Masters of Metal -- Homdel, NJ -- August 9th, 2008

Maaaaaaaaaaaaaaan oh man what a great night, hahahaha. I went with Brady (Overkiller), Mike (Div), and our good friend Matt. Also met a few friends from my school there. We left my house around 2 and stopped at a deli a few minutes until a trip where we had sandwiches ... these sandwiches would be the last things we really ate for the next 13 hours. Due to some traffic, we didn't end up getting there until around 4 - 4:15, where we just hung out and did some good old tailgating. I believe the gig started at 5:30, however we were a tiny bit late to get in because my friend from school had mine and Matt's ticket but he showed up a bit late, so we got in about half way through Testament's set ... which really doesn't bother me because I'm not really a Testament fan.

But anyway, about 15 minutes later Testament hit the road and Motorhead was being set up. I only have the Ace of Spades album, so I didn't really know alot of their set, but they were still pretty cool. Especially since Lemmy is, well, Lemmy, and it was very cool to see him there in person. Their set was pretty cool, it didn't get really too exciting until Mickey D did a badass 5 minute drum solo and then Killed By Death, and then the crowd was really getting rowdy. All in all Motorhead was pretty cool.

Then came out Heaven & Hell. I couldn't believe I was watching Ronnie James Dio, one of the greatest singers of all time (along with Robbie Halford, who was up next ) right there in front of me. It was really cool and their set was pretty badass. The band sounded great, Dio was spot on, Iommi was really workin' that guitar like I'd never seen anyone do before. So yeah, H&H was pretty good ... but they were still no match for the Metal Gods themselves ....

Judas F. Priest. My second favorite band of all time, who sadly I had never gotten to see live before. But my god, did they put on a show. The band themselves sounded great, and their mixing was done perfectly, everything sounded clear. And Rob, wow, Rob Halford was singing like it was nobody else's business. He sounded amazing, and he was hitting screams I had never heard anyone belt out before, not even himself on the JFP albums! Absolutely incredible, it was an awesome gig.

So we got out of there at around 11. On the ride home, at around 12:15, we're about half an hour from home and on Route 80, the biggest highway in the country ... and all of a sudden, Matt's car jerks and his 'Check Engine' and Oil lights come on and he can't accelerate or anything, so we have to roll across 3 lanes over to the side of the highway. His fan belt broke, so we were stranded on the highway. Matt call's his dad to come get us, but since we were a while from home we were just hanging out there for a good 45 minutes. It was very frustrating, but hilarious at the same time. I got a bunch of good pictures of that, haha.
