Metalheads from all over Dallas packed into Trees Wednesday night to catch a glimpse at the legendary Cannibal Corpse. Arizonian death metal unit Gatecreeper opened the bill with their trademark mix of doom and death metal. Playing merciless songs like “Craving Flesh” and “Sterilization”. The quintet released a new seven inch titled Sweltering Madness today via Closed Casket Activities.
Soon after, Dallas’ own Power Trip took the stage. Both the band and crowd had a unique energy. Audience members sang along during popular songs like “Executioner’s Tax (Swing of the Axe)” and “Crossbreaker”. Power Trip is scheduled to tour with Trivium in Europe this spring.
When Cannibal Corpse played, the crowd did not hold back. Circle pits broke out left and right as the band worked through an extensive set list. The set list included new tracks old and new containing classics such as “Hammer Smashed Face” and new jams like “Code of Slashers”.
This bill still has plenty more dates, so be sure to catch the Red Before Black tour in a city near you!
