BLACK ANVIL: New York Black Metallers Announce Additional Live Infiltrations; Tour With Skeletonwitch And Ghoul To Commence Next Month

New York black metallers, BLACK ANVIL, are gathering their ammo for a live infiltration alongside Skeletonwitch and Ghoul. Set to embark on September 5th in Chicago, the nefarious caravan will blister its way through seventeen cities, coming to a close on September 24th in San Francisco. From there, BLACK ANVIL will perform four additional headlining shows in Salt Lake City, Denver, St. Louis and Covington with more live incursions to be announced in the coming weeks.

BLACK ANVIL will be touring in support of their recently unleashed Hail Death full-length. Championed by Pitchfork for its, “impressive balance of progressivism and putridity,” commended by Noisey for delivering some of the most, “vicious and satisfying black metal laid to tape in the last few years,” and called, “an epic piece of black/thrash metal,” by Metal Underground, the audio vehemence comprising Hail Death continues to rouse listeners both Stateside and beyond for its expansive pallet of influences that pay homage to the likes of Celtic Frost, Metallica, Kiss, Bathory and Watain. Wandering Sound notes, “Hail Death isn’t merely eclectic, it’s epic – a coherent assemblage of songs that provide unanticipated rewards around every corner,” Stereogum boasts, “Hail Death is a pure metal album that relishes in the genre’s conventions without feeling conventional: It’s simply anthemic, aggressive, bombastic, thrilling, and fucking heavy,” while adds, “The scope of these songs is outrageous, eclipsing anything the band have done to date. The hatred and contempt still pulses within, though the method of distribution on Hail Death has far greater wealth to it than their approach on their first two albums.”

Check out live footage of the band performing Hail Death in its infernal entirety at their official record release show held last month at Brooklyn’s Saint Vitus Bar below.
