About a month ago now, it was Avenged Sevenfold with Five Finger Death Punch and Avatar as supports. Really enjoyed them. Biggest surprise came with Avatar, since I listened top some of their stuff before the show and thought they were terrible, but they really surprised me and put on an amazing show.


Next show is Download Festival next year unless a band I like announces some dates in spring next year.

Totality/Dysentery/Dehumanized/Internal Bleeding/Malignancy at PA's Lounge in Somerville. Awesome lineup (minus Totality) and awesome performances from everyone, but the place quickly filled up with drunk townies who spent the entirety of the Dysentery, Dehumanized, and Internal Bleeding sets hardcore dancing and ruining the fun for everyone, and the fact that someone threw a chair during Dehumanized's set, wound up hitting a dude square in the face and splitting his forehead open, and almost wound up getting beaten to a pulp before running like a bitch the minute he got the chance didn't help matters, and neither did the bad sound or the douchebag owner who was rude as hell to everyone even though we were all buying mad beer.

I last saw Belinda Carlisle in Wellington! She was in great form - looking fit and sounding fantastic.


This was at the Opera House where Peter Jackson filmed King Kong. It's actually a modest little theatre and at one point I turned around an thought: "Holy crap, I'm on the set of the Muppet Show!" It looks EXACTLY the same.


I want more 80s has-beens to make their way downunder!

Suffocation at the Palace Theater in Stafford Springs, CT. Even in spite of serious technical difficulties (Terrance's amp was acting up wicked bad) and a broken string later on, they still killed it because they're Suffocation and happen to be one of the best live bands around. Plenty of young bands who don't do much onstage stand to learn a thing or two from them.

I'm very glad that concerts have started up again for 2014. I started to go into withdrawals.


For the first show of the year, I made my way to Toronto to see Dark Tranquility, Omnium Gatherum, Exmortus and The Parellax. Exmortus absolutely stole the show with a fantastic set that blew everyone away. Dark Tranquility and Omnium Gatherum provided great melodic death metal, which made me happy.


Last night, I went back to Toronto to see Children of Bodom, Death Angel and Tyr. I LOVE all three bands, so I was extremely excited for this show. Tyr seems to get better every time I see them. Plus...folk metal is best metal. Just like when I saw them in November, Death Angel put on a fun thrash set that got the crowd worked up into a frenzy. If the crowd was already overly excited, Children of Bodom put them over the top. A nice hour and half long set of both new and older stuff. Any time I can hear Blooddrunk live, it makes me happy.


Here are some pictures!

I haven't been to a concert since Linkin Park last went on tour a little over a year ago, but I'm so excited to see them again in August with Thirty Seconds to Mars and AFI here in Chicago. This is a tour I've been waiting for. My 2 favorite bands Linkin Park and Thirty Seconds to Mars are finally touring together!

I saw Asking Alexandria, August Burns Red, We Came As Romans, and Crown the Empire last night at the Fillmore in Silver Spring. Would've saw Born of Osiris too but thanks to the Fillmore's misleading show times, I missed them.

Pyrexia/Malignancy/Aborted in CT. Bad turnout, but it was still a boatload of fun. Amazing performances from everyone, awesome setlists, and just a great night overall. My jaw dropped when I saw how ridiculously good Ken Bedene has become since I last saw Aborted. Kid's easily one of the best up-and-coming drummers right now.

April's been a busy month for me. I've been to three shows thus far, with another three coming up. Hurray hearing loss!


The first show was Kataklysm just last week. I'm a huge fan of theirs and for some reason, haven't had the chance to see them live. It was a great set and the crowd was very physical and very brutal. Made for a great night. Special mentions go to Aborted who were in support of Kataklysm. They put on a great set.


On Friday, I crossed a band off my bucket list by seeing Black Sabbath. Ozzy looks 200% healthier and happier from when I saw him in 2009. Geezer and Iommi are freaking gods. That's all there is to say about that.


Last night was a thrash night, having gone to see old school thrashers Destruction. They put on a great fast loud set that had everyone very happy. In fact, the entire night was awesome with Exmortus and Krisiun being in support. Exmortus, even though they were the third of five bands for the night got called out for an encore after their set. I've never seen something like that happen before. It was well deserved though.

Black Sabbath!

So, I was back at it last night and went to go see Iced Earth, Sabaton and Revamp in Toronto, thus filling my power metal quota for the year. Despite it being a Monday night, the sold out crowd was red hot and was definitely ready to have a good time. A great crowd elevates an already good set to another level. It was like that all night. The bands fed off the crowd which in turn made the crowd just that more excited and happy. It was a positive feedback loop of awesomeness.


It's nights like these that remind me why I love going to metal shows so much.

I saw Alter Bridge with Monster Truck opening in Baltimore last night. It was only my second concert, and it was amazing. They actually had Paul Reed Smith, founder of PRS guitars(which Tremonti plays), come out as a guest guitarist for their last song, Rise Today. It was a very memorable night.
