Great Night all around.
Opening local band Juvenile assassins kicked it off. Not bad musically, but way too loud. There style sounds somewhat like old thrash mixed with modern death metal.
Played 28 mins. C+
Sorry no setlist
Mantic Ritual (Meltdown)
Very 80s thrash sounding. Nice set although the singer/guitar player did not have his guitar for the first 2 songs. Seems it was outta tune when he first started playing and gave it back to a roadie to tune it. Thus after the intro, he stated "i don't give a flying fuck, lets play". After the first song he got his guitar back. For an old thrash fan, like myself, it was a throwback to great 80s thrash. Although, the singers vocals are an aquired taste.
Played for 33 Mins. B-
01-Intro/One By One
02-Murder To Death
03-Black Metal (Venom Cover)
Not a huge fan, but they somewhat converted me with their tight set. The singer/bassist has a ton of charizma on stage. And the guitar player can whip off a solo like no tomorrow. In the end they somewhat converted me to the dark side
Second time they have been to Vancouver and had a big following. Great sound.
Played For 33 Mins. B+
The main course, Destruction, did not disappoint. The best live concert i have ever heard from the German Thrash Masters. Vocals were crystal clear, great guitar playing and very tight on stage. The sound was so killer that both Krisiun and Destruction saluted the club soundman. He did MAGIC.
Vocalist had a ton of charizma and interacted with the crowd all night. They seemed to enjoy the night a lot. Maybe because it was a packed house with somewhere between 300 and 400 people. From what i understand, those are respectable numbers as compared to other places on this tour. Third time Destruction has been to Vancouver.
Played for 95 mins. A
05-Live Without Sense
06-Urge The Greed Of Gain
09-Thrash Til Death
10-Medley:Black Mass/Antichrist/Release From Agony
13-The Damned/Cracked Brain/Reject Emotion
14-The Butcher Strikes Back
15-Curse The Gods
16-Nailed To The Cross
All in all one of the better concerts i have seen recently
