Shit, am I the only guy here that thinks Slayer was the best that night?
True, a lot of the complaints I listed might not necessarily be Slayer's fault (so I guess my original statement where I said "slayer suck live" was probably a bit overblown), but that didn't really make them detract from my enjoyment any less.

Actually he did sound pretty good for the last few songs, it was mostly through most of SITA that he started sounding bleh. It sounded like he was practically just speaking through Blood Red and Hallowed Point, like a shy girl at karaoke.

Also WPB song vocals sounded like the WPB album... which I think Tom sounds pretty bad on. Honestly I was kinda hoping that the live experience would somehow make me see something I might have been missing about the newer songs, and it definitely didn't do it for me .
