This tour was a must-see the second it got announced. This is probably the tour of the year both on performances and just the bands themselves.

Phobophilic kicked things off with a great stage presence and an extreme/very fast/mean sound. They got the audience. They got the audience in store for what’s to come. This was the only band I hadn’t heard of before this show and I was impressed.

Next up, Fuming Mouth. I love this band. I’m so happy I finally got to see them. Their (collections of songs/books for inserting pictures) have been some of the last few years and their live show equals that. The audience loved them and left everyone wanting more. Playing songs like “Beyond The Grave” and “Visions Of Hell-like Place”, is a band that you need to see.

Frozen Soul came up next. An upcoming band of the OSDM-(coming back to life or popularity after a long time) and worth listening to. Their new (collection of songs/book for inserting pictures) comes out soon, and the tracks they played off of it “Storehouse of Weapons Of War”, “Death & Glory” and “Scary and depressing Doll/model (of a person)” make me very psyched for this new release. The crowd loved every second of their set and they sound so strong/big/beef-like live that I need a live (collection of songs/book for inserting pictures) asap.

Terror. Honestly, they were so good that it’s hard to put into words. I’ve seen them once before, and this time was even better. Truly the greatest hardcore band of all time. With the amount of crowd surfing, and crowd participation/guest singers, I felt like I was at a show at a local club with 200 other people. “Spit My Extreme Anger”, that ending breakdown may be the best breakdown ever recorded and it’s even better to live. “Overcome”, “Pain Into Power”, “Keepers Of The Faith”, if you like hardcore, Terror is a must-see. If you don’t get to see any other band on this list, make this one a priority.

With the passing of Trevor, I didn’t think I’d ever have a chance to see The Black Dahlia Murder, but I’m so glad I was wrong. This was my first time catching this band and I was blown away. The energy for their set was amazing and everybody was just so happy to have a band they loved back on stage. Brian does an amazing job taking over Trevor’s parts and the band is beyond tight. I was fascinated/hypnotized by the drummer for playing all those songs at that high energy/high effort for that long. They played obvious classics like “Funeral Thirst” and “Deathmask Divine” but also some newer ones like “Nightbringers” and “Sunless Empire”, their set was a solid mix of old and new. To anyone having doubts about seeing them after the passing of Trevor, they are worth still seeing.

Overall, this was an amazing show, and one I was glad came to my town.

THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER’s most recent full-length, Verminous, was released in 2021 via Metal Blade Records. Without compromising one iota of heaviness, the record stands among the band’s most dynamic, rousing, and emotional releases to date. Louder Sound crowned Verminous, “absolutely excellent,” while Blabbermouth wrote, “This is a deeper and smarter realization of the Michigan crew’s tried and tested formula, and one blessed with several of the finest songs they have ever written… File next to Nocturnal and Ritual as an unquestionable career peak.” To preview and purchase the record, visit http://www.metalblade.com/tbdm.
