Vektor at Saint Vitus last night (more by Fred Pessaro // BBG)
Vektor

Technical thrash crew Vektor kicked off a round of dates with an appearance at Saint Vitus in Brooklyn last night (Feb 14). The band was joined by 15-string brutality from Behold... The Arctopus, the lackluster Vaporizer, and discordant death-metal headscratchers Pyrrhon. Though there were many thrash fans at Best Buy to catch Testament/Overkill across town and still others sharing Valentine's Day with their loved one, Saint Vitus had an impressive number of fans for a Thursday night (insert tired glory hole joke here).

Check out more pictures and some video from the anti-Valentine's Day at Invisible Oranges.

Vektor will expertly unleash their razor-sharp progressive thrash on the crowds at Saint Vitus on a special Valentines Day (2/14), when they team with Behold... the Arctopus for a show at the venue. Tickets are on sale. The show is one of only a few dates scheduled for the now-Philadelphia thrash crew, check out all other dates below.

Brutal Truth, Total Fucking Destruction, Psychic Limb and one band still TBA will play Saint Vitus on March 16. Tickets are on sale. The dates are the only shows scheduled for all three presently.

"Barney" Greenway of Napalm Death @ Gramercy Theatre, 10/27/2012
Napalm Death

Grindcore pioneers Napalm Death played Gramercy Theatre on 10/27 with party-hearty thrashers Municipal Waste, death metal gore freaks Exhumed, and technical-metal favorites Vektor. Though Napalm's set was plagued with technical difficulties, the remainder of the bill delivered solid sets that got the crowd moving at the sold-out show. Pictures from the mosh/stage-dive-tastic event on Saturday adorn this post.

The show was one of three excellent heavy shows that Saturday before the storm, with the other two being Tombs/-16-/Serpentine Path/Pyrrhon at Saint Vitus and Boston Strangler/Perdition/Crazy Spirit/Waste Management/Prisoner Abuse at Acheron.

The tour soldiers on, with Napalm Death and Municipal Waste also scheduled for a date with Fun Fun Fun Fest. More pic from Gramercy are below.

Napalm Death at Maryland Deathfest 2012 (more by Fred Pessaro // BBG)
Napalm Death

Municipal Waste, Napalm Death and Exhumed will team up for a US tour together (!), calling on a rotating support cast of Vektor (who just played Saint Vitus), Dayglo Abortions, Attitude Adjustment, Speedwolf, Repulsion (who will play POTR East) and Dwarves.

Look for them to hit Fun Fun Fun Fest along the way, and NYC is in the crosshairs for this mammoth tour, hitting Gramercy Theater on October 27 with Vektor on board as support. Tickets are on sale, and tour flyer  and all listed tour dates are at the bottom of this post.

Municipal Waste released The Fatal Feast earlier this year, while Napalm Death released Utilitarian. I interviewed "Barney" of Napalm Death earlier this year if you missed it as well.

Meanwhile, Blag Dahlia of Dwarves will be in NYC very soon.

All dates and the MWaste tour flyer are below.

Vektor, ripping at Saint Vitus 8/12/2012
Vektor

I am not, nor have I ever been, the biggest proponent of the Thrash Metal resurgence. Many of the bands that have come from this scene worship at the altar of some of the greats of the genre but barely have anything to add, instead settling for rehashed riffs that don't move the genre forward. Looking backward is cool, but looking backward and reinterpretting the past is much cooler. Vektor certainly does the latter.

The now-Philadelphia crew headlined Saint Vitus last night (8/12), joined only by support from Brooklyn's own Bezoar in the wake of a last minute cancellation by Soon. Vektor's set touched on favorites like Voivod, Kreator, Sodom and more during their approximately 90 minute set, with the crowd thrashing about and a moshpit parting the audience waters. I see good things for this band.

Bezoar, in their record-setting eleventh appearance at Saint Vitus, also ripped, albeit in an entirely different gothic-doom-meets-psychedelia way.

Pictures from Saint Vitus last night are below.

Gehenna at A389 2012 (more by Fred Pessaro // BBG)
Gehenna

For those of you not at This is Hardcore this weekend, tonight's can't miss show at Acheron (8/10) will feature Gehenna, the California crew that hasn't blessed NYC since sharing the stage with Catharsis at CBGB's in 1997 (their set was eventually turned into the Eat, Fight, Fuck. Live At CBGB's split with their tourmates). The band will be joined by North Carolinian gods of hellfire hardcore Young and In The Way, death-doom rollers Ilsa, California's Skin like Iron and NYC troublemakers Psychic Limb. $10 gets you in.

The rest of the weekend has similarly interesting appearances. Saturday (8/11) will see a reunion of Shriner at Gramercy, though across town Tommy's Tavern will host Neo Cons (ex-86 Mentality) along with Swaath, Correspondences and more. And make sure and end your weekend with an appearance from prog-thrash favorites Vektor, who will hit Saint Vitus on Sunday
(8/12, tickets) along with Bezoar (who have a new-ish album) and Soon.

Satan's Satyrs will join Nightbitch, Balam and Syphilitic Lust for a show at Acheron on August 24. Flyer for the show is below. For those unfamiliar with the ripping styles of SS, stream some material below as well!

In other news, the previously discussed Red Fang/Black Tusk tour is a reality, and you can check out all dates below. The band play on Bowery Ballroom on November 11 (tickets) and Saint Vitus on November 12 (tickets).

All suggested shows for the next two weeks are below. What did I miss?
