The collaboration between The Body and Full of Hell is coming soon after being talked about for what felt like for forever. They've released a new song from One Day You Will Ache Like I Ache, which comes out March 25 via Neurot (pre-order), called "The Little Death."
Those expecting brutality here will not be disappointed. The screeching noise of The Body colliding with the furious grind of Full of Hell essentially renders the concepts of "notes" or "discernable sounds" more or less irrelevant. This is a blistering wash of fury, punctuated by drum and vocal breaks, thundering breakdowns, and pervaded by a general air of insanity. You can stream it below.
The Body and Full of Hell will tour Europe together in April. Before that, FOH will be in NYC to play Music Hall of Williamsburg on 3/11 with Pig Destroyer, Dropdead, and recent additions Cloud Rat and Mother Brain. Tickets for that show are still on sale.
The Body have their own new album on the way too.
Stream "The Little Death" (via Spin) and check out tour dates for Full of Hell and FOH/The Body below...

Grindcore greats Pig Destroyer have a few dates coming up this year, including a NYC show with Dropdead and Full of Hell at Music Hall of Williamsburg on March 11 (that's a killer lineup). Tickets for that show go on sale Tuesday (1/12) at noon. All dates are listed below.
Pig Destroyer put out a reissue of their classic album Prowler in the Yard in 2015, which you can still snag over at Relapse. Their last new album was 2012's Book Burner.
Guitarist Scott Hull is also busy with Agoraphobic Nosebleed, who are prepping the release of their Arc EP for January 22. It contains their first recordings since 2009 and it's the first of 4 EPs set to release in 2016. They just premiered the second of three tracks from Arc, which is called "Deathbed." Like "Not A Daughter," it's a crushing, seething 8-minute riff-monster of a doom song. More hulking and less groove-oriented for the beginning, it explodes around the 5-minute mark into a swinging, swaggering southern-rock riff that just floors. It's another stunning piece of work from Scott, Kat Katz and company that has us excited for all the new music in store from these guys.
New Pig Destroyer bassist John Jarvis, who plays live with PD and Agoraphobic Nosebleed, is also in that new Phil Anselmo supergroup Scour.
Speaking of Full of Hell, they just officially announced their long in-the-works collaborative album with The Body (who are collaborating with everyone these days). That album will be called One Day You Will Ache Like I Ache and it comes out on March 25.
You can check out the teaser for that album, the new Agoraphobic Nosebleed song, the Prowler in the Yard reissue, and Pig Destroyer dates below...

Norwegian black metal heavyweights 1349 have announced a loaded U.S. tour with Brooklyn's Tombs and Pennsylvania grindcore outfit Full of Hell. The "Aural Hellfire" tour will stop off in NYC for a show at Saint Vitus on January 14, and tickets are on sale now. This will mark 1349's second stop at Vitus in less than a year. All dates are listed below.
Full of Hell also have a new 7" called Amber Mote In The Black Vault, and you can stream "Halogen Bulb" off that below. A full-set live video of 1349 at Vitus in 2014 is below too.

The tour hits NYC twice on October 17, first for a matinee at ABC No Rio and then for a late-night show at Acheron (tickets). That's a midnight show happening after the Subhumans show at Acheron that same night.
Full of Hell have a new release on the way too. They'll put out the Amber Mote in the Black Vault 7" EP with three originals and a Melvins cover this November on Bad Teeth Recordings. While you wait for that, listen to their recent Merzbow collaboration Sister Fawn, with their list of tour dates, below...

Trap Them are currently on the Deathwish Fest Europe tour with Converge, Harm's Way and YAITW, and North American shows are planned for this summer. It's a three-date tour with Full of Hell that hits Brooklyn, Cambridge, and ends at Montreal's Obscene Extreme festival.
The Brooklyn show happens August 20 at Acheron with White Widows Pact and Siblings opening. Tickets are on sale now. All Trap Them dates are listed below.
Speaking of Harm's Way, they're also touring the US after DW Fest Europe in continued support of this year's Rust. The tour leads up to their appearance at This Is Hardcore, and hits NYC on July 21 at Knitting Factory with The Beautiful Ones and Eternal Sleep. Tickets for that show are on sale now. All Harm's Way dates are listed below too.
Maryland Deathfest is less than a month away (May 21-24), and the lineup was already stacked with Neurosis, Napalm Death, Yob, Triptykon, Primordial, Inter Arma, Tombs, D.R.I., Conan, Ufomammut, Sodom and so many more. Yet MDF still felt the need to sweeten the deal, so they went ahead and added one more to the lineup: Mobb Deep.
You didn't read that wrong, and it's not some foreign metal band with a lawsuit ahead of them. The legendary Queensbridge hip hop duo Mobb Deep are playing at 11:30 PM on the Thursday of MDF (5/21) at Baltimore Soundstage, amongst this otherwise metal, hardcore, and metal-related lineup. It's not crazy -- it's not like Slayer wasn't on Def Jam, Anthrax never collaborated with Public Enemy, and metal and hip hop haven't had a crossover fan base for years -- but it should be interesting to see how this goes down. Tickets for just the Mobb Deep show are on sale, and anyone with an MDF 4-day pass or a Thursday Soundstage ticket can get in too.
Mobb Deep also have several other dates including a hometown NYC show this weekend at BB King's on Sunday (4/26) with Funkmaster Flex, Alchemist and Smif-N-Wessun. Tickets for Sunday's show are still available.
Meanwhile, their seminal 1995 album, The Infamous, turns 20 tomorrow (4/25). Listen to "Shook Ones Pt. II" from that record, with their tour dates and the updated MDF schedule, below...

Winnipeg crushers KEN mode recently played some stuff off their upcoming sixth album, Success at one of the BV-SXSW parties, which we mentioned sounding closer to AmRep noise rock than their previous material. Now they've revealed the first studio recording from the LP, "Blessed," and the AmRep comparisons are even more apt here than we realized seeing it live. It seems very appropriate that the album was engineered by Steve Albini, mastered by his Shellac bandmate Bob Weston, and features an appearance by Oxbow's Eugene Robinson. (It also awesomely features members of Full of Hell.)
Success will be out on June 16 via Season of Mist. Watch the video for "Blessed," via Noisey, below.
KEN mode also announced a tour with fellow AmRep worshippers Fight Amp. That comes to NYC for a show on June 18 at Saint Vitus with killer local support from Pyrrhon and Couch Slut. Tickets for Vitus should be on sale soon via Ticketfly. All dates are listed below.
In related news, Fight Amp have announced the followup to 2012's Birth Control. It's called Constantly Off and will be out on June 9 via Brutal Panda. You can watch an album trailer with clips of new music, below.
Water Torture in Germany in 2014
Buffalo, NY's two bassist, one drummer powerviolence trio Water Torture are on this year's Maryland Deathfest (browse the schedule), but ahead of that, they'll play NYC twice. The first is a headlining show at Saint Vitus on April 19 with Beefrot, Huldra, Nerve Shatter and Leather Lung, which they say will be the first show with their new drummer (tickets). After that, they'll return to the same venue to open the Saint Vitus (5/16) stop of the Full of Hell / The Body tour (tickets).
The only other date we're currently aware of is a Cambridge show in May. Full tour schedule, and a stream of last year's Pillbox LP, below...

Australian death metallers Portal are coming over to the US for Maryland Deathfest in May, and not long after that they'll play an MDF-presented NYC show on May 27 at Saint Vitus with MDF-mates and related band Impetuous Ritual, plus Negative Plane. Tickets are on sale now. It's their only other US date we're currently aware of.
Since we last spoke, there's been some lineup updates to MDF. The day-by-day schedules can be viewed below and they include new additions Gnaw Their Tongues (also playing Apex Fest at NYC's Trans-Pecos and California Deathfest) and Blood Red Throne. Those are in place of Dragged Into Sunlight and Metal Church, who both dropped off. Certain shows are sold out, but all available ticket options are HERE.

Hardcore maniacs Full of Hell and sludge/drone metallers The Body are teaming up for a tour together this spring. It kicks off in Providence in mid-April, and ends back there in mid-May. Just before it wraps up, they'll play NYC twice in one day: Saturday, May 16 at ABC No Rio and Saint Vitus. Check ABC No Rio's calendar for updates, but presumably that one's a matinee show and they play Vitus at night. Vitus tickets should be on sale soon via Ticketfly. All dates are listed below.
After the tour, Full of Hell and The Body plan to record a collaborative record together, which definitely sounds like something to look forward to. And these are two bands who love collaborations. Late last year, Full of Hell put out a collaborative LP with Merzbow. That came up with a CD-only bonus disc called Sister Fawn which has five extra tracks, and that's now been made available for online streaming. Listen below.

Long-running NYC experimental band Zs debuted their newest lineup in 2012, which is founder Sam Hillmer with Patrick Higgins and Liturgy drummer Greg Fox, and now they're set to release the first album with that lineup, Xe, on January 27 via Northern Spy. It's Zs' first non-remix or live full length since 2010's New Slaves. They recorded it live with producer Henry Hirsch (Madonna, Mick Jagger, etc), and Tauba Auerbach handled the album's artwork and sculptures. The first single, "Corps," is out now and it's a 12-minute bouncy avant-garde jam that you can check out below. Album artwork and tracklist also below.
Zs have some shows coming up in January just ahead of the release, including an album release party in their hometown on January 21 at Le Poisson Rouge with Mick Barr, Michael Beharie, Bryan Kasenic and Phil Tortoroli. TIckets for that show are on sale now. All dates are listed below.
Sam, Greg and Patrick also gave us their year-end lists for 2014. While the latter two stuck to their favorite albums, Sam gave us his list of the 10 Most Anonymous Comments on Brooklyn Vegan in 2014. You can find out what ended up on those lists, with the song stream and album tracklist/artwork, below...

Eyehategod at Acheron in July (more by Mathieu Bredeau)
In welcome news that shouldn't be particularly surprising, after a year of hard touring behind their excellent new self-titled LP, Eyehategod will continue playing a bunch of shows in 2015. They've announced a two-night NYC run happening at Saint Vitus on February 6 and 7. The shows will feature excellent support -- the first night featuring crusty Brooklyn crushers Mortals, who also released a great album, Cursed to See the Future, this year, and just finished touring with Wolvhammer. That first night lineup is filled out by two more Brooklyn bands, the sludgy Blackout and the grindcore outfit Scowl.
The second night will be find Eyehategod joined by absolutely filthy PA grinders Full Of Hell, who recently put out a collaborative album with Merzbow and are also opening for American Nightmare at Webster Hall (sold out). Night 2 also has local doom/electronic project Cleanteeth and New Jersey sludge crew Clamfight. Tickets for both shows are on sale now.
Meanwhile, Eyehategod's Mike IX Williams on tour now with his other band Corrections House, having hit Saint Vitus this past Monday.
All upcoming Eyehategod dates listed, along with streams from some of the openers, below...

Tombs at Saint Vitus in July (more by Greg Cristman)
Maryland Deathfest is getting a little more New Yawk with the late addition of NY old-school death metal band Suffocation and Skinless and Brooklyn's own post-metal greats Tombs. Suffocation and Tombs will be playing will be playing the Edison Lot, and Skinless will be playing the 5/21 Ottobar show.

The final round of bands for Maryland Deathfest 2015 was announced and a stacked lineup was stacked even higher. The highlights are numerous, including Agoraphobic Nosebleed's first live set, Amorphis playing their classic Tales from the Thousand Lakes in its entirety, Inverloch jamming out tunes from their former incarnation diSEMBOWELMENT, super-deathers Bloodbath playing an exclusive US show, and ripping speed-metallers (and suddenly influential) Razor making their first appearance in the States in over two decades. The full list of bands featuring other big names -- YOB, Obituary, and Cephalic Carnage to name a few -- appears below.
In addition to the adds, MDF XIII also announced the stages the bands will be playing, including Thursday pre-fest shows filled out by YOB, Ufommamut, Internal Bleeding, Origin, and others. The exact schedule will be pinned down at the end of August. All ticket options will go on sale September 5 at 3 PM. The early bird sold out in record time, so be on the ball for that one.

Noisem at Maryland Deathfest 2013 (more by Fred Pessaro)
Noisem, Baltimore's death/thrash steamroller, is wasting no time hitting the streets again. After supporting Carcass, The Black Dahlia Murder, and Gorguts on the North American Decibel Magazine Tour, Noisem will now slide into the headliners seat for a nine date roadtrip of the East Coast. Joining them is Jarhead Fertilizer, a dystopic powerviolence pain-maker including members of Full of Hell. The tour blows into NYC on May 13 at The Acheron with Skullshitter in tow. Tickets for that show are on sale now. All dates are listed below.
Previously known as Necropsy, Noisem took on their new moniker in 2013, releasing a 25 minute core-powered assault titled Agony Defiled on A389 Records that same year. Their style is a synthesis of the crossover of yore, rekindling the spark of the nimble Wehrmacht while grinding away any fat that might slow them down. Recently, the group participated in the Decibel flexi series ("Defiled") and shacked up on a split 7" of covers with Occultist. Their choice of odes? A pitch-perfect blast through grindfather Repulsion's "Slaughter of the Innocent."
All dates are listed, along with streams of Agony Defiled and "Slaughter of the Innocent," below...
This Is Hardcore returns to Philly's Electric Factory from July 24-27 and as usual it's got a great lineup spanning generations of hardcore including Converge, Title Fight, Madball, Blacklisted, Bl'ast, Code Orange Kids, Nails, Noisem, Power Trip, Incendiary, Full of Hell, Crowbar, Coke Bust, Ringworm and many more. Tickets for the festival go on sale April 12 via the festival's website.

The band have just announced another week-and-change North American tour for later in the spring, this time with the great hardcore/grind act Column of Heaven and the brutal noise unit Nyodene D. The tour will hit NYC at Silent Barn on 4/27, with additional local support courtesy of The Communion and Skullshitter. No presale, but unlike Full of Hell's Vitus show, this one is all-ages.

Integrity at MDF 2013 (more by Fred Pessaro)
Last week's surprising pay-what-you-want announcement for Full of Hell's mammoth Rudiments of Mutilation was a welcome surprise, but may be the start of a (very welcome) trend.

While you're at it, catch up on the bulk of the Integrity catalog for free too via frontman Dwid Hellion.
