   DEICIDE - ARKHON INFAUSTUS - DARKDAYRISING
Patronat - Haarlem (NL)

It's Halloween, to some Samhain to others it doesn't matter. There's no better way to spend it than going to concert. Not just any concert, a concert featuring Deicide, Arkhon Infaustus and Darkdayrising. The concert was awesome and we have no complaints. Here's a detailed version of the concert.

The night began with the opening band DARKDAYRISING. They possess an awesome mix of death, black and even thrash metal. The room wasn't so full at the beginning, but slowly more metalheads invaded the stage. Heads were banging and there were fists shaking in the air. Although the band had a bit of a technical problem when the singer's mic did not seem to function properly, he remained cool and with quick thinking started using the microphone of one of the guitarists. The band did an excellent job of warming up the crowd. They certainly have a future ahead if they keep this up. The songs were played tight and with ripping guitar solos. And they sure knew how to get a moshpit going, as soon as the singer announced there was a cover ahead everybody paid close attention, and then he belched "under a pale grey sky, we shall ARISE!!", and the pit went crazy! It was an amazing cover (Sepultura), it got the whole crowd psyched and ready for Arkhon Infaustus.

It took a long while but by the time this ARKHON INFAUSTUS hit the stage, the room was pretty much packed already. I was really interested in seeing this band live since I only heard a couple of songs by this four-piece. With two members who have half shaved heads and half dread locked hair grown till their lower backs, they took the stage. With the lead guitarist in the center of the stage, a vocalist/bass player and a vocalist/guitarist at both sides the band began their brutality. It left many people there with a loss of words and dropped jaws. I was very impressed myself at the brutality of this band, and yet it wasn't boring for a second. They unleashed a full blastbeated, double vocal assault on the spectators there and don't be confused, there isn't a back up vocalist. They have two lead vocalists which makes them sound even more aggressive, that's what a lot of bands can pull off in the studio but not live. Arkhon Infaustus played an amazing set and made way for the Headliners: Deicide.

After alot of waiting and waiting, headliners DEICIDE showed up from backstage. It was a death metal fan's dream, a great temporary line-up consisting of Glen Benton, Steve Asheim, Jack Owen (ex-Cannibal Corpse, Adrift) and Dave Suzuki (Vital Remains). Glen calmly walked up the stage and was clearly drunk. But that did not stop them from playing a mindblowing set. But before they began the set they opened with "happy birthday" for Jack Owen who became one year older that day. They quickly opened with the first track of their latest album "Scars Of The Crucifix". Between the tracks Glen was asked by a fan in front about the Hoffman brothers, and without hesitation he began to slam the former Deicide guitarists. Glen also told funny jokes between the songs. He really knew how to keep the crowd entertained. Everybody was all smiles in the room enjoying this unique line-up ripping Deicide songs. We also saw the professionalism of guitarist Dave Suzuki whose string broke in the middle of a song, he replaced that string in record time, tuned it and quickly returned to help Jack Owen who was still keeping the rhythm going. They played a very diverse set with songs that send the crowd roaring with joy. Some of the songs they played were: "Once Upon The Cross", "Dead But Dreaming", "Bastard Of Christ", "Lunatic Of God's Creation", "Serpents Of The Light" and more. After the show there was no doubt in anybodies' mind, the show was worth the long wait for Deicide. They certainly performed a memorable show that night.
