Anthrax at Summit Music Hall, 10/18/10

ANTHRAX
Cephalic Carnage • Havok
10.18.10 | Summit Music Hall, Denver

Cephalic Carnage talks a lot about its love for THC-related products on stage. "Lucid Interval," for example, is evidently about being totally stoned and sober at the same time. Just the same, most of the songs written by the band, at least those not written about other hedonistic pastimes such as compulsive self-love ("Persistent Genital Arousal Disorder"), address the folly of humankind. "Misled by Certainty," we were informed, is a kind of warning against being absolutely certain of anything to the point of not questioning even one's core assumptions.

KEEP WESTWORD FREE... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
