Slayer -- Orlando, FL -- February 23rd, 2007

Okay here's my review of last nights show.

Pre-Show

Me and my friend got to the House of Blues a little later than we had wanted, but were still right at the front of the line. We met up with my girlfriend and her friends and waited for about two hours and the doors finally opened. Our plan was for my friend to go grab us shirts from the merch stand, and for me to secure a spot on the rail for us. The Slayer shirts were $35.00 and up, and I'm a little tight on money right now, so I didn't get one. The shirts were really bad-ass though, my friend and girlfriend got one. After maybe an hour of waiting, Unearth hit the stage.

Unearth

Well the lights dimmed and the PA started blasting their intro. It was a song from the pirates of the carribean score, and I recognized it immediatly. That was the highlight of their set for me. Then Unearth came on and went right into it. I wasn't impressed by them at all, but some of the crowd seemed to enjoy them. One thing I have to say though, their guitar player is the stupidest fucking guy I've ever seen. I wanted to run onstage and drop-kick him in the head. He would do push-ups mid-song, then get up and flex his 'muscles' and try and act like a total bad-ass but he was totally lame. If anyone has seen them on this tour (or ever) they'll know what I'm talking about. Anyway here's the set they played. I'm pretty sure it's correct but probably out of order.

Intro: Some song from POTC (can't think of the exact name right now)
01. Giles
02. The Great Dividers
03. Endless
04. March Of The Mutes
05. Sanctity Of Brothers
06. Zombie Autopilot
07. This Time Was Mine
08. Black Hearts Now Reign

Slayer

As soon as Unearth left the stage, the " SLAYER! SLAYER! SLAYER! " chants began. The unveiled the huge, awesome as hell, Christ Illusion backdrop, and started soundchecking the guitars. About thirty minutes later the lights when out and ' Darkness Of Christ ' came on over the PA. As soon as that main riff to ' Disciple ' kicked in, the crowd went apeshit. The entire show was a mad house. Crwod surfers left and right, moshing pits everywhere, everyone headbanging, it was absolutely awesome. It's such as rush, constantly being battered around while headbanging and screaming along, I can't really describe it. It was great to see all the old-school thrash veterans in there. During ' Bloodline ' this guy, musta been in his late 40's saw me headbangin' and screaming along grabbed me and was like ' That's right man! That's fucking right! ' and he started screamin' along too. It's great that a band can unite people of so many generations. After the show me and my friend both caught picks from Kerry and started headin' home. This was not the first time I've seen Slayer, but it was definitely the best.
