There was a lot of love in the pit last night for Kataklysm's concert at Peabody’s. No broken bones, no bruises, just some nudity and lots of loud music from the Canadian death-metal band, which is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year.

Openers Conducting From the Grave and All Shall Perish, who did about four songs each, warmed up the audience before the headliners took the stage around 11 p.m.

Frontman Maurizio Iacono invited the crowd to gather around the stage, and it drove fans crazy as they rushed closer to the group.

Kataklysm performed some songs from 2002's fan favorite Shadows & Dust, including one they never played live before, “Muse of Enlightenment.” That was a highlight from the show last night, as were "In Shadows & Dust," “Edge of the World,” "As I Slither," and “Crippled and Broken,” which incited one particularly drunk fan out of her shirt.

They finished the show with “Push the Venom” from their latest album, Heaven's Venom. It was a great show propelled by Max Duhamel’s impossibly fast signature hyperblast drumming. You could feel the connection between Iacono and Duhamel as they played off one another all night. —Terry Jozwiak
