The Inked In Steel tour, which included Carcass, Obituary, and Exhumed, played one of the first shows of the tour in Tucson, AZ at The Rock. It was my first time seeing any of the bands live, but I knew with such legendary bands playing it would be an awesome show.
The first band on was Exhumed, and soon as they started playing the fans had a mosh pit going. The crowd really enjoyed their show, especially when a guy dressed as a surgeon came on stage with a chainsaw, and later a bucket of blood that he poured on the crowd. They played with a great amount of energy and technical skill and I’m really looking forward to seeing them again.
Next up was Obituary, and as soon as they started playing, everybody went crazy! During their whole set people were stage diving and crowd surfing. After all the shows I have been to at this venue, I have never seen one that rowdy. They definitely have dedicated and enthusiastic fans here.
Finally, it was time for the great Carcass to take the stage. They are all very talented musicians and know how to put on a great show that keeps the audience going and wanting more. Carcass‘ set was comprised of songs spanning their entire career including Delectable, Palatable Melanosis, Saporous Brucellosis, and Indulgent.
With the great turn out and all the energy from the fans and performers, this was the best concert I’ve been to at The Rock.
