The almighty SAMOTHRACE are about to head into town for a whirlwind tour of Oakland, L.A., San Diego and Fullerton from August 18th to the 21st. To celebrate these epic harbingers of doom entering CVLT Nation territory, we have done a limited edition tee with SAMOTHRACE, drawn by Cub of the Woods, which will be on sale at their shows. For those of you who can’t make it, we will have a very small quantity up in the CVLT Store after the tour, but if you can make it to one of the five shows you can pick it up ASAP and for a special price…check out pictures of this collabo below and all the tour poster and dates after the jump!
CVLT Nation salutes AGE OF COLLAPSE & MURDERESS for bringing us a kick ass interview – stay tuned for Pt. 2. Also, make sure to pick up the new MURDERESS EP at their shows…peep the east coast tour dates after the jump!
Alright. First off, who would win in a fight: Lemmy or God?
Only Lemmy is real.
Who from your band do you think you could beat in a fight? Who from Age of Collapse do you think you could beat in a fight?
Amanda, Everyone in both bands. She trains in fighting people to the death every day of her life.
It seems like most of you have come from different places. New Mexico, California, Hawaii. What were the punk scenes like in your hometowns and why did you move to Portland?
Jozy (CO), Rachel (HI) – non-existent.
Amanda (WY)- there’s one tiny scene that includes everyone; there’s no sub-scenes.
Casey (CA) – Jim Beam and driving to drink at the parking lot of Honey’s.
We moved here because Portland is better than everywhere else.
Do you ever feel overwhelmed being part of a punk scene as rich / convoluted as Portland’s?
Our scene is not convoluted; it’s very splintered and specific. It makes it easier, actually. Portland is the best place on Earth.

This is a bulletin for all our loyal UK readers – stop what you’re doing, and make sure you clear your schedule starting next week on August 6th, because UK’s finest, RAMESSES, are doing three shows with our NOLA homies, EYEHATEGOD. This filthy duo will be demolishing stages alongside Dopefight in Bristol, Manchester and London on their way to the SuperNormal Festival and the Incubate Festival in Tilburg. We can only imagine the vast crushing epic that a night of Ramesses and Eyehategod would be, but for those of you who are able to experience it, we wish you extreme ear damage and bangover. In preparation for the audio torment, you can pick up an extra special vinyl edition of Ramesses’ DLP Possessed By The Rise Of Magik, featuring remixes by Justin Broadrick (Godflesh/Jesu/Greymachine/Final/JK Flesh). This dope-soaked musical journey comes encased in a deluxe red foiled gatefold, with full colour inner sleeves, in a limited run of either coal black vinyl or clear blood red vinyl. Check out a stream of their track “Sol Nocivo” remixed by Broadrick below (stay tuned for a CVLT Nation exclusive stream later this week), and pick up the vinyl on the Ritual Productions site HERE. Tour dates after the jump!
To celebrate their appearance at the 2012 This is Hardcore festival in Philly, Belgium’s Oathbreaker has just confirmed a 10-day tour of the Northeast states from August 5th, 2012 to August 15th, 2012. They’ll be playing shows from Brooklyn to Baltimore alongside American contemporaries like Gehenna, Old Wounds and more, so if they are in your area make sure you head out to support! CVLT Nation has a lot of love for Oathbreaker – their album Mælstrøm was on our Top 6 Hardcore Albums of 2011 list, and you can check out the Sonic Cathedrals Vol. XXVI mixtape they did for us here and an awesome Artist to Artist interview they did with Rise and Fall here. If you don’t own it already, pick up a vinyl copy of Mælstrøm here, and check out their USA East Coast Tour poster and dates after the jump…
So to pick up from my (last post). I’d like to share some sights and sounds from some radical shows that happened here in the Bay over the course of this Summer.
We have already made it halfway through the year and thus far 2012 alone has seen a handful of great tour packages which have pillaged their way through North America, but the year is far from over and the same goes for upcoming tours and releases alike. In this case, two upcoming tours from black metal bands based on our own American soil will both be invading their way over to the west coast as summer will be drawing to a close. The ones I’m building anticipation on and making reference to here are Minnesota (now TX-based) black metal band(s) TERATISM and HELLGOAT from Georgia. These two acts alone will be starting both tours in the Midwest region and then making their way towards the Southwest and Pacific Northwest regions. Although, there is a catch – as both of these tours are separate packages and will be making their way through some of the same cities (such as Portland, San Fransisco, Los Angeles) as well as those that may differ and may be on one roster but not the other. Hence, it is crucial to take note of the dates listed on both separate flyers and also it is needless to say, speaking from a spectator’s point of view that both of these bands know how to put on an excellent live show and make every mile traveled and every cent spent absolutely worthwhile.

If you are a fan of underground music, depending on where you live, you may not get to see your favorite bands that often. Touring is super expensive, and bands usually aren’t compensated too well at the shows, so a lot of their expenses come out of pocket. It’s hard to scrape together enough cash for a tour when your day job goes mostly to supporting yourself or your family. Sutekh Hexen is about to embark on their first cross-country tour this August, and have started a Kickstarter campaign to fund their tour. They have some amazing giveaways for their backers, ranging from a button/sticker pack for the lowest pledge up to gifts of CDs, LPs, t-shirts, posters and even your name in their liner notes of their upcoming full-length. To support these guys and get some awesome collectables, check out their Kickstarter campaign page. More info about the campaign and gifts, plus tour dates, after the jump…
It’s hard to believe that Los Angeles, California’s Fangs on Fur have existed almost 6 years to the day, having formed in 2006. The band plays an aggressive, old school type of deathrock with female vocals, recalling early California deathrock groups like Red Scare, the Superheroines, and punk bands like Action Pact or Rubella Ballet. They just released a new, 2-song 7″ called “Artifice Shank” and are gearing up for a Texas mini-tour in late Summer. Fangs on Fur’s Texas dates will culminate with them headlining the SAN LA MUERTE SOUTH TEXAS GOTH FEST in San Antonio on September 1 (which I will be DJing with others, it’s worth mentioning!).
I originally conducted this interview with them for No Doves Fly Here while they were recording their new single. Fangs on Fur’s self-titled debut LP is available here; they have a Myspace page here and a Facebook page here. San la Muerte tickets are available here.
The interview and more info on their Texas dates are after the jump!
