Cannibal Corpse -- Farmingdale, NY -- April 25th, 2010
What a night. I've been on my feet since 1 in the afternoon, and let me tell you, it's been well worth it.
Starting from the beginning, got inside with a wristband to help load shit in for the first band, Carcinogen. Bitch all you want about the name, these guys played really well, tonight.
After that, Lecherous Nocturne. I didn't get their set, I'm not all that familiar with them, but the drummer, Alex (I think? I know for a fact his name wasn't Jeremy as the metal-archives page says), and Vocalist, Jason, are both really cool guys. They know what they're talking about. They're actually going to be opening up for a pretty sick death metal tour this fall. I don't want to say too much, but the headliner will be Immolation. Outside of that, we'll see where it goes.
After them was this band from Tampa who were filling in for 1349 on the tour until tonight when they finally joined the tour. Tonight was the last night of the tour for Diabolic and the first for 1349, so we pretty much got the largest date of the tour (unless you count the NEMAH fest).
Next up: Skeletonwitch. I got a nice peak at their setlist while we were loading Carcinogen's drum kit onstage. A couple things were crossed off, but this was the set, the bold names are the ones that were crossed off.
Submit to the Suffering
Upon Wings of Black
The Despoiler of Human Life
Sacrifice for the Slaughtergod
Fire From The Sky
Limb From Limb
Stand, Fight, and Die
Crushed Beyond Dust
Beyond the Permafrost
Strangled By Unseen Hands
Vengeance Will Be Mine
Blinding Black Rage
Within My Blood
Next up, we have 1349. First night of the tour for them, as I said before. These guys got a really nice reaction, but for me, personally, they're a studio band. They're not that special live. That's just me, though. Anyway, here's the set:
Riders of the Apocalypse
When I Was Flesh
I am Abomination
...And now... the living legends.... Cannibal Fucking Corpse. What needs to be said about this band that hasn't already been said? These guys are absolutely incredible. When we first got inside, we watched their soundcheck. No Corpsegrinder, but it was still sick. The last song they played was FRANTIC DISEMBOWELMENT. What a fucking song, man. Rob Barrett jammed out on Conquer All from Behemoth for a few seconds, and then they went right into it, and it was fuckin sick. Around 530, they had a Meet and Greet. I'll tell you now, it's all true, these guys are the nicest people you'll ever meet. They really know how to show their appreciation. Just really down to Earth people, and that's a great quality to be able to retain after 20 of being the most established death metal band in the world. It doesn't get much better than standing right next to your idols and just talking about nothing. Couldn't ask for anything better. After the show, I got the setlist signed by everyone except Pat. According to Alex and Paul, the last couple of days have been hell, and he just wanted to pass out. Understandable. They are changing the set up, mine says SETLIST-2. So, without any further adieu, here's Corpse's set:
Unleashing the Bloodthirsty
The Wretched Spawn
I Will Kill You
The Cryptic Stench
Pounded Into Dust
Death Walking Terror
Scattered Remains, Splattered Brains
Pit of Zombies
Make Them Suffer
Priests of Sodom
Staring Through the Eyes of the Dead
A Skull Full of Maggots
Hammer Smashed Face
Stripped Raped and Strangled
I also found out that Jarrett Pritchard from Eulogy was doing the sound for the tour, and Eulogy will be coming out with a new EP this year. Looking forward to it.
Definitely one of the best nights I've ever had in my life. Cannot wait to see these guys again. Probably sometime in November, Paul said. Headlining run. short run, but there will definitely be a NYC show. Fuckin A, man.
