Australia's Whitehorse headlined a rainy night at Acheron yesterday (6/12), joined by tourmates Batillus, NYC doom trio Unearthly Trance and death-grind newcomers Skullshitter (who I caught earlier this week, pictures). The Whitehorse/Batillus tour, which kicked off in early June at Chaos in Tejas, continues in support of a trio of splits for Whitehorse with their tourmates, as well as Cross and Hot Graves.
Without any sort of announcement, Unearthly Trance performed all of their second LP, In The Red, at the show. Video of that performance is still forthcoming, but for now check out video of Whitehorse and Batillus as well as pictures of all of the bands below.
Whitehorse at SXSW 2011 (more by BBG)
Battle stations America! Whitehorse is preparing to rumble the US on a tour with Batillus, hopefully performing material from THREE splits on the way. We already knew about their upcoming split with their tourmates, but Whitehorse is ALSO preparing to release splits with both Cross AND Hot Graves in the coming weeks!
Cross, which features TJ Cowgill of King Dude/Book of Black Earth fame, will contribute two songs to the split 12", due on Blind Date Records. We've got Whitehorse's contrtibution to that 12" for you to stream below.
The Hot Graves split 7" is a joint venture from Sweatlung (AU) / Satanik Recordings (USA) / Super-Fi (UK) / Vendetta (DE). Stay tuned for a full stream from that.

Hot Graves at Northside 2010 (more by Samantha Marble)
Crusty blackened thrashers Hot Graves will release their new Desecration Time 7" via Greyhaze Records on July 19th. The three-song burner, streaming in its entirety below, features two original tracks and an Anti-Cimex cover.
So far Hot Graves have no plans to make it back up to NYC and slay like they did last year at Europa. We'll let you know if that changes, but for now check out all tour dates (in their native Florida) and the 7" stream below...

"Just drove three hours to get to Brooklyn in time to watch a forty minute set. Now were driving back. Floor was amazing #worthit" - MarkFMichael
Floor at Europa
Though a shade under a sell-out crowd, Europa was packed with grins on June 26th for one of only two East Coast reunion shows for stoner/doom greats Floor. There was a good bit of people who came into town specifically for the show, as Steve Brooks remarked on stage and in between bouts of crowd-surfing. ("I see a lot of friendly faces from far far away").
Support for Floor came from a trio of misanthropes: the incredible Unearthly Trance, Javelina and Hot Graves. Florida's Hot Graves specialize in a particularly playful (due to great on-stage banter) blackened thrash with heavy nods to Celtic Frost and Bathory. Meanwhile, Javelina killed the crowd with their sludge-punk sprinkled with killer dual-leads. I cornered one of the band members after the show, who said that they are three songs into a new LP. More on that soon.
Unearthly Trance directly supported Floor, which was somewhat appropro considering that bassist Jay Newman booked their last NYC show many years ago. Their set was peppered with tracks from the forthcoming V, and killed the crowd with spot-on stops and massive riffs. V is currently on pre-order via Relapse, but the band recently dropped a new split with The Endless Blockade on Chrome Peeler. Order a copy.
Currently, Floor has only one tour date on the calendar. They will re-emerge on August 3rd of this year to play Gainesville for the second time in a year.
Tons of pics and a video from Europa are below...
Jucifer at Cake Shop (more by Justina Villanueva)
Northside is here, and that means that we are just days from the Floor/Unearthly Trance/Javelina/Hot Graves destruction party at Europa and the Jucifer / Gloominous Doom wrecking ball at Union Pool. The show is the first of many for the forever-on-the-road Jucifer, who scoots into Canada in early July and hits the west coast by August. Floor's NYC date is one of only TWO Northeast dates for the reunited Florida crew, with Philly getting their taste of that thunder string on June 25th (also with Javelina).
Hot Graves will be in town through Sunday, as the Florida band is scheduled to do a doubleheader with Occultist on June 27th. The party starts at a matinee at The Acheron with the great Batillus and a later show at The Charleston with Concussion. Full dates are below.
If you don't have a Northside badge, or you haven't bought tickets for Floor yet (still available... procrastinators!), don't fret there is still time to purchase both (no advance tickets for Jucifer), OR you can try your luck at winning one of FOUR pairs to Floor or one of FOUR pairs to Jucifer! Details on how to win are at the bottom of this post, along Jucifer dates and some video...
Javelina (more by Meghan McInnis)
How do you make a big show bigger? We are happy to confirm the additions of Javelina and Hot Graves to the previously announced Floor + Unearthly Trance lineup at Europa on June 26th! Tickets are still available. The EARLY SHOW (begins promptly at 6!) will be Javelina's second Northside appearance, having played the BV-BBG Northside show last year at Europa.
Speaking of Unearthly Trance, Ryan of UT serves as bassist/vocalist for Pollution, who will be at Acheron TONIGHT (6/18) alongside Vancouver's White Lung, the conclusion of an east coast tour for the pair (that kicked off at 538 Johnson on 6/10). White Lung has a west coast leg of a US tour scheduled for early July, which kicks off at Sled Island on July 3rd alongside Fucked Up, Built To Spill, Dinosaur Jr, Ted Leo & the Pharmacists, The Melvins (who play NYC tonight also), and so much more. White Lung are touring off of their freshly minted Atlanta 7", out now via Deranged.
For Pollution, this is currently the only NYC date on their calendar, but the band will also play the incredible Dudefest 2010 in Indianapolis this year alongside Arab On Radar, Trap Them, Voetsek, and many others.
Uneathly Trance is also scheduled to appear on July 30th at the Lee Altomare benefit in Amityville, NY alongside the reunited Deathcycle, as well as Altomare's band The Communion, Sick of Talk, Thought & Memory, and Blood of A Zombie. All proceeds will go towards, St. Jude's Children's Hospital and Research Center. Deathcycle will play NYC the next night (7/31) SANS UT, but with rest of the set of that bill (and another TBA) at 538 Johnson.

words by Kim Kelly with intro by BBG, photos by Diana Lee Zadlo
Those of you who travel in the underground metal circles, and live to tell about it, have probably encountered Kim Kelly. The current Philadelphian, whose credits include Terrorizer, Hails & Horns, Metal Injection, Noisecreep, her own PR company (CatharsisPR) and many other ventures, is probably the girl you see on the verge of whiplash in the front row of Eyehategod, or the smiley one with the invisible orange.
In her latest travels, Kelly took a trip to Richmond to take in the Heart of Winter Fest at Alley Katz in Richmond, VA (Friday, Jan 29- Saturday, Jan 30, 2010). The two-day festival featured appearances from Woe, Bastard Sapling, Battlemaster, Evoken, and many others. The "Winter" fest was also, appropriately enough, hit with a major storm that buried the mid-Atlantic in snow. Rather than get buried south of the Mason-Dixon line amidst 24 inches, she and Diana Lee Zadlo opted to leave before it was over, or as the kids call it, GTFO. Her full story is below...
