Chain of Strength at Acheron in 2012 (more by Fred Pessaro)
Hardcore vets Chain of Strength, who were briefly around from 1988 to 1991, reunited in 2012 for Revolution 25 (pics) at Irving Plaza and a much smaller Brooklyn show at Acheron (pics). They've since played LA in 2013 and it turns out the reunion isn't over yet, as they'll be going on a short Northeast tour in June with Turnstile, Strife, Mindset and Praise which brings them back to Brooklyn's Acheron on June 15. Tickets for that show go on sale via Ticketfly on May 8. All dates are listed below.
The brief tour is leading up to their appearance at Canada's Amnesia Rockfest (6/20-21) with blink-182, Motley Crue, Weezer, Alice In Chains, Megadeth, Primus, Danzig with Doyle, Mastodon, Cock Sparrer, Black Flag, Fear, Dead Kennedys, Misfits, Joan Jett, Brand New, Taking Back Sunday, Meshuggah, Henry Rollins, Rocket from the Crypt, Judge, Strife, Glassjaw, Dying Fetus, Cannibal Corpse, Title Fight and many more. Tickets for that fest are on sale now.

Sick Of It All celebrated 25 years of New York Hardcore at Webster Hall on Saturday (3/26), playing to a sold-out Webster Hall with Snapcase, Merauder and Razorblade Handgrenade. For Snapcase, the show was their first appearance in NYC in three-plus years, since headlining Music Hall of Williamsburg as part of a Callum Roberts benefit. Snapcase currently has no other NYC dates in the near future, but those of you upset about missing out on Sick of It All are in luck; they have now been officially revealed as the special guest playing Black & Blue Bowl 2011 alongside Gorilla Biscuits, Agnostic Front, and many others. Tickets for that May 28th Webster Hall show are still on sale.
Webster Hall was an odd place to be on Saturday. The hardcore show, the Hull/Horseback/Batillus/Caltrop show at The Studio, and an "Awesome 80s Prom" were all going on at once in the mammoth venue. Pictures from the Hull show are on the way, but for now check out some more pictures and some videos from upstairs at Webster Hall, below...

It is currently Snapcase's only date, so make sure and jump on that... they ruled Fun Fun Fun Fest.

Tickets are on sale.
Cannibal Corpse will play Santos on Nov 19th with Dying Fetus, Vital Remains, and Devourment. Tickets are on sale. The show is one of two at Santos for Devourment, as the band will also support Cattle Decapitation a month prior (10/18, tickets).

Starkweather at ABC No Rio
This Is Hardcore Fest 2010 details are officially in the open, and the three day Philly festival will feature appearances from Sheer Terror, Ink & Dagger (with Geoff Rickly of Thursday filling in on vocals), Kid Dynamite, Cro-Mags, Nails, Ringworm, Starkweather, Trapped Under Ice, Seraphim, and many others. The full list is below. Tickets are on sale for the full weekend, or each individual day (Fri, Sat) though Sunday (with Kid Dynamite and Ink & Dagger) is sold out.
One of the This is Hardcore bands, Starkweather, played ABC No Rio on Saturday (May 29) with Rosetta and Shell Shock, one of TWO Rosetta shows for the weekend (the second was the BV/1000 Knives production with Ken Mode). I ducked out before the headliner Shell Shock, and missed a good portion of Rosetta's set due to beverage consumption across the street, but Starkweather were as good (better?) than I had remembered, playing a mix of metal and hardcore all anchored by vocalist weighty and powerful Rennie Resmini's voice. The band's material from their new LP This Sheltering Night sounded fantastic live as well (cop that). More pictures from their appearance are below.
Another This is Hardcore band, Seraphim, is also on board to play SATURDAY at Cake Shop alongside Altered State, Voyager, and Monolith as part of a BV/1000 Knives/Science of Silence production. The show kicks off at 5PM!
Some pics and video of Starkweather at ABC No Rio, and the full This is Hardcore fest lineup are below...
Let us beer, Entombed!
Let the flood gates open... some of the great artists lined up for MDF are starting to announce US dates surrounding the epic festival. So far that list includes Converge and now the latest additions Entombed! The Swedish Death Metal masters have announced a string of US dates with Merauder including Gramercy Theater on June 2nd. Tickets are currently on presale.
Meanwhile, fellow Swedish Death Metal gods At The Gates are preparing The Flames of The End DVD, a 3DVD set that includes a documentary on the band, and entire live set from Wacken, and a compilation of live clips. Preorder that now.
It goes without saying that bands like At The Gates and Entombed have heavily influenced the current crop of metal big shots like The Black Dahlia Murder, who will also be in NYC in the coming months as part of a greater tour with the killer death metal of Obscura as well as Hatesphere and Augury. The NYC show is at Santos on 3/20. Tickets are on sale.
Some videos and full Entombed and BDM dates are below....

Agnostic Front @ Knitting Factory, 8/21/08 (hardcoreshutterbug)
Hardcore is always screaming about unity, and in times like these, it's admirable that those aren't empty threats. A gang of NYHC bands have teamed up for a benefit for two of their own, Dr. Tom and Walter "Monsta" Ryan of Subzero and Merauder who has liver cancer. NYHC legends Sick Of It All, Cro-Mags (jam), Murphy's Law, Maximum Penalty, Subzero, Jasta (aka Jamey Jasta of Hatebreed) and many others are playing a benefit show at Studio B (we'll let you know if that venue changes) on 9/27. Tickets are on sale, check out the flyer down below. If you can't make the show, there are two other ways you can help..... buy yourself a CD and/or sign up for a free website.
What the hell is a Cro-Mags (jam) anyway? No, it isn't Trey Anastasio playing a 25 minute version of "We Gotta Know" nor is it the latest concoction from Smuckers..... Cro-Mags (jam) is the throat of Village Voice cover star John Joseph with a crew of "No-Mags" providing the soundtrack (aka John is the only original member in the group. The other original members have toured as just "Cro-Mags") . The jam band is also on board for this year's Fun Fun Fun Fest along with ALL (who recently reunited), Dead Milkmen (who also reunited), Flipper, Adolescents, Integrity, Young Widows, Trash Talk, Walter Schriefels, Bad Brains, Bouncing Souls and many many many others.
Bouncing Souls AND Sick Of It All are also playing a NYC show, together, at Terminal 5, with Grey Area. Tickets are still available.
In possibly-related, possibly-NYHC news, Vision Of Disorder will put up their dukes with Indecision, Overcast, and Nassau Chainsaw on Nov 16th at Irving Plaza. Who is Nassau Chainsaw, you ask? NC is a collective of musicians from two very different NYHC bands, Neck and Locked in a Vacancy. Tim Williams (VOD), Sal Lococo (Sworn Enemy), and Mike D(Car Bomb) all lend vocals to their album. VOD's Dead in NY DVD is due on November 11th on Koch. Tickets go on sale 8/30 at noon. VOD's last reunion show was at the Crazy Donkey in Farmingdale. This will be their first NYC show in a while.
As we mentioned a couple weeks ago, the original line-up of Biohazard is playing Irving Plaza on Oct 5th. Tickets are on sale. The band recently did the same thing at L'Amours (which is now in Staten Island).
Subzero recently opened up for Body Count.
