I'll review it in the morning, but this was an amazing show. Robb Flynn came out and did a song with them, but I can't remember for the life of me which song it was...


Jesus Christ this show was amazing. I was sorta bored until Heathen hit the stage, but once they started Dying Season the whole place kicked up. I was in front of Altus the whole time and they all looked like they were having fun. The bassist Jon Torres also had a killer bass face the whole set, but also was rocking out the whole time. Frontman David White is a natural entertainer, and his vocals live were top notch. They suffered some terrible sound problems throughout the night, some mic feedback and briefly White left the stage to attend to something. Despite the sound problems they were fantastic. Heathen are exactly what every thrash metal band should aspire to be, especially in a live setting.

Now, there aren't many bands that could follow the show that Heathen just put on, but Exodus certainly are one of them. Opening with the first two tracks of the album, there was little lyrical assistance from the crowd, but you wouldn't have known that the song was brand new. Everyone was moving just like they were playing a hit from the 1980's. Robb Flynn came out and performed a song with them, but I can't remember for the life of me what it was. If I had to take a stab at it, I'd say Metal Command, but don't quote me on that. Exodus brought out some rare ones on this show, and if Setlist.fm is any indication, they didn't play a lot of them at the other two record release shows. Impaler, Hell's Breath, Good Riddance and Metal Command all took me by surprise. It might have been too much for me to hope Zetro came out during Toxic Waltz, but it didn't happen again. Either way though, Exodus tore Slim's apart, and I expect to see them thrash the Bay up again in the future.

Oh lord, yes this was GODLY. I met Gary Holt before the show and yelled "We're not worthy!" and bowed. Then after the show I talked to David White from Heathen and we talked about the new album and how much I loved the songs they played from it. He then told me Heathen are gonna headline here in the Bay real soon, but he didn't know when exactly. I sound like a giddy fanboy and frankly I was.

Also Robb joined in on either A Lesson In Violence or Piranha, but I can't remember which.

Also, I'm pretty sure War Is My Shepherd was after The Sun Is My Destroyer and before Impaler. I remember shouting for WIMS after Blacklist and then Dukes saying "Yeah that's right, new shit!" or something to that effect. But if you took notes, then I'll take your word over mine.

I have the setlist, and that's what is there. The order did seem a bit strange...

Hell's Breath though...:wow:


Y'know, did I share the rail with you during Heathen? I was the kid in the Slayer shirt.

But they added SOOOOOOOOO much more. I like Deathamphetamine, but I'll let it go to add any of the awesome songs they added.


Metal Command vs. Deathamphetamine...let me think about that one...

True dat.

I don't really think that Impaler is necessary. I was never a big fan of it and I know that I'm gonna be thinking about Trapped Under Ice when they play it :lol: (assuming they're keeping this set for their US tour).

Pretty awesome set, but I was REALLY hoping for March Of The Sychophants off the new one. One of the best Exodus riffs in years!

Did anyone else who went catch which song Robb Flynn came on?

To be honest, I don't remember actually seeing him, but a guy next to me said he was on stage then Dukes said "Give it up for Robb Flynn"

Riot Act? Shovel Headed Kill Machine? Dethamphetamine?

How can they not know what some of their best songs are?

I know Toxic Waltz is fun but personally I'm sick to death of it. If they have to play a cheesy late 80's sing play Objection Overruled just to mix it up?

Nothing, and I repeat, nothing on Shovel Headed Kill Machine are among their best. Dukes era has been lame, and Exhibit B has been their best with him.

Personally I'd rather them play all of Bonded by Blood and a few select others but to say Dethamphetamine isn't one of their best songs is crazy dude.

That song is fucking EPIC! They make a video for Riot Act and never play it live?

I would rate both of those songs over 80% of those songs played.

Nah, they made much better songs before and better songs since.

All of Bonded would be amazing though.

There's a video of the performance with Robb. A Lesson In Violence was the song.
