Where to start? The Bottleneck was packed when I got there, and Annotations Of An Autopsy was already playing. They are the british version of Waking The Cadaver. Horrible. The crowd loved them, but 85% of the crowd were fucking asshole scene kids (Remember this, this will factor in to why i'm so pissed). After what seemed like a long time, Animosity came on. I'll admit that the musicianship was okay. There actually weren't a ton of breakdowns! But the vocalist is probably the worst I've ever heard. He was uncomfortably in the middle between high pitched and low growls and just did too much of BRIE BRIE (well, every band did that night except one [guess]). The crowd loved them. The crowd also crowd surfed a fuckton, which I kinda liked, but ended up causing some problems (remember this part as well, kiddies.) All Shall Perish actually is pretty talented on the guitars and stuff, but most of it was just by-the-books deathcore that is wholly forgettable. Hell, the genre is wholly forgettable. Hate Eternal came on and the sound for them SUCKED, but they made up and they slayed. Catacombs!
I left after that.
Here's why this concert sucked (besides the points I've already stated)
1. STOP CROWD SURFING TO GET ON STAGE THEN STAND THERE LIKE A DUMBFUCK TRYING TO SCREAM THE WORDS TO THE SONG WHEN THE SINGER OBVIOUSLY DOESN'T WANT YOU THERE. THE STAGEHAND GUYS PUSHED YOUR FUCKING FAT ASS OFF, DO NOT GO BACK UP.
2. Crowd Surfers, if you hit the mic and it fucks up Erik Rutan's mic/solo/mouth, you're not fucking allowed to go back up there. Or at least pick a different way to go. Jesus Christ.
3. There are a handful of people I see at literally every metal show, no matter how big or small. One of these guys brings his kid to every one. That's fine and dandy, but he thinks because he has a five year old, that it permits him to go directly up to the front and have his kid act like a tard. He's a nice guy and I try and make sure the crowd doesn't hit the kid, but when a 5 fucking year old kid gets up there and plays air guitar with Erik Rutan, the shit has got to stop. Especially after the THIRD TIME.
4. You scene kids/deathcore fans are a bunch of fucking faggots. I was yelling the words to Catacombs and this faggot ass kid in front of me with a shaved head, gauges, plaid shirt (looked like he just came from a Converge gangbang) look backed at me and was laughing at me. So of course I get as close as I can and scream the words into his ear. This fucker just leans on the stage with his head in his hands, just waiting for Job For A Cowboy to get on. What a queer. Kind of a dick move on my part, but after Hate Eternal was done, I yelled "FUCK YOUR DEATHCORE BULLSHIT, HATE ETERNAL KICKS ASS". One kid next to me (wearing a JFAC shirt [unbelievable, right?]) kinda said aside something to the likes of "huhuhu you paid for the ticket so you're helping this deathcore bullshit" which I kindly replied with "WHO GIVES A SHIT, THEY'RE GAY" or maybe I said "faggot" again, I don't really remember. Fucking terrible crowd. As I left, everyone else leaving had on Morbid Angel, Immortal, Hate Eternal shirts on. All that was left were gauges, hardcore dancing, and girl pants.
I also fell because I got pushed into a pit during AAOAA and skinned my knee.
