Formed in Tampa in 1984, Obituary has (as of 2019) released 10 studio albums and are considered pioneers of the death metal genre.
It was a night of much hair flipping, circle pitting, and Donald Tardy’s sweet, sweet double bass drumming. I was front and center for this one (hence the tight photos) and despite catching a few stray elbows from the pit behind me and the frantic headbanging on stage, I was actually able to grab a few in-focus shots. Each of these bands brought something different to the table, from the opening thrash of Extinction AD to the classic death metal sounds of Obituary, there was a little something for everybody. If you’re a fan of metal – or you just like headbanging to the point of soft tissue damage to the neck and shoulders – this show did not disappoint.
