Parasitic Extirpation Tour Kickoff

Concerts are best when you show up and end up knowing some people there. The kickoff show for Parasitic Extirpation’s tour featured an all-star lineup of some of the more noteworthy bands in the area. Once again, I thought I was late but ended up being really early. Suppose it’s better than missing a band.

Aside from Parasitic Extirpation’s tour kickoff, it was also Composted’s first show with vocalist Evan, bassist Tim, and the second show with the new guitarist Jimmy. This of course only leaves two original members, but the show must go on. First up was Scaphism debuting some new material and getting the crowd worked up. It didn’t take long for the place to start filling with people.

Goreality was next. This finally marked a year’s worth of trying to catch one of their shows after missing them or ending up at the wrong place. They were playing pretty much all new material and really kept the place going. They were followed by Hivesmasher and the floor started to get intense. Aaron jumped into the middle of it, and even after their set, he kept the place active.

Parasitic Extirpation started their set, and the place was already become a hazard to my camera. The moshpit was in full swing and the music was as brutal as ever. On an aside, you need to pick up their new CD: Casketless. It’s a really solid release and highly recommended.

The final band of the night (that I stayed for) was Composted. As always, the antics were raised. I brought a few packages of balloons, and in between photos, I was blowing up and tossing them into the crowd. A blow up doll also got about as much screen-time as the band as it was flying around the venue.

Afterwards, I spent a short while outside chatting with the band members and picking up CD’s from PE, a vinyl compilation from Aaron/Hivesmasher and one of the leftover New England Deathfest shirts from Mark/Composted. There were a few more out of state bands playing, but with the hour ride home at midnight, I called it a night. It was one of the more memorable concerts in a while.
