On Friday, June 14th, Full of Hell, Genocide Pact and Primitive Man rolled through New York City for a sold-out show at Brooklyn Bazaar that served as a sweaty, cathartic, dreadlock-whiplashing showcase of the cutting edge of extreme metal today. Primitive Man brought the punishing industrial sludge; Genocide Pact, the intelligent and yet ignorant-as-hell death metal; and Full of Hell, the unhinged, spasmodic death-grind-noise insanity that has made them one of the most buzzed-about names in the underground in recent years. Photographer Mark Valentino was there to catch the action — see some of his standout shots below.
