Forever shaking Central Florida metal heads to lift their heavy lids and rise up in the pit, Obituary unexpectedly shreds through Sanford’s West End Trading Co. this week. So wake up before you miss their 30-year thrash, because this is not part of any tour or multi-city experience. This is a Florida-only exclusive date. Serious black-clad long-hairs know that last year the death metal legends unleashed their first new album in five years, Inked in Blood. It features 12 new songs performed by a recently shifted lineup that now includes a new bassist and lead guitarist to keep on slaying in 2015. Plus, fun fact: Inked was scrawled, mixed and recorded in their new hometown: Florida freak-show city, Gibsonton. But don’t mistake Obituary for a sideshow act – they’ll be the main event atop a fat bill whose weight we’d never be able to guess that includes regional heavy hitters like Shattered, Emporos, Thrashaholica and Lacerate. 

OBITUARY with Thrashaholica, Shattered, Emporos, Lacerate 7 p.m. Saturday, June 6 | West End Trading Co., 202 S. Sanford Ave., Sanford | 407-322-7475 | | $20-$25
