Cannibal Corpse Live at The New Daisy 

No resurgence of a venue that has a long history of catering to metalheads would be complete without an appearance from a band like Cannibal Corpse. Cannibal Corpse might not be the type of band you put on your car stereo while taking your grandma to Kroger, but the band's longevity is definitely something to behold. Personally, I've been a fan of Cannibal Corpse's extremely recognizable artwork since I was old enough to appreciate the artistic genius it must take to depict zombie corpses performing medical experiments on each other. While most bands that have been around since the '80s have gone through some kind of aesthetic makeover, the artwork created by Vince Locke for Cannibal Corpse is one of the few examples of a band's presentation being more recognizable than the band's music.

Shocking artwork aside, the Cannibal Corpse résumé is pretty impressive. Since forming in 1988, the band has released 13 albums, were accused of undermining the integrity of the United States by Bob Dole, and even made a cameo in the 1994 Jim Carrey movie Ace Ventura: Pet Detective. They've also sold over two million records, making them the best-selling death-metal band of all time. Not bad.

Touring with Cannibal Corpse is Soreption, a Swedish tech-metal band celebrating a decade of existence this year. Soreption's 2014 album Engineering the Void was released last year on Unique Leader Records, and the band has been touring extensively overseas and in the U.S. since then. Also on Wednesday's bill is Cattle Decapitation, who released their seventh studio album The Anthropocene Extinction earlier this summer. If grind, death metal, tech metal, (or just plain death) are words you use to describe your musical interests, the New Daisy is the place to be on Wednesday.
