PHOTOS: Death To All, Obituary, Massacre—November 25th, 2014 @ Metro, Chicago, IL

As time passes on and more music being produced each and every year, it’s easy to forget what an influence that Chuck Schuldiner and Death had on the bands we enjoy today and even our very listening habits. From 1987’s Scream Bloody Gore to 1998’s The Sound of Perseverance , the 11-year span that had Chuck writing music was one of the most important and pioneering times that graced the metal that we know today. Thankfully, Death To All (otherwise known as DTA ) keeps the legacy alive by featuring members who had the privilege of playing with Chuck all those years ago. This time around, bassist Steve DiGiorgio was joined by the one and only Gene Hoglan on drums and Bobby Koelble on guitar, while Max Phelps proceeded to play the part of Chuck himself. On tour as well were death metal titans Obituary and Massacre , as well as Rivers of Nihil (who were unfortunately missed thanks to Chicago traffic).

The 2012 Death to All dates were performed by Death guitarists Paul Masvidal (‘Human’), Shannon Hamm (‘The Sound of Perseverance’) and Bobby Koelble (‘Symbolic’), bassists Steve DiGiorgio (‘Human’ / ‘Individual Thought Patterns’) and Scott Clendenin (‘The Sound of Perseverance’). The original string of dates also included drummers Sean Reinert (‘Human’) and Gene Hoglan (‘Individual Thought Patterns’), along with various special guests.

Completing the lineup and filling the massive shoes of Chuck Schuldiner will be vocalist / guitarist Max Phelps of Cynic / Exist.
