Every once in a while there is a lineup you know you can't miss. A lot of other people seemed to feel the same way, as the venue was pretty packed considering that it was a Tuesday night. Two of the most important bands in grindcore would be sharing the stage, along with some other great bands. To ensure I wouldn't miss anything I arrived early and waited for Attitude Adjustment to start. Although I wasn't really familiar with their material I enjoyed them a lot. There were plenty of great riffs and they sounded great. Also, Barney came out to do a song with them. If you have the chance to see them don't miss it.


Destruction's End
Dead Serious
American Paranoia
Actions Speak Louder Than Words
DSFA
Hunger and Poverty
Dope Fiend (w/ Barney Greenway)
Satan is God
In the Center
Johnny
Grey World


Exhumed was up next and by the time they came out the crowd had filled in nicely. As expected the pits were much more intense than at the Summer Slaughter tour. They sounded tight and put on a great show as usual, but Matt's vocals were too high in the mix. During "Limb from Limb" Dr. Philthy came out with the chainsaw, which they didn't do the last couple times I saw them. I was happy they brought back "Torso" and "Necromaniac" for this tour, and the Siege cover was cool as well. They're putting out a new album next year, so I'm looking forward to hearing new songs the next time they come around.


All Guts, No Glory
Decrepit Crescendo
As Hammer to Anvil
Slaughtercult
Torso
Limb from Limb
Distorted and Twisted to Form
Necromaniac
The Matter of Splatter
Drop Dead (Siege cover)


After them Repulsion was up. Before they started their set Scott said, "This has been a long time coming for us. We've never played with Napalm Death." They went into the opening track from Horrified, "The Stench of Burning Death," which got the pit going. It seemed like the crowd was a little smaller for them, but they still got a great response. They played all of the usual songs, but the highlight of the set was when Barney came out to do "Maggots in Your Coffin" with them. It was great to see Repulsion again and they put on an awesome show.


The Stench of Burning Death
Slaughter of the Innocent
Decomposed
Radiation Sickness
Splattered Cadavers
Festering Boils
Pestilent Decay
Helga (Lost Her Head)
Driven to Insanity
Bodily Dismemberment
Black Breath
Maggots in Your Coffin (w/ Barney Greenway)
Horrified


I was looking forward to seeing Napalm Death again as I hadn't seen them since 2008, but I was disappointed knowing they would probably have to cut some songs. Originally the venue's website listed them as the headliner, but then it was changed to Municipal Waste for some reason. They came out to loud cheers and began playing "Circumspect," and then segued into "Errors in the Signals." Something was off though. Mitch's guitar was too low in the mix, so it was hard to decipher the riffs. This continued for the entire set. However, they still put a lot of energy into their performance and Barney's stage antics entertaining. He's like an extremely angry mentally challenged kid on stage. The floor level was packed and the crowd was going insane the whole time. There were so many people that there was hardly any room to move, so anybody around the pit automatically became a part of it. The setlist could have been better, but hearing "Practice What You Preach" was awesome. Unfortunately as I expected they did have to cut some songs, including "Human Garbage" and "Instinct of Survival." Despite the disappointments, I was glad I got to see Napalm Death again, and unlike some of the other recent shows we at least got "Unchallenged Hate."


Circumspect
Errors in the Signals
Everyday Pox
Protection Racket
Silence is Deafening
The Wolf I Feed
Fatalist
Practice What You Preach
Quarantined
Dead
Deceiver
When All is Said and Done
Unchallenged Hate
Nom de Guerre
Suffer the Children
Nazi Punks Fuck Off (Dead Kennedys cover)
Scum
You Suffer


Municipal Waste isn't my thing, so I left after a few songs. I will say that their sound was great though.

I was pretty wasted for this. :lol: I drank a shitload of whiskey before my friends and I walked in. We got in there during Exhumed.

The Napalm Death pits were very violent. I have a decent amount of scrapes and bruises on my legs and arms. When I woke up this morning I felt every hit and fall all over again. :lol:

And during Nom De Guerre I had to race to tie my shoes in the pit during the buildup before the chaos ensued. I got it just in time. :tongue:

That was my first time seeing Repulsion and Napalm Death and they were both amazing.

I wonder if that was the problem I noticed in the show I went to a few days ago where I thought they needed to be a 5 piece band again. Something was missing that I couldn't put my finger on and maybe that was in. Great and very accurate description of Barney :lol:

This guy has a bunch of videos up. From the looks of it he filmed the entire show, but hasn't finished uploading everything yet.
