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...

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.
The third round of bands along with the stage rundowns appears below.

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 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. A389 Records is NOW offering Integrity's brand new LP, Suicide Black Snake, for the same fan-friendly price at Bandcamp. While you're at it, catch up on the bulk of the Integrity catalog for free too via frontman Dwid Hellion. Purchase your physical copy of the LP at the merch table if you're in the EU, or via A389 Records. Tour dates are listed below.
In the meantime, A389 is gearing up for "Summer Extinction" in Baltimore, MD on August 16. Featuring a headlining appearance from Ringworm, look for Municipal Waste, Noisem, Power Trip, Full of Hell and Impalers (part of their tour with Vaaska) to all join in on the mayhem. Flyer for the show is below.
Full of Hell at Saint Vitus (more by Fred Pessaro)
Full of Hell's Rudiments of Mutilation is clearly moving. After selling out on preorders shortly after announcement, the first pressing sold through soon thereafter, and now the record is into its second pressing. The digital version has always been on sale at regular price though -- that is until this week. Full of Hell have now released their new LP for pay-what-you-want via Bandcamp for this week only (stream it below). A389 Records have the physical version, which is also disappearing rapidly.
Full of Hell is a touring machine, and will be on the road with Loma Prieta/Fucking Invincible in the coming days before heading across the pond for dates with Circle Takes the Square/Code Orange Kids. No shows in NYC but they do play Hartford,CT at Webster Underground on September 6. Dates are listed, along with the album stream, below.

Trap Them @ Saint Vitus, 6/22/2013
It has been some time since we last saw hardcore/Swedish Death Metal favorites Trap Them pass through NYC, and we're quite lucky to even get a show out of them considering only two were scheduled for the East Coast. That's probably why Saint Vitus on June 22 was a sold-out affair, or it could have been their pairing with the Invisible Oranges-sponsored Full of Hell / Seven Sisters of Sleep tour that crossed into town that same night. Regardless, the show also featured appearances from grindcore quartet Psychic Limb and South Carolinian screamo crew Apart, making for a pretty killer bill (if we do say so ourselves), and pictures from a packed-out Saint Vitus are below.
Check even more photos from the show and video over at at Invisible Oranges.

As mentioned, Full of Hell are on tour as part of an IO-sponsored set of dates with Seven Sisters of Sleep. The tour intersects with Trap Them at Saint Vitus on June 22 with special guests Psychic Limb and Apart. Tickets are still available.

Trap Them at Power of the Riff 2011 (more by Taylor Keahey)
It has been a bit since we saw Trap Them on the East Coast, but there is no time like the present. Thankfully, after an appearance at New England Metal & Hardcore Fest this weekend, Trap Them will return to the East Coast to play a couple of dates, as reported on Invisible Oranges. The shows include a stop at Saint Vitus on June 22 with Full of Hell and Seven Sisters of Sleep (part of their IO-sponsored tour), and with Psychic Limb as support. Tickets are on sale. Trap Them also play June 23 at Great Scott in Allston, MA.

KEN Mode at Saint Vitus in NYC earlier this month (more by Caroline Harrison)
Bad news: Pinkish Black has been forced to cancel tonight's appearance (March 16) at the BV / Invisible Oranges showcase at The North Door.

Here's tonight's full, updated line-up:

Savages @ CMJ 2012 (more by Dominick Mastrangelo)
SXSW gets underway today (3/13) in earnest, with 83,207 bands* playing SXSW this year. Trying to figure out who to see can be an overwhelming feeling. (Actually, just standing on 6th St. on Friday night is an overwhelming feeling.) Hopefully this post will give you some inspiration if you're among the throngs of people. Or maybe just some new stuff to listen to if you're not there.
Of course you could just hang out at all our day parties (our first starts at noon today!) and evening showcases, as we're really proud of our line-ups. But there are bands who we are pumped to see who aren't playing too. So here are 40 bands we're genuinely pumped to see in Austin this week. We made a Spotify playlist of all the bands (at least the ones on the service) you can stream below.
Check out our list below...
*not the actually number of showcasing bands. But it feels accurate.
