Brooklyn, NY’s Yellow Eyes should be a name you’re familiar with by now. The group has quietly been releasing some of the best and most inimitable black metal the world over since 2012.

Keeping the recaps and highlights of this past August’s Migration Fest moving along, we move on to our (my) second installment… you can catch the first part here.

On a particularly cool June evening, I headed to Greenpoint’s metal mecca, Saint Vitus Bar, to catch a pretty stacked bill for Northside Festival (this show presented by Noisey): Yellow Eyes, Couch Slut, Tombs and Dälek. The highlight of the bill, and the reason for my attendance was Couch Slut. So, despite three other brilliant performances by bands you should support, give money to, go see and generally praise by thinking about them as you drift off to sleep, we will cover Couch Slut’s set in this review. And, if you’re wondering, my night started off at Tommy’s Tavern where Miller High Life is both affordable and cold. So, the words that follow are heavily influenced by that experience.
The guys talk recent news from Wax Idols, King Woman and Corrosion of Conformity, then Dan launches into not one, but TWO concert reviews! From TWO nights in a row! It’s like 2015 all over again! Plus, new albums from Sarabante and Astronoid.
All that and much, much more in Episode 46, so check it out!
