Sutekh Hexen at Saint Vitus, 9/4/2012
Black metal-ambient-noise terrorists Sutekh Hexen completed a round of dates with a show at Hopscotch over the weekend, but hit NYC at Saint Vitus on September 4 as part of a larger East Coast tour. It was here that the trio filled the back room with billowing smoke, droning dread and black metal riffs. Though the show was a small one, the music and atmosphere made the room feel claustrophobic and suffocating.
Supporting Sutekh Hexen was Rust Worship, Oneirogen and Andrew Hock of Castevet. Pictures of all bands and video of Sutekh Hexen, Oneirogen and Andrew Hock are below.
Experimental black metal/noise crew Sutekh Hexen (recently profiled here) are heading out on tour which includes a stop at the Hopscotch festival and will hit NYC at Saint Vitus on September 4 with support form High Aura'd, Oneirogen and Andrew Hock (of Castevet). Tickets are on sale.

The Hopscotch festival in Raleigh, North Carolina will celebrate its third year from Sept. 6-8, 2012 in downtown Raleigh, with 175 bands in 15 venues. The initial lineup, released today, runs the gamut from traditional indie favorites to punk to noise music to hip hop to noisy black metal and all stops in between, featuring performances from Built to Spill, sunn 0))), The Roots, The Jesus & Mary Chain (who played SXSW), Liars (who have a show coming up at Webster Hall), Baroness, Deerhoof, Death Grips (who play NYC soon and have new material on the way), Danny Brown (who was at Coachella and plays Prospect Park soon), Pallbearer (who play an exclusive East Coast Show soon), Screaming Females (who recently played NYC and are on tour now), Thee Oh Sees, The Spits (who just played NYC twice), Tenement, The Mountain Goats (two sets, one of which will be an all metal-covers set!) and so many more.

Tickets are on sale. The full lineup and flyer (update: and a few more announced J&MC dates) are below...
Handmade Birds will release the new LP from Sutekh Hexen, a shadowy black metal collective that delves into dark ambient, drone, harsh noise, and any other aural method hellbent on nihilism and destruction. Larvae is the follow-up to their harrowing Luciform from last year and is currently available on CD via the label. Larvae, which features the mastering work of James Plotkin, is anchored by the contributions of Scott Miller (ex-Cattle Decapitation), visual artist Kevin Gan Yuen, Dwid Hellion (Integrity), Lee Camfield, and Thomas Rodahl Dedekamm. Yuen and Dwid are co-conspirators on the frightening art as well.
In celebration (or is it damnation?) of Larvae, you can stream a new track at Pitchfork and another from the LP ("Lead Us In Warfare") below, alongside some prior works of auditory terror and the artwork...
