Lamb of God and Decapitated draw a really fun crowd of fans. Brutal music – check, brutal stage show – check, brutal moshing – check! Poland’s tech metal giants Decapitated opened the night playing a mixed set of new and old. Boulder Theater fans probably had sore necks the next day, head-banging the entire set. About two minutes into the Lamb of God set the barricade broke leaving 7-10 security guards holding back the crazed fans, like it was straight out of 300. Clearly the damage started with Decapitated but it ended when Randy stopped the show for 20 minutes while crews assessed and fixed the situation. The party started back up like a light switch the second LOG came back on and proceeded to lay waste to Boulder. Experience the show with these photos from Matthew Zinke of Matthewknowsphotos
