For anyone curious about the set, I don't know what they've decided to rename the songs to, but I do specifically remember hearing music from Tetris, Super Mario Bros., Mortal Kombat, and the god damn Pokemon theme. Wow, the whole 45 minutes was gayer than 2 men having sex.
Now I get what they meant by people who "don't take the joke". Which is funny because beside being a joke, Powerglove's music is more technical and complexe than Firewind's. If you don't like seeing people having fun screaming Power Rangers, too bad, don't feel the need to bash them like your life is at risk.

I believe the stand-in bassist is or was a member of one of Gus's previous bands, Nightrage. When I went to Gus's meet & greet the guy was with him and the representative from Blackstar Amplification said he was from Nightrage.

Haha thank you. But yeah I don't know why their regular bassist wasn't there. I can't say that Firewind are a band that I listen to often or keep up to date on. They're a great band though.

1) I am very capable of taking a joke. I just don't like joke metal, ESPECIALLY if it's being taken seriously by so many people who just follow it because it's the new hip thing. Also, I don't just how good music is solely by how complex it is. I also don't care how complex music is in the studio if the band can't pull it off live - which from the performance I saw, Powerglove definitely could not.

2) Why do I fail at metal? I've talked to people who like Death Metal who still don't like The Absence.

Yep. Marios Iliopoulos. I looked it up. Definitely the guy they had playing for them.

And yeah, I have no idea what happened to Petros.

I don't like The Absence.

Also I like a lot of 'joke metal' and Powerglove suck.

Also I thought people were over Powerglove being the new hip thing (as I did with Lordi for the last 3 years, but apparently they are still around) so I am surprised at their high billing. If we're going by new-hip-thing-that-will-soon-be-forgotten Ghost should probably be playing this show..

I saw The Absence once and didn't like them either.
