About a month ago (4/20/2012), The Decibel Magazine Tour stormed through Seattle's El Corazon. The tour package featured Polish black metal powerhouse Behemoth's triumphant return to a North American headlining position, and saw support from a fine crop of equally talented opening acts. The support bands were of a top notch caliber, and varied perfectly in scope and style from pentagram touting, torch burning Watain, to the 70's sounding Devils Blood. The tour's openers really knew what they were doing.
The night kicked off with an unmemorable, local opener and less than impressive crowd, who seemed more interested in frequenting the packed bar than they did to see a local opener slog through sloppy dissonant metal. The Devil's Blood hit the stage to a more filled out crowd to much excitement and enthusiasm from the crowd. The band, which features a female lead vocalist, all sauntered onstage covered in fake blood and playing a slew of guitar riffs that seemed to be more at home within a bad 1978 acid trip than a heavy metal show. I must say however, that the band ended up winning me over with the vocalist's impressive range to a fifteen minute jam session in the middle of the set. This was a band that truly knew how to get a crowd warmed up and ready for a night of metal. If you have a couple of bucks I highly suggest picking up the band’s latest release "The Thousandfold Epicenter".
