March of Brutality -- Atlanta, GA -- September 3rd, 2010
Date: September 3, 2010
Tour: March of Brutality
This was the probably my first concert that started with an amazing local band and then continued to get better and better with every band.
Tetrarch was a local band i had never seen, but they did a pretty good job and played with a thrash vibe.
Second was Bonded by Blood. This band made me think I had stepped back into the early 80ís. They were an amazing thrash revival band and this is where I like to see music going. They played fast as hell and shredded my face off.
Setlist (Not sure about the order)
Prototype Death Machine:rocker:
Exiled To Earth
Feed The Beast
Next was Holy Grail. They shredded on guitars while the vocalist bellowed in the likes of Judas Priest and Accept. I was again happy to see another band that knows its roots and can play like the good old days.
For All Eternity
Call of Valhalla
Fast as a Shark (Accept Cover):rocker:
Crisis in Utopia
My Last Attack
Fight to Kill
Fourthly was one of the monsters of death metal, Malevolent Creation. I missed this band back in July and now regret that I did. They were phenomenal and added some diversity to the night. I donít plan on missing them again.
Eve Of The Apocalypse
Multiple Stab Wounds
Living In Fear
Finally was Exodus. Even though some arenít a fan of Rob, I think he does a pretty damn good job. But Gary and Lee made the show. They were fucking fantastic and didnít miss a dam note. They topped off the night with an absolute bang.
The Ballad of Leonard and Charles
Beyond the Pale
Children of a Worthless God:rocker:
War Is My Shepherd
The Toxic Waltz
Bonded By Blood:rocker:
Strike Of The Beast
I got pics with Rob, Gary, Lee and other members of Malevolent, Holy Grail, and Bonded by Blood.
Bonded by Blood 9/10
Holy Grail 9.5/10
Malevolent Creation 9.5/10
I now know why metal bands don't come to Atlanta. You've got one of the biggest thrash metal bands from the Bay Area and one of the biggest death metal bands from Florida on a Friday night and barely 70 people show up??
I thought Bonded by Blood kinda sucked, actually...no originality whatsoever and the vocalist was really annoying. Same goes for Holy Grail, though they were a bit better outside the vocal realm.
Malevolent Creation was amazing. If I was more familiar with their material I probably would also regret not seeing them in July. They were heavy as fuck. I was headbanging the whole time.
Exodus was... alright. I thought the sound suffered during their set, especially during "Children of a Worthless God." (my favorite song of theirs)
"Deathemphetamine" and "Strike of the beast" were really good, though.
Even "Good Riddance" was very good, though I found it extremely insulting that they played "Downfall." :mad:
Also I realize Rob Dukes may not be an asshole, but he certainly looks like one with his dumb Infidel shirt and basketball shorts. I just can't get over how much of a fat douche he is.
I don't know if I'd see Exodus again. Probably not. Definitely Malevolent, though.
Also there was a band called Sadistic Ritual that played in Purgatory. Wow... just wow. Amazing, really. Think Kreator, Slayer, Dark Angel.
coltongsmith, I wonder if we saw each other? I was the skinny kid in the Slayer shirt.

I don't remember seeing you. I was the dude in the front with the Possessed shirt on. I didn't really look around at all though.
Yeah I saw you. You were on the rail the whole time so it's cool
Nice set, but damn did the crowd seriously suck. I think I saw you if you were on the rail during Malevolent. I was on the rail with a death angel shirt.
I've been going to shows in Atlanta since 1987, and I've seen worse crowds. For example the Death Angel show a couple of months ago.
I enjoyed Bonded by Blood quite a bit. I thought they captured the spirit of 80's thrash and won the small crowd over. On the other hand, I can't stress enough how I hated Holy Grail. I think I might recognize the shirtless guitarist from my gay porn stash.:D
This was my fifth or sixth time seeing Malevolent Creation, the first time being on their first tour with Devastation and Demolition Hammer. The first poster forgot to mention that they busted out the old classic "Injected Sufferage" for the first time in ages. It's always cracked me up that 'sufferage" (sic) means the right to vote, but they think it's something negative. Anyway, they ruled, as always.
My opinion of Exodus is affected by the fact that I saw them so many times "back in the day" with Zetro. I left after 3 songs with the raging douchebag on vocals the other night. I just couldn't take any more. I hated the set when they played with Kreator, and it was going in that direction. That said, I did enjoy them when they opened for Megadeth and Testament at the Tabernacle not long ago. It all depends on the material, I suppose.
I was at that death angel show too. Barely 40 people there
I thought they were much better at megadeth too.
