On the heels of "Pantheon Of The Lesser," their second album for Important Records, and subsequent features in Decibel, Metal Maniacs, and Terrorizer, Portland, Maine quartet OCEAN is joining Virginia trio SALOME (featuring members of AGORAPHOBIC NOSEBLEED) for a night of epic doom February 15 at Brooklyn, New York's Public Assembly (formerly Galapagos) as part of the third installment of Pitchfork's monthly SHOW NO MERCY Showcase. (The first two events were headlined by Nachtmystium/Velnius and Skeletonwitch/Cannabis Corpse, respectively.)
OCEAN and SALOME will be joined by Boston riff rockers RIFF CANNON and Brooklyn's own icy minimalist doom crew BATILLUS. Future SHOW NO MERCY events will include Tombs, Crucifier, Wetnurse, Krieg, and Krallice, among others.
Each month, artist SELDON HUNT (Neurosis, Khanate, Jesu, Isis, etc.) will create original SHOW NO MERCY flyer designs. The series is organized by BRANDON STOSUY, who writes Pitchfork's monthly metal column, SHOW NO MERCY.
Greek thrash metallers CRUCIFIER have inked a deal with Ibex Moon Records, the label run by INCANTATION mainman John McEntee.
According to a press release, CRUCIFIER has been playing '80s- and early '90s-influenced thrash for over a decade in the vein of RAZOR, SACRIFICE, DARK ANGEL, BLOOD FEAST and many more.
Commented John McEntee: "It's great to be working with the guys in CRUCIFIER. They have a fast aggressive vibe that is reminiscent of the great underground thrash bands of the '80s. It's killer to see these guys keeping the true metal feeling alive. Prepare for a devastating thrash metal assault."
CRUCIFIER guitarist Nik stated: "We are pleased to announce that we have signed to Ibex Moon Records from USA and we're very satisfied to work with such cool people and hope that all goes well and of course make some great albums too."
Ibex Moon Records will re-release CRUCIFIER's second full-length CD, "Cursed Cross", with totally new packaging, remastered and with bonus tracks, later this year.
Look out for a new thrash metal assault by CRUCIFIER in 2009.
