Deicide punishes death metal hungry crowd at Trixieâ€™s with Season of Suffering, Stonecutters, Savage Master, and FaithXtractor
Death Metal Icon Deicide brought their wrath to Trixieâ€™s Entertainment complex in Louisville, Kentucky on Tuesday night. Before the venue doors open, there was plenty of anticipation for toniteâ€™s show by the many that had assembled to get a front and center position for the show. Deicide, on their Death In The Manger – aka (Off the beaten path tour) tour during the month of December, opened their long set with â€œHomage to Satan,â€ â€Dead by Dawn,â€ and â€œOnce Upon The Crossâ€ giving everyone exactly what they came for!
With the Mosh pit in full flight, Deicide rolled thru a number of hard, fast death metal favorites including â€œSerpents of the Light,â€ â€œTrifixion,â€ â€œThey Are the Children of the Underworld,â€ and â€œDead but Dreaming.â€ Towards the end of their set, a fan called out to hear â€œLunatic of Godâ€™s Creationâ€ for Charlie, which the guys just destroyed! Deicide ended their awesome set with â€œBlame It On Godâ€ and â€œSacrificial Suicideâ€ leaving everyone in attendance thoroughly happy and satisfied. It was a great death metal set by an iconic death metal band. Deicide is Glen Benton (vocals and bass), Steve Asheim (drums), Jack Owen (guitar), and Kevin Quirion (guitar).
Providing the main support for Deicide tonite was Oregon based Season of Suffering. Â Touring in support of their new album, Evolve To Extinction, Their devastating forty-five minute set included a number of hard driving, brutal metal songs including â€œLay To Waste,â€ â€œPutrid Storm,â€ â€œSacrificial Masses,â€ and finishing off with â€œSeason of Suffering.â€ Their set was well received and set the stage perfectly for headliner, Deicide. Season of Suffering is Chuck Hudson (vocals and guitar), Ben Boynton (guitar and vocals), Ivan Wilson (bass guitar), and Matt Hicks (drums and vocals).
