Following a Gramercy Theatre stop on their ‘‘Blood Stained Earth Tour,’ UK blackened speed metal threesome Venom Inc., plus tour-mates Goatwhore and Toxic Holocaust announced a special “Brooklyn Bash!” concert, which went down at Saint Vitus on October 3rd.
As with their Manhattan gig, Venom Inc. performed a slew of Venom classics, counting the likes of “Welcome to Hell,” “Live Like an Angel (Die Like a Devil),” “Carnivorous,” “Black Metal,” “In League with Satan” and many others. The trio also played “Ave Satanas” and “War” from their debut full-length Avé, which they dropped over the summer via Nuclear Blast.
Goatwhore and Toxic Holocaust once again provided superb support, performing hits from their latest LPs, Vengeful Ascension via Metal Blade and Chemistry of Consciousness on Relapse Records, respectively, plus other callous favorites. The Convalescence (who return to NY soon) were originally scheduled to provide opening support, though the gang unfortunately dropped off the bill last minute.
