Beaten to Death at by:Larm (photo by BBG)

Greetings from Europe. I'm currently in Norway for a doubleheader of Oslo events: the World Snowboarding Championships (complete with an Andrew WK-curated Norweigian version of 'Santos Party House') and the by:Larm Music Festival. You might remember the snowboarding portion was also celebrated with a Turbonegro show at Santos in NYC in November. Regular programming and a review from Oslo, with requisite sausage/hummus/fat rock comments, will resume in full tomorrow.

In honor of my current trip, I'll leave you with some Norwegian favorites like One Tail, One Head, Haust, Okkultokrati and Hellhammer (honorary Norwegians with respect to their influence). Listen below.

In case you missed it, we debuted a new Municipal Waste song, a new Asphyx video, got excited for the return of Sham 69, and confirmed that Nasum will play NYC.

What else is going on? A list of upcoming NYC shows and those songs, below...
