This event is 21 and over
10 years and going strong. Like the best of Eyehategod or Bastard Noise, All the Waters is the rare album that feels truly dangerous. As it crushes and collides doom metal, harsh noise, industrial rock, and gospel singing into one mean mess, it seems to obey no rules but its own. The result is a singular, explosive masterpiece and one of the year's essential heavy exploits -- even if, at turns, it sends you cowering. - Pitchfork.com
Mutilation Rites is a filthy black metal band out of Brooklyn that incorporates elements of doom, blackened thrash, and crust with influences including, but not limited to, Darkthrone, Discharge and Dissection. The band started in New York City in the winter of 2009, with the joining of Michael Dimmitt on guitar and Justin Ennis (ex-Tombs) on drums. After a few lineup changes, they solidified with George Paul on second guitar and vocals and Iain Deaderick on bass. Ennis and Paul were in Heuristic out of Boston from 2005-2007. Ennis and Deaderick also played together in Curendera, a short-lived but brutal power-violence/grind band out of Brooklyn.
Their Prosthetic Records debut album 'Emypyrean' earned rave reviews from the metal world and beyond, landing at #11 on Pitchfork's list of Top 40 metal albums of 2012. Pitchfork said, 'Think of late-period Darkthrone vomiting the youthful version of themselves onto the crowd at a filthy DIY space. It's stately and epic, but booze-soaked, filthy, and feral."
The band is on tour with Inter Arma this spring was just added to the lineup for the 15th Annual New England Metal and Harcdcore Festival on April 19.
Geryon is Nicholas McMaster and Lev Weinstein.
