Nachtmystium at The Studio at Webster Hall, Sept 2010 (more by Markus Shaffer)
Nachtmystium

"Nachtmystium, regretfully, has to reschedule its upcoming US tour due to an unavoidable family emergency. The band (and Nachtmystium co-horts Lord Mantis) will still be able to perform the last four dates of the tour on the east coast, but all other dates will be rescheduled for the near future. Nachtmystium apologizes to all the fans and promoters as this was an unavoidable circumstance and we wish that things were different. However, we are beyond excited to come play for you soon. To those fans who will still be able to see us in November, we can't wait to destroy your eardrums. See you soon!"
As stated above, Nachtmystium's tour has shrunk considerably, but what it doesnt mention is the loss of Canadian black metal terrorist Weapon from the bill as well. Though the bulk of the dates are cancelled, Saint Vitus on 11/19 is still a go and now with Jarboe, Bruce Lamont and Batillus. Tickets are still available.

In the meantime you can also catch both Bruce Lamont AND Batillus this weekend, though at different shows. The latter will perform at 285 Kent as part of the Show No Mercy showcase while the former will be on stage as part of Yakuza's exclusive NYC showing at Saint Vitus (aka the BV-BBG showcase). Tickets for the latter show are still available or use your CMJ badge (a limited number allowed in). Entry includes PBR, Sailor Jerry's and Mercy drink while supplies last.

All tour dates and the BV-BBG showcase flyer is below.

Weapon at Rites of Darkness 2011 (more by Fred Pessaro // BBG)
Weapon

Canadian black metal horde Weapon have made a few major transitions of late, moving from a staunchly independent black metal label (The Ajna Offensive) to one of the bigger labels in the genre (Relapse) and taking their show from recording-only to full-on tour mode. The occasion? The release of their third LP, Embers and Revelations, due on October 9th. Stream the new song "Vanguard Of The Morning Star," which we're premiering below, and you can order your copy at Relapse.

Weapon see these transitions as opportunites (as they should) and as such, we cornered the creative mind behind Weapon, Vetis Monarch, for a few interview questions which you can read below.

Don't forget that Weapon will be in NYC on 11/19 at Saint Vitus with Nachtmystium and Jarboe. Tickets are still available.

Song stream and Q&A are below.

Marduk
Marduk

The Serpent Sermon tour kicked off over the weekend, featuring a fearsome foursome of Marduk, 1349, Withered and Weapon, having swung through NYC on June 3rd, hitting Music Hall of Williamsburg with Mutant Supremacy. More pictures from that unholy Sunday are below.

Weapon, who recently signed to Relapse for their follow-up to 2010's From The Devil's Tomb, have completed recording for their new LP and will release it this fall. Marduk also has a new album, Serpent Sermon, which is currently out now via Century Media Records. But what's really making the rounds about Marduk is Morgan 'Evil' Steinmeyer Håkansson claim to own part of the skull of legendary Mayhem vocalist Dead.

"I got it way back, right after he died. Back in those days they [Mayhem] were living in a house and didn't have the best financial aspects, so they didn't even have a telephone. So I remember I was celebrating New Year's in 1991 with Dead back home in Sweden. Then he got back, he wrote one letter [to me], then someone told me he's killed himself."

Morgan continued, "So I wrote a letter [to Mayhem] and then I got the reply back from the guitar player [Euronymous] -- "Well he just shot himself and here's a piece of his skull." It was a shotgun, you know? So [he also sent me] two pieces of the lead and a piece of the wet brain. I've still got it. I keep it well protected."

We asked Morgan who else Euronymous had sent tokens from Dead's suicide to. "He sent it to all these former comrades of Dead," he said with an innocent smile, making it clear that he would not reveal any other names. "A few of them. There were not that many people ... maybe five." -[Loudwire]

I guess congrats are in order? More pictures from the Music Hall of Williamsburg show are below.

Inquisition at MDF (more by BBG)

"This is Danny, the promoter for Rites of Darkness. I understand people have been getting frustrated with lack of news so I personally apologize for that. We have gone through a rash of cancellations which were beyond our control.. Paypal froze the Festival's account which caused delayed flights for months. By the time Paypal decided to release our account flights escalated beyond our set budget. So the show is NOT cancelled by any means but the following bands will not be performing: Root, Akitsa, Interment, Demonical, Valkyrja, Dead Congregation, Hour of 13, and Strid"
Rites of Darkness, the San Antonio festival in December that lined up an impressive slate of bands from around the world and many notable exclusives, has suffered a rash of cancellations (including Mortuary Drape), many of which were headlining bands.

The festival has remained silent about the situation for close to two weeks, but finally updated festival-goers today. Their message, excerpted above and available in full below, explains the situation, but neglects to mention that Pagan Altar also cancelled (they were slated for a two hour set) and that Zemial cancelled too. Another band that is currently in flux, Stargazer, is reportedly without flights (the band is from Australia) at the moment. The listing is missing General Surgery, and no announcement has been made about the pre-fest which includes France's Hell Militia. Previously announced cancellations include Ondskapt, Urfaust, Behexen, and Sargeist. RoD has added new Profound Lore signees Pallbearer.

Reminder: two RoD bands, Inquisition and Disma, are scheduled to play The Studio at Webster Hall on 12/2 with Agrath. Tickets are still available.

UPDATE: Both Zemial and Pagan Altar are reconsidering their appearances. Statements from both are below.

UPDATED AGAIN: Disma, Funebrarum, Evoken, and Oak have all cancelled their appearances.

The most recent Rites of Darkness statement and the current lineup is below.

Inquisition at Maryland Deathfest (more by BBG)
Inquisition

NYC's Studio at Webster Hall will soon host a trifecta of black metal greatness! Inquisition will headline the venue on December 2nd with a rare appearance from Mortuary Drape and Negative Plane. Tickets are on sale.

Italy's Mortuary Drape and Inquisition will then tour their way to Rites of Darkness 3 in San Antonio, Texas where they'll join the newly added Disma, but NOT Urfaust:

URFAUST vs RITES OF DARKNESS III

URFAUST is very sad to announce that we have to cancel our Intoxication Ritual at Rites of Darkness III in Texas, USA.
Our last Alcoholic Rites on US soil where splenditory, so this is just fucked up...
Nothing more to say about this, we hope to return to the USA and Rites of Darkness in 2012!
All hail the madness!
Cheers,
Ix & Vrdrbr on behalf of Urfaust

Three day passes for Rites of Darkness 3 are on sale. Pictures from Urfaust's recent Brooklyn show HERE.
