Behemoth And Lamb Of God Live Photos From The Forum In Inglewood, CA

Slayer, Lamb of God, and Behemoth packed The Forum to capacity this past weekend, selling out every seat in the arena and filling the streets of Inglewood with black-clad, Satan-worshipping metalheads. A pair of scolding church protesters greeted fans arriving in the parking lots, but they could do nothing to spoil a lazy, sunny Saturday afternoon tailgate for the thousands pre-gaming with beers, booze, and weed by their cars.

Inside the darkened arena, things were very different. Behemoth and Lamb of God played brutal, ear-wrecking sets to the rapidly-filling seats and floor, metal beat blasts punctuated by blinding strobe lights and the ripsaw roars of the guitars. Behemoth ripped through a short but intense show, opening with “Ora Pro Nobis Lucifer” and using torches and incense to create a deathly atmosphere. Lamb Of God drove the arena into a moshing frenzy, starting with fan favorites “Laid To Rest” and “Now You’ve Got Something To Die For” and finishing with a skull-snapping “Redneck.” SkullNBones was unable to cover Slayer‘s set due to a massive, multi-camera DVD shoot occupying working spaces, but their 20-song setlist faithfully covered almost all eras of the band and the sellout crowd proved that their 35-year-old formula is still one of the strongest and heaviest in the heavy metal world.
