An avalanche of new tracks today, including the new title track from the forthcoming "Harmonslaught" 7" by Torche, a new Ghost track (HERE), a new Suffocation track from their forthcoming LP, and last but not least a new Portal track. The latter will appear on the band's forthcmong new LP (!) Vexovoid, due via Profound Lore on Feb 19, 2013. Check out all of those new tracks below.

Saviours @ Saint Vitus
Saviours headlined Saint Vitus on 11/30 with Ramming Speed, reeling in support from locals Elks and Bad Dream. Pictures from the show are below.
The show was part of a string of dates for Saviours/Ramming Speed, the latter of which will play solo dates across the country leading up to an all-ages New Year's Eve show in their hometown of Allston, MA at WWTAWWTAP. Full tour dates are also below...
Nunslaugher @ the Acheron
Nunslaughter will team with Mausoleum, Vile Vindiction, Hypoxia, and Demized for a show at Saint Vitus on 11/19, the day after the previously discussed Black Anvil/Bloodiest show at the same venue. Check out a very belated set of pictures from Nunslaughter's last appearance in NYC at Acheron below.

Saviours are hitting the road for a string of dates with Ramming Speed, tagging Saint Vitus on 11/30 for a show with Elks and Bad Dream.
If you missed it, we are currently streaming the Trenches/Drainland split, streaming the Total Abuse LP, caught Batillus/Inter Arma/Belus, getting stoked for the return of Nasum, gearing up for our FFF Nites show with Doomriders & From Ashes Rise, streaming some new/old Void, streaming the new Panopticon and Wreck & Reference, and so much more.
More suggested NYC shows, that Sulaco stream, and a Magrudergrind live set from Shea Stadium are below. What did I miss?
Saviours during Fun Fun Fun Fest (more by BBG)
There's a fine line between embracing your roots and aping them. While Oakland's Saviours wear their influences proudly ( Thin Lizzy, Iron Maiden, Motorhead and gods of the 70/80s riff), the band has always distinguished themselves from their retro-leaning peers with great songwriting and a fun live show. Now Saviours have put away the pipe long enough to craft a new set of beer-soaked stoner jams out on September 6th!
Saviours are preparing Death's Procession, the band's latest set of ass-kickers due on Kemado. The new eight track LP features "The Eye Obscene" and "To the Grave Possessed", the latter of which makes its first appearance in this post. Stream both below, you can almost hear glasses clinking and motorcycles roaring in the background.
Though Saviours will be bypassing NYC on their current trek with Weedeater (are you kidding me?), they will be hitting a ton of East Coast dates. Weedeater though, plays a BrooklynVegan/Osiris event on September 10th at Europa with Oxbow, Bison BC, Fight Amp. Tickets are on sale.
Dates and songs below..
Dixie Dave on stage with Buzzov*en at MDF (more by BBG)
Apparently resurrected after their encounter with a frightening Mancoon, Weedeater (with a spankin' new website) will hit the road in early September for a round of dates through middle October. Support will come from Saviours, Bison BC & Fight Amp, except for NYC & Philly who Saviours will bypass, with NYC getting a rare appearance from Oxbow! The show goes down on September 10th at Europa (ticketing information is forthcoming). BrooklynVegan is the proud sponsor of the Europa date and the tour as a whole.
All tour dates and that "Mancoon/Turkey Warlock" video is below.
Inquisition @ Red 7
Will the whole thing be like this? I'm currently in Austin, TX prepping to see Fun Fun Fun Fest (tickets here) this weekend and already in the two days leading-up Red 7 has hosted a pair of killer shows. The Wednesday show featured the new Faiza Kracheni (ex-Hatred Surge) project Mindless alongside the crusty and blackened Wolvhammer. Last night (11/4), Chaos in Tejas hosted a free and eclectic heavy shindig headlined by Saviours and featuring Inquisition, Pack of Wolves, HOD, and Naw Dude.
The punishment at Red 7 continues through the weekend and into Sunday (11/7), when BrooklynVegan will host Landmine Marathon, Mammoth Grinder, Ratking (mems Made out of Babies, Gorilla Biscuits) and an act that was previously listed as "special guest" that we can now reveal as Floor! The Red 7 show is their only non-Fun Fun Fun Fest show (they play the festival proper that afternoon) coming up, and quite possibly could be their last show EVER. If you are in the area, get down to Red 7... it's free with your FFF writband and a measly $5 without.
Unfortunately I missed all support for the Wolvhammer/Mindless show, as well as Pack of Wolves, HOD, and Naw Dude (all bands I was looking forward to seeing), but pictures of the rest, below...

Download the album at the site or above, and dig on the tracklisting (and some video) below.
Saviours at Union Pool (more by Paul Birman)
Saviours will team up with Priestess, Hamsoken (black metal featuring Nick Forte of Rorschach), and new Relapse signees Titan for a show at play Santos Party House NYC on August 22nd. Ticket info is forthcoming. The show will be the first for Saviours since supporting Saint Vitus in October of last year, and will take place a day after appearing at Ozzfest in Camden (tickets still available). Priestess last played NYC in April supporting High On Fire at Gramercy.
Titan have recently completed their new album Sweet Dreams for their new label Relapse Records. Recorded with Brendan Tobin (of Made of Babies, etc) at Translator Audio in Brooklyn, the LP will hit shelves on October 12th.
Saviours are currently touring Europe with Weedeater and Black Cobra. Black Cobra will be back in NYC on July 30th with the great Howl, Struck By Lightning, and East of The Wall at The Studio at Webster Hall. Tickets are on sale. It's not the only great metal show coming to that venue; Zoroaster, Black Tusk, Dark Castle, and Hull play there this Friday (July 9th). Tickets are on sale.
All Saviours dates, and some videos are below...
Goatwhore classes up Ozzfest
Die, die, die already! After 2008's Ozzfest featured just a single date and 2009 was non-existent, I figured that maybe, just maybe, Ozzfest had finally been put to bed. I was sadly mistaken. Over six dates across the US, 2010's Ozzfest will feature appearances from (I think) an almost completely missable main stage of Ozzy Osbourne, Motley Crue, Halford, Devildriver, and Nonpoint along with a semi-respectable second stage featuring Black Label Society, Drowning Pool, Kingdom of Sorrow, Goatwhore, Skeletonwitch, Saviours, and Kataklysm. Ozzfest hits Hartford, CT on 8/21 and Camden, NJ on 8/22. Tickets go on sale 5/22. All dates and some videos are below.

Matt Martinez of Landmine Marathon belts it out (by Jessie Barber)
While BBG and Kim Kelly were trolling about the blackened stage at Bernie's, getting southern-fried by the Louisiana frighteners Thou, and checking out the thundergods known as YOB, Chris and Jessie were on the case at the other Scion Rock Fest on 3/13 in Columbus, Ohio. Pictures from their travels which include some (more) shots of Landmine Marathon, as well as Shrinebuilder (right before they played NYU), Pelican, D.R.I., Black Tusk, Voivod (who then made their way to SXSW), Magrudergrind, Saviours, and so much more, below....
Shrinebuilder at LPR (more here)
Atlanta no more! Scion Rock Fest 2010 will take place in Columbus, Ohio on March 13, 2010. The show will officially expand its reach from one to FOUR venues in Columbus: Circus, Newport Music Hall, Skully's, and Bernie's Distillery. 2010's lineup contains zero return bands from the 2009 festival but does contain sets from bands that released my favorite albums of last year (namely Magrudergrind, Yob, Absu) and played my favorite shows of last year (Lightning Swords of Death, Landmine Marathon, Trap Them, Black Tusk, Ludicra) in addition to sets from headliners Cannibal Corpse, Voivod, Shrinebuilder, Brutal Truth.

Laura of Kylesa (more by Paul Birman)
Earlier I discussed my favorite LPs of the year, but why leave the fun to just one? I asked some of my favorite artists and promoters for their 2009 highlights. The responses were great. You already saw some of them. Justina listed some quotes, Liam Wilson talked about Philly, and Josh Graham listed good things about 2009. They continue below. You'll find lists of favorite songs and albums of the year, not to mention answers to crucial questions like:
- What are Coalesce's favorite pizza toppings?
- Which one of my top 20 artists of the year tried to get in a cab with Kirsten Dunst?
- What is the #1 sauce/condiment of 2009?

Consider this the "Swedish Death Metal" edition as we'll focus on a few bands that have taken cues from the great sounds of Entombed, Dismember, Grave, and so many others. As such, lets start off with Fatalist! Though they hail from the land of sun and surf (California), Fatalist have nailed the tone of early (Stockholm) Swedish Death Metal sound, putting their own spin in their songwriting. Featuring ex members of Exhumed, Fatalist's debut album The Depths of Inhumanity is out on 11/23 via Ibex Moon and for a taste of the killer riffs that the band has cooked up, dig on "Internal Misery" above.
Lets get it out of the way, Nirvana 2002 is not a boxset from a certain Seattle band. In fact, Nirvana 2002 is the name of a lost Swedish Death Metal band who will finally release their full recorded output via Relapse Records, Recordings 89 - 91. The band that featured vocalist/guitarist Orvar Säfström (ex-Entombed) have released the "Mourning (Projections of a Stained Mind)" MP3, available for download above after it recently premiered on Decibel. If you love the sickening Swedish Death Metal buzzsaw sound, these long lost tracks are a welcome surprise. Orvar Säfström recently discussed his top 6 favorite Swedish Death Metal albums.
Much like Fatalist, Gravehill is also a sickening early death metal worship act from California. Gravehill's Rites Of The Pentagram LP is out NOW via Enucleation and the title track is available for download above. The band recently played the NJ Death Fest along with Acheron, who are releasing their latest LP and first in six years, The Final Conflict: Last Days Of God, on Ibex Moon.
Mala Suerte doom away on their latest crusty, dimly lit LP, The Shadow Tradition, available via Hellride Music. Download a pair of tracks from that Austin band's LP above. Mala Suerte have been around since the 90s and released a few LPs of their filthy Grief-like psychotic doom as well as a split with Japan's Coffins.
A Mala Suerte video for "Non Servium", Coalesce, Ghast, Eyehategod, Fuck The Facts, Zoroaster, Graveyard, thoughts on the new Slayer, and more as TWIM continues...
Twenty three years. That's a long time, and even more pent-up doom frustration. Luckily, Saint Vitus were happy to oblige the crowds at Europa on 10/16 by playing an incredible set of doom classics to an electrified crowd who spent their energy moshing.... slowly.
Saviours had already taken the stage by the time I made it to the packed (sold out?) Europa (I missed both Orphan and Bassoon). The Oakland band gave a predictably awesome and thrashy performance filled with Maiden-style dual leads, touching on both their recent Into Abaddon and their upcoming Accelerated Living. As much I dig their records, their magnetic live show is where it's at. Like the Cali boy he is, vocalist/guitarist Austin Barber spoke between songs in his heaviest smoked-out Jeff Spicoli.
"Who's ready for Vitus! Yeee-ah, brah!"
I was, and so was the crowd (no offense brah).
As Saint Vitus was setting up, Dave Chandler was checking his gear by riffing on "Nervous Breakdown" by Black Flag and it reminded me of their connection to the legendary band and SST Records. Signing to SST on Henry Rollins' advice, Saint Vitus were easily the diametric opposite of the hardcore and punk mindset that came along with the label; while everyone was pushing tempos to the brink, Vitus were playing at speeds infitely slower. The band played to mostly punk crowds, pissing off the bulk of them and creating a legend in the process. THAT is punk.
Save for a few wrinkles and hair that had gone monochrome, I'd venture to say that Saint Vitus was every bit as good as I would have imagined them to be. Songs that suffered from thin and hollow production came alive and rattled with power at Europa. The band was tight and did justice to their legacy.
Though it was great to see Wino JUST on vocals (he's usually an axeslinger too), taking an active role with the crowd by shoving the mic in their face for singalongs, Dave Chandler was the most enigmatic of the bunch. It's hard to miss Chandler with his shock of grey curls held back by a bandana; his look would have fit in with Lynryd Skynrd perfectly... in 1974. "Born Too Late", indeed.
70's look aside, Chandler would snarl, yell, feedback, and mouth the words while riffing at the speed of a tortoise. In between songs, Chandler would riff odd songs like "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" and "Batman" before transitioning into classic Saint Vitus tracks. Odd? Yes. Kinda funny and genuinely fascinating? Definitely.
Lets hope that Vitus gets the show back on the road. I hope to seem them again sometime very soon.
Full setlist and more pics are below....
Lest we forget, doom legends Saint Vitus have scheduled THREE east coast dates kicking off Friday night at Europa when they team up with Saviours, Orphan and Bassoon. Tickets may still available, but I also have TWO PAIRS OF UP FOR GIVEAWAY! More details on how to win at the bottom of this post.
Orphan played Lit Lounge on 9/7, supporting Dark Castle, The Body, and Malkuth. Pics from that show are below. Dark Castle are on the road through the bestter portion of the rest of the year. If you haven't seen them live, you must. Dates below too...

"The show opened with Saviors, a heavy metal band out of California... there wasn't anything too original about this band. The second act was The Walkmen, an indie-rock band from NYC. They played mostly new music, saying they'd be recording these new songs this week. It was good, but once again, nothing original and nothing I'd pay to see. Dinosaur Jr. came on around 5:45pm with the sun still blazing away, which made taking pictures a bit difficult. Dinosaur Jr. formed in 1984 and is a band that many consider to be one of the grandfathers of alternative rock." [soundZtastee]Nothing original?! Granfathers?! Ouch! Dinosaur Jr. pictures and setlist HERE. Saviours and Walkmen below...

Saviours at Union Pool (more by Paul Birman)
Saviours have been added to all three previously announced Saint Vitus dates, which include Europa on 10/16 (tix). In addition, the band will play Summerstage for FREE on Aug 16th with Dinosaur Jr and The Walkmen.
Saviours have also jumped on the previously discussed Kylesa tour, replacing Doomriders who can't make it due to Nate Newton's commitments with Converge (meaning, their impending tour with Mastodon & High On Fire):
"We've gotten alot of messages regarding our dropping off of the Kylesa tour and yes....unfortuately the news is true. Due to scheduling issues between Doomriders and Nate's other band, Converge, we had to pull out of the tour. Our deepest apologies go out to our friends in Kylesa, and also to anyone who had planned on coming to see us play on the tour. We love Kylesa, and we love our brothers in Saviours who have taken our spot on the tour and encourage everyone to go to these shows and have a blast! It's going to be a great tour and we're all very sad that we won't be a part of it. We will hopefully be announcing some exciting tour plans for later in the year very soon. We're sorry everyone! We'll see you next time!" -[Lambgoat]Saviours new album, Accelerated Living, is due out on CD and 2LP via Kemado on 10/27. All dates below...

The last time we saw Bay Area badasses Saviours it was at The Charleston. This time the band has scheduled TWO NYC area shows, both with very different but kickass lineups. First up, Saviours are scheduled to take on Union Pool with Children and BV faves Sourvein on July 29th! Tickets are on sale. Then two weeks later on Aug 12th, Saviours will round out a very odd but nonetheless amazing bill with Dinosaur Jr and The Walkmen at Summerstage.
Saviours recently completed production on their follow-up to Into Abaddon, are gearing up to hit the road with Skeletonwitch and Trap Them, and are releasing a series of seven-inches. One of those tracks, "Acid Hand", is downloadable above. Full tour dates are below.
