Enjoy our live review and image gallery of 29 photos from Cannibal Corpse‘s Sydney concert at the Metro Theatre on Sept. 11, 2014 – originally published at lifemusicmedia.com.

When Cannibal Corpse last played Sydney two years ago at the Manning Bar, punters were left bruised, broken and scarred. If the line up for tonight’s show at the Metro is anything to go by, there’s sure to be a room full of battered corpses by the end of the night.

Italy’s Hour of Penance opened up proceedings with their brand of Behemoth-esque death that had the quickly-filling venue moshing. Having just been to our shores last year in support of Poland’s Behemoth, there were plenty of punters singing along enjoying the unrelenting riffing and punishing blastbeats – occasionally interrupted by crushing mid-tempo numbers like ‘Ascension’. By the time they reach their last track, the middle of the dance floor has opened up into a raging circle pit.

Live: Cannibal Corpse, Psycroptic, Disentomb, Entrails Eradicated @ Metro Theatre – October 6, 2012

Originally published at lifemusicmedia.com, here are our photos and live review from the recent Cannibal Corpse gig at the Metro Theatre in Sydney on October 6, 2012. The American death metal veterans were supported by Australian metal bands Psycroptic, Disentomb and Entrails Eradicated. In typical Metro fashion, the lighting was abysmal.

Australian death metal fans generally aren’t quite as lucky when it comes to high-profile gigs like their brethren who enjoy less-heavy strains of metal. You could probably blame the state of the music industry for the lack of international death artists all the way over here to our little patch of dirt in the middle of nowhere.

Therefore it’s a testament to the talent, determination and endless road miles put in by death metal legends Cannibal Corpse that Aussie fans have had the luxury of seeing the band live on our shores no less than three times in the last 10 years. However, despite the surprising regularity with which we have been able to enjoy Cannibal Corpse’s punishing live show, tonight’s gig at Sydney’s iconic Metro Theatre is no less special for it. The fact that the band is being supported by three Australian death metal acts tonight just adds to the impact.

First up is Western Australia’s Entrails Eradicated whose brand of super fast, super technical death leaves a half-full venue worth of punters with heads spinning. As if having two guitarists wildly sweep picking their way through a set wasn’t enough, their bare-footed, 6-string-weilding sweep picking bass player is enough to make this reviewer want to put the bass away and go become an accountant.

…It’s a wonderfully layered, ethereal experience that is as equally uplifting as it is darkly moving. There’s an incredible space in the mix that lets the listener virtually immerse themselves in the music – something very few bands seem to be able to achieve…
