Black Tusk / Red Fang @ Saint Vitus, 11/12/2013
Red Fang and Black Tusk played their second of two NYC shows together last night at Saint Vitus (11/12), and though Indian Handcrafts dropped off due to visa troubles, Lord Dying was more than able to pick up the slack opening the show. The show was the third in two days for Black Tusk, who also played Acheron as part of a Sandy benefit as well as Bowery Ballroom earlier that evening (11/11).
The show was one of two that I went to that evening, stopping by MHoW to catch Death Grips with Mykki Blanco. Pictures from MHoW are HERE, but you can check out more pics from Saint Vitus below.

In addition to Bowery Ballroom tonight (11/11) or Saint Vitus tomorrow (11/12), Black Tusk will play a special late night show at Acheron tonight. The show, a benefit for Hurricane Sandy relief, begins with doors at 11:30 PM with an $8-10 sliding scale entry fee. All money will go towards OccupySandy, specifically the purchase of goods to help the relief effort. Head to the show to support a good cause or if you cant make it, purchase some relief goods on your own.
In related news, Indian Handcrafts were supposted to play dates on the tour but due to issues at the border, the band has been replaced by Lord Dying on all dates. Lord Dying's last NYC show was at Saint Vitus with Witch Mountain back in June.
After kicking off a tour at Scion Rock Fest, Witch Mountain linked up with Lord Dying to hit the road for a string of US dates that included Saint Vitus on Friday (6/8) with Pilgrim and Bezoar. Pictures from that appearance adorn this post.
Witch Mountain's support for the evening was definitely strong. Bezoar celebrated the release of their new LP Wyt Deth (stream it below) with the Saint Vitus show and were followed by Pilgrim, who's set ended abruptly after three songs when guitarist threw his SG across the room. Lord Dying was the biggest surprise of the evening though, recalling early Mastodon as hinted on their recent demo.
What separates Witch Mountain from the pack is vocalist Uta's truly epic range. These vocals provide an excellent contrast to the blues-y doom riffs that drive the Portland-based quartet. If you haven't heard them, catch up with South of Salem (out now) to prep for Cauldron Of The Wild, due out 6/12 via Profound Lore.
More pics, that Wyt Deth stream and some videos are below...
Witch Mountain, who play Scion Rock Fest this weekend, are on the road with Lord Dying later this week and will swing by Saint Vitus on June 8th. Tickets are still available. WM, who released their South of Salem LP via Profound Lore, quickly sold out of the first pressing of their disc and the second pressing is now available via their own Monastic imprint.
'The show will also double as a Bezoar record release party for Wyt Death, the band's new LP which is streaming below, along with tracks from Lord Dying and Witch Mountainbelow. Did I mention that Rhode Island's Pilgrim is also on board?
Wolvhammer has dropped off of all dates with Dragged into Sunlight, including Saint Vitus on June 14th. The band has been replaced by North Carolinians Make, who toil in psychedelic doom. Check out a stream of their LP Trephine below, and get your tickets while their still available.
This month's Show No Mercy has dropped at Pitchfork, featuring interviews with Atriarch and Nachtmystium and a new track from the latter.
