Heavy metal imprint Metal Blade Records – who presently house major headbanging bands such as Amon Amarth, King Diamond and Six Feet Under and who once welcomed the likes of Slayer, Manowar and Cradle of Filth to their roster – are currently celebrating 35 colossal years of metallic supremacy with a US anniversary tour featuring just a handful of the label’s heavy-hitting, fan-favorite acts; Whitechapel, Cattle Decapitation, Goatwhore, Allegaeon and Necromancing The Stone.

The monumental three-week excursion came to fruition last week on the east coast at Boston’s Brighton Music Hall. The historic trek (sans Goatwhore, unfortunately) made a stop in New York City this past Saturday (Feb. 25) for an early show at East Village’s Irving Plaza. Doors to the metal matinee opened at 4:50PM and unsurprisingly the line of hardcore fans eagerly awaiting admission stretched down the street.

As fans trickled in, melodic thrashers Necromancing The Stone (ft. mems. of Arsis, The Black Dahlia Murder & The Absence) kicked off the night, discharging tracks from their debut full-length Jewel of the Vile. Tech-melo DM troop Allegaeon overwhelmed the now packed NYC locale, firing out select chants from their current Metal Blade offering Proponent for Sentience and more. Cattle Decapitation followed with violent shrieks such as “Clandestine Ways (Krokodil Rot),” “We Are Horrible People” and “Forced Gender Reassignment,” creating massive turmoil in the pit.

Tennessee rippers Whitechapel closed out the evening, marching on stage and immediately blasting out songs from their 2014 LP Our Endless War and their 2012 self-titled effort. The band went on to perform favored cuts off of their early albums The Somatic Defilement and This Is Exile, along with new slaughterings from last year’s Mark of the Blade. By 8:30PM, fans cleared out the venue leaving behind remnants of what looked to be of a war zone.
