No Cyanide or All Nightmare Long? Those are the 2 best on DM. IMO.

How would you describe the sound quality? I was there Monday night and it wasn't that good (the ACC has always been feast or famine in that regard). During LoG I thought it was a case of the warmup band being shortchanged, but Metallica was only marginally better. My biggest beef was that the vocals seemed really buried.
Other than that, a great show.

Setlist for both bands looks good, though Unforgiven was played before Judas Kiss FYI. Still though, I thought it was a good set. We didnt' get Fade to Black but we got Blackened which the Monday show didn't

As far as the sound quality, I didn't think it was bad. The first couple of songs for Metallica it sounded like the drums were taking over everything, but from For Whom the Bell Tolls onwards it was pretty good and I could hear everything pretty well. Either that or I just didn't care cuz I was seeing Metallica for the first time.


I was so pumped when Lamb of God came on, and in my section, or at least the row I was in and the rows in front of me and behind me didn't give a shit. Some old bitch told me to sit down because she couldn't see, yet looked bored during LoG's set anyways, so i'm like "Fuck this, i'm still headbanging and singing along", and my neck was Gone by the end of their set, and then I realized I still had 2 hours of Metallica to look forward to

Either way awesome show, and maybe the best concert i've ever been to.

I thought the sound was great. There were like 2 or 3 time when it was kinda hard to hear Kirk's solos, but other than that I have no complaints what so ever. This is definitely the best show I've ever been to.

Lamb Of God was really tight, and Metallica... well, need I say more

They usually do those two but they were replaced by My Apocalypse and Judas Kiss in this set i'm guessing it's because they did Cyanide and Nightmare the first night in Toronto.

Solid set and i know i've brought this up on other Metallica threads but i just don't get why Holier Than Thou has been showing up so regular on this tour when it was never hardly played when they toured for The Black Album. It's just a so-so song and there's is so much better they can choose from. If it was part of the encore here and there I probably wouldn't mind it so much but the fourth spot in their set is always a heavier tune that gets you pumped up and HTT just doesn't fit that role for me.

Maybe it was where I was sitting (2nd row in the upper deck), but I was pretty disappointed with the sound. I've seen LoG 4 times & Metallica 5 times, and this was the worst sound quality yet. I still really enjoyed both bands though.

Meh, the first night got The Memory Remains in the 4th spot on the set. I'd much rather hear Holier than thou.

I like Memory better myself plus the crowd singing along with the "Na, na, na, na" part live is very cool. Because of that I at least understand why Memory gets played live still. I'm not quite understanding it with HTT though. I much rather hear Through The Never or Don't Tread On Me if they wanna do a rareity off The Black Album.

My other problem with Holier is it always seems to follow a song like FHTBT, Creeping Death, Harvester or something else like that and it just seems out of place following songs of that caliber.
