Nile w/ Immolation, Krisiun, Dreaming Dead, Marasmus

Three legendary death metal bands. Probably the best pure death metal show I've ever seen. Nile and Immo were especially mind-blowing. Great way to kick off the year.

Highlights: Nile - Lashed To The Slave Stick, Kafir!, Sacrifice Unto Sebek; Immolation - Passion Kill, No Jesus, No Beast, Father You're Not A Father

American Carnage feat. Slayer & Megadeth w/ Testament

Nearly flawless performances and amazing sets from three of the biggest and most legendary bands in the game. Especially helps since Seasons in the Abyss is one of my favorite metal records of all time. Chillingly good concert.

Highlights: Slayer - Spirit In Black, Temptation, Aggressive Perfector; Megadeth - Five Magics, Poison Was The Cure, A Tout Le Monde; Testament - Dog Faced Gods, Practice What You Preach, D.N.R. (Do Not Resuscitate)

Mastodon w/ Between The Buried And Me, Baroness, Valient Thorr

Couldn't ask for a better concert to cheer me up on the day of Dio's death. All the bands were amazing and the technicality for Mastodon and BTBAM was off the charts.

Highlights: Mastodon - Circle Of Cysquatch, The Czar, March Of The Fire Ants; BTBAM - Disease, Injury, Madness

Enthroned w/ Destroyer 666, Pathology, Witchreign

If you told me four years ago I'd get a chance to see Destroyer 666 at one point in my lifetime, I would've never believed you. But it happened, and it was a (anti)religious experience. They didn't even play my favorite song, but every single song they did play was a highlight of the year for me. Enthroned closed the night with great classic black metal, Pathology was an enjoyable brutal death metal band, but D666 is where it's at.

Highlights: Australian And Anti-Christ, The Eternal Glory Of War, Black City - Black Fire

Vektor

For the longest time, Celtic Frost was far and away the best performance I'd ever seen. However, Vektor changed that. I've only gotten the feeling of "I can't believe I just saw that. That was legendary. That was life-changing." after a concert very often, but Vektor gave me the biggest dose of it of my life. Mind-blowing technicality, flawless execution, and the most exciting current band around today. Vektor is the future. And Vektor is perfect.

Highlights: Everything

I would assume the band that wrote the best thrash metal album of the last 25 years would be a big deal.

To convince people of Vektor's greatness, I'd link them to Forests Of Legend.
