Some of those names are hilariously stupid. I wonder if Decrepit Birth will play longer than 40 minutes for once?

Why would I pay extra for early access to that? :lol: I wouldn't show up until right before DB if I went.

Oh god, not this again. Brutal, this show (along with quite a few others) are put on by this one promoter in the bay that books his friends' bands to open literally every show he puts on. Simply put, these bands consistently suck. Hard. If you see a bay area concert, whether it's a bay-exclusive show like this one or a touring package and it's put on by ManDown Productions, you'd probably be better off showing up late.

This pretty much. Although one of the openers, Hysteria, is quite good IMO. The promoter did the same "bay area metal fest" thing last year except with Forbidden headlining. I also remember them having Hatriot, Zetro's new band, on the bill then. Honestly, unless someone's like a diehard Decrepit Birth fan, this show probably won't be worth going to.

Thanks for letting me know, man. I had a feeling DB's set was going to be short as fuck anyway :hecho:

Sure thing. I don't know when you're gonna be in the bay, but there's gonna be a small thrash show in Walnut Creek on June 16th that should be a bit of fun. If I remember right, the lineup is Fog of War, Hatchet, Hysteria and a couple others.

Here from the 4th of July to the 16th of August but thanks! I put up my itinerary in a post in the Upcoming Shows thread today if you're interested in saying hi again.

Allegaeon is pretty cool.

Tidal Wave has better bands, and it's free.

This line-up is poopy
