The Chicago black/death metal act Immortal Bird put out a promising debut EP called Akrasia near the end of 2013 -- a polyglot effort that draws from a number of different metal disciplines while belonging to none of them. The band will take their show on the road for an Eastern US tour during February and March, including an NYC stop at the Acheron on March 5. They'll be joined by local notables Mortals, who have an LP of their own due out on Relapse some time this year. No presale yet, but keep an eye out.
All Immortal Bird dates are listed, along with streams of both Akrasia and Mortals' 2012 EP Death Ritual, below...

Mortals at the Acheron (more by Fred Pessaro)
Brooklyn's own Mortals signed to Relapse Records this past spring and announced plans to record new material over the summer. The band haven't revealed any details about the release of that material, but they have announced a month-long North American tour in October and November.
The tour kicks off in their hometown with a 10/23 date at the Acheron with fellow local favorites Black Anvil. Keep an eye out for ticket information here. Watch some Mortals live footage and check out the full run of dates below.
Woe at Acheron on Friday (more by Fred Pessaro)
Philadelphia's Woe kicked off their string of dates with a show in NYC at Acheron on Friday (May 10). There, the band joined a pair of local favorites in Mutilation Rites and Mortals. Pictures of both bands -- plus video -- are available at InvisibleOranges.

Say it with me, Sadgiqacea. OK, i'll be the first to admit that "sad-juh-kay-sha" isn't the most easily read name in heavy music, but for every ounce of irritation that their name causes, they make up for it in riffs. The Philadelphia duo have released their new LP False Prism today via Candlelight, and you can stream it in full below or via InvisibleOranges. The duo's primary MO is in the realm of epic sludge-doom, but look for post-rock, Neurosis-y riffage and black metal to dot the landscape along the way.
In related news, Woe-honcho Chris Grigg sat in to help produce the new Sadgiqacea effort, and he will be a special guest on the InvisibleOranges special airing on East VIllage Radio tonight (5/7) at 6PM EDT. And don't forget that Woe plays Acheron on Friday (5/10) with guests Mutilation Rites and Mortals (tickets), part of a larger tour for the band.
Album stream is below.

False at The Acheron, 9/8/2012
False and Bellow are currently touring their way through the US, but took time out on a Saturday evening (9/8) to damn The Acheron. The show also featured appearances from Brooklyn's Mortals and Yellow Eyes, the former of which recently recorded new material with Kevin of Triac and while the latter was playing their third live show ever. Pictures from their performances are below.
Sky Burial at club 1808 during SXSW (more by BBG)
Tennesee's Sky Burial's new LP Where Four Rivers Flow is out now via Replenish Records. The album ebbs and flows with a clear nod to post-rock, but somehow steers clear of the well-worn pensive-brutal-pensive paths laid by Isis by employing the opposite direction... post-rock kids discover hardcore and doom. Stream Where Four Rivers Flow below in full, download your copy for free and get a physical copy via Replenish Records.
Sky Burial will embark on a string of East Coast dates in May and join on for the previously discussed Mares of Thrace show on May 15th at Saint Vitus, which now ALSO includes Batillus (who is touring with Whitehorse) and Mortals. Tickets are on sale. All tour dates and that LP stream. below.
On a silent and snow-covered street in Brooklyn, Toxic Holocaust demanded a circle pit. The eager crowd at the Acheron on Wednesday (1/12) was willing to oblige them, but settled on a plain old mosh pit instead, which just raged even harder. That's the mark of a great live band. They say. The crowd does. The snowfall brought out the rage in the band too.
"Fuck snow! It took forever to shovel out fucking van. So it's great to have everyone out tonight!"
Toxic Holocaust was in town to launch a tour following the completion of their new-and-forthcoming LP for Relapse Records. Details are limited, but it is expected to be out "late spring 2011". Their tour continues tonight in Pittsburgh. All dates below.
Mortals was the lone support for Toxic Holocaust after a last minute (snow-related) cancellation by The Ominous Order of Filthy Mongrels, and the all-female trio delivered a heavy/sludgy batch of tunes to set off the evening right.
More pictures and some video from the show, with more tour dates, below...
Unearthly Trance at Union Pool (more)
A few notable updates to some previously announced shows.... Unearthly Trance, who released the incredible V (one of my faves of 2010), has been added to the previously discussed Doomriders/Sweet Cobra riff-a-thon happening February 12th at Union Pool. Tickets are still available.
On the much more imminent tip, Mortals and The Ominous Order of Filthy Mongrels have been added as support to the Toxic Holocaust show at Acheron on 1/12. Mortals recently returned from tours with Mutilation Rites and Wizardry and have a new album out now called Savanager. Stream that below, and pick up a copy via their bandcamp. TOOoFM recently dropped their demo on Chainsaw Safety Records, and are currently writing their first full-length LP.
A full list of great shows in the coming weeks and that Mortals stream is below.
