Richmond noise-rockers Hex Machine recently completed a round of tour dates that took them out west.

All tour dates are below.
Bad Dream also play Union Pool a month later with True Widow.

Hex Machine @ SXSW 2009
FRANCOSO (aka Dr. Happy Roll) prescription of BASS GUITAR throbbing attack from super excellent bands Sleestak and Noise Information extreme underground disease music; RUIZ (aka Oki-Sapo) delivery of ultra explosion tiger DRUM style makes rhythm music with Slowrider, Loser, Harelip and Daniel Lanois very sparkle boom sounds; NELSON (aka Momotaro) on monster hot rod ELECTRONIC DEVICE style from Unicorn, Man is the Bastard and or Bastard Noise very ear pain groups! Please enjoy GERONIMO original spirit sounds with smile and ear happiness!While I enjoy that that brief synopsis on the origins of Geronimo (taken from their own MySpace page), Aquarius Records does one better:
CAVEMAN THIS HEAT.Any band that has a mention of This Heat, Man Is The Bastard, and Aluk Todolo is worth a look for me. Geronimo are currently touring the east coast and have a show scheduled in Brooklyn on Thursday (August 27th) at Death By Audio with the mighty Hex Machine and the equally kick ass Pollution.
Sold? We would be. Imagine Man Is The Bastard transported back to the early seventies and let loose in This Heat's Cold Storage recording studio, or take the black hypno kraut noise of former aQ record of the week, Aluk Todolo and strip it down to its bare essence, a sound based almost entirely on rhythm. A pounding, Neanderthal groove, pelted with squelches, and laced with a strangled inhuman mewling, huge chunks of grinding minimalism and long swaths of dreamy shimmering bliss, an ultra intense slab of kraut-doom power violence for sure.
Hex Machine are rocking a handful of dates with Geronimo before heading out on the road to do a few with Dysrhthymia. The pics above and below are from SXSW when they played the Slow Southern Steel Showcase along with Rwake, Zoroaster (who recently played The Studio @ WH), The Devil & The Sea, and Music Hates You.
Pollution has one other dates scheduled. It's at the DIY spot Stolen Sleeves Collective with Battletorn, Regrets, Black Kites, and Swallowed Up on 9/10. All dates below...

CT & Rwake in Tampa, FL (Nicole Kibert)
Scion Rock Fest in Atlanta is just a few days away (Feb 28th) and until the opening tones of Kylesa's guitars, we'll present a series of discussions with some of the key artists taking one of the four stages at the Masquerade. Yesterday we spoke to Scott Hull of Pig Destroyer and Agoraphobic Nosebleed. Today it's CT...
I'll always remember the first time that I picked up Judge's Bringing It Down and saw..... "Mike Judge: Throat". Damn right. Conversely, Rwake's liner notes in Voices of Omens and If You Walk Before You Crawl, You Crawl Before You Die credit CT with "vocals". I beg to differ.
CT's rusty razorblade of a throat and his band of Arkansan hooligans, Rwake, have been around for more than ten years, trudging in sludge, doom, and wading in the generally unpleasant mucky southern marsh that birthed Eyehategod and Buzzov*en. Rwake dropped their last LP in 2007, the critically acclaimed Voices Of Omens. Since then the band has kept busy on the road, and CT has spent a good portion of his free time at the helm of a documentary examining the southern underground metal scene. It's called Slow Southern Steel.
With Scion Rock Fest right around the corner and Rwake set to hammer the Masquerade stages, We sat down with CT to discuss his band, the movie, and emerging artists on the southern metal scene.
Rwake released Voices Of Omens in 2007, since then have you guys been working on any new material? If so, any recording plans? What are they?
Yes, we have a few new songs, but we'll be holding off on playing them for a bit. We want them to be just right. One new song is 11 minutes long and it's called "It Was Beautiful, But Now It's Sour" we have about 3 more in the making that are almost finished. When we get em done, I'm sure we'll be headed right back to Sanford [Parker]'s to lay it all down.
