Concert Review: Obscura, Beyond Creation, Archspire & Inferi at Oakland Metro – September 13th, 2018

“I’m surprised so many people are there early enough to see Exist, especially given that the show started at seven. Presumably, I also missed Anisoptera before them, since I will later find one of their shirts in the pit during Obscura‘s set. That doesn’t matter so much to me; I’m here for the first show of what is likely the best tech death tour that the US will see for a decade, hand picked by the big shots in ObscuraBeyond CreationInferi, and tucked into the middle, Archspire. What a time to be alive.” Death in Oakland.

Anisoptera – Spawn of Odonata Review

“California’s Anisoptera have a lot going for them. Or, rather, as of the likely publish date of this review, they had one thing: an opening slot for ExistInferiBeyond CreationArchspire, and Obscura when the tech-death mega tour blasted its way through Oakland. Jørn knows that’s a lot of pressure, and to make matters worse, the band released their debut, Spawn of Odonata at that very show.” Spawn begone.
