Suffocation, Belphegor, Abiotic, Necronomicon Staff Pick

When: Sun., Oct. 27, 6 p.m. 2019
Price: $25
The curiosity factor around this gig should be high for fans of extreme metal. The tour marks Long Island-based Suffocation’s first since frontman Frank Mullen retired from the road late last year. Can Mullen’s replacement match his distinctively manic stage presence? That’s a tall order, so we’ll see. But, if not, the band’s gut-punch delivery and hairpin musical turns are still likely to keep audiences rapt. Not to mention, sole original member Terrance Hobbs is a melodically engaging guitarist in a subgenre too often given over to anonymous tweedling. Austria’s Belphegor — a band as steeped in black metal as it is death — should provide a good-and-grimy contrast to Suffocation’s brutal clarity. Florida’s Abiotic and Canada’s Necronomicon round out the bill.
