PSEUDOGOD Was Hellsent From Russia to Destroy the Five Star Bar with Black-Death Metal

While Satyricon was kicking off their final US tour on May 13, 2018, PSEUDOGOD were destroying The Five Star Bar at the other end of downtown Los Angeles on the same night. Hailing from Russia, PSEUDOGOD has been taking the extreme black and death scene by storm. When I say L.A. is probably the best city in the city for metal, I'm not exaggerating. Besides all the small shows always scattered around the city, where else can you catch two great touring acts in one night right down the street from each other? Intense. Please enjoy these photos and long live extreme death metal.
