Death/Dark Angel – May 12, 1989
This was a great show even though Death didn’t play. Apparently their van broke down. It was my first time seeing Gene Hoglan live. Other than seeing OTT, a local band that I loved, seeing Dark Angel was pretty huge. I wasn’t really a Death fan at the time, that didn’t really happen until Hoglan joined the band. After that I decided to delve into their older material. Good stuff. After Darkness Descends, I lost interest in Dark Angel. This was on the Leave Scars tour and I didn’t really care for that album at all…except for the drumming. Gene rules. This show also featured Brett Eriksen from Viking on guitar to replace Jim Durkin. It was a great night made even more special by it being at the old Atlantic Beach Club. I loved that place and saw some really cool shows there. I also missed some really cool shows there!
