Hogwasche brings industrial metal to St.Vitus on 5.25

New York industrial metal outfit Hogwasche's excellent debut MBM has established them as the new heavy hitters in the EBM (Electronic Body Music) world. The band only had their first show in February of this year, and has already gotten to play shows with the wildly popular EBM and industrial act Youth Code. Hogwasche doesn’t just rely on electronic beats; guitarist and bassist Nix’s work adds to the band’s interestingly layered sound. They blend the EBM and metal genres by alternating between clean and screamed vocals. Hogwasche will be playing at Saint Vitus on May 23rd in support of Weedeater. Check out their opening single 'Escape a Curse' below!


New Gondola EP Available For Streaming & Purchase

Recorded during the same sessions that resulted in their Get Bent album, Gondola recently issued a new EP The Floating East. The triad of songs captures a possessing mind-warping heaviness. The sticky fire of guitar licks slices through, unifying the pounding propulsion of bass and percussion as the vocals steer from deep in the valley. Catch the trio in the opening slot at Underground Arts Saturday as part of a lineup that also includes Creepoid, Kohoutek, and Dead Meadow. 

New Music Video: "Emotional Collapse" - Hound

Hound frontman Perry Shall looks like he's having the best time getting the worst presents at his bday celebration in the band's new music video for "Emotional Collapse". The faux home-movie backdrop gives way to some bitchin' heavy-psych jams that are found on their latest LP Out Of Space (SRA Records). Enjoy!


Brooklyn post-hardcore band DRIFTOFF returns from European tour

Blending the classic post-hardcore guttural screams with an epic, often tense, but always intelligible wall of distorted guitars reminiscent of shoegazer, Brooklyn emerging band DRIFTOFF (born from a rib of Boston's Junius) comes across as brutal and ethereal at once. The band has just returned from a five week long tour that took them from New Haven's Bar on February 10 to the Tiefgrund in Berlin on March 17, with in-between dates in NYC (Bowery Ballroom), Island, the Netherlands and Italy. Now, that sounds like a pretty awesome vacation! No local shows in sight for them at the moment.

The Cloth Opening for Kal Marks at JB's March 30

Ominous clouds set in as The Cloth hits the stage this evening at Johnny Brenda’s. The band shreds through obstacles as a combination of fury and torment fuse, revealing themselves in the determined, emotive immediacy of the primordial vocals. Loaded with a batch of freshly recorded songs as they prepare for a tour in late spring, the band steadily moves forward, wielding an unrelenting heaviness that storms the gates as plunging bass and pummeling drums are joined by serrated guitar. The clashing of tranquil subdued melody meeting swift blasts of fuzzed-out grunge creates an intriguing juxtaposing dynamic to Blue Smiley. Pop-punk quartet Left and Right celebrate their new EP, Pivot Foot, released today. With their own new record Life is Alright, Everybody Dies, Boston’s Kal Marks explores the dreary avenues of the mind with a pronounced heavy yet captivating personal touch. Johnny Brenda’s, 1201 N. Frankford Ave., 9pm, $10, 21+ - Michael Colavita
