The summer predictions for 2014 based on the Farmer’s Almanac said that we were in for a potentially oppressive level of heat, humidity and all the rest of that unpleasantness that comes along with it and then comes the news about this years Summer Slaughter which will amp it up for sure.
The Details: Morbid Angel is one of the defining forces of Death Metal music and while initially delivering more of a Thrash Metal sound, by the time their debut album “Altars Of Madness” was delivered in 1989, it was all about crushing their fans with a more sinister frame of mind. Their third album was called “Covenant” and it celebrated its 20th year this past June and in honor of this milestone the guys are doing a tour and playing this release in its entirety. They’ll be enhancing the appeal by offering up some other morbid classics for sure and our regional show will find support from four talented local groups. Thanks to the fine folks at Livenation, PiercingMetal is also raising a glass in the bands honor by hosting this contest that will put some of our lucky fans into the room. Read more below.
