This is going to be an incredible festival, and we are counting the hours. Join us there if you can make it.
still remaining is their intense metal assault. They’re one of the few bands of the Death Metal genre that manages to find the perfect balance of heavy and melody.
Cradle of Filth cast a spell that evening, making many fans not want to leave nor have the show end.
Despite the hectic weather conditions and being a working Monday, fans of the brutal and Legendary Napalm Death gathered at a packed Gramercy Theater. Also in the line up the master musicians in Voivod and the young and raw energy of Iron Reagan.
We released probably the most important record in our career. And it feels weird after two decades of being around and struggling and touring and releasing albums. That was the tenth record in our career. And both fans and media claim The Satanist is the best Behemoth album ever
While tracks from The Satanist unsurprisingly feature prominently in the setlist, accompanied mostly by others from the last decade, they do make time for older tracks including their debut album opener, ‘Chant of the Eastern Lands’ before posing for a group photo and exiting the stage. Encouraging chants of “Be-he-moth” summon the foursome back to their ranks for a finale of ‘O Father O Satan O Sun!’, dressed in the eerie hooded robes and horns seen in the graphic ‘Blow Your Trumpets’ video. Thus ended a show that is surely the favourite for the title of “Best Irish Metal Event of 2014”, and massive appreciation is due to all who made it happen.
Promotion for tonight’s show in the Voodoo lounge was bound to raise some eyebrows with a line-up featuring Dying Fetus, Goatwhore, Malevolence and Fallujah. The band names alone leave no doubts that the gig is not for the faint-hearted, nor for fans of One Direction. But the 200 or so fans of brutal and technical death metal that have congregated are certainly in for a treat.
I have never listened to a Revocation album with my “reviewer” ears on so this was an interesting look into their music. I’m not super knowledgeable about them, but I do know that the wealth of their music I have been exposed to over the years has always been a good listen. Upon a closer inspection on Deathless, I think, for me at least, if they ever decided to do an all-instrumental album I would really love it. I still very much enjoyed this release, if for no other reason to hear an array of stellar six string mastery.
Obituary have been at this game now going on 30 years and released two of the most important death metal albums of all time – namely “Slowly We Rot” and “Cause of Death”.
