City: Duluth
State: Georgia
Venue: Gwinnett Arena
Date: October 1, 2010
Tour: American Carnage

I got to the venue around 12:30 and was the fist person in line. The number of people there was very insignificant until almost the time for the doors to open. It seemed like their weren’t people gonna show.

First up was Anthrax and I was directly in front of Scott Ian. They did an amazing job and actually played a song for the fist time on this tour. Joey and Scott did great and didn’t disappoint. Glad they took “Only” out of the set.

Setlist
Caught in a Mosh
Madhouse
Antisocial
Indians
A.I.R.:rocker:
Metal Thrashing Mad
I Am the Law

Next up was Megadeth. This is my second time seeing Rust in Peace in its entirety and it was still great the second time. Dave was a little off vocal wise compared to last time but it was still a good show.

Setlist
Holy Wars...The Punishment Due
Hangar 18
Take No Prisoners
Five Magics
Poison Was the Cure
Lucretia
Tornado of Souls

Finally the band I came to see. :rocker:SLAYER!!!:rocker: I finally got to see this band up close and in your face. I was happy so see the entire Seasons album live and Aggressive Perfector was a great touch. They were just as awesome as I expected and I hope to see them many more times.

so little news out of the anthrax camp...they'd be smart to try and build some buzz about joey being back by announcing more shows, getting the album done...something!

i'd rather them add AIR in place of Antisocial and keep Only. curious to hear Joey sing it.

A.I.R. is a definite upgrade over Only. Not prejudice over Bush. Never ever liked Only. Welcome change.

It's funny how 1 song can transform a set from ok to epic. A.I.R. does that for me. I agree would rather have it in place of Antifuckingsocial but I won't complain. We beter get A.I.R. in Baltimore

I'm suprised you guys want them to take out Antisocial..I always thought it was a great cover and should be a staple.

Yeah, but what would you rather hear? Antisocial or something epic like N.F.L.?

Yeah I love NFL and actually hate antisocial. I expecially hate it when they make it a 8 minute gay sing-a-long when they could have played 2 more songs I'd rather hear like Now it's Dark or Skeletons in the Closet.

With all the great songs Anthrax have it's time to drop ALL covers, especially on an opening slot.

The only reason why they played "A.I.R." was because it was requested by Dave Mustaine. I have the actual Anthrax set list and it has "Only" written on it, but they just scratched it out.

Another thing I have to point out is Chris from Megadeth. They guy can play! When he is doing all those crazy solos he doesn't even look at his guitar. Really pay attention to him if your close enough.:rocker:

Good point..I still love Antisocial though.

Hm..well theres a date in Orlando tonight, we shall see if A.I.R. is still in, and I hope it is.

And yes Chris is amazing, when I saw him in 09, he looked directly into my eyes WHILE playing the TOS solo :eek:

where do I start?

First off, I missed Anthrax. I hate them, so I'm not too bummed ("I even shouted Anthrax sucks" really loudly :D) but I did want the chance to see if they were better live than on CD.

Megadeth was alright. Dave Cumstaine is such a loser though. My friend and I couldn't help but laugh every time we saw him on stage.
As for the songs: It was amazing to see "Peace Sells." That is my favorite Megadeth song and it was great live. "Rust in Peace...Polaris" wasn't as good as last time, though. Also, I dunno why he put "trust" and "a tout le monde" in such a limited-length set. They were quite boring and sleep-inducing.

SLAAAAYYYYEEEERRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!!! was okay. I saw them in Italy this summer and unfortunately saw them do the same set instead of their awesome European set with Hell Awaits, Chemical Warfare, and Silent Scream. Anyways, that show destroyed my extremely high expectations. The sound was off and it seemed like my favorite band nn the world wasn't the best live band in the world like everybody else said.

My thoughts didn't change tonight, unfortunately. To add insult to injury, I got a massive headache every time I headbanged or screamed the words to a song.
As for the songs: "Seasons in the Abyss" is still their best live song, despite the fact that barely anybody was singing the chorus :mad::mad::mad::flame::flame::flame::flame:
I also enjoyed "Dead Skin Mask" and "South of Heaven." "Raining Blood" is still decent live. (same as Italy)
"Blood Red" was amazing, though. Look, I've said it before and I'll say it again, but Slayer is much better at playing slow songs than fast songs. The fast songs just sound empty, while the slow songs have so much power and emotion.

Anyways, I hate to even think about it, but I may think twice about seeing Slayer again if they keep playing the same songs over and over. Hopefully they'll have a good set though.

It didn't quite compare to Clash of the Titans at the Omni 20 years ago, when there were 10,000 people, but I still had a good time.

I agree about Chris Broderick. It seems that he's slumming in Megadeth.

I like 'Only' it was one of their biggest songs and it's a nice way for them to acknowledge that the Bush era does exist even though Belladonna is back. But i'll take A.I.R. over it all the time:rocker: I don't mind Antisocial like some do and I don't even consider it a cover myself. Much like I see 'Am I Evil' as Metallica's own song I see 'Antisocial' the same for Anthrax. Plus, it's been a live staple for over 20 years. The set would just look weird without it.

Now that GTT is out i'm waiting to see one of their songs off POT to make it. I'm surprised that they haven't at least done IMW or BOTB yet since Joey got back.

Only is one of Anthrax's best songs. Even with Joey at the helm, they need to play more Sound of White Noise stuff.

if i heard correctly Joey said he would like to come back when they have a new album. hopefully this implies his involvement in the new cd and their willingness to tour more with him in the future.

I hope you're right. I'd love to hear some new stuff with Joey!

Looks like A.I.R. is staying, they played it in Miami last night. I'll be at the next show in Hampton, I'm really praying that they keep it.
