Basically a parallel thread to my other recent thread. Basically, it's pretty simple. These are NOT supposed to be the ten best shows you've seen, but the ten bands you are most happy/proud/satisfied that you have seen at least once. Whether it be because they broke up since, because they rarely tour (at least anywhere near you), or because they are just THAT good live - list 'em.

Mine:
01.Edguy (technically 4x, but this just because I saw them on the original Hellfire Club tour in 2004)
02.Saxon (took about six years of waiting, but it finally happened and it was worth the whole wait and the cancellations)
03.Tad Morose
04.Pagan's Mind
05.Blind Guardian
06.Gamma Ray
07.Firewind (x2)
08.Jon Oliva's Pain (x2)
09.UFO
10.Primal Fear (x2 in two weeks)

Also a big runner up to Jag Panzer.

Death
At The Gates (reunion)
In Flames when they were good (1999)

The only one I can think of off the top of my head is Propagandhi. Their US tours are very rare and very short, so I feel really lucky to have seen them.

I don't think any band that I really care about that I've seen has since broken up or anything like that. Just Still Remains and The Agony Scene :eyes:

01.Edguy (just because I saw them on the original Hellfire Club tour in 2004).

This! The reason Edguy is included on my list as well, not really in any particular order, and some of these bands I have seen a few times.

1) Savatage
2) Angra
3) Sentenced
4) Tad Morose
5) Edguy
6) Blind Guardian
7) Gamma Ray
8) Pagan's Mind
9) Y&T
10)Grank Funk Railroad (original line up Earth Day 1998) :D

Moonsorrow would have made my list, but due to the ever increasing popularity of Viking Death/Black Metal around here (which I don't understand) I am not sure how valid their place on this list would be as time goes on.

Yes! It was at the Troc actually. With In Flames and Dark Tranquility.

Killswitch Engage was on the bill also, but not a fan, so I blocked them out.

1. Black Sabbath - 1992, 1995, 1999. Dio, Martin and Ozzy. Seen them with all three Sabbath singers that counted which i'm most proud of.

2. Dio -1997, 1998. Given his recent health issues who knows if any of us will see him live again.

3. Alice In Chains- Opening for Ozzy in 1992, R.I.P. Layne.

4. Anthrax - 2003. They're pretty much dead as a band now and I probably won't get a chance to see them again.

5. Iron Maiden - 2000. The comeback tour with Dickinson. It was a pretty huge deal everywhere. It's been ten years but i'm finally seeing them again this summer:rocker:

6. Page & Plant - 1995. As close to seeing Zeppelin live as i'll ever get.

7. Ozzy - 1992. The 'No More Tours Tour' pretty much the last tour Ozzy ever did in top form. Have seen him live many times since then though.

8. Guns N Roses/Metallica/Faith No More - 1992 stadium tour and my first ever metal show. All three bands were on top of their game live and all were riding the biggest waves of popularity they had in their careers. It's really hard to beat this one.

9. Type O Negative - 1993, 2007, 2008. It's never gonna happen again so i'm glad I caught them when I did. R.I.P. Pete.

10. The Rolling Stones - 1998. At Madison Square Garden it really dosen't get much better than this and it's one of the shows I like to say i'm most proud of that i've seen.

Jungle Rot- Wanted to see them for years before I did, were one of my favorite bands almost since I first heard them, they never ever tour the US, etc.

Ghoul- Love Ghoul, they probably won't be playing much more, on top of the already small amount of shows they play, and I have been lucky enough to see them twice

General Surgery- Fucking awesome, Swedish goregrind bands don't come here to often

Abscess- at the time I did not appreciate this for what it was, but Abscess only do a handful of one off shows, and they rule, so to see them was awesome

Carcass- Arguably my favorite band, most likely the only chance I will get to see them

Iron Maiden- I realize everyone saw SBIT, but I love Maiden, and c'mon, that set was historic

Dragonforce- Because maybe one day seeing ZP will be like having seen Di'Anno

Turisas- First American tour

SomewhereInTime72
05-06-2010, 05:33 PM
1. Iron Maiden - The specific reason I list them is because ever since I got into Maiden, I've seen them at least once on every US tour they've done (starting with GMETID). So, I'm proud of that.
2. King Crimson - Mostly inactive since 2004, save for a few select shows with Gavin Harrison as the 2nd drummer. I saw two.
3. Amorphis - Not such a big deal for Euro-people maybe, but they don't exactly come to the US regularly, y'know.
4. Helloween (with Gamma Ray) - Getting to see Gamma Ray and Helloween in the same night, and then the encore with Kai doing Helloween songs: awesome tour.
5. Queensryche - Not rare as a touring band or anything, but the Mindcrime (+ Mindcrime II) shows were damn awesome and I'm not sure if they'll be doing that again.
6. Opeth - Also not rare. But I've only seen them twice - On shows that were very rare. The chronology shows, and the recent 20th anniversary shows. :D
7. Heaven and Hell - They played a ton of shows, yeah. But the whole thing was pretty unique and felt special. Especially now that it's possible that the whole thing is over. :(
8. Mucc - Only played 2 headliners in the US ever.
9. Judas Priest - Just 'cause they're that awesome
10. Hiromi's Sonicbloom - Mostly just 'cause of awesome, but also because the show was actually in an NYU theater that was all amounts of kickass, instead of Blue Note.

A few of these shows must have happened before I was alive...

I don't really have 10 bands that I'm super happy to have seen, because I haven't been going to shows for that long...

ravenheart
05-06-2010, 05:48 PM
Guns N' Roses do a theatre warm-up show.
Opeth at the Royal Albert Hall.
Arena do an "evening with" in London.
Roadsaw do a Kyuss covers set.
Jon Oliva's Pain play more or less all of 'Streets' as a one-off.
Celtic Frost (twice)
The More I See (why? because it was in my home town and I've never seen a metal gig in my town before or since, and because they played to literally five people and still turned it on)
Metallica ('Death Magnetic' album launch show, of which there were two Worldwide)
Thunder (last ever headline show)
Iron Maiden (Clive Burr benefit show in a theatre)

Ask me again in a month and I'll say Evergrey play an acoustic set.

And in two months and I'll say Devin Townsend play all of 'Ziltoid The Omniscient'.

Hmmmm.... In no particular order..

The Big 4 - At different occasions of course, but I am still immensely proud to say iv seen all four of them :D

Trivium - Now that Travis is gone it wont feel the same anymore, and I seen them on the ascendancy tour, which is still one of my favorite gigs ever.

Still Remains - They've broken up since, so its cool I got to see them before that.

Down - Evening with show in support of 'Over The Under', INCREDIBLE show, very proud to say I seen it, considering it may not happen again.

Heaven and Hell - Because it simple might not ever happen again.

Journey - Just because.

Tenacious D - Again, just because.

I will be adding KISS to this as of tomorrow night :D

Sanctity (Sucks that they broke up, I thought they had a lot of potential)
Into Eternity (Love this band, sucks that they've been doing practically nothing lately)
Overkill ('Twas awesome to see such a legendary band)
Metallica (Favorite band of all time, seeing them for the first time on their first US tour since '04)
Slayer (Missed 'em a couple of times, so it was great so finally see the legendary SLAYER)
Iron Maiden ('nuff said)
Heaven and Hell
Van Halen (It's one of my least favorite concert experiences, mainly due to the shitty seats/crowd, but to see Eddie Van Halen and David Lee Roth onstage together was awesome.)
Symphony X (Being in the presence of one of the most talented bands of all time was mind blowing)

Honorable mentions:
Megadeth
Cannibal Corpse
Deep Purple
Joe Satriani
Thin Lizzy (Post-Lynott obviously, but still cool to see, even though I don't remember the show one bit)
Judas Priest
Whitesnake

I thought Sanctity was awesome whenever I saw them. They're also the band that broke the barrier for extreme vocals with me too, and opened the door for everything I listen to today. I still think Road to Bloodshed is an amazing album. I really would have liked to see them continue.

Most proud of:

Celtic Frost - circa 1987
Black Sabbath w/Dio - 1992
Slayer - 4 months after Reign in Blood came out 1987
Soundgarden and Pearl Jam - 1992
Pagan's Mind last year at ProgPower X

No clue. It was CF, Exodus and Anthrax at the Bronco Bowl in December of 1987. I was not going to be denied. I was a huge CF fan at the time. Lied and told my brother I had a ride home so he'd take me. Not fun calling my dad to come pick me up after the show. Totally worth it though.


I remember reading in recent years that that was the last show of the tour and they broke up right after. Then came the infamous Cold Lake album/line-up.

I've never seen people complain about similar threads like they do around here. Jesus, do people realize what it's like to be on virtually any board that's actually ACTIVE? Two topics with similar but different concepts existing at the same time is not a crime. Especially since around here threads tend to turn from their original intent and either into extended side-discussion or off-topic stuff after about 4 pages.

I would totally understand your point if the board was so busy it was difficult to keep up with and we wanted to minimize confusion - but as it is, who cares?

I have longed to see Evergrey at all for so fucking long at this point, I even had tickets to travel 160 miles round-trip to see them but it got canceled. I was actually just talking tonight about how I'd really love to see them do an acoustic show, because I think they do a brilliant job with acoustic adaptations of their songs.

1. After Forever, only a few months before they went on hiatus & then broke up.
2. At the Gates
3. Pagan's Mind
4. Decapitated, pre-accident with Vitek & Covan.
5. Heaven and Hell
6. Saint Vitus
7. Amon Amarth in 2007 (First headlining tour, and still the best setlist they've done in the States)
8. Freak Kitchen
9. Ministry
10. Strapping Young Lad (SYL gets the nod over the Devin Townsend Band because Devy plays some DTB material live.)

Super unbelievably jealous of The Green and Black for having seen Sentenced. :mad: What makes it worse is that I just looked up the tourdates, and that tour hit PROVIDENCE. Sentenced were ten minutes from my house, and I didn't know who they were at the time :mad:

YES!!!!!!!!! I was going to include this one in my list as well, but could not remember the details! SYL ruled that night! Although I thought Nevermore played too?

Edit: So I looked it up, no Nevermore on that date. But then Nevermore must have played that same week or something, because I remember them playing a lot from In Memory. Who did Nevermore play with? I wish I remembered all this stuff. I should keep notes! haha

Today SYL is one of my favorite bands, and it drives me insane that I've seen them before.... I would kill to be able to see them now.

Also I saw Black Sabbath on what is probably going to be their last ever tour with Ozzy, which was Ozzfest 2005.

What drives me crazy is that I went to Ozzfest '06, but came later in the day, so I missed SYL. I didn't even know of them back then, but now that I do, and knowing that it was their last tour, I'm pretty pissed that I didn't see them.

Yeah I'm pissed because I didn't like metal further than Ozzy, Sabbath, BLS, Dio, and Maiden back then, so I don't even have any memory of seeing alot of the bands that were on the second stage. I watch live videos of SYL all the time and think "Damn, I saw something like this, but have no memory of it. Fuck."

Blind Guardian - Because they awesome and great in concert.
Cult of Luna - These guys threw me for a loop opening for Mastodon and actually destroyed them. :eek:
At The Drive In - Because they no longer are a band and had tons of energy on stage.
ACDC - Because I always wanted to see them and finally got the chance in 08.
Slayer - Still Raining Tour because they played the entire Reign in Blood album.
Sepultura - Chaos A.D. Tour because they were still Sepultura.
Mastodon - Crack the Skye Tour cause I really love the album.
King Diamond - Because they don't seem to tour anymore and are great live!
Van Halen - I saw them back in '87 sure it was after the Roth split but it's still a show I'm proud I got to see.
White Zombie - It was my second show without my parents and I went with my sister and here boyfriend.

Not in any particular order

1. Dredg (Because now I know the guys)
2. Torche (One of the beast damn bands live ever)
3. Atheist (Because last year was their first MN appearance since the early 90's)
4. Novembers Doom (Because they rarely play shows)
5. Opeth (seen before Opeth got cooler in the metal community)
6. Iced Earth (My favorite Metal band)
7. Dream Theater (My favorite band)
8. Mastodon (Seen Crack The SKy live)
9. Between The Buried And Me (Seen Colors live)
10.Redemption (Because I named their live DVD)

Yup that was me. Memory is my favorite Redemption song I knew I had to include it in some way. I didn't think I had a chance, but it turns out I had what NVD, Ray and the boys wanted. Here's some pics of my DVD to prove it:

*I also got a personal thank you from NVD on his personal stationary. We had a few good email chats while I found out I won. I guess in one review of the DVD he actually used my review, but I can't find it anywhere on the net.


Yes I did Chaos In Motion tour 2007. Minneapolis, MN Such a great set. I really hope they'll make it back here sometime, as unlikely as it is.

Maiden33
05-07-2010, 09:17 PM
That's so cool. NVD and Sean Andrews are two of the nicest musicians I've ever met - hell, people I've ever met, period. The night my radio show had the two of them in chat and played "Snowfall on Judgment Day" in its entirety was easily the funnest an most successful show we've ever done. It was so cool that they stuck around in chat for over an hour after we played the album and just talked music with us and our listeners - and NVD did a Q&A Interview for us as well. I think in terms of talented bands that deserve to make it much bigger than they probably ever will, they are at the top of that list.

I wish NVD the best of luck in the future and am so incredibly happy his personal life seems to be looking up. I can only hope at some point I can eventually see them, as unlikely as it looks right now.

MPF
05-07-2010, 09:40 PM
That is incredible. That is definitely my kinda radio show.

When I talked with NVD through email, he seemed so down to earth and a great guy to talk to. I hope it will happen one day where I can meet NVD and the rest of the guys after a show shake their hands and thank them once again for putting together one of the greatest Prog Metal bands the world will ever know, and that in a small way, letting me be apart of it.

Seeing them live was simple awe-inspiring. even if it was a short 45 minute set. It was one of, if not the best under an hour sets I've ever witnessed.

1. Danzig w/ Behemoth - Blackest of the Black Tour '05 - First time seeing both Danzig and Behemoth, and during Danzig's set Doyle came out and they did 9 Misfits songs. AMAZING, that's probably never going to happen again

2. Ministry w/ RevCo - MasterbaTour '06 - Not only was this my first and last time seeing Ministry, but I was treated to a double Al Jourgensen set as he played live in both bands that night. The setlist was superb as well..... I got NWO, Just One Fix, Thieves, So What, Stigmata and Psalm 69

3. Ozzfest '05 - Rob Zombie, BLS, Iron Maiden, Sabbath w/ Ozzy

4. Both times seeing Heaven and Hell were amazing.... RIP Dio! The first was in '07 w/ Alice Cooper and the second was in '08 w/ Motorhead and Testament. Sign of the Southern Cross will always be one of the best live songs of all time

5. Both times seeing Type O Negative.... RIP Pete

6. Slayer in a fucking club on the Jagermeister Tour '05

7. Both times seeing Megadeth in a club, more notably the most recent time on the Rust In Peace Tour. Megadeth, Testament, Exodus!

8. The Gruesome Twosome Tour w/ Alice Cooper and Rob Zombie. AMAZING day the whole way around, and seeing these two perform on the same stage I walked across when I graduated was absolutely insane

9. An Evening With Down in '08 - the opening video was awesome and they played for almost 2 1/2 hours

10. Immortal on the All Shall Fall Tour - first time seeing one of my favorite bands... it was one of only four North American shows. They NEVER play around here


Honorable mentions:
-The Rock Never Stops Tour in '05 (I believe) with Cinderella, Ratt, Quiet Riot and Firehouse. RIP Kevin Dubrow
-Every time seeing Cannibal Corpse, especially in '06 w/ Dying Fetus and '09 w/ Behemoth
-Deicide in '06
-Every time seeing Gwar
-Both times seeing Metallica
-Both times seeing Opeth
-Vital Remains in '07 when Dave Suzuki was still with them

Definitely earlier than you did. I wanna say it was the tours for Leprosy, Spiritual Healing and Human. And yes, it was awesome. All I remember is being in the pit right in front of Chuck, who always played front and center, and at least one of the shows had basically no security and the stage was pretty much at floor level. I was screaming the lyrics to the Leprosy songs at the top of my lungs and right into Chuck's face, so loudly that I was making myself get out of breath. I couldn't talk for days after that. Good fucking times. :party::rocker::party:

No particular order

Blind Guardian - Because they awesome and great in concert.
Cult of Luna - These guys threw me for a loop opening for Mastodon and actually destroyed them. :eek:
At The Drive In - Because they no longer are a band and had tons of energy on stage.
ACDC - Because I always wanted to see them and finally got the chance in 08.
Slayer - Still Raining Tour because they played the entire Reign in Blood album.
Sepultura - Chaos A.D. Tour because they were still Sepultura.
Mastodon - Crack the Skye Tour cause I really love the album.
King Diamond - Because they don't seem to tour anymore and are great live!
Van Halen - I saw them back in '87 sure it was after the Roth split but it's still a show I'm proud I got to see.
White Zombie - It was my second show without my parents and I went with my sister and here boyfriend.

I remember Sadus opening for Sepultura on that tour. Sadus is still to this day the best speed metal band I've ever heard. Definitely one of my 3 favorite shows even though I wasn't really into Obituary then.

Sadus and Obituary was not on that tour I think you are thinking of the Beneath the Remains Tour in 90' (when you have seen so many shows I know it can be challenging to keep them straight :lol: ) I attended this was my lineup:

Clutch, Fear Factory, Fudge Tunnel Mar 21, 1994 they were supposed to play Columbus again Aug 7, 1994 but after the Atlanta, GA Aug, 05 1994 date Max had to have knee surgery so the rest of the US tour was cancelled. The supporting acts were Pantera and Prong for the this leg, which I really wanted to see!! :mad: Granted, I had already seen Prong before but I really wanted to see Pantera and this was one of the examples of why I never got the chance. :(

Only ones that stick out at the moment

In alphabetical order:

Atheist - First time they've came to Mn since I was born
Bob Dylan - I don't believe I need to say anything
Ozzy Osbourne - Seeing Ozzy is like the Mecca of heavy metal...
Project/Object w/ Ike Willis and Ray White - First time they've toured together in over 25 years
Robert Plant - I don't believe I need to say anything
The Rolling Stones - I don't believe I need to say anything


Soon to be added

In order of when they're coming:

Parliament Funkadelic - George Clinton could be kicking it soon, dude's like 70 years old and that's up there for a normal person. It's funked up that Bootsy won't be with them though...
Pestilence - Never come around
Iron Maiden - .....
Primus - Never come around and I missed them the last time
Phish (2 days) - Never come around, especially to the Midwest
Rush - They are my favorite band that I can actually still see live
Roger Waters playing 'The Wall' - Hasn't happened in 30 years, and it probably won't happen again.

I've seen a lot of the metal heavyweights around their prime -- Dio on the Dream Evil tour with Megadeth opening; Ozzy on the No Rest for the Wicked tour with Anthrax and Helloween opening; Maiden on the SiT tour (among others); Metallica on the AJFA tour...

Also saw Nirvana on the Nevermind tour; Pearl Jam on the Ten tour; Nine Inch Nails on their Pretty Hate Machine tour; Primus on their Sailing the Seas of Cheese tour; Soundgarden on the Badmotorfinger tour.

Saw Bob Mould and Soul Asylum when they were good. Killing Joke at a small club in downtown Ann Arbor on tour for Extremities, Dirt, and Various Repressed Emotions.

Sleater-Kinney at the Magic Stick in Detroit! Now that they've broken up, that's maybe the one I'm gladdest to have caught.

Roger Waters(He's performed all of the Wall and it was such a great experience)

Hank III(Fucking III is one of the best live performers imo, I love everything he puts out)

No particular order here.

KISS - Part of the reason I am into rock/metal music today and I never ever thought I'd get a chance to see them. One of the happiest moments in my life.

AC/DC - See KISS.

Iron Maiden - I had missed them the last time they came through here and was lucky enough to catch them on the 2010 tour.

Dream Theater - I feel lucky I got a chance to see them shortly before Mike Portnoy quit.

Ozzy Osbourne - The man is a legend, plain and simple. I may not have gotten to see him in his prime but hearing so many metal anthems was amazing.

Any time I've seen Rob Zombie - He puts on a fantastic show each time and he puts in so much energy. Always a good experience.

Megadeth - I'm putting the Rust in Peace tour in here and not when I saw them on the 2008 Gigantour. Rust in Peace is one of my top favorite metal albums and it was awesome to hear it live in it's entirety. Exodus and Testament were a nice bonus as well.

Alice Cooper - Another rock n' roll legend. Fantastic experience hearing all his rock anthems and the show he puts on is great.

Children of Bodom - This was my first show in a smaller club setting, along with Devin Townsend, Obscura and Septic Flesh. It was great seeing these guys in a more intimate setting with a smaller crowd.

Slayer - It's fucking Slayer. I don't need to say anything more.

Honorable mention goes to Motley Crue since it was my first real rock show.

I'll get to add Judas Priest to this list when I finally see them on the farewell tour. I also NEED to see Metallica at least once before they call it quits.

Mr. Bungle on their last tour in 1999.

And although I'm not too proud of it I've seen bands as opening acts only for them to become MUCH bigger than the bands they were opening for. Incubus and Finger Eleven opening for Primus come to mind.

2nd time I saw Ozzy was in the pit at Ozzfest 2010, Shot in The Dark was like a religious experience. Didn't have to pay for the wristbands either, my friend's uncle left early so we had pit for Ozzy and Crue for 28 bucks.

The best will be October 7th when I see Danzig Legacy :rocker:

Holy shit!!!! I didn't even think of that!!! How the hell did that slip past my radar???.

Well OK OK ok people, jokes aside. If I had to truly name a couple of bands that I am proud to have seen

-Carcass at California Metal Fest with Suffocation and Exodus as direct support. The best part about this show was that me and all my friends got into the show for FREE :D

- I think this one is pretty cliche but whatever......Slayer @ The Long Beach Arena August 30th/2010. Probably will go down as my 2nd favorite metal show of all time. A great way to end the summer for sure.

-What Makethemsuffer12 said. :D

But yeah, thats sadly all I can think of it. Pretty pathetic but oh well. Those 3 are the only ones I can think of...... :eyes

I'd have to think about this a bit, but I know for sure that TOOL would be on the list (suck it, Manks :fingers:). So would Isis and Burst, because they're both awesome as fuck and because they both no longer exist. Same with Death, obviously. Slayer would have to be on there, too, I think (primarily because I saw them in their prime...i.e., on tour for South of Heaven). Metallica, definitely - if for no other reason that the fact that they are of truly legendary status. Speaking of which...U2 has to be on the list - for so many reasons - as well. Bolt Thrower has got to be another one, probably.

So that leaves what, like two more? How the shit do I do that? I've seen Primus, Nine Inch Nails, Depeche Mode, Carcass, High on Fire, Baroness, Kylesa, Clutch, Russian Circles, Meshuggah, Giant Squid, Grayceon, Mastodon, Voivod, Exodus (in their prime), Destruction (in their prime), Motorhead, Nile, Behemoth...

I've been to exactly 100 gigs now, so I guess I'll make my first contribution to this thread:

1. My Dying Bride - They never, never, never play the States. Haven't since like '94. A friend from home flew to England just for the show. 'Nuff said.
2. Carcass - Never thought I'd get the chance to see them but then they reunited and I did. Best death metal band ever, one of the best shows I've ever seen.
3. Anaal Nathrakh - Similarly difficult to My Dying Bride to see in the States. Also saw in London.
4. Sparrows Swarm and Sing - They didn't exist for long, and I still hold that of the hundreds of live sets I've seen, theirs is my favorite ever.
5. Romance of Young Tigers - Saw them four times before they broke up, the last being my 18th birthday. Maybe my favorite post-rock band of all time.
6. Alcest - At the time I saw them they had only done a handful of shows total and only one or two others in America. Can't wait to see them again.
7. Isis - Saw them on their last tour before they broke up.
8. Immortal - Got into them a little too late to have seen them before they broke up, really really glad I got to see the reunion.
9. Wolves in the Throne Room - Suddenly easy to see with their extensive fall tour announced, but at the time (2007, right after Two Hunters dropped) this wasn't the case.
10. Iron Maiden - Not hard to see at all but each of the three times I've seen them has been a religious experience, reminding me why I love music. Toronto in 2008 especially stands out.

Aerosmith, Forest Hills, 1999: first ever concert, by my then favourite band. Pretty awesome, played some covers (snippets from Zep e.g.)

Metallica, Rock Werchter, 2004: first time seeing my heroes, amazing experience, many old songs, only two from St. Anger (title track & Frantic). Ideal weather, LOTS of people.

Slash, Graspop Metal Meeting 2010: made me realise how bad GNR is without him, and how great Myles Kennedy is.

To anyone who's seen Carcass, I fucking envy you so much.

Why? They weren't that good and charged 40 something bucks for each time. They played way too much material from Heartwork. I believe they only played two songs from Reek, a few from Symphonies and a few from Necroticism. It was fucking awesome seeing Bill Steer do the lead vocals for Exhumed to Consume, but that's pretty much it. The overall shows were awesome though. First time it was with Suffocation, 1349 and Aborted. Second time was with Exodus, Suffocation, Repulsion, Toxic Holocaust, Psycroptic, Gravehill and a bunch of other cool shit.

Slash, Graspop Metal Meeting 2010: made me realise how bad GNR is without him, and how great Myles Kennedy is.

To be honest, I think Myles is getting worse as the years go on. I've seen him in total five or six times with Alter Bridge and Slash, and every time he gets flatter and more whiny. He sounded best on the first AB album and hasn't sounded as good since.

As for Slash. Always loved his music; the Slash's Snakepit albums are two of my all-time favourite rock records. But he really doesn't bring that much to the stage. He's not particularly entertaining to watch (seen him three times in total with Velvet Revolver and solo), especially compared to DJ Ashba, and he's nowhere near as good a player as Ron Thal.

I'm probably the biggest GN'R fan here, and in absolute honesty, I wouldn't care if he did or didn't reunite with them. People get too hung up on the image and reputation of Slash in GN'R, when he really isn't that important.

I'll still go see him whenever he comes through, because I still love all of his music, but I go to a Slash show now to see the songs, particularly the Snakepit songs I never got a chance to see, not really for the performance, because that aspect isn't all that good.

Not one of my favorite memories overall.

Idk dude, Carcass is one of the best shows I've ever seen. I saw em on the first leg of Exhume to Consume, and while there was a bit much from Heartwork, they played most of Necroticism and a decent number off the first two, and they played them excellently. It was $30 at my venue but totally worth it.

Jungle Rot- Wanted to see them for years before I did, were one of my favorite bands almost since I first heard them, they never ever tour the US, etc.

Ghoul- Love Ghoul, they probably won't be playing much more, on top of the already small amount of shows they play, and I have been lucky enough to see them twice

General Surgery- Fucking awesome, Swedish goregrind bands don't come here to often

Abscess- at the time I did not appreciate this for what it was, but Abscess only do a handful of one off shows, and they rule, so to see them was awesome

Carcass- Arguably my favorite band, most likely the only chance I will get to see them

Iron Maiden- I realize everyone saw SBIT, but I love Maiden, and c'mon, that set was historic

Dragonforce- Because maybe one day seeing ZP will be like having seen Di'Anno

Turisas- First American tour


This needs some alteration . Jungle Rot aren't really good anymore and have toured a bunch, but at the time it was rare and awesome.
Ghoul should be replaced because they too aren't as good as they once were and after lots of CA shows and an upcoming big tour, it won't be that awesomely special. But the first time I saw Ghoul 4 years ago was, so I guess that stays. Mayyyybe replace them with Impaled since they now fill the "Ghoul spot". Dragonforce didn't pan out the way I maybe thought it did when I wrote this, so they are off. And who gives a fuck about Turisas, also off.

Adding in Portal, Roger Waters, Murder Junkies, Cannabis Corpse (because the show is the live performance in the Skull Full of Bonghits music video) and Agalloch because that still seems to be a big deal.

After December the entire list will probably be redone :D

Carcass - One of my all time favorite bands who I never got to see back in the day. Saw them twice on the reunion tour, both times with Suffocation, plus Rotten Sound at the Hollywood show. The setlist was awesome.

Morbid Angel - My first death metal show when I was 13. Covenant had just come out and David Vincent still ruled. I believe this was also their first show with Erik Rutan on guitar. Seen them twice since with different line ups, but that first time was a life changing event.

Avail - My all time favorite hardcore band. Saw them 8 times before they split up and every one of those shows was amazing. Technically "on hiatus" but I've heard some things that make me believe they're done. I wish I could see them one more time though.

Dystopia - Another band who never officially broke up, but they won't play shows unless Todd is able to. Seems unlikely to ever happen. Saw them 6 times between 1997-2000. Got to share the stage with them the last time I saw them, at Gilman St. in June 2000.

His Hero Is Gone - Saw them play in Matt Martinez's(Landmine Marathon bassist) living room on what wound up being their last U.S. tour. The cops showed up to break the show up, but HHIG played anyway. They played their whole set as fast as they could without stopping and finished before the pigs could come back.

Mr. Bungle - Saw them at an outdoor headlining show on two hits of acid right after California came out. A storm broke out after Dillinger Escape Plan's set and the show almost got rained out. Bungle wound up going on about an hour late, but they were phenomenal. The acid and lightning definitely added to the whole experience.

Nirvana - Saw them at the AZ State Fair about 4 months before Cobain died. Not only was it an awesome performance, but I had just moved here and made some life long friends that night. I'll also never forget the opening salvo of songs, Radio Friendly Unit Shifter, Breed, Drain You, my 3 favorite Nirvana songs!

Pantera - Saw them about a month after Far Beyond Driven came out. Crowbar opened. Pantera were on fire that night. Probably the last tour they did where they played relatively small venues. Never got to see them again after that.

Emperor - On the last(only?) U.S. tour they did before their initial breakup, right after Equillibrium came out. They played the Rialto Theater in Tucson, which is a rad venue, with Witchery, Borknagar, and Peccatum. One of the few black metal bands I like, and definitely the only one that was worth a shit live.

Regurgitate - At MDF in '05 and '07. One of my favorite grind bands, a definite influence on many of the bands I've been in. From what I hear they're not going to be a live band anymore, so I'm glad I got to see them when I did.

Ok. I just looked at my ticket stubs. The show at the House of Blues with Suffo, 1349 and Aborted was $51.50(41.50 plus $10 service charge) and the California Metalfest with all the other bands I listed was $35 before service charges, but I was able to buy a ticket from Rhett of Gravehill one extremely rainy night for $30. Here's the setlist I got for both shows(the first one didn't have Empathological Necroticism)

Inpropagation
Buried Dreams
Corporal Jigsore Quandary
Carnal Forge
Empathological Necroticism
Incarnated Solvent Abuse
No Love Lost
Edge Of Darkness
This Mortal Coil
Embodiment
Reek Of Putrefaction
Keep On Rotting In The Free World
Genital Grinder
Rotten To The Gore
Death Certificate
Exhume To Consume
Ruptured In Purulence / Heartwork / Carneous Cacoffiny

That is a great selection of the non Heartwork and Swansong songs, but there is way too much Heartwork. That's also fucked up that Ruptured in Purulence and Carneous Cacoffiny were cock teases and played as a medley for Heartwork. Seven songs from Heartwork, two too many from Swansong, three full songs from Necroticism, three full songs from Symphonies and two songs from Reek.

I never said he was lying for that point ;) I just feel they were a disappointment for playing too much of the melodic death metal songs when I went to hear some goregrind.

Was Todd the reason Dystopia won't play? I thought it was Matt? I'm seeing Mange and Ghoul in a few weeks and Dino and Todd are playing sets that weekend.

To the best of my knowledge, Todd is not in Mange anymore. I could be wrong about that. Matt is currently playing in the band Kicker. As I understand it, Todd is extremely fucked up on drugs and has some mental health issues. Dystopia won't play until he has his shit sorted out. I haven't seen him in about 5 years and last time I did he was sitting out front of the Blvd trying to sell records. I've met him countless times before that, but he seemed to have no idea who I was. Really sad. I hope he's getting better.

Ok. I just looked at my ticket stubs. The show at the House of Blues with Suffo, 1349 and Aborted was $51.50(41.50 plus $10 service charge) and the California Metalfest with all the other bands I listed was $35 before service charges, but I was able to buy a ticket from Rhett of Gravehill one extremely rainy night for $30. Here's the setlist I got for both shows(the first one didn't have Empathological Necroticism)

Inpropagation
Buried Dreams
Corporal Jigsore Quandary
Carnal Forge
Empathological Necroticism
Incarnated Solvent Abuse
No Love Lost
Edge Of Darkness
This Mortal Coil
Embodiment
Reek Of Putrefaction
Keep On Rotting In The Free World
Genital Grinder
Rotten To The Gore
Death Certificate
Exhume To Consume
Ruptured In Purulence / Heartwork / Carneous Cacoffiny

That is a great selection of the non Heartwork and Swansong songs, but there is way too much Heartwork. That's also fucked up that Ruptured in Purulence and Carneous Cacoffiny were cock teases and played as a medley for Heartwork. Seven songs from Heartwork, two too many from Swansong, three full songs from Necroticism, three full songs from Symphonies and two songs from Reek.

Not to nitpick, but I was at that House of Blues show, as well as their show in Tempe, and they did not play all of Edge Of Darkness. They played the intro to it leading into Mortal Coil, just like they did with Ruptured into Heartwork. I was really happy with this setlist. When I left I was thinking that if they added Empathological Necroticism into the set it would be damn near perfect, so I was stoked when they added that in at the Tempe show. Did you miss Rotten Sound at that show? They were the first band that night and they fucking killed!

Hmm, what was the running order of that show? With that set, I'd assume Celtic Frost didn't headline.

Also Procreation (Of The Wicked) was pretty much the heaviest song I'd ever heard when they opened with it in 2006.

I wish I had been able to get into this conversation earlier but since I fried my laptop with beer last week I've been out of the loop recently. I'll be back in a couple days. :lol:

This setlist just makes me even more pissed off that I missed them.

Inpropogation! Fucking Corporal Jigsore Quandary! Reek Of Fucking Putrefaction (the song :tongue:)! I love every fucking song on this list (except for no love lost, that one's kinda meh).

And yes, Necroticism makes me jizz everywhere. One of my favorite death metal albums ever.

I would've gladly paid 50 bucks to see this. (Although the California Metalfest show was the one I actually had a chance to go to, if I had my driver's license at the time :mad: ).

Whoever it was that said they saw Sigur Rós at Bonnaroo in '08 at like 1:00 in the morning, and that it was the most magical show ever... that's probably the ultimate show you should be proud of seeing. I can't think of any show I'd rather have seen than that one, except maybe Pink Floyd when they did Pulse.

I just looked up the setlist for that show, and holy god...

Avail - My all time favorite hardcore band. Saw them 8 times before they split up and every one of those shows was amazing. Technically "on hiatus" but I've heard some things that make me believe they're done. I wish I could see them one more time though.


GREAT band! I have seen them countless times during the 90s.

My list would be enormous if I were to include non-metal bands as well.

Since you mentioned a hardcore band, I will post a few select punk/HC bands I am proud to say I was able to see in their prime:

1. Type O Negative - twice. I saw Jaegermeister 2008, which was okay, and the last show I saw was their third-to-last show ever, also one of the best setlists I've seen. I was never more excited for a show than that one. They were (and still are) my favorite band of all time, and there's nothing like seeing your absolute favorite band in concert.

2. Danzig - three times. I saw the 20th Anniversary Tour, DRS 2011, and the Legacy set in Chicago, best show ever. I never thought I'd have the chance to see him, with all his nonsense about retiring, so I can really appreciate the shows I've seen..

3. Roger Waters doing Dark Side of the Moon in 2007. I know he toured pretty extensively for this, but with him doing The Wall now, DSOTM will never happen again.

4. Gojira. Three times. The first time was opening for Lamb of God in 2007, I hadn't heard them prior to that, and they blew me away. Then I saw the open for In Flames in 2008. Last time I saw them they headlined a bar in 2009 on an off-date of the Death Magnetic tour, it was one of the best shows I've ever seen.

5. Napalm Death - 2008, opening for Devildriver. they haven't toured the US in a while, kind of a life-changing performance.

6. Slayer - four times. 2006, 2007, 2009, 2010. I got to see them before they stopped playing songs from Hell Awaits, but, it was when they stopped doing real headlining shows in the US and started co-headlining every tour. But, they were all great shows, especially Unholy Alliance 2006, which was also my first GA metal show.

7. Megadeth - five times. Gigantour 2006, 2007, Gigantour 2008, 2009, 2010. Best show was the RIP tour, one of my favorite albums of all time.

8. Metallica - twice. 2005, 2009. Both times were great, but the first time was pretty unique. 11/15/05.

9. Immolation - 2010. My favorite death metal band. Even though they've been touring steadily for the past two years, they seem to have pretty poor attendance at their shows, which makes me worry that they'll hang it up after the next album or two.

10. Cynic - 2009. I saw their first US tour post-reunion. I remember it seemed liked like forever since I started liking them before I finally got to see them. Unfortunately, I haven't seen them since, but I'll try to catch them this November.

Bruce Dickinson on the Accident of Birth tour back in 1997. It was my first time seeing Bruce and he played 4 Maiden songs, Two Minutes to Midnight, Powerslave, Flight Of Icarus and ended the show with The Prisoner. Still one of my favorite shows of all time. Best part is I paid $7 for the ticket to see this show.

I forget what year it was but I got to see Mastodon open up for Gwar during the Remission tour. It was a 5 band bill and they were either the 2nd or 3rd band on. I had no clue who they were but I was really impressed by them, at times they sounded like a train wreck and at times awesome. Since I had no clue who they where I had no clue about any of the songs but there was one song stuck out that night that made me love this band. That song I later found out was called March Of The Fire Ants :rocker:

Yeah, sorry to say I thought they were incredible. I saw them at the House of Blues and then at a small venue in San Marcos. What a difference a venue makes because it gave me the opportunity to witness one of my favorite all time vocalists up close, so close in fact that I nearly hit his mic while headbanging. An amazing experience I will never forget.

2. Metallica (3x) Including The Big 4 show at Yankee Stadium in NYC.

3. Aerosmith (5x), but mostly happy I got to see them in their prime in '77/'78 before they a) got completely fucked up and b) went soft.

4. KISS - (6x) again, in their prime in '77 with the 4 original members. Also taking my kids to their first show to see them from the 10th row was something they (and I) will never forget!

5. Roger Waters doing The Wall. Jaw-dropping performance. The most $$$ I ever paid for a show and worth every penny.

6. Rammstein (3x) - always amazing and worth the money.

7. Joe Perry Project in a small venue after the Aerosmith "Train Wreck 2010" tour fell apart.

8. Foo Fighters - great show, but took my daughter for her 18th birthday and she loves them, so that was a great night for me!

Slayer - I feel very fortunate for seeing all four original members at this show as well. My mom escorted me to the show when I was 13 because she didn't know what went on at metal shows and wanted to know what I was into.

...Let's just say she started letting me go by myself from then on after seeing Slayer. :lol:

Iron Maiden - No explanation necessary.

Eyehategod - Mike IX was a huge inspiration to me as a vocalist and as a musician, and I've been a huge fan since I was 13, so meeting him (and seeing him twice + getting his signature tattooed on my arm) was pretty cool, to say the least.

Morbid Angel - David Vincent was the reason why I picked up bass along with the guitar, plus Altars of Madness is probably my favorite death metal record ever. Hearing "Lord of All Fevers and Plague" live sent chills down my spine.

Rammstein - It's the band that got me into rock/metal, plus they brought back years of German I had forgotten. Huge nostalgia factor there.

Skinny Puppy - Before I was into metal, I was into electronic music, and Skinny Puppy was one of my favorite groups, so seeing them live was really cool.

D.R.I. - They got me into harder music and harder pits and away from all the "false bullshit" I was listening to at the time.

Cannibal Corpse - They may be "baby's first metal band" for some people, but for a kid that grew up in a shitty town with no way to access the life in Austin only a few miles away, this was the band to see/listen to if you liked metal - not to imply that that's the only reason why I got into them or anything.

GWAR - Flattus Maximus was still alive, they played in a tiny little club the size of an apartment, and the barrier broke during the second song. Money well spent!

Exhumed - They changed a lot about what I considered metal to be (after the D.R.I. show, of course). Everyone kept telling me about Exhumed, "Oh man, ya gotta check them out!", "Dude, Exhumed is the shit man!", and so on. I decided to give them a shot, but I didn't know what to find on YouTube, so I forgot about it. Around a month later, I remember grabbing one of their records (I want to say either "Slaughtercult" or "Gore Metal"; I've since lost this record) and it blew my fucking mind.

...Man, I miss that record. :bouville:

03-24-2013, 01:38 AM
Metal Masters Tour - Judas Priest w/ KK, Heaven & Hell, Motorhead and Testament. Nuff said.

Saxon - One of the best shows I have ever seen, and who knows when they'll tour again.

Iron Maiden - Somewhere Back in Time and Maiden England tours, the greatest setlists ever.

Cormorant - got to see a phenomenal set and chat with everyone from the band before Arthur left. I've still got some good times lined up for the summer with Matt, Nick and Brennan though! ;)

Kyuss Lives - The Wiltern show that I saw had both Scott and Nick play bass and the band did a 2 hour+ set. Definitely something I'll brag about for awhile.

Exodus - First time I saw them they played for over 2 hours in the best venue in the bay, Slim's. The third time I saw them they played all of Bonded by Blood and had reunions with Rick Hunolt, Jeff Andrews and Kirk Hammett. Yeah.

Megadeth - They played My Last fucking Words. NO ONE ELSE GOT THAT SHIT BUT US.

Forbidden - I saw one of their last shows before Russ got all sadface and the band went on hiatus.

Sleep - These guys don't exactly tour like dogs, so I consider myself super lucky to have seen them once. It was a holy experience.

Pentagram - Now that Victor Griffin is no longer with them, I feel fortunate as fuck to have seen them with him.

It was an honor but the truth is I am not a big fan of punk. But even I know that it was cool to see those guys!!! It was Lollapalooza 96 with Screaming Trees, Rancid, RATM, The Ramones, Soundgarden & Metallica.
