Tampa, FL, death-metal kingpins Morbid Angel play their second local show since issuing a polarizing, industrial-ish 2011 comeback LP, Illud Divinum Insanus. Longtime fans shouldn’t worry, though: This set celebrates the 20th anniversary of 1993’s Covenant—not only the best-selling death-metal album of all time, but also the first to appear on a major label and arguably the subgenre’s artistic peak to date—with a start-to-finish rundown. It’s a shame that original drummer Pete Sandoval won’t be joining fellow core members David Vincent and Trey Azagthoth here, but with a set list this promising, there’s little point in splitting hairs.
