The parade of post-Chaos-in-Tejas touring brought Origin of M to The Charleston on Friday night (6/17). The Japanese hardcore band played their final East Coast show before shipping to Portland for two final US dates. Pictures from their appearance in NYC with Brain Slug and Agitator adorn this post.
Friday was a busy one in NYC for fans of punk and heavy music. While Origin of M was bloodying themselves, Deafheaven was at Cake Shop, Iceage/Prurient was at Public Assembly, Clean Teeth, Colossus & Wizardry played Acheron all while Northside Festival and a normal Friday in NYC was going on.
Speaking of Wizardry, they play again today (6/21) as part of Make Music NY.
More pictrues from The Charleston are below.

While I was going hardcore at Emo's, metal and garage were well represented at Red 7 on Thursday. Split across the venue's two stages, the outdoor patio was reserved as a Garage stage with The Spits, The Arrivals, Shellshag, TV Ghost (who are on tour with The Spits), High Tension Wires, and OBN III's, while the indoor stage housed metal from Hooded Menace (who played Union Pool before Texas), Undergang, Acephalix, Bone Sickness, and Mammoth Grinder. Pictures of many of the bands from from both stages at Red 7 are below.
Origin of M
After the show, I met up with Keith and Harriet to trek over to The Broken Neck, a DIY venue hosting an afterparty with Tragedy (who played Europa before Texas) and Origin of M. We arrived just in time, as they were letting one in and one out due to capacity issues. We were able to slide in after a short wait. Origin of M played a crusty hardcore set with some rock style leads (ala Thin Lizzy) and sounded good, though the singer's drunken ranting in Japanese was a bit off-putting/odd. Slamming beer after beer, he loved to crowdsurf almost as much as loved to rip beer-cans apart in his mouth and chew on the aluminum. Yum. Tragedy, as usual, were unbelievable despite a PA system that was clearly DIY (and on the brink of toppling over).
The previously discussed Ghost show at The Studio at Webster Hall (on June 1) gets more impressive with the addition of Sabbath Assembly and Natur to the bill. Tickets are on sale. Sabbath Assembly features vocalist Jex Thoth, and the band recently wowed the crowd at Roadburn 2011 with their retro-blues-y compositions punctuated with Thoth's sultry vocals.
After a killer succession of demos and splits (including the favorite Life Without Hope... Death Without Reason demo pressed on vinyl via Parasitic Records last year), Profound Lore has posted a new track from the always impressive Loss, whose debut LP Despond will be released by the label on May 31st. Fans of funeral doom, behold "An Ill Body Seats My Sinking Sight" available above.
Japanese hardcore punks Origin of [M] will release their debut 12" on vinyl via Burai Core. Fans of crusty Japanese style hardcore, take note and catch the band at one of their upcoming US dates including an appearance at both Chaos in Tejas and at Acheron on June 17th. All tour dates and the tour flyer is below.
Kieltolaki is also playing from Chaos In Tejas, and will also log a NYC show too. Look for the band to team with Brain Killer and Nomad at Acheron on June 11th. Kieltolaki released Massahypnoosi on Feral Ward last year.
Krallice is currently streaming all of their new long-player, Diotima, at NPR. You can also stream the previously discussed Agoraphobic Nosebleed / Despise You split in its entirety at Crustcake. Krallice is hitting the road with Withered for a set of dates including The Studio at Webster Hall on 5/2.
A list of upcoming NYC shows and a stream of a new Morbid Angel track is below.
