The destruction of this venomous group of metallers has left a lasting imprint in the city of Cleveland. Anytime Slayer plays in an open area venue i sure to bring havok on all that surrounds the venue. The Jacobs Pavillion at Nautica was no exception.
When Slayer was playing their most evil of songs (Angel of Death) a family oriented ship floated by to witness which was carrying over 100 or so people on board. Also a freight carrying ship floated by to witness this as well. That’s what to expect on a weekend along the Cuyahoga River.
Death Angel were electrifying, they were on fire. A shortened set but the intensity and their heaviest material was unleashed and the fans ate it up. Definitely need to see Death Angel again for a longer set.
Anthrax, known for their thrash as well seemed to play their hits and kept the crowd into the framework of destruction.
Well, what more can you say about Slayer that you have not heard in the past. SSSSSLLLLLAAAAAAYYYEEEERRRRRR. The standout
member was of course Gary Holt whom should have had a neck brace on after the show from the thrashing on stage. It was a dynamite show and showcased three metal legends at a great venue. They brought the destruction to Cleveland once again.
