Yob to return to the stage this weekend at Northwest Terror Fest

Posted by Metal Riot on Thursday, June 15, 2017 at 12:50 PM (PST)
Cosmic doom trio YOB will make their return to the stage this week at the Northwest Terror Fest in Seattle, Washington alongside Coven, Cephalic Carnage, Wolves In The Throne Room, and so many others. The performance serves as guitarist/vocalist Mike Scheidt’s first show since undergoing emergency diverticulitis surgery earlier this year. Diverticulitis is an inflammation of the digestive tract and is often life-threatening.

 

Said Scheidt in a recent Facebook post to fans, “…Everything is different on my insides, and I’m learning to adjust to both healing pains and new normals. Time will tell which is which. All the same, slow and steady is my mantra. I have a feeling of gratitude that is consistent, and we’re writing so much new music with YOB that I don’t know how we’re going to distill it all… I wish nothing but love and health, laughs and inspiration for our shared, diverse, unique tribe. For those who have sent me messages, shared love, their time and help with my survival during these trials of mine, I remain ever thankful and count myself as beyond lucky. My ability to weather all of this and continue working is framed by these blessings. We are so looking forward to these shows…seeing friends, watching bands, and getting to share the stage. It’s surreal to be able to do it again. Can’t wait.”

Pics: Ghost at Palace Theatre in Albany

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Tuesday, June 13, 2017 at 5:16 PM (PST)

We have not had any photos for a little bit from our beloved butter muffin/camera pro Matt Slater (also of the band Beneath The Remains), as he has been chillin’ and here and there doing some stuff for the cool Outsider Magazine. Today Slater Master Hate returns to the Metal Riot fold with some cool shots of Sweden’s reigning melodic spooky gang Ghost from their recent off night from Iron Maiden tour headlining stop in Albany, NY. I can imagine it was a hell of a great show in such a good venue to see Ghost and Zombi.

The initial line up for Basilica Hudson‘s Basilica SoundScape 2017 shows the gem of a little festival continuing to be insanely well curated and offering some of the best in envelope pushing performers every year since inception.

Basilica SoundScape 2017 will feature a wide array of performers, writers, and visual artists whose work spans many different genres, mediums and approaches. More participants will be announced in the coming months, and the initial lineup can be viewed in full below.

Very stoked for the bulk of performers announced so far. Been jamming Zola Jesus’ old album The Spoils a lot of late and serpentwithfeet is one of the most next level performers – with a scary potent voice – I have heard in years.

Trying to win over an audience that is not necessarily metal-oriented is a formidable and refreshing challenge. Beyond that, this is one of the best-run and best-curated festivals in the U.S. We are proud to be a part of something so carefully considered. – Yellow Eyes

Mastodon confirmed as final headliners for Psycho Las Vegas

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Thursday, May 4, 2017 at 12:28 PM (PST)

Well, seems weird to be posting about music when the GOP just voted to make rape a pre-existing condition, but I guess cheer and motivation in the form of art is always important. I’m drinking tea and listening to “Linchpin” from Fear Factory and hoping everyone out there doesn’t give up the fight.

Anyway, some good news for rock and metal lovers. Mastodon have been added to the already insanely dope Psycho Las Vegas bill this year. King Diamond is doing classic Abigail entirely, Laura from Kylesa is unveiling a set of herself and special guests, you’ve got up and coming heralded as the next generation of top quality acts like Gatecreeper, Oathbreaker, Chelsea Wolfe and Inter Arma, varied styles of experimental metal from USNEA to Dark Castle plus a lot of my personal faves in the scene like Jex Thoth, Conan, Blood Ceremony and even the Cult of Luna collaboration with Julie Christmas!

Then you also have legacy bands like Diamond Head, Melvins, Swans, Carcass, Corrosion Of Conformity, Magma, Cirith Ungol. I mean, Jesus Christ!

Damn, yo. The event is set to take place from August 18th through August 20th, 2017 with a pre-party August 17th at the Hard Rock Hotel And Casino Las Vegas in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Temples Festival have announced grunge godfathers The Melvins as the Saturday night headliner. The fest line up this year is pretty damn forceable, featuring Jucifer, Acid King, All Pigs Must Die and many more great bands.

Statement:

Patrons of Temples Festival,

First and foremost, thank you all for the patience you’ve kindly extended of late.

Without further ado, it’s with great pride with which we finally announce our first Temples 2016 headliner, following on from the likes of Neurosis and Sunn0))) as our Saturday night headliner, please welcome (the) Melvins to Temples Festival 2016.

The Melvins will headline Saturday, June 4th alongside a diverse and tasteful selection of artists – for what’s set to be one of the heaviest & most memorable days in the history of Temples Festival. With over forty bands now announced and many more (including two headliners) still to be unveiled, we’re firmly on course for another monumental weekend.

As ever, we’ll be under-selling the overall capacity of Motion to minimise the strain on each room and ensure we can offer the most comfortable experience possible for each of our Patrons. We have secured a number of tasteful caterers for 2016 which includes an array of vegan and vegetarian options, and once again we’ll be offering a fairly priced Ale and Cider bar for the drinking contingency among us – this time, featuring a bespoke Temples Festival ale.

Florida Metal Fest (Organized by Tardy brothers) kicks off soon.

January 30th, 2016 will mark the official kick off of the first annual Florida Metal Fest! Organized by brothers John and Donald Tardy of death metal legends, Obituary, and set to take place at The Cuban Club, Ybor City in Tampa, the event looks really awesome. The bands are mainly veterans celebrating Florida’s significant contribution to Death Metal, with some friends from around the scene like legends C.O.C. and Madball thrown in for good measure. There are even 2 battle of the bands winners to be involved, which is really good because we need to grow the newer talent. This reflects well on team Tardy.

 

Honestly, I do wish they’d gotten Origin, Downfall of Gaia, Black Breath or almost any band besides Malevolent Creation, though. I just can’t hang with the racism that I have heard repeated about them often for many years. While the scene needs to learn some measure of forgiveness and to thus encourage people to evolve attitudes, we also have to discuss and adjust these issues because they are not ok. Sweeping them under the rug is not cool. Like, I’m listening to Jarboe’s “Forbid” from Disburden Disciple right now about forbidden interracial love and it seems at odds with sincere racist jokes.

That said, Trouble and Atheist are fucking playing this and many other kick ass bands I fully love.

Said John Tardy of fest: “My brother and I have been so fortunate and thankful to be part of some the best and biggest music festivals in the world. The amount of people, bands and energy these festivals can bring is just awesome. From the first time we played one, it has always been a dream of ours to put together a music festival that is not only fun for the fans, bands and crews, but one that also brings a closeness to all involved. After years and years of talking about it, we finally decided the time is now. We want to put together a first class festival. From the venue to the PA, from the lights to the lineup we are trying our best to make this as memorable event as possible. No festival, anywhere in the world, even with the best possible lineup, would work if the area does not support it. I think that Tampa, and its surrounding cities, is a great music area and one that is ready to make this event come to life.”

Roadburn 2016 is lookin’ sexy as usual with Black Mountain, Brothers of the Sonic Cloth and other killer acts slated to appear, but many people will be drooling about a full set of Jane Doe from some band called Converge you may have heard of. While that is cool, I think all the emphasis on that record takes away from how many of their other albums are just as awesome (Axe To Fall and You Fail Me in particular). But hey, it’s still rad. But I’m much more keen on the second announcement which finds the band teaming up with some awesome guests to reinterpret some of their weirder tunes.

To celebrate the upcoming 15 year anniversary of their legendary Jane Doe album, CONVERGE will perform the album in its entirety for the first and last time. The album is considered a classic that defined the metallic hardcore genre as we know it today. This special set is exclusive to the Roadburn Festival and will not be played again anywhere, ever.

CONVERGE will play the Jane Doe album live in its entirety at Roadburn 2016 on Thursday, April 14. 

CONVERGE “Blood Moon” is a collaboration between members Jacob Bannon, Kurt Ballou, Nate Newton, and Ben Koller and guest musicians Chelsea Wolfe, Ben Chisholm, Stephen Brodsky, and Steve Von Till. Together as a multi-instrumental group they will create renditions of existing CONVERGE material focusing on the band’s slower, more ambitious work within their legendary catalogue. 
CONVERGE “Blood Moon” will perform live at Roadburn 2016 on Saturday, April 16.

Lots of good news to start off the metal weekend. “Wake Up And Smell The…” from Carcass is finally available on vinyl HERE. Monte Pittman retweeted yesterday’s Confrontational interview to his 80k+ twitter followers (thanks, dude!). Mortiis are returning to the USA and have new music coming. Kylesa’s new album is out. I just got the new Skindred promo which is sure to make me jump up and down. Aaaand last but certainly not least, I know some of you have been getting into Tau Cross, right?

TAU CROSS, the veteran punk / metal collective, revolving around Amebix bassist/frontman Rob Miller, Voivod drummer Michel ‘Away’ Langevin, and members of cult crust outfit Misery, will be playing a one off show at Roadburn 2016, along with Neurosis and Amenra, on Saturday, April 16th at the 013 venue in Tilburg, The Netherlands.

“TAU CROSS are delighted to announce that we have been invited to play at the 2016 Roadburn Festival. This will be our only upcoming European show, we are all looking forward to playing at this very special event” – Rob Miller.

Organizers say:

“Having TAU CROSS on the main-stage is causing us joy of unbridled proportions. Miller and Langevin are not only mutual admirers and peers, but their bands have been a huge influence on all things Roadburn. With all of the seminal bands and great musicians taking part on Saturday, it’s guaranteed to be epic.”

New York, New York: Sean Yseult, best known as the bass player from the multi-platinum and twice Grammy-nominated band White Zombie, presents her first solo show in New York City. RETROSPECTIVE – a love letter to her long-time muse, New Orleans – is a collaboration of early work from 2004, SEX & DEATH & ROCKNROLL (2012), MISSISSIPPI MERMAIDS (2013) and her current show, still on partial view at the Scott Edwards Gallery through October 2015, SOIRÉE D’EVOLUTION: TABLEAUX VIVANTS ET NATURE MORTES.

This exhibition brings Yseult full-circle, having lived in New York City from 1982 – 1991, during which time she co-founded White Zombie while attending Parsons The New School for Design in Manhattan’s West Village, before moving to New Orleans in 1996 with nothing more than a single suitcase, a guitar, a banjo, and a Polaroid Land Camera.

Hard rockers Life Of Agony always put their best foot forward live and the footage from Grasspop 2015 is a great example of how they still bring it hard.
