So I figured its not often the Doomriders make it out west, so I swallowed my pride and asked my roommate to loan me the $4 for bus money so I could get out for this. After getting inside and suffering through 45 minutes of homo chest-beating double-bass ridden death mehtal blasting over the PA, Doomriders finally took the stage and kicked ass. Huge tone, loud, energetic, tight, and above all fun. They played a good mix of songs from the 2 albums, and people up front were really into it, as was the band. Setlist:

Heavy Lies The Crown
Come Alive
Bear Witness
Mercy
Lions
The Equalizer
The Chase
Fuck This Shit
Deathbox
Black Thunder
Jealous God

Don't care for Skeletonwitch so I peaced out after the set with my ears ringing and head spinning. However, my night was far from over. In my post show haze/general retardation I somehow missed the stop I was supposed to get off at to transfer buses. By the time I realized and get off and ran backtracking to where I supposed to be the last bus had already come and gone. So with no money for a cab and no friends able/willing to come pick me up, one phone call for directions and nine miles on foot later here I am, exhausted. Totally worth it though :D

Last night was badass!!! im all sore and shit.

Doomriders can go to hell for all i care. their music was ok at best, but the band members can die in Iraq. Someone was crowd surfing and landed on stage, and the bass player thought it was his duty to punch the guy and throw his ass back into the crowd. since when is ok to punch your fans? And the guitar player was the worst of all. Same thing happened but instead he kicked the fan in the head, and you could tell the fan felt it. Then the guitar player being the cool guy he is told him to "get the fuck off my stage". Oh and he went up to my friend and fake "skull fucked" him. Fuck those dicks!!! Plus, the guy that crowd surfed and threw up right next to me and Andrew didn't help things either.

Skeletonwitch killed though. They put on an amazing show. it was brutal being in the front row the whole time, but well worth it. they are all amazing musicians and i cannot wait to see them again. But next time they better play Baptized in Flames.

That's because the retard landed on Nate's pedal board and fucked it all up, I'd be pissed too. They didn't care about people stage diving or crowd surfing just as long as it didn't interfere with their equipment, which is completely reasonable. Both times people got kicked/punched were because they caused problems for the band while trying to perform.

Yeah. Fuck those stage divers. Seriously. What's the fucking point of it when you are ruining the band's performance?? I for one was happy that the guitarist punched that idiot in the face.

I didn't have any problem with it except when that douche landed on Nate's rig and got a deserved boot to the head and another time when a crowdsurfer got sandwiched between me and the bassists monitor which is when he pushed me off to make room for the guy to get out (I was the tall dude with the red shirt in front of the bassist).

Still, punching and kicking fans for fucking up 3 seconds of your sound is never acceptable. plus the thing he did to my friend was just uncalled for. fuck them, they can go to hell.

Excuse me, but who the fuck are you?

What are you fucking five? Maybe when you are 18 you can join the service and go die in Iraq like all the other people you don't like. You fucking twat.

Waaaaaaahhh he hit someone, so fucking what? They deserved it. This is the band's livelihood, and especially for a lesser known group like Doomriders, they're flying by the seat of their pants every day.

Let's say, some guy just opened a business and a kid who was in his shop that he has never seen before decides it's a good idea to jump behind the counter and start breaking all of the equipment that he relies on to put food on the table and that he payed for out of his own pocket? Would he deserve to "die in Iraq" if he punched him in the face and threw him out of the store?

God damn this world I share with ignoramuses like you.

I think there is a difference between someone destroying a business, and a guy that was crowd surfing. If they don't like it, they should just not play heavy music. Stuff like that happens at metal shows. Playing a stage with no barricade has potential for stuff like that happening. maybe pushing the guy off the pedal board and back into the pit is ok, but punching and kicking them is never acceptable. And besides, the second guy, the one that got kicked, didn't land on any pedals from what i remember. The guitar player just flat out kicked him. And the other thing he did was 100% uncalled for. These guys were very unprofessional in their performance and they can go to hell! I stand by my initial opinions.

Seeing as it is a metal show, I don't really see why you're so surprised that he punched and kicked two guys. If you're crowd surfing, you shouldn't expect to be treated nicely.

Also, I'm not sure what all of the hate for Doomriders is. They really are quite a fantastic band. Granted, I haven't seen them live, but everyone that I've met that have seen them said that they just put on a fantastic, heavy and loud show.

I don't get surprised to see people get punched and kicked at metal shows, i just get surprised when the actual band does it to their fans.

True, they did sound great. I'm not saying their music sucks, I'm saying they suck as people.

Yeah dude I saw you get landed on. I got kicked a few times. And some girl was throwing punches behind me too! :hmm: She'd get super into it and fuckin start punching.

:lol: those guys that got on stage got wrecked :lol:

I'm hoping Addi is correct here, and I assume he is, because Doomriders are actually a pretty awesome upcoming band in my book. They make awesome music - I hope they aren't the tools that they may seem to have been to RJ and Andrew. Remember there are always (at least) two sides to every story, guys. Here's hoping Doomriders aren't peckerheads and keep on releasing kickass stoner / doom music!

Yo, I was at the show in Atlanta the night before, anyone else there?

It was FUCKING EPIC, as the 'WITCH always is, and we had the same setlist except one, we had an encore of an old song...

Only thing is I have no idea what it was because I got kicked out 3 minutes into Within My Blood for breaking a glowstick in the middle of the pit....Oops!!!!

Yeah the kicking was like "whoa that kinda sucks but whatever." Understandable but never really acceptable.

I swear I've seen so many people with that guitar! I think Guitar Center Hollywood just rents that thing out.
