Hard Rock veterans Rob Zombie and Korn have been trekking the nation stage all summer long with In This Moment. August 28th saw The Return Of The Dreads tour nearing the end of its run, but not before stopping at the Xfinity Center just outside of Boston, MA.
In typical fashion, In This Moment hyped fans for an anything but tame evening of hard hitting rock music. The female-fronted act led by Maria Brink never disappoints with their diverse and high intensity performances. Combining newly crafted theatrical elements throughout "Black Widow" and "Sex Metal Barbie" but also classic tunes from their catalog such as "Adrenalize" and "Blood." After the short but sweet set from ITM all that could be said was the band delivered.
With much anticipation brewing from his hometown crowd, Rob Zombie took the stage with ferocity. Selecting hits from his 2016, The Electric Warlock Acid Witch Satanic Orgy Celebration Dispenser (yeah, you read that right), such as "The Hideous Exhibitions of a Dedicated Gore Whore" and "Well, Everybody's Fucking in a U.F.O." As fans have grown to expect, Rob Zombie graced Xfinity Center with both a highly entertaining and slightly display of arena rock anthems.
Without further adieu, the nu-metal heroes in Korn took the stage to close out the evening. Teasing fans one member at a time until vocalist Jonathan Davis grabbed his custom mic (pictured above), the band enter Mansfield with commanding force. Musically, the band are now back to a nearly original line-up with the relatively recent return of guitarist and Love and Death front-man Brian "Head" Welch. Welch's contribution to the band has helped revitalize the band's original tenacity evidenced by two new singles from Sunday's concert "Rotting in Vain" and "Insane." The band's new album The Serenity of Suffering is slated for release October 21 via Roadrunner Records and can be pre-ordered at this link.
