Dethklok -- Kansas City, MO -- October 12th, 2009
 
Awesome concert! I thought I was going to miss at least some of High on Fire, but I got there in time to see it all. It was a great experience.

High On Fire was my first concert of 2008, and I'd been jonesing to see them again. While they didn't get a very long set, they left me (again) wanting more. They absolutely slayed and Matt Pike is still a beast on the guitar. He rips through solos like it's as easy as not brushing his teeth (:barf:) and the crowd ate it up completely. Frost Hammer was amazing, and Waste of Tiamat is my favorite live HoF song still. I can't wait to see them again. 9/10

First things first: there was a huge pit filled with hardcore kiddies fighting invisible ninjas for Converge. But to be honest, they're one of the least worst "core" bands I've seen live. Maybe that's because they honestly don't try to be metal, they are at heart a hardcore/grindcore/mathcore band. But I still don't get it. A lot of times it sounded like they were leading up to a huge moment where they'd kick in and the place would explode, but nine times out of ten, it just never seemed to come. However, when they kicked it in, I really enjoyed it. I guess I was expecting a DEP-esque type of craziness, but Converge wasn't terrible. More grind, less core. 5/10

I, at first, thought it was lame that Mastodon was performing all of Crack the Skye still. But as I quickly found out, CtS translate extremely well live and made for a really memorable performance. Sound trouble happened at the beginning of the set, but was fixed by The Czar. Speaking of that song, the 2 songs I liked the best from their set were the longest from CtS, The Czar and The Last Baron. Absolutely chill-inducing when heard live. And the brutality of their pre-CtS material as the encore was amazing. The crowd went insane during Mother Puncher. Awesome show. 9/10

Anyone who still doubts the intentions of Brendon Small and Dethklok just need to attend a show to see what all the fuss is about. The straight up melodic death metal approach from Dethklok really paired well with the prog-attack of Mastodon. I will say that Dethalbum I songs are better than Dethalbum II songs. But the crowd loved it all. Craziest pits I've seen all year. Brendon Small and his band are really, really talented. You can't help but headbang through their set. 9/10

a) How do you know Matt Pike doesn't brush his teeth? :eyes:

So I'm going to attend this, it would be the High On Fire/Converge/Dethklok show along with Mastodon?

How close were you to Matt Pike that you could see his teeth?

You don't need to be close at all lol

Nobody wants to hear the fucking Bit and High on Fire should be playing second, after Converge. End of story.

I was a lot closer when I saw them last Feb. and...it's just pretty nasty. But he makes Tony Iommi look like Yellowcard, mang.

The Bit was okay, but I definitely agree that they should've played something else from one of their albums.

And Converge failed to win over most of the people who weren't hardcore dancing. I thought they were alright.

Yea when I saw HOF w/ Opeth last year I made the decision (not that I'm an expert...lol) but Matt Pike has to be one of the ugliest dudes I've ever seen in my life no doubt but he is a def beast!!!

Thanks for the Converge setlist, had to look up what "Wolves At My Door" was. (Japanese bonus track wtf??) Cool to see they're playing the best songs from the new one too. Good review :party:
