20+ minutes and includes a cover of GG Allin favorite "I Kill Everything I Fuck." Currently slated for release on CD/digital on November 6, the EP's fury is evident in the first song to emerge from the LP, aptly titled "The Punishment" which makes its debut in this post.
Don't miss Doomsday when they hit the road this fall at the tour listed dates below (including 11/3 at Union Pool -tickets), and while your down there stream the new track, check out the album art and tracklisting as well.

Jeff Wilson of Wolvhammer att Saint Vitus (more by Fred Pessaro // BBG)
Wolvhammer will head out on the road with Krieg and Doomsday for a set of Midwest/Northeast dates brought to you by BrooklynVegan. The tour is the band's first headlining stint East (excluding their planned and canceled dates with Dragged into Sunlight), and they kick off in Chicago (home base for Wolvhammer and Doomsday), eventually making a stop in NYC towards the end of their trek. Look for the trio to hit Union Pool on November 3. Tickets are on sale.
For the curious, Doomsday is another project for Bob Fouts (The Gates of Slumber) and Jeff Wilson (Wolvhammer) in addition to their Chrome Waves venture (who recently toured and played Saint Vitus).
All tour dates are listed below, along with the tour flyer and Wolvhammer live video.
