Monday, Aug. 1

If you like the hefty stuff, this lineup is some significant Christmas-in-July type shit. Kicking off correct here in Orlando, this North American co-headlining jaunt from Goatwhore and Incantation is an all-star group of delinquent and antichrist tendencies. (Only Florida date, so be well prepared for group intimacy.) Goatwhore focus in extremity that touches on all finishes of the extreme steel spectrum — demise, black and thrash — though dying-steel lifers Incantation just audio guttural in all the finest ways, like churning organs and serrated blades. John McEntee and his fellow thrashers have even now got it right after a long time. Bewitcher are alongside for the trip way too, and make absolutely sure to get there extra early so you really don’t overlook Miami’s Caveman Cult, probably the finest war-steel ensemble currently consuming blood and grinding it out in these United States. — MM
