My favorite of the two Oceans, the one missing a definite article in front of their name (Ocean of Maine), will be the next heavy band to headline Show No Mercy at Public Assembly (Feb 15th). As part of some sort of bizarre doom-off, Ocean will try to out rumble and underpace the mighty Salome, Riff Cannon, and Batillus who are also on board for the (anti-) festivities. Both Ocean (profiled here) and Salome (who we profiled in August) released full-length LPs last year... Pantheon of The Lesser and S/T respectively. Riff Cannon will drop their debut LP in 2009 and Batillus recently made their new self-titled EP available for free download here.
Speaking of Salome, lead vocalist Kat will make her first Agoraphobic Nosebleedappearance on Agorapocalypse, the latest LP from Scott Hull's pummeling grindcore project. Due April 14th, Agorapocalypse won't be the lone AnB in 2009; the band plans a series of splits for this year with a wide array of bands including Despise You, ANS, Agents of Satan and Thrones!

Torche burnin' a hole their way through SXSW - Mar 14, 2008 (EAR FARM)
Now that Torche have completed their trip down to Texas, for whatever reason, they can get down to bidness and play some shows up north right? They haven't been up to the five boroughs since sharing the stage with the admirable Justin K Broadrick (Jesu, Godflesh, ex-Napalm Death, etc) last year and they have that new record coming out on April 8th on Hydrahead....
Good news! We don't have word on a full tour, but they will play a show with The Sword (who have their mostest bestest album ever coming out April 1) and "doom-jazz" band Stinking Lizaveta at Music Hall Of Williamsburg on May 17th! Tickets are on sale.
Big news from the aforementioned Justin K Broadrick.... his FINAL project has released a 4CDR set of his Infinite Guitar 1 & 2 / Guitar & Bass Improvisations Vol 1 & 2, limited to a measly 150 copies. Um, get this now while you still can.....
Justin's old band Napalm Death also played SXSW.

DOWNLOAD: Unearthly Trance - Permanent Ice (MP3)
That's it. I'm calling Mayor "Doomberg" (as El-P calls him)! We need to get one of those keys-to-the-city and have the week of the 21st designated as official Neurosis & pals week.
First, you have the two killer Neurosis shows back to back at a Masonic temple (Jan 24th & 25th... and possibly with Mastodon in tow). Then on the 26th Scott Kelly (of Neurosis & now Shrinebuilder fame) and Jarboe (Swans) play a solo show at the Pussycat Lounge! Make sure to stay and check out NYC mainstays Unearthly Trance lay waste (flyer).
Speaking of the guys from Unearthly Trance..... check for them as they embark on a tour with the always great Pelican and Black Cobra (mems Acid King, and recently off tour with The Sword). Dates at the end of this post.
The last (and first) time Jesu came to the US, the group was plagued with visa issues that resulted in the cancellation of several US dates. Luckily, they got their visa situation sorted out and that March/April 2007 tour kicked off at Irving Plaza with Isis (who'll be there again on 11/1/07 to kick off their tenth anniversary tour).
That premiere show wasn't without its problems; front-man Justin was sick and jet-lagged, their set was short, and the sound wasn't all that great. I've been anxiously awaiting a follow-up headlining tour and I'm happy to say my prayers have been answered. Jesu will headline a CMJ show at the Grammercy on 10/20 with the mighty Torche (tix).
- JESU - PALE SKETCHES: 8 tracks of unreleased Jesu material recorded between 2000 and 2007. Available on CD now, and will start accepting pre-orders for the 2xLP edition in January 2008.
- FINAL - GUITAR & BASS IMPROVISATIONS VOL 1: Only 60 of these suckers will be made. Some will be available online, others will be available at select Final shows. Features 4 songs comprised of bass, guitar, and fx and totals almost 55 minutes.
- FINAL - GUITAR & BASS IMPROVISATIONS VOL 2: Like volume 1, only 60 of these suckers will be made. Also like volume 1, some will be available online, others will be available at select Final shows. Features 3 songs comprised of bass, guitar, and fx and totals just over 45minutes.
- JESU - HEART ACHE: The highly anticpated vinyl version of the classic and rare 2004 release. 1500 copies will be made, 300 of which will be red. They'll start taking pre-orders in January 2008.
So, yeah, tons of tour dates, tons of upcoming releases.... now if Final would just do some US gigs I could die a happy man - Klaus
