I was there - all in all a great night of thrash. The Fillmore is an excellent venue; old guys like me can hang on the 2nd level and get a good view of the stage and avoid flying boots.

Death Angel was great - too bad only a handful of songs.

Testament simply tore through their set - no BS, everyone completely comfortable, awesome set list. Eric's custom Dean guitar is sweet - I know Alex gets all the hype but Eric is the driving force behind their sound.

Joey did sound very good - I was surprised. I disagree that Joey worked the crowd well - I thought he was kinda boring.

I agree with this - fun songs to sing along to as well.

I haven't seen Anthrax in over 18 years, so I had no idea what to expect. Following that Testament set has to be daunting. They started out strong, but I thought they faded a bit in the middle. Too many lame extended song finishes. They did have a strong end to their set though, mostly thanks to Among The Living.

I believe they played 2 verses of Refuse/Resist - that was cool.

Like most, I think they could have added 2 more tunes for us. Pretty much anything would have done...

And to the guy I was chatting with who said I was crazy that I saw the Sound of White Noise tour in 1993 ("Nahhh, that album came out in like 2001!"), please go check the date on your CD case and suck it.
