YOB brought their powerful doom metal sound to Thalia Hall in Chicago as part of their current North American tour. Their six songs, hour and fifteen minute set was full of low frequency riffs, crushing vocals, and waves of sonic intensity. Fans enjoyed seeing Levy Seynaeve (bassist of opening band Amenra) perform “Grasping Air” alongside YOB. Their set flowed seamlessly for an exciting, compelling performance.
Renowned death metal band Cannibal Corpse tore through Chicago alongside Morbid Angel during their recent U.S. tour. Easily one of the strongest and most consistent acts over the last 30 years, Cannibal Corpse unleashed a relentless set with several fan favorites highlighting many of their best songs from different points in their career, and ending with none other than the brutal “Hammer Smashed Face”.
Death metal legends Morbid Angel are currently co-headlining a U.S. tour with Cannibal Corpse. Their set at the Concord in Chicago showed a wide range of heavy material; opening with three songs from their latest album, 2017’s “Kingdoms Disdained,” to older fan favorites such as “Day of Suffering” and “God of Emptiness.” Their harsh, chaotic death metal sound was a massive hit with fans.
Following the release of their latest album “Ritual”, Soulfly set out on a tour of the U.S. in January and made their way to The Forge on February 14th. With the announcement of the tour, frontman Max Cavalera assured fans “we are gonna destroy everything that comes in our path!” Soulfly certainly made good on that promise at The Forge, playing a crushing set full of old classics and new favorites alike.
