Slayer -- San Jose, CA -- October 30th, 2013
 
Got a ticket last minute for $20, any more and I would have skipped it. Gojira was great as expected. If it were anybody other than "fuckin SLAYER bro", they would've stole the show.
Obviously my feelings are mixed. Watching the first part of the show off to the side was pretty dull, half of the entertainment is being in the pit. Seems like nobody was missing the other half of the band, as Slayer is still in the background.

Speaking of which, since everyone just gets to watch Kerry King and Gary Holt headbang on stage, don't bother doing anything other than putting up a few different banners and upside down crucifixes on stage... I don't think I've ever seen a stage that boring at a show that sold 3,000+ tickets at 40 bucks each (before fees...).

Gojira was v good. Especially for free dollars. I think that makes for 5 Concerts I've attended for free this year.

Really nice Gojira set.

How are the pre-Seasons songs going over during Slayer's set?

I love the old school setlist and am happy that they're playing so many pre-Seasons songs, but a lot of the pre-Seasons material has been met with blank stares from much of the audience at the last few Slayer shows I've been to.

Just curious....

Seriously? That's a GD shame.

Wow, the old school set with Strike of the Beast added in.

Yeah, we got screwed on Monday.

You mean pre-Reign in Blood? I have no idea what you're talking about.

Have you ever been to a Slayer show before? They've never had a fancy stage production. It's always been pretty simple.

haha yeah, I've seen them at least have video once or twice and I always appreciated the giant cross made of Marshalls, but it just seems like they don't spend a dime more than they need to. That and the fact that they didn't just call it quits since they've been talking about hanging it up soon for years, it's obvious that they're trying to milk the Slayer brand for all it's worth.

I really hope Gojira isn't one of those bands that gets popular and then never plays anything from their older albums. It's kind of funny actually, they're playing all newer stuff and Slayer playing all old stuff.
