“Death To All Tour” Kicks Off In San Francisco, CA, Footage Available

The “Death To All Tour” kicked off yesterday night (June 22nd) in San Francisco, CA. The series of shows sees various Death alumni and guests unite to pay tribute to the bands material and their late frontman, Chuck Schuldiner; while also raising awareness for Sweet Relief.

Intronaut/Bereft drummer Danny Walker was brought onboard, at least temporarily, to fill in on a few songs for Sean Reinert (of Cynic.) Reinert suffered a ruptured Achilles tendon while rehearsing for the shows. Another last minute addition was Exhumed‘s Matt Harvey, who apparently filled in Obscura vocalist/guitarist Steffen Kummerer. Kummerer was allegedly absent as a result of visa issues.

As previously reported, participating Death alumni include:

Guitars – Paul Masvidal (“Human“)
Guitars – Shannon Hamm (“The Sound Of Perseverance“)
Guitars – Bobby Koelble (“Symbolic“)
Bass – Steve DiGiorgio (“Human“/”Individual Thought Patterns“)
Bass – Scott Clendenin (“The Sound Of Perseverance“)
Drums – Gene Hoglan (Individual Thought Patterns“/”Symbolic“)
Drums – Sean Reinert (Human)

According to those in attendance, the setlist for the show ran as follows:

01 – “Zombie Ritual
02 – “Leprosy
03 – “Within The Mind
04 – “Torn To Pieces
05 – “Left To Die
06 – “Suicide Machine
07 – “Lack Of Comprehension
08 – “Flattening Of Emotions
