Lazarus A.D. just doesn't do it for me, there's just something about them that I don't like. I find it funny though that their lead guitarist looks like if my buddy Sam and I had a butt baby. haha
Like another person who reviewed this tour, I've been on the fence about Evile for quite some time. I know now that I dig them live to say the least. They just don't wow me on the scale that, say, Gamma Bomb or Warbringer do on recordings, I'm more inclined now to give their albums a few more spins to see if that has changed now. Sound-wise they were great, I was on the rail leaning towards stage right (my usual spot at Station 4) and it wasn't muddy or anything from what I remember.
Nachtmystium was the biggest surprise of the night for me. I saw them in December when they were touring With Marduk and their sound was so terrible that it was actually causing physical pain to my ears. That and after reading the previous reviews of their sound on this tour I literally had no expectations for them on this tour. BUT! Surprise surprise, they actually sounded great (well, as great as a black metal band can sound. haha), 10000000000000x better than the last time I saw them considering I could actually tell what they were playing. My only complaint was that their lights made it damn near impossible to take pictures, but I already have some from the last tour so it wasn't that big a deal. haha
Voivod played a good show. I was happy that they played Tornado . My only problems with their set was that Snake's Vocals were barely audible at times, that and they weren't as wild as I had expected them to be especially considering it was their last date on the tour. Other than that though It was a good show.
Kreator was fucking amazing. I've been waiting to see them for quite some time and they're my absolute favorite Thrash band. So as you can guess I went fucking ape shit the whole time (my neck is very angry at me today). Almost every song that I wanted to hear was played. They seemed to be having a little bit of sound problems at the start but it got worked out for the most part. All in all, a fantastic show. My top 3 songs played would have to be (in no order) Phobia, Enemy of God, and Extreme Aggression.
Funny story time!
At the start of Kreator, some asshole was trying to push in between my two friends and I. After a couple tries he actually tried to bitch to security that we weren't letting him have our spot. He tried a few more times only to be a couple elbows thrown at him, then left. Or so we thought... All of a sudden we feel a disturbance in the crow immediately behind us, I turn around to that ass hole getting drug out by security and a group of people getting back on their feet. Apparently that neanderthal tried jumping out of of one of the windows that allows the bar to the floor/stage in an attempt to get our spot I guess. How he planned on accomplishing it through those means is a mystery to the logical thinker but I still found the whole ordeal to be pretty funny. haha
