Atriarch played Saint Vitus on 11/17 with support from Conneticut doomers and tourmates Sea of Bones along with local black metal crew Yellow Eyes. The show was the first venture into the tri-state area for the Northwestern doomy gothic black metal crew, and despite the fierce competition around town for the attention of metalheads (Dysrhythmia - pics here, and Deiphago), the band played like it was to a arena filled with screaming fans. Excellent set from this crew which, was captured to video. Watch that, with more pictures from the show, below...
Deathrock/doom crew Atriarch are touring their way Eastward on the strength of recent splits with Alaric and a spanking new LP, Ritual Of Passing, due via Profound Lore this fall. Stream the new track "Altars" below. The Pacific Northwest quartet, which features members of Graves At Sea, Trees, Final Conflict and more, will fit in East Coast dates on their travels, logging a date in NYC at Saint Vitus on 11/17 with Sea of Bones and Yellow Eyes (who recently played Acheron). Tickets are on sale.
Full tour schedule for Atriarch is below, along with the flyer and that new song stream.
The Bell Witch @ Acheron, 10/16/2012
Recent Profound Lore signees The Bell Witch (members of Samothrace) had copies of their new CD, Longing, when they rolled into Acheron last night (10/16) as part of the band's US tour. The show, which also featured an appearance from Yellow Eyes, was the band's first NYC showing, and the two-piece ripped a set of melodic, melancholic doom via drums and a six-string bass. Yellow Eyes, this time a three-piece due to a cycling injury to their bassist, played tight black metal with touches of melody peppered throughout.
More pictures from the show are below, and The Bell Witch's tour soldiers on with a show in Baltimore tonight (10/17).

As mentioned before, Minnesota black metal team False will hit Acheron on Saturday (9/8), flanked by Brooklyn's own Mortals, False's tourmates Bellow and the great Yellow Eyes. The show is False's only area date and a rare, one, so make it out if you can. Audio streams are below.
A list of all suggested shows for the next two weeks, as well as a few audio streams, are below. What did I miss?
Vattnet Viskar and Yellow Eyes teamed for a Broken Limbs Recordings showcase at Lit Lounge last night (5/14). Black metal was the theme of the evening, with Yellow Eyes shooting for Weakling/Drudkh-style grandiosity while Vattnet Viskar attacked similar influences with a distinctly punk rock ethos. Yellow Eyes, who were playing their first NYC show, were impressive, especially considering their minimal experience as a live unit, but Vattnet Viskar was downright venomous.
More pictures from the night are below, alongside streams from both of their recent releases.
Art for Old Man Gloom's No
Old Man Gloom will welcome a new LP NO via Hydra Head this year! The band, who is currently on tour and heading towards a decimation of Brooklyn this coming week, will have copies of the record at the merch table. Unfortunately, those who can't make it to the shows will have to wait until June 16th to snag a copy. Check out a teaser trailer for the release below.
Black metal crew Assymmetry will team with Gravfolluth for a rare show at The Acheron on May 12th. $8 gets you in. The band has two demo releases on Kuunpalvelus, a label run by members of the mighty Circle of Ouroboros, and you can stream some material from them below. May 12th is a busy night, but this is their only US appearance scheduled so far... its a doozy.
Noise and ambient meets powerviolence on Gas Chamber's new 7" The Modern Vision of the Erect Nightmare, out now via Nerve Altar. The record is currently streaming in full below and available for purchase via the label. Make sure you catch them when the band hits Chaos in Tejas this year (if you're heading down that way).
Vattnet Viskar and Yellow Eyes will team up for a Broken Limbs showcase at Lit Lounge on May 14th. The band, who seemingly plays Precious Metal monthly, recently released a well-received self-titled EP which available for stream below.
Mark your calendars for May 16th at Home Sweet Home, I'll be DJing alongside Glenn from Cult of Youth and Zach from Freshkills as part of Wierd Wednesdays. The show is part of a Toxic State/Katorga Works event that will feature appearances from Massachusetts' own Cleansing Wave and Brooklyn's Nomad. More details are available on the Facebook event. My involvement aside, it's a hell of a night of punk rock.
