Got to the venue a little after eight and heard sounds coming from the stage that I can only imagine a pig makes as it's getting anally raped. Turns out as I got closer to the stage it was just Suicide Silence playing;) As to how anyone can like that no song structure, rythmless noise is beyond me. During the last song the singer said that anyone who crowd surfed up to him would get to shake his hand and he only did that for like two people even though there were more that came up. That guy is a fucking asshole for that. Crowd surfing is dangerous, i've seen people get hurt doing that, and he gets people to do it then gives them nothing when they got up there like he said he would:finger2:

Anyways, on to the good portion of the night. Machine Head was great!! During the intro to I Am Hell they used a more death metal vocal effect. I know they're trying to make it sound more demonic but it just sounded weird to me. I guess i'm just used to the album version. There was a good sized crowd that was very in to the show. Singing along with everything, moshing, jumping and most of all headbanging.

Now this is one of the coolest things i've ever seen in my almost 20 years of going to concerts. There was a kid holding a sign up that said "Machine Head, let this 13 year old kid play Aesthetics Of Hate with you". Rob mentioned it to the crowd and asked if the kid had chops and he invited the kid up to the stage and Rob gave him his guitar to play the song. The kid fuckin nailed the song to, i'm not talking about just the main riff or anything but he played the whole damn song. The band and the crowd were very impressed. Plus, the kid proved that at only 13 he already has more musical talent than Suicide Silence. Rob just took the mic and walked the stage signing the song. Phil guided the kid while playing and Rob came over a couple times to check on him and smiled because the kid did it so well. I'm not sure if that was planned before the show or what but the kid did end up going back to the same spot he was in a few songs latter after leaving from the stage. Since I haven't read about that in any other review i'm guessing it wasn't planned.

I know this will piss off jhdeity when he sees them but they do play the child choir intro for Who We Are. If you have to take your aggression out on anybody because of that, try to do it on one of those annoying ninja dancers if you can:D

The highlights were everything but The Blood, The Sweat, The Tears and Bulldozer. I get that they want to represent all their albums though and those two songs did give me a breather so it at least served a purpose. All the songs sounded great and it was a very good show by Machine Head filled with headbanging goodness:rocker:

:lol: That's pretty awesome that they let the kid play. I hope a video of that comes out.

There should be since there were a ton of people who took out their phones to record it. Something should be up on youtube soon I would think.

:

I've heard from numerous sources that that guy is a complete asshole. I fucking hate the way he dresses, too. Fuckin faggy ass skinny jeans. Who the hell would wanna shake that loser's hand anyway?

On the other hand (haha), very cool review, man.

You can say a lot of things about deathcore, but I'm pretty sure structure-less and rhythm-less aren't some of them

No song structure, and rythmless noise. Are you sure you didn't see Sunn O)))? Or Aids Wolf? ;)

And I'm laughing pretty hard at the OP's hate of Suicide Silence!

Especially the "crowdsurfing is dangerous, I've seen people get hurt doing that". Greg Puciato would like to have a word with you and your concert tastes.

I don't hate Suicide Silence. That was just my first impression on seeing the band live. Their music is terrible but I don't hate them and they band isn't even a blip on my radar. In fact, i'll probably never speak of them again after this thread. I make jokes because they make it so easy to poke fun at them.

I stand by my statement about crowd surfing. It's the dumbest and most dangerous of crowd activities. Moshing and jumping have some control to it but crowd surfing does not. People are looking at the stage and them some idiot comes surfing up behind them where they can't see them coming. I mean just think about the stupidity of the whole concept for a minute.

There is nothing wrong with my concert tastes and who the fuck is Greg Puciato? Don't you know when you name drop somebody that it should be a name that people recognise right away:D

MH killed it last night. My highlights were Halo, Imperium, 13 year old Anthony, Locust and all the other new stuff. Great atmosphere from the band and crowd.

I love how some of these threads turn into a debate on whether these silly deathcore bands are good instead of the band who headlines that actually killed it. Machine Head was great. And Sanitarium is right. That 13 year old can play circles around the clowns from SS. And I don't think he means rythmless as in no beat, but as in no flow to the songs. Thats part and parcel with the song structure. It's just all over the place. The songs are stop and go, all those stupid breakdowns, and the screaming. It's like me and my friends who have little to no musical talent picking up instruments and playing. That's what these shitty bands sound like. And they keep taking up space at shows when a better band can be there. Or a band that's tolerable anyway. Maybe I was spoiled by growing up with 80s metal, thrash and NWOBHM bands. But I don't think that's the case. it just outright sucks. Usually I can find some sort of redeeming quality in a genre of music. This I can't. You know for whatever reason you guys like it that's your prerogative. I'm sure youre all cool guys who like different kinds of metal. I just don't get it.

This clarifies more what I what I meant by rythmless. It's funny you bring up the point about you and your friends just picking up instruments and playing because back in high school I was brifely in a band where we did that. We absolutley sucked balls with no music ability at all and we sounded like shit, just like Suicide Silence. It blows my mind that this is a genre of music now.

I'm glad I'm not the only person who noticed this.

Like I said, I get what they're trying to do with it but it did throw me off when I was trying to sing along. I think he sang it a bit slower than on the album to.

Because Greg Puciatos name is so popular in metal, saying you don't know of him is like saying you don't know who Bruce Dickinson and Rob Halford are. :tp::D

Cool review man. Yeah I already braced myself for the child choir being piped in. I'm hoping to be shitfaced at that point in the show and try not to let it bother me.

A funny thing happened when listening to Machine Head for the show. I'm actually looking forward to Bulldozer and BST kinda grew on me too. Pretty shocking actually. Who We Are is looking like the bathroom run at this point. hahahaha

That 13 year old who played with Machine Head last night was my son Anthony! He loves metal music and taught himself guitar over the last 2 years. I brought him to the show with his 10 year old brother. Have to say - that was an amazing moment and the guys in the band were so cool!

Yep I'll be there. You wouldn't be talking about the guy who runs 24-7 Entertainment would you? If you wanna do an MS meet-up I'll be doing the early entry at the bar right beside Ram's Head.

When I was in high school we'd beat up people who wore skinny jeans :lol:. Now they're everywhere!

J/K, I really don't care what people wear. Mitch just looks like an idiot cause he wears those slip on shoes, no socks, and his skinny jeans stop about 2 inches above the ankle.

Oh, yeah. He's got Toms and stuff. :lol: I just wear vans all the time. And they're "skinny" jeans, not "skin tight female" jeans.

That's awesome!! I was a few weeks shy of my 14th birthday when my dad took me to see my first concert. Which was Metallica and Guns N Roses with Faith No More opening at Rich Stadium back in the summer of 1992. It's great to grow up with cool parents:rocker:

The videos of the kid playing are up on youtube now. Here's the link to two of them. The sound isn't as good on the first one but you get the best view of watching him play:

Good shit, I'll be the short, fairly overweight guy in a black Lamb Of God shirt with the tour dates from this tour on the back. I should get there about the time the early entry starts.
