I've never had that. I will say the Maiden audience I was a part of in Toronto was a better experience than either I've had in Cleveland, but I wouldn't call those crowds "dead." Even during the mostly-new-shit set this past summer, the crowd was into it, or at the very least polite. Last night was a fucking abomination.
And yeah, Josh, I don't call one medium-sized pit (which I did see) a Slayer crowd. It should be 10,000 writhing limbs covering every square inch of floor and making the security guards too afraid to intervene. Or something close to that, anyway.
