Black Tusk at Saint Vitus in 2013 (more by Caroline Harrison)
Black Tusk

SXSW may be all about catching the hippest bands--check out the SXSW schedule for a lowdown on what's going on (or browse our "SXSW" tag for some highlights) -- including three BV day parties and the BV official showcase -- but there's no shortage of metal to bang your head to, either. Our metal blog, Invisible Oranges, is putting on a showcase on Thursday, March 13 at the Quantum Lounge (303 W. 5th St.) with Black Tusk, Mutoid Man (members Converge/Cave In), Kayo Dot, Yautja, Wild Throne and Venemous Maximus, and there are a number of other showcases and parties bringing heavy vibes. Here's a rundown of those events (with flyers and more details below).

TUESDAY

On Tuesday night (3/12), Pitchfork's Show No Mercy showcase goes down at House of Vans at Mohawk (912 Red River) with Indian, Kylesa, Power Trip, Christian Mistress, Windhand and Iron Reagan outside; and Youth Code, Gnaw, Primitive Man, Psalm Zero, Sannhet and Yautja inside.

WEDNESDAY

On Wednesday (3/13), it's the first of four Converse x Thrasher Death Match day parties at the Scoot Inn (1308 E 4th St) from noon to 6 across two stages with heavy representation from Earthless and The Shrine, plus some fun non-metal like Black Lips, Trash Talk (who also play the free Thursday BV party at Red 7), Cherry Glazerr and more. Free to the public.

Stereofly is also throwing a free party at Javelina Bar (69 Rainey St) with Yautja, Primitive Man, Gnarwhal and more.

There's also a not-free Heavy Metal Parking Lot day-into-night party at The Lost Well (2421 Webberville Rd) with Wino's reformed Spirit Caravan, The Shrine, Kylesa, Lazer/Wulf, Truckfighters and more. You can get advance tickets to that one.

Wednesday night, Relapse Records (who signed Iron Reagan, who do play SXSW but not this show) throws their showcase at The Dirty Dog (505 E. 6th St) with Windhand, Christian Mistress, Nothing, Obliteration, Primitive Man and Pyrrhon. You can also catch Nothing for free at the Thursday BV party at Red 7 which Trash Talk is also playing.

Not far from there, Roadhouse Management / Nuclear Blast Records will be presenting their showcase inside at Red 7 (611 E. 7th St) with Orchid, Kadavar, Scropion Child, BP Fallon & the Bandits, Mothership, Sweat Lodge and The Well. (Not metal, but outside at that same venue on the same night is our BrooklynVegan showcase. And hey, there are some heavier bands like Touche Amore and Frameworks on the bill.)

Also on Wednesday night, you can catch Wrekmeister Harmonies at Remedy (209B W. 5th St) with a non-metal lineup of Sean Nicholas Savage, Audacity, Tyvek and more.

THURSDAY

Thursday (3/13), the free Converse x Thrasher Death Match parties continue with Windhand, Nothing and not exactly metal (not that Nothing is really metal either), but certainly loud bands Fucked Up, Destruction Unit, together PANGEA and Dirty Fences.

Then at night, it's our previously mentioned Invisible Oranges showcase at the Quantum Lounge with Black Tusk, Mutoid Man, Kayo Dot, Yautja, Wild Throne and Venemous Maximus.

We do of course hope you come, but you can also catch Scale the Summit, The Ocean, Rivers of Nihil, Felix Martin, Vattnet Viskar, The Atlas Moth and Silver Snakes at the Metal Injection showcase at the Dirty Dog (505 E. 6th St).

FRIDAY

It's the free Converse x Thrasher Death Match parties again on Friday (3/14) with the recently reunited NYHC band Judge, the recently reunited '80s-era SST vets Bl'ast, plus quality newer bands like Kylesa, Power Trip, Black Tusk, Sannhet, Lecherous Gaze, Iron Reagan, Southern Lord-signed LA band Obliterations (not to be confused with Relapse-signed Norwegian band Obliteration), Youth Code and more.

During the day on Friday, New England Metal & Hardcore Fest also has a free party at G Pen Annex (corner of 6th and Red River) with Xibalba, Alpha & Omega, Comeback Kid, Backtrack, Counterparts, Downpresser and more.

That night, MetalSucks puts on their showcase at The Dirty Dog (505 E. 6th St), headlined by Animals as Leaders, and also featuring sets by After the Burial, Ringworm, Iron Reagan, Mutoid Man, Whores and East of the Wall.

The last day of the free Converse x Thrasher Death Match parties happens on Saturday (3/15), and though there's no metal at all on this one, you can still rage to Perfect Pussy and Diarrhea Planet.

SATURDAY

Then, Saturday night, Tone Deaf Touring's showcase is at Red Eyed Fly (715 Red River) with Spirit Caravan, Iron Reagan, King Parrot, Vattnet Viskar, Lazer/Wulf, Pilgrim and Vaporizer.

And if you've got a badge, you can check out some of the metal panels during the day, including From Riffs to Bits with James Williamson (The Stooges) and Buzz Osborne (Melvins) on Friday at 12:30 PM, and Has Metal Lost Its Edge? with Brandon Stosuy (Pitchfork), Chris Gigg (Woe), Emilie Friedlander (The Fader), former BrooklynVegan contributor Fred Pessaro (Noisey), and Kim Kelly (Pitchfork) on Thursday at 3:30 PM.

That's a good amount of choices of the heavy persuasion for this year's SXSW, but if you're trying to narrow down the things you want to catch, we've put together a list of 11 metal bands we're looking forward to seeing. Check out that list (in alphabetical order) and along with flyers and set times for the above-mentioned shows, below...

Kylesa at Santos in 20111 (more by Samanatha Marble)

Behemoth at Irving Plaza, 2012 (more by Greg Cristman)

Behemoth frontman Nergal is kind of a badass -- he's an extremely gifted musician and a live-performance powerhouse who's played an important role in putting the potent Polish metal scene on the international map over the past 20 years. He's also a cancer survivor; after his 2010 leukemia diagnosis, he underwent chemotherapy and a bone marrow transplant. Two years later, Behemoth were back on the road and plowing through high-energy live sets like nothing had happened. Again, badass.

Behemoth announced a 2014 release for The Satanist -- their tenth album, and their first in half a decade -- a few months ago. I admittedly haven't been too excited by their last few efforts, but after watching the NSFW video for leadoff single "Blow Your Trumpets Gabriel" (streaming below), my enthusiasm for the band has been rekindled. It's far moodier and more patient composition than the cluttered, robotic death/black metal that they've produced recently. They can still put the hammer down when they need to, though; the song's final minute is both the catchiest and most intense moment I've heard them produce since the mid-aughts. The video is pretty cool too, especially if you're into artsy black-and-white shots of evil rituals happening in slow motion.

In related news, Behemoth were also recently announced as part of the initial lineup for the 2014 edition of France's Hellfest, which will take place from June 20 through 22 (6/20-6/22). The lineup so far is huge and crazy: there's a "huge rock band" stage, featuring Iron Maiden, Aerosmith, Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, and Soundgarden, among others; a big-name thrash/black metal stage that spotlights Slayer, Death Angel, Emperor, Iced Earth, Behemoth, and more; a death metal stage that will include Death To All, Carcass, Opeth, Nile, Gorguts, Hail of Bullets, and Weekend Nachos; a smaller black metal stage topped off by Watain, Gorgoroth and 1349; a sludge/stoner stage featuring Electric Wizard, Monster Magnet, Unida, Kylesa, Godflesh, and Clutch; and a punk stage topped by Walls of Jericho, Millencolin, and Turbonegro. Wow. You can reserve tickets now, if you feel like parsing the Google-Translated ticket page.

Check out the Behemoth video and the full set of Hellfest announcements below.

Decibel

Decibel Magazine is back with its annual top 40 albums of the year list. Two of the top three (including the #1 spot) are reunion albums from death metal veterans, though many younger bands place highly as well. And the one metal album we can safely expect on many non-metal lists, Deafheaven, makes it on there too.

Check out the full list below...

Kylesa @ Saint Vitus - 10/25/13
Kylesa

Kylesa, Pinkish Black and Sierra's BrooklynVegan/Invisible Oranges-presented tour wrapped up in Virginia over the weekend, after stopping in NYC for a sold-out show Saint Vitus Bar on Friday (10/25). We've got a set of pictures and a review over at Invisible Oranges. Here's an excerpt:

This was my first time seeing Kylesa, so I can't really compare this experience to seeing them in a larger setting, but playing in a small club worked for these guys. The house was packed, the sound was huge (and excellent), and the band crammed onto the tiny stage right up next to each other. Kylesa's dual drummer set-up sounded better closer to the stage -- they often double each other, and any nuance differentiating their parts can be lost at a distance. Regardless, this band knows how to play to their strengths, and it didn't hurt that the crowd was packed with folks who leapt at the chance to see Kylesa in a smaller setting like Vitus.
Check out the pictures and full writeup over at IO. More pictures are in this post.

NYC locals So Hideous (whom we recently debuted a track by) opened this show. We missed them, but they're about to head out on tour. Check out those dates, along with more pictures of Kylesa (including one of their setlist), Pinkish Black and Sierra from Saint Vitus, below...

Castevet @ MDF 2012 (more by Fred Pessaro)
Castevet

As we've mentioned a few times in recent weeks, Brooklyn's reclusive metal alchemists Castevet will playing their Invisible Oranges-cosponsored record release show Friday (10/25) at Union Pool, with Oneirogen and Vorde. You may recall that Andrew Hock of Castevet was recently named one of the 30 best guitarists under 30 by, um, Red Bull. There's no presale for this show, but tickets are $10 and doors are at 9pm.

Meanwhile, Wormed and 8(!!) other bands play the Paper Box tonight (10/24). (Tix here.). The NYC stop of the IO-sponsored Kylesa/Pinkish Black/Sierra tour will hit Saint Vitus tomorrow night as well (10/25). (Tix here.) The Weed Is Weed/Godstopper/Yoshiko Ohara/Imperial Triumphant show on Saturday (10/26) we mentioned a few weeks back has gotten a big boost in the form of new headliner (and death metal supergroup) Disma, which makes it one of the wildest (in terms of sheer oddness) metal bills in recent memory. No advance tix available, but doors are $10.

And finally, '90s-era NY metallic hardcore stalwarts Sworn Enemy will hit Saint Vitus Bar on Sunday (10/26) with Dehumanized, Alekhine's Gun, Leech, and Thorn Constellation . Tix for that show here.

Am I missing anything?

For more heavy shows, check out our NYC Metal Show calendar. It rules. Get icky with some streaming Disma below.

Meek

Brooklyn's Meek Is Murder are releasing their sophomore album, Everything Is Awesome Nothing Matters, on October 22, and after revealing one of its tracks, the band are new debuting a second, "Ghost Moth," which makes its premiere in this post. Like most tracks on the album, it's a spastic, ever-evolving tune, and it includes some air-guitar-worthy shredding, not unlike what their producer Kurt Ballou did on "Sadness Comes Home" last year. The song only stays whiplash-inducing speed for so long though, before they pull a 180 and end in a head-nodding sludgefeast. Check it out below.

Meek Is Murder also have some previously discussed hometown shows coming up, including the Metal Injection/Metal Sucks CMJ showcase on October 18 at Acheron with Fuck the Facts, Fit For an Autopsy, Hivesmasher and the live debut of Stomach Earth, the new project of Mike McKenzie of The Red Chord (who once counted Meek guitarist Mike Keller as a member too). Tickets for that show are still available. After that, they join their friends So Hideous (who also have a new album on the way) for a day show (3 PM) on October 26 at ABC No Rio with NJ post-metal quintet East of the Wall and Mary Todd.

So Hideous also open the BV/IO-presented Kylesa, Pinkish Black, and Sierra show at Saint Vitus on October 25. Tickets for that show are still available.

Pinkish Black at WIERD in 2012 (more by Fred Pessaro)
Pinkish Black

As discussed, Texas duo Pinkish Black are set to release their new album, Razed To The Ground, on September 17 via Century Media (the followup to their Handmade Birds debut), and the whole thing is now available to stream. Though they've got ties to the metal scene and elements of doom, it's really the goth/darkwave vibes that stick out most, and this should appeal to a pretty diverse audience. Check it out now, via Pitchfork, and you can also listen to two of its tracks below.

As you may know, Pinkish Black are set to head out on a BV/IO-presented tour with another band on the fringes of the metal scene, Kylesa. Also on the tour is Sierra, who recently released their debut full length, Pslip, on Kylesa's own Retro Futurist label (stream it below). The tour hits NYC on October 25 at Saint VItus, and tickets for that show are still available.

The tour dates are listed, along with streams, below...

Kylesa @ Music Hall of Williamsburg - 6/14/13
Kylesa

After spending most of my Friday night (6/14) of the Northside Festival at the Invisible Oranges showcase (pictures on the way), I headed over to Music Hall of Williamsburg, which was hosting a pretty like-minded bill, to catch headliners Kylesa. Kylesa's current tour is surrounding the recent release of their psychedelic new album, Ultraviolet, but they've actually only been playing a few cuts off of that, instead choosing to split their set pretty evenly between material from their last five albums. The album that got the most representation was 2009's breakout album, Static Tensions, and they dug even further back to tracks like "Where The Horizon Unfolds" and "Bottom Line" too.

With Kylesa's ever-changing sound, their fanbase is becoming pretty split. Those who prefer the older material were probably happy to see how generous Kylesa were with providing it, but everything that characterizes them as a band today was present at the show too. Phillip Cope is now equipped with a more massive electronic rig than usual, allowing him to throw the band's increasingly drone-y atmospheres into their sludgefest, and their light show is more similar to Tame Impala's than it is to most other metal bands. And with Laura Pleasants singing more than ever before on the new album, she fronted the band at the show as much as Phillip did. Needless to tell anyone who's seen them before, but if you haven't, they totally rip on stage. Not a boring moment the entire show.

Check out some videos and the full setlist from the show below...

Kylesa

As mentioned, Kylesa will release their new LP Ultraviolet on May 28, another expansion on their already ever-changing sound. Begin their new chapter by streaming the LP in full below care of Metal Hammer.

White Fence
White Fence

As mentioned, White Fence's new album, Cyclops Reap, is out this week on John Dwyer's Castle Face label. Tim Presley doesn't seem to be running out of songs and this is another quality batch of paisley-scented psychedelia. You can stream "To The Boy I Jumped In The Hemlock Alley" below and hear the whole record over at Pitchfork.

White Fence will be in Brooklyn for the Northside Festival in June, playing two shows: the Panache showcase at Brooklyn Bowl on June 13 and then a late show at Knitting Factory on June 14. Tickets to the Knitting Factory show are on sale now; no word on Brooklyn Bowl tickets just yet.

The whole Panache showcase line-up is still forthcoming but we do know its being headlined by Mac DeMarco and we have updated dates for him below as well.

These are just a couple of the additions to the 2013 Northside line-up that includes that free Walkmen show in McCarren Park. Other new additions, Kylesa, Torche, Sonny & the Sunsets, Nü Sensae, Kisses, The Luyas and more. Northside line-up as it stands now is below.

White Hills at MHoW, Dec 2012 (more by Dana (distortion) Yavin)
White Hills

Brooklyn psychedelic-fuzz crew White Hills have teamed with the jammy Earthless for a split live EP available for FREE via Scion A/V. The effort will feature one track from each band culled from a recent Roadburn-curated event, and you can check out both below including a new interview with White Hills. The WH track and interview make its debut here on BV.

As mentioned, White Hills will hit the road for a string of US dates with Kylesa, Blood Ceremony and Lazer/Wulf. That tour hits NYC at Music Hall of Williamsburg on June 16 (tickets).

In related news, members of Earthless serve in Golden Void, who will team with Pontiak to play Union Pool on Saturday (4/6) alongside My God Music's Terrible. Tickets are still available.

John Lennon

Today is John Lennon's birthday, and so Yoko Ono is giving Lady Gaga an award, in Iceland. John would've been 72. Check out a gallery of the former Beatle's drawings (like the one above) over at the Huffington Post. Yahoo Canada takes a look at some of his letters.

Joe's Pub is celebrating John's birthday tomorrow. Symphony Space honors the man in November. Glasslands gets down in December.

Speaking of Lennons, Martha Wainwright's new album Come Home to Mama, which is also streaming at NPR, was recorded "mostly at" Sean Lennon's home studio in New York City. We're giving away tickets to see Martha at Le Poisson Rouge on Thursday (10/11) via our Facebook.

We are also giving away tickets to The Walkmen's 10/18 show at Terminal 5 with Dum Dum Girls; and Doveman: The Burgundy Stain Sessions featuring Owen Pallett, Dawn Landes, and Steve Salett at Le Poisson Rouge on 10/12.

Speaking of Doveman shows and Wainwrights, help support marriage equality later this month at the Beacon.

In other milestones, Rage Against the Machine's self-titled debut turns 20 this year. To commemorate, the band are reissuing it as a box set, with "never-before seen early concert footage and full 2010 Finsbury Park Victory Concert along with remastered debut album, original demos and treasure trove of videos and music." Yours for only $136.

Likewise, Rancid are celebrating their 20th anniversary by releasing their entire discography as a huge box of 7"s. Pre-orders began today.

To quote Merge Records, "You're Living All Over Me by Dinosaur Jr., the groundbreaking album from the masters of alt-guitar rock, turns 25 this fall. To celebrate, Merge Records is releasing Chocomel Daze, a rare live show (featuring the classic, original line-up of J, Lou, and Murph) recorded in 1987 at Dorrnroosje, Nijmegen, Netherlands. Limited edition on 150-gram vinyl for the first time, this release follows their recent I Bet on Sky." Listen to one of the tracks at the bottom of this post.

Other new Merge releases include the Mountain Goats, Mark Eitzel, Mount Moriah and The Music Tapes.

Mark Eitzel is going on tour later this year.

Rick Ross dropped a new mixtape called The Black Bar Mitzvah. Give it a listen over at bvChicago.

Sergio of Deftones, on stage with Quicksand, 2012 (more by Rebecca Reed)
Sergio of Deftones

With Quicksand (who just played Bowery and MHoW) gearing up to play their last show in the forseeable future at FYF in LA, Deftones are gearing up for what looks to be a string of US dates this fall.

High on Fire

Knowing the High on Fire guys, it's safe to say that the Oakland metal trio will probably try to tour their asses off on the strength of their recent LP De Vermis Mysteriis'. Continuing to prove that true, now comes word that the band will headline a pair of NYC shows which will also feature appearances from Torche and Kylesa (who are currently touring with Gwar). The three bands, a repeat lineup from a previous tour, will hit Bowery Ballroom on August 1st and Music Hall of Williamsburg on August 2nd. Tickets for both the Bowery show and the MHoW show go on AMEX presale on April 25th at noon, and regular sale on Friday.

UPDATE: Torche and Kylesa are no longer on these shows, and have disappeared from the Bowery sites.

The shows are in addition to High on Fire's appearance as part of the Rockstar Energy Mayhem Festival tour which hits Susquehanna Bank Center in Camden, NJ on 7/27, Saratoga Performing Arts in Saratoga Springs, NY on 7/31, and The Comcast Theatre in Hartford, CT on Aug 5th. That tour includes names like Slayer, Anthrax, Slipknot, Motorhead, and many others, which vary by date. More details are available at the Rockstar site. All tour dates are listed below.

Miami four-piece Torche recently played NYC at Gramercy, are scheduled to hit the Orion Festival, and have a new LP in Harmonicraft. Stream that in full at Spin.
