Eyehategod aboard a Rocks Off Boat Cruise, Oct 2009 (more by Chloe Rice)
Eyehategod

Hands down, one of the most legendary shows of the past five years was the Rocks Off concert featuring Eyehategod, Pig Destroyer, Goatwhore and more on a boat. If you missed it, check out pictures from that insane show in 2009. Now, InvisibleOranges is stoked to present Eyehategod's return to the seas, this time on September 15 with the legendary Final Conflict, one of their first reunion shows on the East Coast! Tickets are on sale so get yours now. They will disappear.

The show is one of a few in celebration of 25 years of southern discomfort or, the anniversary of the birth of nihilistic sludge gods Eyehategod. All tour dates are listed, along with a video, below.

Goblin

Never say never. A band that I thought I personally would never be able to see in my lifetime was Italian horror-prog band Goblin.

Formed in 1972, Goblin's roots lie in several other Italian prog-rock bands of the time... the group initially dubbed itself the Cherry Five and played British-style progressive rock in the vein of Yes, Genesis, and ELP. They signed with the Italian Cinevox label, and issued a self-titled debut in 1975, which performed disappointingly. However, it caught the ear of film director Dario Argento, who contacted Cinevox after growing dissatisfied with the jazzy work being done on his Profondo Rosso by composer Giorgio Gaslini. the Cherry Five rechristened themselves Goblin (in keeping with the horror movie theme), kept a small portion of Gaslini's work, and completely redid the remainder of the score in a heavier, harder-rocking style. The results helped make the film a hit, and the soundtrack album topped the Italian charts... [Argento] put Goblin to work creating a new soundtrack; this time, he shot the film only after hearing the music. The result, 1977's Suspiria, became Goblin's most acclaimed work, combining the band's heavy riffing and busy drum work with more eerie electronics than ever before, plus sinister, experimental vocal effects. The film and soundtrack were both hits once again, and the Goblin/Argento partnership was firmly established -[Allmusic]
That all changed today when the previously discussed Housecore Horror Film Festival announced that Goblin's Maurizio Guarini and Claudio Simonetti will perform a live score of the classic film Suspiria during the Austin, TX festival! The appearance, which will occur at Emo's between October 25-27, is the band's first-ever performance in the U.S. The appearance will join the previously announced performers Down, Crowbar, Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals, EyeHateGod, Warbeast and Void ov Voices (aka Attila of Mayhem), who will perform "a live soundtrack for The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari." Tickets are on sale.

Head below for the trailer for the legendary Suspiria.

Corrections House at Saint Vitus in January (more by Caroline Harrison)
Corrections House

Corrections House, featuring an all-star lineup of Scott Kelly (Neurosis), Mike IX Williams (Eyehategod), Sanford Parker (no longer Nachtmystium) and Bruce Lamont (Yakuza, Bloodiest), have a new video for "Grin With a Purpose" the A-Side of a 7" that includes the previously discussed "Hoax the System" track which also spawned a video. The 7" is currently available via War Crime Recordings, and will be a taste for what's to come... a planned full length due at the end of the year.

So far touring is light for Corrections House in 2013, but the band is planning a trip to the EU in December, with North American dates to follow in the new year. The tour will be their second trek, following their recent jaunt in January.

Check out both Corrections House videos below.

Eyehategod at Saint Vitus, Dec 2012 (more by Fred Pessaro // BBG)
Eyehategod

As discussed, Corrections House is a supergroup of sorts, comprised of Scott Kelly (of Neurosis), Mike IX Williams (Eyehategod), Sanford Parker (producer/engineer, Nachmystium/Minsk) and Bruce Lamont (Yakuza, Bloodiest, etc). The upcoming tour will feature "solo sets of spoken word, acoustic and experimental music with an end times collaboration to close out the night." What we didn't know was that recorded material was also on the way...

Corrections House have produced a video for "Hoax the System," a new track that will appear on a forthcoming 7" on War Crime Records, a collaborative effort between Parker and Lamont. The flip will feature a second track, "Grin With A Purpose," though no additional recordings have been reported. Fingers crossed.

In the meantime, swoop below for a look at the new video and all tour dates. And if you want to see it live, Corrections House hits Saint Vitus on Jan 21 (tickets).

In related news, Neurosis plays a sold-out Brooklyn Masonic Temple on Saturday, the same day as the mega-Catharsis/Deathcycle/Gehenna/Withdrawal show at The Acheron (tickets).

Video and a list of tour dates are below.

Mike of Eyehategod at Saint Vitus, Nov 2012 (more by Lukas Hodge)
Corrections House

Corrections House is a new band of the "supergroup" persuasion, featuring Scott Kelly of Neurosis, Mike IX Williams of Eyehategod, Sanford Parker of Nachtmystium, and Bruce Lamont of Yakuza/Bloodiest. Little is known about what this stellar lineup has conjured together yet, but you can look forward to a few live performances in the US soon. Those include a stop in Brooklyn at Saint Vitus on Jan 21. Tickets are on sale.

Don't forget that Neurosis also announced tour dates recently, including their first NYC appearance in five years. The band also recently added a few new ones as well, including at Union Transfer in Philadelphia on 1/20. Dates are below.

Both Eyehategod and Nachtmystium performed at St. Vitus in November, though Sanford was not on board as a member of the Chicago black metal crew this time around. If you missed it, check out pictures of Nachtmystium HERE and shots from Eyehategod HERE and HERE.

Svarttjern at Inferno Festival
Svarttjern

Its been quite a ride for me personally and as a photographer in 2012. I've had the distinct honor to cover some of my favorite bands in the world this year, including legends and favorites that vary as widely as Morrissey (HERE), New Order (HERE), Autopsy (HERE and HERE), Godflesh (HERE), Dead Can Dance (HERE), Swans (HERE), Jesus & Mary Chain (HERE), Chain of Strength (HERE) and many many more.

But I'm also very interested in the new, and 2012 afforded me the ability to shoot great younger bands like Terrible Feelings (HERE), Whitehorse (HERE), White Lung (HERE), Milk Music (HERE), Nude Beach (HERE) and loads more. Its been a great year, and though I still have some shooting left in the tank for 2012, here are my favorites as of right now along with brief blurbs on why . We'll start with the above photo....

Eyehategod

Eyehategod

Eyehategod completed their two-night stay at Saint Vitus last night (11/28) tagging support from Villains, Mortals and new band White Widows . Pictures from the show adorn this post. As discussed, the band played a grip of new material which they announced would be recorded when they returned home from tour. No word as to the home/release date for the new EHG material, but you can check out the setlist from the show below. If you missed it, check out pictures/review from night one HERE.

More pictures from Saint Vitus are below alongside the setlist. I split early from Eyehategod to head to WIERD to catch Pinkish Black, and pictures from that performance are HERE.

Eyehategod

"Hey Brooklyn... kill yourselves."

With those words, Eyehategod frontman Mike Williams described the band's first of two shows at Saint Vitus last night (11/27) in a nutshell. The air was thick last night not only with a mingling of body odors, but also with a slack-jawed, drooling rage that carried through each band's set--including Long Island's The Communion, who kicked off the night with a noise-laden, screeching set in the tradition of sludgy-grindcore.

Next up was the sludgier Brooklyn band, Clean Teeth, who peppered in the second major element of EHG, the heavy-because-I'm-so-miserable-I-can't-hold-my-head-up, similar to The Communion's homage to EHG's raw ferocity.

Then, rumor has it someone dosed the whole crowd with uppers as Magrudergrind took the stage. Compared to the other two openers, their set was blisteringly short, and whipped the crowd into a buzzing frenzy that ended with the launch of the night's first projectile--a full pint of beer, aimed at frontman Avi Kulawy's head right at the end of the band's set.

The anxiety buzz bled into the final set of the night. As Eyehategod took the stage to a chorus of approving grunts and played the first, sludgy chords of their set, bodies and beer cans flew willy nilly. Another pint glass narrowly missed the drummer's head. The stench of sweat, something in the vein of wet socks and warm beer was overwhelming. EHG, who were not only unfettered but comfortable in the scene before them, played for over an hour, stopping inbetween songs to taunt concertgoers and shout for beer (and water). At one point, Williams asked, "Does everyone feel alright?"

A resounding "NO!" echoed back. But that was alright. That was what they wanted--they wanted to feel bad, get covered in shit, bruise and get bruised in return. No one went (or will go tonight) to see EHG because they make you feel good. They went to have their misery shouted back in their faces, and know that, even if every other person in the audience acted like a total shithead (and most did), at least one person--one band--knew how badly they wanted to raise hell and burn the place to the ground.

Eyehategod will play again tonight at St. Vitus (11/28) with Villains, Mortals and White Widows. Tickets are still available. More pictures and video from last night's mayhem (though unfortunately none of The Communion) are below.

Eric Cutler of Autopsy
Maryland Death Fest

Bullet belts, flip flops, studded gauntlets, chicken suits... yep, its Maryland Deathfest time again. Though it was milder this week, in true MDF fashion the first of the four day Baltimore music festival (on 5/24) kicked off with high temperatures, humidity and unrelenting sun, making for a strong contrast to the pitch black indoor room at Sonar. Luckily, escape from the sun also meant catching some of the best heavy music out there.

The day started with sets by Extermination Angel and Die Pigeon Die, both of which I missed unfortunately, so the "opening" set by Needful Things was a fierce blast of grind that was a great perk-me-up for the rest of the day's activities. For the most part, a lot of the bands on Thursday I had seen in recent months: Eyehategod at A389 (dudes, please... we need new songs... the set is getting tired), Absu and Agalloch at Inferno, and Autopsy at Inferno and in Brooklyn. All delivered excellent, though familiar (to me) sets with the exception of Agalloch whose focus was on their earlier material (no Marrow of the Spirit here). Excellent way to cater to the crowd and make it special.

Of the remainder of the bands, Dying Fetus's death metal-slam style has never been my cup of tea but Rorschach... that's another story. Rorschach's unique noise/metal/hardcore sound was the clear winner for favorite set of the day for me, coming out with unmatched energy and playing their cover of King Crimson's "21st Century Schizoid Man" as well as material from their Protestant/Remain Sedate release (which was available in exclusive colors just for this show)(wow). I remember being floored when I saw them at Santos and The Charleston way back when, but this might have been their best set yet. I could watch them play forever, but I'm guessing there's a short window of time left for this band... don't miss them. Rorschach pictures are HERE.

More pictures from Day 1 at Maryland Deathfest including Autopsy's setlist are below.

Fun Fun Fun Fest

My final day at Fun Fun Fun Fest 2011 ran the gamut from 90s-indie-worshippers Lemuria to the poppy-hardcore of Kid Dynamite, the Prince-clad hardcore of Ceremony to the glitchy dance of Flying Lotus, and the operatic/enigmatic Austra to the great Slayer. Of the bands that I was not familar with prior to that day (namely OBN IIIs and Les Butcherettes) OBN IIIs set was my favorite; high energy punk/garage was an excellent way to turbo-charge the day. Le Butcherettes were no slouches though, playing fun and spazzy garage-punk featuring the endlessly watachlbe Teri Gender Bender up front and surprise guest Omar Rodriguez-Lopez on bass.

I'll save the "Fun Fun Fun" knee-slapper for pretty much every single band's pre/intra-show banter ("Are you having fun? Are you having Fun Fun Fun?") but yes, Fun Fun Fun Fest lives up to its name.

Previously posted pictures are here: day 1 & day 2, and day 1 & day 2.

More pictures from day three including shots of Lemuria, Le Butcherettes, OBN IIIs, Davila 666, Ceremony, Nobunny, Kid Dynamite, Zero Boys, Eyehategod, Austra, Ted Leo & The Pharmacists, Cannibal Corpse, Boris, Del The Funkee Homosapien, Slayer, Blonde Redhead, and much more, below...

Hull @ Mercury Lounge
Hull

Hull is currently on the road with The Fucking Wrath, and is also scheduled to play a Fun Fun Fun Fest Nite show in Austin with Toxic Holocaust and Pushmen at Red 7 on 11/3.

Hull have also been added to the previously mentioned Doomriders / Eyehategod show on December 4th at Europa with Knight Terror.

Hull recently played Mercury Lounge with Rwake as part of their Record Release celebration, and Union Pool as part of the Tee Pee CMJ Showcase. Time Out reports on CMJ:

By my count, my CMJ 2011 consisted of 13 metal sets. Not every one was great, but what impressed me overall was the willingness many of the bands displayed to cut across the genre's constrictive sub-borders. Locals Raspberry Bulbs and Tombs--whom I caught, respectively, at Saint Vitus on Tuesday and on Rock Off's East River-faring Jewel on Saturday--each drew on black metal; but while the former spiked the style with grimy punk, the latter took a more expansive and emotive path. Likewise, Norway's Kvelertak (who also played the Jewel) juxtaposed dire metalcore breakdowns with primitive, almost Queens of the Stone Age-ish rock & roll. Best of all, though, was Hull, a local quintet that toggled gracefully between doom and thrash stylings. On Friday night at Union Pool, the band's riffs, ground out by a trio of heavy-bearded six-stringers, rolled forth from the stage like massive boulders, and its stage presence oozed conviction; these were players who had clearly pored over everything from Sabbath to Mastodon, synthesizing their research into epic treatises on the nature of heavy. --Hank Shteamer
Here is a second set of pictures from Hull's Mercury Lounge show. They continue below...
