Plenty of great metal, hardcore and other heavy shows in NYC are getting announced all the time. We don't get a chance to write about all of them, so here's a roundup of some recently-announced stuff coming up:
California old school-style death metallers Gravehill are playing shows in support of last year's Death Curse, including NYC on August 12 at the Acheron. It's a good lineup all around with their Dark Descent labelmates Ghoulgotha and Horrendous, plus Brooklyn locals Mutant Supremacy. Tickets are on sale. Stream Death Curse below.
Long-running death/thrashers Deceased are still active and will celebrate their 30th anniversary with a NYC show on November 14 at Saint VItus. Opening that show will be Bat, Iron Force and Grey Skies Fallen. Tickets are on sale now.
Crust supergroup Severed Head of State (with members of World Burns To Death, Tragedy, J Church and more) come to NYC on July 30 at the Acheron with Razorheads and Indignation. Tickets are on sale.
Local black metal faves Krallice appear to be hinting at a new album on their Facebook. While details on that aren't confirmed, a live show for July 27 at the Acheron is. Radiation Blackbody and Feast of the Epiphany open. Tickets are on sale.
The doom and gloom of Planning for Burial returns to the stage on July 24 at Grand Victory with Iron Gag and Prostitution. Tickets are on sale.
Mexican black metal veterans Xibalba Itzaes (previously known as Xibalba, but changed to Xibalba Itzaes in 2010 to avoid confusion with the California hardcore band Xibalba) have been at it since the early '90s and will play their first-ever NYC show on Halloween at the Acheron. Opening is Fantom Warrior and Occult Burial. Tickets for what sounds like a pretty spooky Halloween are on sale now.
Die Choking are a new-ish Philly grindcore band with members of Total Fucking Destruction and Cop Problem. They debuted last year with two EPs, titled I and II, and you can stream both in all their brutal rapid-fast glory below. They're coming to NYC for a show on July 29 at Saint Vitus with Blänk, Sangharsha, Ides and Hounds. Tickets are on sale.
Sangharsha also play a Nepal benefit a bit sooner at Acheron on July 15 with Tiger Flowers, Skullshitter and Brute Mukti (tickets).
Boston black metal/punk blenders Human Bodies will descend upon NYC on July 21 at Acheron with One Master, Syphilitic Lust and Salo (tickets). Earlier this year, they put out the MMXIII-MMXIV, which compiles last year's No Life with 2013's MMXIII demo and includes two previously unreleased tracks. It's raw, eerie, and surprisingly kinda catchy. Stream it in full below.
Anthrax's Scott Ian is spending a lot of time at Saint VItus this year. His band Motor Sister played there in February, and now he's set to return for spoken word shows on August 4 and 6. Tickets for both are available. Scott's also taking part in the NYC performance of The Doomstar Requiem, the metal opera (or "Klok-Opera") from the Metalocalypse/Dethklok guy, Brendon Small. Tickets are available for that too.
Tucson sludge band Godhunter are making their way to NYC for a show on August 13 at Saint Vitus with Destroyer of Light and Immortal Bird. Tickets are on sale now. They released their debut album, City of Dust, last year. You can stream that below.

Vitus is with Hemdale, Stapled Shut, Infernal Stronghold and Mother Brain; and Stapled Shut also play the Silent Barn show, as do Skullshitter and NARC. Flyer for both shows, and a stream of their 1996 debut LP, below...
Holy Ghost! in Williamsburg Park in 2013 (more by PSquared)
You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...
Frankie Cosmos @ MoMA
Frankie Cosmos combines the twee pop of Beat Happening with the anti-folk of Moldy Peaches for a blend that works very well. She's a regular in NYC DIY venues, but this evening's show in MoMA's gorgeous courtyard should be a special one.
Holy Ghost!, Kim Ann Foxman, Dave P @ House of Vans
It's the last free Vans House Party of the summer tonight, and the parties will go out in style with the addictive dance pop of Holy Ghost!.
Pretty and Nice, Jacksie, Adult Dude, Denizen @ Glasslands
Pretty and Nice are unfortunately going on indefinite hiatus this year after being a band for nine years, but before that they've got a new EP out this week which continues their knack for catchy pop. And they've got some fairwell shows including tonight's so see them while you can. Local indie rockers Adult Dude are worth catching tonight too.
Twin Peaks, The Lemons @ Baby's All Right
Chicago's Twin Peaks make fun, summery garage rock not unlike their pals in The Orwells. Tonight's their second of two NYC shows on their tour with The Lemons, whose catchy lo-fi pop is worth showing up for.
LODRO, Waltz, Electroputas, Ora Iso @ Death By Audio
Having put the wraps on their debut album (due sometime soon TBA) and a tour with DIIV, smoldering and bluesy LODRO should be well rehearsed and maybe armed with some new tunes. Waltz, meanwhile, have their amps set on Despair with some serious Birthday Party style melodrama.
Woodsman, Cloudland Canyon, Psychic Reality, Seabat, Velvet Zombie @ Palisades
The recently-opened Bushwick venue Palisades has very quickly become a hot spot for small shows, and tonight they'll host the first show in their new "Palisades Presents" series. The show will feature a few different types of ambient music from the guitar/loop pedal of Velvet Zombie, to the synthy Seabat, more synths (and vocals) from Psychic Reality, and finally a special collaborative set from Woodsman and Cloudland Canyon. Should be a cool night. Woodsman recently put out a new single that you can hear below.
New Myths, Skymatic, Two Seconds to Midnight, Little Anchor, Tutlie @ Pianos
Brooklyn synthpop trio New Myths will release their debut album this fall. Before that happens, they're doing an August residency at Pianos, and this is your second of four chances to see them.
Weeknight, Boot Blacks, Youth Worship @ Rough Trade
If you dig the moodier side of The Raveonettes, you'll probably be into spending an evening with Weeknight's desolate highway synth-n-twang sound. They're matched with two bands who probably also wear a lot of black.
Jamie Kilstein, Chris Gethard, Matty Blake @ Union Hall
Tonight at Union Hall it's a live recording of the 'Tell the Bartender' show with stories from guests Jamie Kilstein (Citizen Radio, 'Conan') and the always-entertaining Chris Gethard, plus an appearance from Matty Blake ('30 Rock,' 'Orange is the New Black').
Sete Star Sept, The Brood, Skullshitter @ Acheron
Sete Star Sept are an unhinged noisecore duo from Japan, laying waste with just drums and bass.
Dee Dee (from Dum Dum Girls) @ Housing Works Bookstore Cafe
Pitchfork celebrates Issue 3 of their print edition The Pitchfork Review tonight, featuring readings from some of the writers and a solo set from Dum Dum Girls' singer, Dee Dee.
For all of tonight's shows, and tomorrow's, check out our NYC concert calendar.

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.
by Fred Pessaro // BBG
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.
