"How Can You Not Like This?!" Cannibal Corpse at the HOB Sunset Strip!



"How can you not like this?!" has become something of an in joke with a friend of mine, and the question aptly describes the absolutely monstrous Cannibal Corpse/ 1349/ Skeletonwitch/ Lecherous Nocturne concert that recently demolished the HOB Sunset Strip. This was, by far, the most insane show to have occurred at the HOB within the last few years; at least, those that I've attended, and you can read my full report of the show here.

A photo pass was arranged (as always, special thanks to Chad Bowar), and I took a ton of pictures, only a couple of which were published. Here are a few more, and you can always check out my Flickr photostream here.

Nice writeup! I'm still recovering from the carnage.

What a great show! That's what it's all about!

Nice work Dave, looks like a great time. This show skipped NYC and played out on Long Island, which was a shame. It was also the same night as Amon Amarth, which I ended up going to.

I think Skeletonwitch are one of the best live bands around (can't believe they're going to be on Ozzfest), and 1349 absolutely killed when they opened for Carcass. Looking forward to seeing them again. As for Cannibal Corpse, well, you pretty much said it all. Just about the end-all of live metal shows.

But really I wanted to comment on the upcoming Portal show you've got there. I didn't realize they were heading out west before they come over for MDF. Honestly, I think I'm more excited for the Gorguts/Krallice/Portal show in Brooklyn than I've been for any show in a few years. Talk about mystique. Looking forward to hearing what you think of that one...

Hi Atanamar,

The PORTAL show should be monstrous and MORBOSIDAD is one of the support acts. I'm not 100% on the show yet, but it should be interesting...

The new Ufomammut is easily the best album I have heard so far this year.

Never have cared for Cannibal Corpse. Just always thought they were just mindless noise.

Sorry, Mark, have to disagree, as Cannibal Corpse have written some classic DM albums. I will say, though, that they've written some clunkers, too.

The Ufomammut album is fantastic.
