Venue: B.B. King Blues Club (New York, NY)
Opener: Johnny B. Morbid, Car Bomb, Bella Morte
Date: 9/7/2008

Tonight’s show was going to find me exhausted long before I even walked in to the venue for it seemed as only a few hours before that I was leaving the show that the legendary Carcass had held over at the nearby Nokia Theater. The band headlined a six band bill and to do the Metal thing properly we were on point for every single band and this show started early and ended late. Since Sunday’s show was to feature another influential musical personality I had to muster my strength and get myself back into action for it. The guitarist who is well known as Doyle Wolfgang von Frankenstein comes to us originally from The Misfits and while he had appeared at a number of Danzig shows for the brief Misfit set, he had not done that in awhile and was now adventuring out on his own.

For not only was Type-O-Negative drummer Johnny Kelly handling the chores on the drum kit but it was also disclosed that the show would feature another very special and historic musical guest.

Kicking off the evening was Trivium, a Roadrunner act who was promoting their latest piece of metal. I enjoyed them more this time around than when I first saw them opening for Iced Earth last year. Lots of old school feel in the Nu-Metal styling of these guys. Worthy of a look see. Just before Danzig was the band Kataclysm, who while proclaiming themselves a Death Metal band did not impress me as much as the previous weeks show of Behemoth/Suffocation. They did everything right in the Death Metal sense, however, there was not as much presence as I had recently absorbed.
