Immolation, shouting out the old school!
Immolation

In the metal machine known as the "touring package" and the "festival circuit", it's a rarity for a band to be able to spread their wings and deliver a full set instead of the usual 20 minute set between deathcore-#2 and melodic-symophonic-black-metal-#7. Wednesday was one of those nights though, as New York Death Metal greats Immolation headlined a show at The Studio at Webster Hall with Arsis and New Jersey death metal killers Disma.

As a fan of their generally hard-to-come-by demo, I was pleasantly surprised with the turnout for Disma; I guess word gets around when you share members of Icantation/Funebrarum/Evoken. The five piece band of linebackers (looked like it anyway) did not deliver the most energetic set of the evening (that distinction goes to Immolation), but were technically sound, water-tight and great. Arsis is honestly not my thing (a bit too clinical for my tastes, I like my DM blatantly filthy), but rocked an energetic and cohesive set though the guitars seemed to be a bit low in the mix.

Immolation was fantastic, and it is awesome to see Ross absolutely belt it out and Vigna do his crazy guitar theatrics (swinging his axe like it was... an axe, doing odd guitar picking to make fun hand gestures) in such a small environment. Lots of NYDM leather vests were represented, and every single song was dedicated to five people who had "been there from the beginning". Their hour-plus set was across most of their output, with a slightly heavier nod to their latest LP, Majesty & Decay.

Tons more pics from the show are below...

Bob Vigna is one of the best DM shredders ever.

A good show in New York for a change. Arsis was boring, Disma was great, Immolation was also cool.

"a good show in New York for a change" - hilarious douche quote of the year. double because it seems to be some metal show for fat guys. maybe move to norway

Good show, Disma is a band to reckon with, Arsis wasn't as bad as I thought but not interesting. I remember hearing Immolation were boring live but these guys were anything but. Wished they played less of the new stuff but still awesome.
