Deicide at Gramercy Theatre, 2012 (more by Jonathan McPhail)
Deicide, the grand-daddies of death metal controversy, are heading back out on the road with Septicflesh, Abysmal Dawn, Carach Angren, and no strangers to backlash themselves, Inquisition. The tour heads out in the beginning of October and will drop in to cities such as Chicago, Seattle, and Austin. On October 9, they'll swing in to NYC's Gramercy Theatre. Tickets will be on sale soon via Ticketmaster. The complete list of dates appears below.
Deicide released album number 11, In the Minds of Evil, in 2013. (They also boarded the friendship roller coaster with Broken Hope.) In the early '90s, bassist/double-tracked screamer Glen Benton was a lighting rod due to his alleged satanism and, of course, the upside-down cross burnt into his forehead. Black metallers Inquisition are still licking their wounds after getting called out for racism earlier in the year. The other acts have a clearer conscience: The Lovecraftian Septicflesh's only point of contention is their glossy production. They released Titan back in June. Relapse's ripping death metallers Abysmal Dawn will drop Obsolescence at the end of October. And Dutch symphonic black metallers Carach Angren cut the acclaimed Where the Corpses Sink Forever back in 2012.
All of the dates along with samples of the bands appear below...

Melechesh at Gramercy Theatre, 10/16/2012
Septicflesh, Krisiun, Melechesh, Ex Deo, Inquisition, and Fin'amor are currently touring the US together, and made a pit stop into Gramercy Theater on October 16 as part of the Conquerors of The World Tour. The show was Inquisition's latest round of dates in NYC after a two night stay at Saint Vitus in April.
More pics from Gramercy are below.
The full list of artists confirmed for the 2012 CMJ Music Marathon so far is below...
Inquisition at Saint Vitus (more by Wyatt Marshall)
Inquisition will hit the road as part of a package tour this fall, joining Septicflesh, Krisiun, Melechesh and Ex Deo. Kicking off in Toronto, the dates includes a pair of East Coast stops, including NYC at Gramercy Theater on October 16th. Ticketing info is forthcoming but you can keep checking Ticketmaster.
Inquisition is currently touring the EU, so if you're on that side of the pond, look out for them. Otherwise, look for that "Conquerors of The World Festival Tour" (with Melechesh/Septicflesh/etc, which ironically/hilariously mostly hits Canada) at the dates listed below.
Nader Sadek at Mayhem (more by Paul Birman)
Ever since the Mayhem show at Irving Plaza earlier this year, I've wondered about the shadowy costume figure that set up Atilla's stump/podium and mounted heads on spears before they took the stage. Turns out it was performance artist, and Mayhem stage designer, Nader Sadek, who will perform his new piece at Santos Party House on Saturday (11/21).
B'doun Wag'h (Faceless), provocatively incorporates Arabic design, Death Metal music, and Darfur activism. Musicians from the well-known metal bands Morbid Angel, Cryptopsy, Krallice, and Behold... the Arctopus played a specially commissioned composition on a stage featuring Middle Eastern elements that ambiguously resonate with the occult iconography of this underground music scene. Woodwork screens and geometric patterns that frame blistering guitars and frenetic drumming blur configurations of private and public, holy and profane, ritual restraint and impulsive aggression. [from Nader's bio]Tickets for the all ages B'doun Wag'h show are still available. Look for Sadek to be joined by Steve Tucker (ex-Morbid Angel), Flo Mounier (Cryptopsy), and Mike Lerner (Behold..The Arctopus).
Shining also recently announced their signing to Season of Mist, and will hit US shores in the new year with Behomoth and Septicflesh. That tour impacts Gramercy on 1/30/10. Get presale tickets here now, or wait until noon to get tickets here.
Full US Tour dates for that Behemoth/Shining/Septicflesh trek, as well as a few Nader Sadek videos and the flyer for the show are below.

Lords... and they're angry! Typocracy)
I bid you good day kind sir and m'lady! May I also say Fuck All Y'all Motherfuckers! That is definitely one album that I have had on blast all this week... the new record by spazzy Louisville hardcore freaks, Lords! Check out "Blasphemy Act" from Fuck All Y'all... currently streaming over at their myspace. Of course it isn't all gravy for dem Kentucky boys. Let's cut to the chase:
Matt Jaha will not be playing bass in the band anymore, and rather than cancel the upcoming tour Eric and I decided to do it as a two piece...I just get some more amps to make up for the bass...Check out the long version for a tale that includes flailing fists, and flying guitar cabinets. The band is searching for a suitable replacement who must "be able to play the songs". Sounds reasonable. Best of luck, my dudes.
The mighty Anaal Nathrakh have finished writing their new album, the follow-up to the critically-lauded Hell is Empty, and All the Devils are Here from 2007! Mick Kenney is currently shaping the songs in the studio and hopes to have V.I.T.R.I.O.L.'s vocals done in February for an album release in June of 2009...
Deathwish has signed one of my favorite crusty European bands, Victims! Look for the band to re-release Killer on Deathwish later this year.
As we discussed earlier, Jarboe dropped Mahakali while Early Man dropped Beware The Circling Fin on The End Records. Want 'em both? Email BVCONTESTS@HOTMAIL.COM (subject: Early Jarboe) and win one of three sets of BOTH the Early Man EP on 10" vinyl and the Jarboe CD. Include your first and last name, winners will be contacted.
