Destruction



Date seen: May 5th, 2011

It can be easy to dismiss Destruction... the old material is very good, but the production ruins it for the most part. The intensity and even speed is gone because the production isn't very good. But when you take Destruction's material to a live setting...

God fucking damn.

One of the most intense performances I've ever seen. Busting out classics and newer songs left and right for an hour and a half, and all of them sounding amazing! With only 3 guys on stage, they are superior live to most with even 5 or 6! Schmier and Mike were moving all over the place, with 3 microphones set up on the left, middle and right sides of the stages for Schmier to move around and not move back to one spot. Their new drummer is also really good, he got all the classics down really well which is what matters, because there were a lot of them live! Even though Destruction's new album wasn't very good, their live set was just phenomenal. One of the best headlining sets out there as well. I really hope the Kreator/Sodom/Destruction U.S. tour that Schmier mentioned at the show becomes a reality.

I saw Destruction too. Love them, but so boring live. It was a small stage, so maybe they just didn't want to bother moving around very much.

So do I, but he's been talking about that since 2007. I have hopes that it will happen one day, but I'm not holding my breath.

Huh, weird. And Reggies' stage isn't gigantic or anything but it's big for 3 people. Must've been a REALLY small stage when you saw them then.

Also, I won't be home the rest of today, tomorrow, and probably not Sunday either... so you're gonna have to wait a bit for #1 unless I can squeeze it in sometime!

Exhumed




Dates seen: May 27th, 2011 (Maryland Deathfest), October 30th, 2011

And here it is, the best live band of the year I saw. Quite possibly the best live band I've ever seen as well. At MDF, every band I had seen so far was awesome, so by the time Exhumed was going on I was expecting them to be good as well. My expectations were strapped on to 500 bottle rockets and launched into the air, because I totally underestimated what I was going to be witnessing. Everything was just so fast, heavy, and straight up brutal when they went on! The songs from Gore Metal are definitely the best in their current live settings because they are very clean live and they speed them up for added intensity. But that can be said for all of their songs, just those ones sound the best to me. MDF was also their first U.S. show since disbanding 6 or so years ago, so to see them have a performance of that caliber was just astounding. You'd probably know this by now, but they were definitely the best band at MDF out of the dozens of bands there. I walked out of their set when they were done with my jaw on the floor. I had to tell everyone I knew about what I had just seen.

Unfortunately, I had to miss their summer show in Milwaukee with Macabre, but luckily I had convinced quite a few people to see them after explaining how good they were at MDF. And go figure, every single one of those people who went and saw them then came back to see them at the end of October with Goatwhore. I obviously made an effort to go see them again, no way was I going to miss them that time. I don't think I've heard one bad thing about them live because everyone can't help but enjoy them. One of my friends at the October show who usually never goes to shows anymore because of work, lack of funds, etc. managed to go to that show out of all the ones coming through Chicago that month. He told me in the middle of their set that he made the right choice going to this one!

I'm very glad I've gotten people to go see them live, not just in Chicago but sometimes in other places. I think I told some people about them live on this site... maybe, not sure. But yeah, hands down the best live band I've seen this year. I hope that tour rumor with Cannibal Corpse is true, I really do.

Thanks for reading my list! Happy holidays and such to all, and I'm looking forward to what bands will be on the 2012 list!
