Late September beheld the arrival of one of death metal’s behemoths to New York City’s B.B. King’s Blues Club in Times Square, New York City: the return of Morbid Angel
for the first time in more than six years. Opening for them were two stalwarts from Sweden – second-wave black-metallers Dark Funeral
and seminal death metal act Grave (currently touring their August release, Endless Procession of Souls
) – and Columbia, SC blackened death metal group VadimVon, bringing together four hours of pounding metal madness.
