Obituary spawn death-metal sounds tonight at the Haven

Posted By on Sat, Sep 8, 2012 at 11:00 AM


Saturday, Sept. 8 – Obituary

with Broken Hope, Jungle Rot, Decrepit Birth

6 p.m.

The Haven

6700 Aloma Ave.

Winter Park



Florida has a fuck-load of legitimate claims to the dawn of death metal. And seeing as how deep and wide death metal’s influence is today on heavy music in general, it’s safe to say that Tampa’s Obituary are a pretty big damn deal as one of the genre’s most indisputably canonical bands. Kicking off right here in Orlando, their first headlining North American tour in more than three years will feature the band ripping fan-requested material off their definitive first three albums in celebration of the 20th anniversary of their third LP, The End Complete, widely considered to be their magnum opus. In tow will be a black-hearted mob of equally misanthropic metal bands including Chicago’s Broken Hope, Wisconsin’s Jungle Rot, California’s Decrepit Birth and Chicago’s Encrust, all of whom will be looking to do you harm. – Bao Le-Huu
