It’s been far too many years since Atheist had toured and now fans of the Technical Thrash Metal outfit have cause for celebration as the band returns to deliver their musical message as only they can. The Metal innovators would be supporting a live release entitled “Unquestionable Presence: Live At Wacken/Pieces Of Time (1988/1993)” and give NYC fans a rousing show that also featured Gnostic, Psyopus and The Faceless. The Agonist were also scheduled to appear on this bill tonight but ran into transportation issues that caused them to cancel. Despite the surprising change we were on point to bring the entire evening to the readers. Please click the logo below to be taken to our article on the main PiercingMetal.com site. We discussed and photographed all performers.
I didn’t remember to photograph the venue marquee this time around but oh well, how about a visual of Atheist’s Kelly Schaefer and Gnostic’s Kevin Freeman to make up for it? I thought you’d like that.
These two both pulled out all the stops in terms of Death Metal vocal power tonight. Nice work dudes.
We caught the bassist from Psyopus just returning from some quick Times Square shopping since he had the chance. This town has a way of making everyone so “touristy”. I love it.
