Battlefields, at war.
Tombs

Brooklyn's own (and future Mayhem/Ludicra tourmates) Tombs crossed paths with the ongoing Translation Loss Tour featuring Rosetta, City of Ships, and Battlefields at Union Pool on Friday, 1/22. The show was a BV/1000 Knives production, one of two happening this past weekend (the second was Magrudergrind/Defeatist at Cake Shop on Saturday).

Every band impressed, though the clear crowd pleasers were repeat NYC offenders Tombs and Rosetta. City of Ships matched the intensity of Look What God Did To Us with an equally bombastic live show while opener Battlefields blew me away once channeled through a decent PA (as opposed to the DIY jump-offs I've recently seen them play on). Tombs gets more explosive with every time out, and Winter Hours favorites like "Filled With Secrets" were as resonant as they were pummeling.

At the show, Rosetta announced another upcoming NYC show in addition to their show with East of The Wall & Goes Cube at The Charleston on 2/19. Look for the band at Public Assembly on 3/28 with Starkweather and Junius.
