The Georgia Theatre will likely collapse on Dec. 9 when four of metal’s legendary bands take the stage, with Dark Funeral, Immolation and Black Anvil paving the way for Cannibal Corpse. Quintessential death metal, Cannibal Corpse often eschews from the fantasy and gothic imagery present in the genre, instead opting for egregiously graphic images and lyrics. The graphic nature of the band’s music has led to it being banned in multiple countries, as well as cited by former Republican senator Bob Dole as undermining the national character of the United States. That’s about the highest badge of honor in the death metal world.
WHO: Cannibal Corpse, Dark Funeral, Immolation, Black Anvil
WHEN: Friday, Dec. 9, 7 p.m.
