Summer Slaughter at Ogden Theatre, 8/16/13

SUMMER SLAUGHTER @ OGDEN THEATRE | 8/16/13 Kicking the slaughter off early before work hours ended didn't prevent fans from sneaking out of work a little early to get the mass-murder body-ripping brutal metal started. Those who were previously in docile work environments quickly acclimated to the carnage of metal that ensued, welcoming the savage handiwork faster than it takes to rip off a suit and tie. The intensity of over eight hours and ten extremely angry bands makes other large metal gatherings seem like a dainty afternoon tea with granny.
