Full review- w. pics (http://heavymetalcowboysteve.blogspot.com/2013/04/anthrax-exodus-municipal-waste-shadows.html)

Can't see why no one posted already??

Holy Grail- RULED. My favourite of the night. Were corrected about Silver Spring VS Silver Springs. Sounded great, no real complaints

Shadows Fall- good, nothing really bad- but I felt they were kind of lackluster, as it was about the same as the other 2 times I saw them recently.

Municipal Waste- songs started out good, but got too chaotic and messy. Crowd loved them tho. I think I should like them cause I like Lich King and SOD (similar silly thrash bands), but I was unfamiliar with the songs. Confetti like a Kix show at the end

Exodus- way better than last times I saw them- so much energy \m/ and a better setlist too! The Crowd were pretty ape for them

Anthrax- very solid, nothing to complain about, except the horrible 'I'm the Man' and a meh cover ('Time'), the safest cover (AC/DC), and Madhouse instead of that SOD cover.

The fact that drum solos (or any solos really) exist in 2013 from well-established metal bands is a disgrace. A complete time waster that is 9 times out of 10 boring, unoriginal and enraging when you figure out another song could have been slipped in there.

100% agree. I can count on one half hand the number of drum solos I have heard and actually enjoyed. Now Guitar (usually great) and Bass solos (usually a rare treat), or Keys solo (usually a silly treat) are acceptable to me

The only drum solo that should ever be played is Mickey Dee's drum solo.

Mikkey is a beast. I could definitely watch him play a drum solo for hours on end and still have my jaw on the floor.

Sure, it's not like there's a guy by the name of Neil Peart who is a God on drums or anything;)

Rapsongs are rarely enjoyed by me. The whole rappyness of it makes the song atrocious. Frank did seem like he was pushing a lot of energy to it tho. I still thought it was horrible

In Charlotte the song just seemed forced and rushed. It really didn't fit well in the set. Joey changed the lyrics a bit and they weren't funny.

I agree most drum solos are pretty lame, a couple exceptions would be Alex Van Halen's drum solo (it looks so damn exhausting)! and the battle of the drum solos thing Godsmack does is pretty entertaining.

Peart, Dee, Terrana. 2 hours of drum solo and I'd still be not bored.

What Godsmack does isn't really a drum solo, it's an instrumental song.

I find the majority of rapsongs... hard to relate to/like. I cannot discount all of them tho.

But I will totally agree that that has to be one of Anthrax's worst songs. Ever.

I'd rather hear I'm the Man and especially Time over Antisocial any day. They stupid song just repeats the same word 35 f'n times. It's tired, it's overplayed and I would ahve left during it to beat traffic.

While I'm bitching (hahaha) Exodus not playing Dethamphtamine every single show blows my mind. I f'n love that song!

Sucks I had to bail on this show but looking forward to 2 great shows in the next 3 days.
