After being deported from Norway for meth possession, Scott "Wino" Weinrich will be returning to the stage later this month.
Brooklyn-based booking/promotions agency Some Pig Presents is proud to announce the first annual music festival Feast of Krampus, with dates in Philadelphia and Brooklyn. Conceived as a dark and twisted holiday celebration, Feast of Krampus will feature the heavy metal legend Wino, along with a supporting bill.
Save your holiday cheer for the department stores and cocktail parties; Feast of Krampus is a dark offering of blood, volume, and mayhem to the merciless lord of Yuletide terror.
Headlining the inaugural Feast of Krampus will be Wino, front man of quintessential heavy bands Saint Vitus, The Obsessed, and Spirit Caravan. For over 30 years he has stood as a pillar of the genre, and his prolific studio output and constant touring reveal an unrivaled longevity.
Also appearing at both dates will be heavy veterans Sixty Watt Shaman. Filling out each bill are a number of noteworthy acts both local and regional. In Philly we'll be joined by Wizard Eye, Skeleton Hands, and Chimpgrinder, while Brooklyn support includes Godmaker, Birch Hill Dam, Moon Tooth, and Buzzard Canyon. More...
Brooklyn-based music blog The Bent Unit will be hosting the first annual Sludgefeast on November 15th. The 1-day celebration of metal, doom, sludge, noise, and psych will include headliners Naam and White Hills, along with 9 more bands rounding out the bill.
Moreover, Naam recently announced that this would be the band's last performance ever, meaning the final set of the night will also be the final set of a band that has truly carried the torch of heavy music in Brooklyn for the past 5+ years.
The organizer of the festival comments: "It will be sad to see them go, but we're happy to say that we'll see them out in the blaze of glory they truly deserve."

It's Not Night: It's Space
The long awaited Doommantia Vol. 2 anthology has been released. This compilation was put together to raise money to benefit Ed Barnard, founder of Doommantia.com. After suffering with heart problems for years, Ed was hit with astronomical hospital bills which left him homeless. Due to the lack of decent healthcare in the US, Ed has now returned to his homeland of Australia to receive the care he deserves.
To help him with living expenses, 84 bands and artists from all over the world have come together once again to ease the burden left upon Ed. Just a nominal sum (with an option to pay more) gets you over 9 hours of some of the best doom, stoner, sludge, psychedelic, and drone jams out there. Stream the whole compilation and get the download details over at bandcamp. More...
