Metal Fans Scene Report: The Best Live Shows So Far This Year in L.A.

8:47 PM PDT on March 30, 2018

To be a metal fan and to live in LA is to be truly blessed. Some of the best promoters and shows and bands are in our sprawling metropolis. Everything from backyards to DIY to classic LA venues you can experience live music practically every day. A couple big shows rolled through last month that I did not have the time to get to but I can share some photos now. On Feb. 26 at the Echoplex, Gore Metal Merchants Exhumed were in town in support of their new full-length Death Revenge on Relapse Records. Along with stalwarts Incantation and Phobia it was a night to remember, brought to you by Spaceland Presents and Church of the 8th Day. The very next day, Feb. 27, EYEHATEGOD and Corrosion of Conformity were at The Fonda Theater in support of Black Label Society. This was the last night of the tour with COC just recently releasing their long awaited full-length No Cross No Crown in January on Nuclear Blast.
