GALLERY: Trap Them, Call of the Void—November 9th & 10th, 2017 @ Saint Vitus, NY

Whether they’re shooting multiple venues in a night, or meticulously crafting live show reviews; our photographers can be very busy at times. Because of this, we’ve collectively decided to break up our photo content into two different kinds. Posts titled PHOTOS will feature an in-depth review of a show, providing a personal insight into all the subtle nuances of a show along with a small selection of images to accompany the photographer’s thoughts. Whereas posts titled GALLERY will convey the energy and events of a show through a visual narrative, featuring collections of images that speak for themselves without the help of an accompanying write-up. Without further adieu, here is our first Gallery post of the final two shows from Trap Them, with Call of the Void, by resident NY photographer, Mark Valentino!

PHOTOS: Call of the Void, Bleak, Meek is Murder—October 5th, 2015 @ Amityville Music Hall, Amityville, NY

On October 5, 2015, Amityville Music Hall had the pleasure of having a night of chaotic hardcore. Kicking things off was Brooklyn-based Meek Is Murder. Vera band you should not sleep on because they’re a perfect mix between Converge and The Chariot, with their less-than-a-minute songs, there explosive material, etc.…

What Heavy Blog Is Really Listening To – 3/1/15

During his time as weekend editor here, one of the consistently most popular features Brian Shields would run was the What We’re Really Listening To column, which would ask either Heavy Blog staff or musicians to share the music they’ve been jamming the most recently. We’ve decided that it was too fun…

Call Of The Void – Ageless

It takes time and effort to follow up a really great album. Thankfully for themselves, and fans alike, Denver’s Call Of The Void did not rush in to writing the follow up to the pretty stellar Dragged Down A Dead End Path. Ageless is the bands newest release through Relapse…
