Wold at the early Saint Vitus show (photo by Louis Caldarola)
After a sellout forced a second show, Merzbow and Wold teamed up pair of appearances at Saint Vitus on June 4th. Both bands were on their way back from appearances in Tampa for Scion Rock Fest, their only other dates aside from these Saint Vitus shows. Pictures from both the early and late appearances are below.
Merzbow was not solo at the Saint Vitus show, as the Japanese noise artist was joined by drummer Balazs Pandi who provided the insane fills to help punctuate Merzbow's maddening atonal attack. Check out video of both Merzbow/Balazs Pandi's set and Wold's set below, along with both sets of pics.
Merzbow at Le Poisson Rouge (more by Amanda Hatfield)
We already knew that Merzbow and Wold are confirmed for Scion Rock Fest 2012 (the former will collaborate with Balasz Panoi). Now comes word that the noise musicians will also make a stop over in NYC to play Saint Vitus on June 4th, a rare appearance for both and their only other US date so far. Tickets are on sale.
Check out all Merzbow dates and some streams below.
Church of Misery at Inferno Festival (more by BBG)
Scion Rock Fest have announced their first round of 2012 bands, including some very interesting and out-of-the-box choices. Among the announced so far include the impressive Repulsion, All Pigs Must Die, Merzbow, Sleep (who just played Roadburn), Church of Misery (them too, and they play NYC soon), and Oxbow, but the lineup also includes names like Terror, Psychic TV, and Cerebral Ballzy and more... bands that seem a bit out of the ordinary for a traditionally all-metal festival entering its fourth year. The show goes down on June 2nd across four venues in Tampa FL. As always, the show is free (with RSVP that opens on 4/20 at noon).
UPDATE: Full lineup has been released, check out the flyer and lineup below.
