DevilDriver -- Hollywood, CA -- July 25th, 2009

Normally I would write a much longer review for a show that started at 5 o clock and ended at 11.30, but at this particular show I hated the support bands so much that I won't even get into describing them. Note to self : check out all opening bands on myspace or their website before deciding to spend time seeing their show.
Why the fuck this tour is called 'Thrash and Burn' I have no effin' idea. None of the bands are remotely close to being called 'thrash' metal bands.

After spending the longest 4 and a half hours of my life, I finally got to see DevilDriver and they kicked ass
REALLY disappointed with their set duration though. They played for just 50 minutes. On the positive side, the new songs sounded good live.

1. End Of The Line
2. The Mountain
3. Not All Who Wander Are Lost
4. Pray For Villians
5. I've Been Sober
6. Nothing's Wrong
7. I Could Care Less
8. Clouds Over California
9. Die (And Die Now)
10.Back With A Vengeance
11.Before The Hangman's Noose
12.Meet The Wretched

For anyone who wants to know, this is the order in which the bands played and my ratings for each of them :
1. Thy Will Be Done (missed)
2. Periphery (missed)
3. Oceano 0/10
4. For The Fallen Dreams 0/10
5. My Children My Bride 0/10
6. Veil of Maya 0/10
7. Despised Icon 0/10
8. Emmure 0/10
9. Devil Driver 9/10

Well, except for DevilDriver it was my first time seeing all these bands. To me DI sounded the same as the other bands. The same double bass drums, the same guttural vocals, the same stupid hardcore pit dancers.

Too bad you missed Thy Will Be Done, next to Devildriver they're the best band on this tour. I bet a lot of people will miss them because of all the other bands in the middle of the lineup

I'll agree. Emmure has to be one of the worst bands out there and frankly I really don't think it's that close of a call.

2nd best? Well I heard from people that Thy Will Be Done were good, but I missed their set. Of the ones I saw, I guess DI were 2nd best and Emmure were worst.
