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 on 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.
