We might have been missing one of the headliners, but all bands were so good on this night that no one, including yours truly, could care less. This was three hours of death metal at its finest.
“Not long after pulling up we saw a guy shoot something into his arm about a foot from the van, and within 20 feet there were people smoking crack.” This is one of several bizarre anecdotes offered as Jay H. Gorania returns with another installment of his tour diary with Cephalic Carnage.
There are very few bands which can inspire relentless, reckless hedonism in the same way Destroyer 666 can; their very essence screams out the wild whirlwind in all of us. Owning the stage from first note to last, guitarist/vocalist KK Warslut and Co. pushed the rabid Providence crowd to the brink of the precipice and back, leaving no head un-banged, no fist un-pounded and no soul un-reaped by the maniacal, merciless onslaught.
