Ramming Speed at Saint Vitus, September 2013 (more by Caroline Harrison)
Ramming Speed

Back on Friday, October 18, we at Invisible Oranges hosted an afterparty for our CMJ showcases at the Omega Order Warehouse in Brooklyn with Ramming Speed, Phantom Glue, Aksumite and Flown. If you missed it, let me tell you it was a total blast. I got there in time to see Aksumite kill it with punk intensity during what was just their second-ever show. Aksumite's first show the day before at night one of the Invisible Oranges CMJ showcase was pretty nuts, but the band showed that they really excel in DIY-type venues -- check it out in the video of their performance in this post. After Aksumite, Phantom Glue delivered a set of sinister sludge, and then Ramming Speed came on to level the place with speed and fury. Video evidence of that is in this post too, and be sure to check out photos from both night one and two of the Invisible Oranges CMJ showcase at Saint Vitus featuring Pelican, Ringworm, Sannhet and more.

As previously mentioned, Ramming Speed are teaming up to tour with fellow thrashers Toxic Holocaust in November, but first they'll be playing a string of shows down south surrounding their performance at Gainesville, Florida's The Fest. Ramming Speed also play Saint Vitus on November 29.

Toxic Holocaust just released a video for their song "Acid Fuzz" off their new album Chemistry of Consciousness, which comes out this week (10/29). Watch the video below.

All tour dates are listed, along with videos from the IO CMJ late night party, below...

Ramming Speed at Saint Vitus, 2013 (more by Caroline Harrison)
Ramming Speed

On Tuesday, we announced that we'll be sponsoring a free after-party show Friday night (10/18) at The Omega Order Warehouse (94 Bogart Street, Brooklyn, New York). At the time, we mentioned that Aksumite, Phantom Glue, and Flown would perform, with a headlining act in the works. That headliner will be Ramming Speed, who played the Metal Insider showcase last night and who also stopped in NYC in September. If you caught either of those dates, you know that they're pretty much the perfect band to headline an after-hours warehouse party.

Remember that the party is BYO, but there will be kegs of Victory lager on tap that you can buy a cup for (courtesy of Victory Brewing). Head over after our Vitus showcase that night (sold out, but you can try and get in with your CMJ badge if you have one).

Ramming Speed also just announced a tour with metal punks Toxic Holocaust and In Defence. The tour will see Ramming Speed return to NYC one more time this year, dropping by Saint Vitus on 11/29. No advance tickets for that show just yet. All dates are listed in this post.

The tour will come on the heels of the release of Toxic Holocaust's new album, Chemistry of Consciousness, due out 10/29. Stream two tracks below, and if you go to the show, remember appropriate hardcore stage diving etiquette ("Thirty seconds of hesitation and searching for the right spot to dive isn't just embarassing, its just plain pointless."). In Defence, meanwhile, is a bit of a head scratcher. It seems that they're responsible for the video below, "Black Metal Mania." Make of that what you will.

Listen to some new Toxic Holocaust cuts, watch the In Defence video, check out some live footage of Ramming Speed from that September date, and check out their full tour schedule below.

Nachtmystium at Saint Vitus, 2012 (more by Fred Pessaro)
Nachtmystium

Metal Insider have announced the details of their 2013 CMJ showcase. The show will be on October 18 at Europa and will feature Nachtmystium, who were supposedly on hiatus for the year and who haven't come around since their November 2012 Vitus date in support of Silencing Machine. Byzantine (who haven't played NYC in six years), New York's own Black Anvil, Ramming Speed (who played a sold-out Vitus gig with Windhand last week), and Vattnet Viskar round out the lineup. Tickets are available now.

The metal lineup around CMJ weekend is starting to fill out. The Invisible Oranges showcase, featuring two headlining Pelican performances, will go down on October 17 and 18. Lineup and venue details are still emerging; stay tuned for those. As we mentioned, the MetalSucks/Metal Injection showcase -- featuring Fuck the Facts, Fit for an Autopsy, Hivesmasher, Meek Is Murder, and Stomach Earth -- is at the Acheron on October 18. Tickets are available now. And Godflesh's first NYC date in basically forever is on October 19 at Irving Plaza. Tickets are still available for that one, somehow.

Windhand @ Saint Vitus - 9/6/13
Windhand

Richmond, VA's Windhand brought their tour to NYC for a sold-out show at Saint Vitus Bar last Friday (9/6) night. Ramming Speed and The Golden Grass provided direct support.

Judging by the decidedly mixed audience, Windhand is blowing up fast. This band was known almost strictly among metal people even a year ago, and even then were hardly drawing massive crowds. It is good to see a talented band rewarded for their abilities.

We've got some pictures and a full writeup of the show at Invisible Oranges, and more pics below. When you're through with those, check out some streaming tracks and the rest of Windhand's tour dates here.

Hellbent Hooker

If you've never experienced the over-the-top spectacle that is Hellbent Hooker, you're in luck. The sleazy trash metal four piece -- featuring members of Ramming Speed and Mutilation Rites -- put on a ridiculous live show, one that will be in full force on Saturday (8/24) at Union Pool with Hymen Holocaust and Trashawk. Ten bucks gets you in at the door, but prepare for a gross-out session... in the best ways possible.

Meanwhile, you can also catch Ramming Speed when the band joins Windhand and Golden Grass at Saint Vitus on September 6th. Tickets are still available.

Live video of Hellbent Hooker in action, including a full live set from Grand Victory, is below.

Circle Takes the Square (photo by Danin Drahos)
CTTS

As discussed, Gainesville's The Fest is returning this year from October 31 to November 3, and they've just expanded their lineup to include more artists. Additions includes post-hardcore/screamo giants Circle Takes The Square, who have been reunited for a bit but still only rarely play US shows; Geoff Rickly's United Nations, who are also back, but have not been as active as Geoff's solo project; punk vets ALL; Titus Andronicus (who have multiple NYC-area appearances coming up); Fake Problems and more.

Those recent additions join previously announced names like Torche, White Lung, Bouncing Souls, Ceremony, Braid, Paint It Black, Samiam, Knapsack (reunion), The Draft (reunion), The Menzingers, The Lawrence Arms, Hop Along, Code Orange Kids, Creative Adult, Pity Sex, Mean Jeans, Retox, Lemuria, Greys, Tenement, Tim Barry, Toys That Kill, The Night Marchers and more. Tickets for The Fest are on sale now.

Circle Takes The Square returned in December, 2012 with Decompositions Volume Number One, their first album of new material since reuniting and second overall. It's not the instant masterpiece that their 2004 debut, As the Roots Undo, is, but it's still damn good. Download it in its entirety at bandcamp (name your price) or stream it in its entirety, along with the updated The Fest lineup, below.

Goatwhore, 3 Inches of Blood, Revocation and Ramming Speed played a sold-out Saint Vitus last night (4/29), part of a touring package that saw Goatwhore headlining US dates and 3IOB headlining in Canada. Check out pictures from the circle-pitting mayhem at InvisibleOranges.

Ramming Speed at Saint Vitus, June 2012 (more by Fred Pessaro // BBG)
Ramming Speed

Massachusetts thrash animals Ramming Speed continue in the raging party-hard tradition of Municipal Waste, following more in the vein of punk rock than some metal traditionalists may like. The band will embark on a short stint of dates next week with Sexcrement (nominee for greatest band name ever) that will include a stop in NYC at Acheron on Jan 13. Advance tickets are on sale now.

Ramming Speed has roped in Brad Boatright (Audiosiege, mem From Ashes Rise) to engineer their forthcoming LP. So far no home for the thrasher's new effort, but we'll let you know if that changes. In the meantime, catch them at the dates listed below.

Leather at Acheron - 6/9/12
Leather

I spent my Saturday night (6/9) split across two venues, spending the early part of the evening at Saint Vitus catching Ramming Speed, Full of Hell and Skullshitter and the tail end of the evening watching Leather with Shoxx at Acheron. After the predominantly doom-oriented evening the night before, lightning-fast speed was a welcome change.

Skullshitter opened Saint Vitus that night as part of a five-band bill that also included Phobia and Strong Intention. The band, which features a member of Mutant Supremacy/Trenchgrinder, play death-metal tinged grind which was plagued by technical diffuculties throughout the set. Falling drumkits caused many an audience member to run on stage to make sure the set was secure, with the drummer's sibling eventually settling on stage to make sure it didnt move. Despite the equipment issues, Skullshitter were great. Catch them Tuesday (6/12) at Acheron with Whitehorse.

Full of Hell followed Skullshitter, playing a hardcore/grind set peppered with noise while the crowd warmed up and started a circle pit. Vocalist Dylan is an instigator, driving the kids nuts by performing on the floor and pushing his way through the crowd. I've enjoyed these guys for a while and though Full of Hell is young, they have a bright future ahead.

Boston's Ramming Speed followed, and these boys know how to play a live show. Though primarily a thrash band, Ramming Speed knows that the genre's roots are in punk rock and their live show reflects that. Super-high energy set that, even if I didn't already like them, would be endlessly entertaining to watch.

After a few songs from Ramming Speed, I hightailed it over to Acheron knowing that I had missed sets from Raw Meat and Dipers as part of that evening's punk bonanza. Shoxx had already taken the stage by the time I had arrived, ripping out noise-punk inflected hardcore riffs while the crowd raised their fists. With ex-members of Nomos, Pollution & Battletorn amongst them, there was no way that Shoxx could be anything less than interesting and they definitely didnt disappoint. Great band.

Philadelphia's Leather, who recently released a new 7" and is working on a new LP closed out both the Acheron and my evening with a punk rock set that dipped into their current three seven inches (one of which is the pressing of their demo). The crowd moved for the duration of their set and much like Full of Hell, their vocalist performed the entire set from the floor.

More pictures from Saint Vitus and Acheron are below, alongside video of the entire Saint Vitus show with Phobia and Strong Intention included.

Mares of Thrace

Dayton City Paper: How would you describe Mares of Thrace to a stranger?

Frontwoman Therese Lanz: I would describe Mares of Thrace as an armada of angry drag queens riding nuclear warhead-equipped rabid rhinoceroses in a kamikaze mission of destruction into an Alabama Pentecostal megachurch service.

While I can't say that the above description provided by Therese of Mares of Thrace is entirely accurate, the band was hellbent on destruction when they played Saint Vitus on May 15th. The band, who is currently touring on the strength of their new LP The Pilgrimage (out now via Sonic Unyon), was joined by Brooklyn doom favorites Batillus (who played new tracks, some from their upcoming split with Whitehorse), Nashville post-metal quartet Sky Burial, and Brooklyn sludge-trio Mortals. Lots more pics from the show are below.

Sky Burial were on a tour of their own in support of a new record Where Four Rivers Flow which is out now via Replenish.

In related news, Batillus is scheduled to play with Whitehorse and Unearthly Trance at Acheron on June 12th. New band Skullshitter, which features a member of Mutant Supremacy, will open the show. Skullshitter is also scheduled to play on June 9th at Saint Vitus with Phobia, Strong Intention, Ramming Speed, and Full of Hell. Tickets are still available. Stream the Skullshitter demo along with the pictures below.

Phobia at Fun Fun Fun Fest 2011 (more by BBG)
Phobia

After teasing with an EP in late 2010, long-running grind crew Phobia are back with Remnants Of Filth, the band's new LP due via Willowtip on June 5th. Phobia has always had a bit of a revolving door in terms of lineup but their current is impressive: Bryan Fajardo (Noisear, Kill The Client, Gridlink) sits in on drums and Dorian Rainwater (Noisear) on six-string alongside Callum MacKenzie, CC Loessin and lifer Shane "The Pain" Mclachlan. It's this lineup, with Scott Hull behind the boards, that makes Remnants of Filth so potent, as exhibited on the scathing new single "Dementia Having Overdose" available to stream for the first time below. Preorder your copy of the record via the label.

As discussed, Phobia is playing both Chaos in Tejas and Scion Rock Fest this year. The band ALSO has a show scheduled at Saint Vitus on June 9th with Black Anvil (who played Saint Vitus last night), Strong Intention and Ramming Speed. Tickets are on sale.

All dates and that stream, below.

Disma at Union Pool last year (more by BBG)
Disma

The previously discussed August 6th mega-record release at Saint Vitus for Disma with Coffinworm, an exclusive east coast appearance from Loss, and Oak will be a whopper of a show, and now tickets are on sale.

Buzzoven

Threats of hurricane, cancellations (the boat, not to mention Javelina bowed out due to illness), and a dozen years away from NYC could not stop the return of Buzzov*en to NYC, who played Public Assembly on 9/30 as part of a short string of dates.

Ramming Speed and Black Tusk supported the southern sludge lords, BT's second show in NYC in as many months (they supported Fu Manchu at Santos in September). Ramming Speed opened the show and the band's thrashy blackened riffs were impressive and way too fun; this band is too good to be opening shows for much longer.

Catch Ramming Speed and Black Tusk on the road; tour dates, with more pictures from Public Assembly, below...

Weedeater

Yesterday, ticketholders for the previously discussed return of southern sludge-core legends Buzzov•en received an email giving them a refund for their ticket purchase. No, the show is NOT off. That said, it has been moved to Public Assembly on the same night (9/30) AND not only will feature support from Black Tusk, but two more bands were added to the bill. You'll also get sets by Philadelphian sludge destroyers Javelina and Mass-thrashers Ramming Speed! To add insult to injury, we're going to do the entire BrooklynVegan-presented, 18+ show for $15 (it was $35 on the boat). A link for advanced tickets is on the way (we'll update this post). You might also be able to pick one up at the doors which open at 7PM. Get there!
