ALTERBEAST RIPS A NEW ONE IN CORPUS CHRISTI, TX FEB 23, 2018

     Unholy hell!  Alterbeast played in Corpus Christi, TX on Feb 23, 2018 and totally destroyed Boozers Rock Bar.  It also happened to have been the release if their new album Feast, which happens to be a total face melter.  Seriously, this album rips.  As for their live performance, they are precise, brutal and in your face!  Being at a death metal show, such as Alterbeast, is very cathartic in the sense that everyone in attendance is there to lose themselves to the music.  The speed riffing, blast beats and vocal growling make for a perfect outlet of pent up emotions.  The band played songs from both albums which the fans feasted on feverishly.  It’s rare to get such great tech death metal band that is diverse in its sounds and separates itself from the pack by playing riffs that are melodic and punishing at the same time. Catch Alterbeast live; you wont be disappointed

Sepultura April 8, 2017 The Aztec Theater @sepulturacombr @theaztectheater

I remember the first time I heard Sepultura.  I was still in high school at the time.  A friend happened to have a demo tape of a band from Brazil and it was death metal (this was before Sepultura was signed to a major label).  He popped in the cassette, I put the headphones on my ears and pushed play- and once the music started, my ears were bombarded, they didn't know what to do.  I was suddenly assaulted with this brutal music and I can honestly say, my head felt like it was spinning.  What an experience.

Fast forward to today, seeing Selputura play live is just as exciting.  The onslaught of their brand of music is a welcome.  I can scratch one off the my bucket list of bands to see live.  And they deliver.  Even after 30 years, they still sound fresh with their new album Machine Messiah, letting fans know they are still just as brutal.  If you have a chance, see them live. You won't regret it.  In fact, you'll be thankful.
