Immolation had decided to do a quick “one-off” show in NYC in preparation for their upcoming headlining tour which would find Vader in the direct support slot. This show would be held at The Studio which is located beneath Webster Hall and the special appearance would bring along their label mates Arsis and the band Disma. I had interest in all of the performers this evening so made sure to get there nice and early to be able to report on the whole event. To see the full article and photos of each of the bands just click the bands logo below to be taken to our report on the main PiercingMetal.com site.
Immolation had some really cool shirts and other merchandise available for sale at the gig. I snared myself one of the new designs with the new album cover since it was so foreboding. The band was also at their booth before and after the show to sign stuff and to take photos. They are always interested in their fans and really awesome dudes to meet.
I’ve been fortunate enough to talk to the Immolation guys over the last couple of years and they are definitely awesome Brethren In Metal. Here’s a shot of Bob, Ross, Pete and I just before the band took to the stage. They were amused at how both Peter and I were sporting bald (almost) domes and gave kudos when they learned it was done for the Children’s Cancer Charity – St. Baldricks.
