On this Wednesday night at Bogart’s in Cincinnati we were visited by the Inquisitional Torture Tour featuring Ne Obliviscaris, Butcher Babies and headliners Cradle of Filth. As the fans filled the venue Ne Obliviscaris started the evening with their brand of progressive death metal with screaming vocals hard hitting rifts and of all things a violin. They played a great set and began the night of metal for the fans that continued to fill the venue.

The Butcher Babies, led by two bad ass chicks of Metal, Carla Harvey and Heidi Shepherd, blasted on the stage into with “National Bloody Anthem”. This band is a great metal act that works the crowd into a frenzy where ever they go. Backed by their incredibly talented band mates, guitarist Henry Flury, bassist Jason Klein and drummer Chris Warner which always put on an incredible show.

By the time Cradle of Filth took the stage, it was filled with all the metal fans that could fit inside the already packed venue. As each member of the band came to the stage, they were greeted by the cheers and screams of the Filth fans. As the last member of the band came to the stage, the crowd erupted pumping their fists and chanting Dani, Dani, Dani….. The drumming began to thunder and the guitars rang out behind the screaming wails and growls of lead singer Dani Filth. Guitarists Richard Shaw and Marek Smerda began to play faster and louder in unison matching the powerful music coming from the rhythm section. The deep drumming of Martin Marthus Skaroupka and the pounding speed style of bassist Daniel Firth rounded out the band’s epic sound. Lindsay Schoolcraft not only added beauty to the stage but also background vocals and mythical sounds from her keyboard. If you get a chance to check out Cradle of Filth, Butcher Babies or Ne Obliviscaris while on the road do yourself a favor and get there early to get a great spot to see these great bands.
