Black Tusk at the Studio at Webster Hall, in May (more by Keith Marlowe)
East Williamsburg's metal and hardcore venue of record, the Acheron, is heading down to Mexico to host a two day festival, the first annual Acheron D-Fest on February 14 and 15 at Club Bombay in Mexico City. The festival will feature thrashers Toxic Holocaust and Black Tusk at the top of the nearly twenty band bill that includes psych punks Lecherous Gaze and death/grind specialists Skullshitter. If you're more into metal than love, this could be a good way to skip out on Valentine's Day. Head over to D-Fest's Facebook page for more details. Full lineup below.
Toxic Holocaust kick off their previously discussed tour with Ramming Speed in NJ on Saturday (11/16). That tour hits NYC at Saint Vitus on November 29 with In Defence. Tickets for that show are still available.
Toxic Holocaust's new album, Chemistry of Consciousness, is out now, and you can stream it, along with the video for "Acid Fuzz" below. They're also contributing the new track "Life Is a Lie" to Decibel's flexi-disc series, and you can stream that track here.
Also playing D-Fest is Trenchgrinder, who are playing with Eyehategod and Syphilitic Lust at the actual Acheron Saturday night (11/16). The show was recently officially announced after being a "secret," and tickets are still available, but they may not be for much longer considering Eyehategod sold out Saint Vitus last night (11/14).
Check out the full D-Fest lineup, along with all Toxic Holocaust dates, video and LP stream, below...
Skullshitter at The Acheron, June 2012 (more by Fred Pessaro)
Bushwick punk/metal venue The Acheron will host a FREE day show on Saturday (6/29), featuring BBQ and appearances from Hectors Pets, Blackout, Skullshitter, Zoned Out and Cold Ones.
In related news, a pair of great Brooklyn metal bands, the Bolt-Thrower-leaning Trenchgrinder and the deathgrind of Skullshitter, will team up for a split 7" due this summer. More details are on the way, but look for it via the bands and Desgraca Records.
BBQ Flyer and a couple videos are below.

Yob at Bell House, May 2012 (more by Fred Pessaro // BBG)
It has been a relatively slow year so far for metal shows, but that will change drastically by the end of this month. The first big pair of shows will go down at Saint Vitus on Feb 10 & 11 when Yob descends on Brooklyn for a two-night campaign of destruction by way of doom riffs. Tickets are still available for both, for now, so don't get left out in the cold. Or the warm. Or whatever the fuck the weather is that week.
You may have caught wind of the controversy surrounding Church Whip (mem Merchandise) and their infamous "Raping the East" tour. The band offer up an explanation of the tour's title below, and regardless of your thoughts on their definition of the word, the band's full length is available digitally for free and is quite the burner of Japanese-influenced hardcore. Download that here (vinyl via Vinyl Rites) if you so desire, and catch them with Syphilitic Lust & Skullshitter at Grand Victory on February 6th. Full tour schedule is below.
All EVILLIVE-approved shows for the next two weeks, a video flyer for Church Whip, and more is below. What did I miss?
Woe at Public Assembly, Sept 2011 (more by Fred Pessaro // BBG)
Woe has a new look thanks to the addition of drummer Shawn Eldridge (Disma) and the return of Grzesiek Czapla (Infernal Stronghold) to the fold. The band will hit the road for a weekend of East Coast dates in late January, including a stop at Saint Vitus on 1/31 with Anicon (who impressed at Saint Vitus in support of Von - pics) and Skullshitter. Tickets are on sale.

In addition to Saturday's show at Acheron (11/10), Japanese raw punks Zyanose will play a second show, this time with Anasazi, Neutron Rats, Osama Bin Laden Fan Club and Noise Masters Noise Matters at Lulu's in Greenpoint on Sunday (11/11). The show is free with donations accepted for the touring bands. As we told ya before, Zyanose's Acheron show will also feature Truncheons, Zatsuon, Nomad, Bortgang and Creeping Dose.
Cattle Decapitation will team with Grudges, Trenchgrinder and Skullshitter for a show at Saint Vitus on November 21. Tickets are on sale. Soon after the Saint Vitus show, look for Cattle Decap to hit the road with Dying Fetus. Tour dates are below.
And of course don't forget Clamfight teams with Kings Destroy and Black Pyramid for FREE show at Union Pool tonight (11/9). For all of you non-NYC-ers, catch the same bill at the tour dates below (see flyer).
All Evillive-approved shows for the next two weeks, plus a list of those Cattle Decap dates, are below.
Australia's Whitehorse headlined a rainy night at Acheron yesterday (6/12), joined by tourmates Batillus, NYC doom trio Unearthly Trance and death-grind newcomers Skullshitter (who I caught earlier this week, pictures). The Whitehorse/Batillus tour, which kicked off in early June at Chaos in Tejas, continues in support of a trio of splits for Whitehorse with their tourmates, as well as Cross and Hot Graves.
Without any sort of announcement, Unearthly Trance performed all of their second LP, In The Red, at the show. Video of that performance is still forthcoming, but for now check out video of Whitehorse and Batillus as well as pictures of all of the bands below.

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