That they did, and I hope they do as well. Seeing their frontman with Nasum at MDF next year will be awesome but I'm hoping they can also get Rotten Sound on there as well in case another band drops.

Nunslaughter



Date seen: May 28th, 2011 (Maryland Deathfest)

Kind of crazy to believe that Nunslaughter has been around since 1989 or so but are now getting attention... I guess the singer finally decided to put more effort into it in the past decade or so. Anyway, these guys were one of my favorites at MDF this past year. It's like a grindcore experience but with death metal. Nunslaughter have really short songs yet all of them have great quality in their own way. Because the production isn't exactly top notch on their albums, seeing them live made them so much more better. These guys are energetic as all hell, and funny! Their drummer is one of the most upbeat, entertaining people I've ever seen live. "WHAT DO WE WANT TO DO MDF?!" "RAID THE CONVENT!!!" Lots of good times during their set alone. Someone actually brought a bible and everyone started ripping it up and burning it during their set! Not gonna lie, they couldn't have picked a more perfect band to do that for! But back on track, it sucks that I had to miss them when they came to Chicago in July because it was 21+, but hopefully they will be back in the near future because I would love to see them again.

Magrudergrind



Date seen: April 9th, 2011

Saw these guys at another Scion sponsored free show in April with Mind Eraser and Noisear. As you can guess, Magrudergrind stole the show with their crazy antics and music. As everyone knows, they only play 15 minute sets, which is what they did as usual. But those 15 minutes were just nuts. A lot of people were just going full out crazy for them. I remember this one guy had 666 and an inverted cross written on his chest in marker and he was doing bear walks and frog leaps and shit the entire show! It was more funny than annoying since he wasn't really bothering anyone physically. But, my favorite part of Magrudergrind's set was at the end when the singer told everyone to stage dive. Now, as you have probably heard, Reggie's does not allow stage diving at all. Seeing like 40 people getting on stage and jumping off with only a few security guards there was a sight to never be forgotten! It's safe to say that Reggie's got owned that day

Absu



Date seen: February 22nd, 2011

When I saw Absu was the support for Immortal on their very short U.S. tour in the winter, I thought, "oh cool, they should be nice." Oh how my expectations were blown away. In all honesty, these guys, no doubt about it, upstaged Immortal live when I saw them. There were only 3 of them on stage at the time (can't remember now if it's 3 or 4 people playing live, it seems to always change, but in this case it's 3) and they could all rip on their instruments. Especially their drummer/vocalist, Proscriptor. Holy fuck that guy is a nutcase. To add to that, his crazy speeches in between songs were hilarious yet he manages to do it without creating any awkwardness towards himself or the band. I'm very happy these guys got added to MDF next year because I am most definitely looking forward to seeing them again.

Yeah, Proscriptor was pretty funny, as everything he said was in his high black metal voice. It seemed cheesy but I dunno.

Also, Black Breath fucking rips live!

I think he knows it's cheesy, he just wants to entertain the crowd with some MYTHOLOGIC OCCULT BLACK METAL as he said a bunch of times during the set.

Anyway, I'm gonna post #20 now. We're halfway through the list. After #20 I'm gonna post some bands that didn't make it/disappointed with this year.

Neurosis



Date seen: May 27th, 2011 (Maryland Deathfest)

Neurosis headlined the 2nd day of MDF this year. I'm glad they did, because they played at the perfect time on the perfect day, which I will get to shortly. I really wish these guys would tour more because their live show is an experience. As soon as they started, I smelled pot smoke right away! Figured that would be the right band to do it for. Their music live is just mind blowing and very atmospheric. They also had a projector in the background playing various images to go with the music.

Now, they played at the perfect time on the perfect day because right before they were gonna set up, it started down pouring rain, very hard, but luckily for only 10 minutes or so. They had to set up late because of it, but still managed to play their entire set about 20 minutes after their scheduled time. Now, with the rain completely stopped and not to return at all for the remainder of the night (or festival days!), there was still a lightning storm going on in the background. So, seeing Neurosis and having this crazy lightning show going on in the background (unplanned, I may add) just added to the overall awesomeness of their performance. Neurosis were another one of my favorites there because of all this.

So now for a special halfway segment...

Bands that disappointed me!

These are some of the most disappointing bands I saw live this year. Most, if not all of them are ones that I was excited to see but was let down by. Here we go...

Coroner

I think we all know this one was coming first... One of my favorite bands, EVER, and I was so excited to see them, I skipped a good portion of Nuclear Assault's set at MDF just so I could get up front (and eventually on the rail, center stage!) Only to be let down. I can't really blame them because they quit music for like 15 years, but they should've gotten it together before playing. Their set was terrible. I mean, 3 songs each from No More Color and Mental Vortex were awesome, but 1 song each from the first 2, slowed down? And the rest from Grin? Ugh...... I'm grateful now that I saw them because they may never be back, but from watching videos of them live from the early 90s, they've taken a turn for the worst when playing live.

Immortal

Who would've thought that Immortal would be back in Chicago for a 6 date tour? I was really excited to see them because, well, they're Immortal. Legendary Norwegian black metal band! Except they weren't very good. I wasn't kidding when I said that Absu upstaged them. Immortal's sound was awful. It was muggy as all hell. And the fog machine, GOD DAMN. I couldn't see anything, at all! I guess part of this could be blamed on the Bottom Lounge but Absu had no problems at all, so I guess this was Immortal's doing.

Finntroll

Dear Christ these guys were HORRIBLE. Even though I saw them 3 days before Immortal, their sound was so much worse than Immortal's. I couldn't even tell what was going on. There was no energy on stage and everything just sounded like a mess. I guess it's hard to top playing after Ensiferum and Rotten Sound, but these guys were just awful. My friends agreed and we left about 5 songs in.

Alestorm

These guys were the least worst band on here that I saw, but a LOT of the blame is towards the Bottom Lounge for this one. The guitar kept cutting out throughout the entire set and like half the time there would be no guitarist on stage. Like I've said before, the Bottom Lounge treats openers like shit, because when Kamelot came on, they sounded a lot better. Hopefully Alestorm will sound better when I see them in April at Reggies.

That sucks man, but I'm sure you're right about it being mostly the venue's fault. They were great when I saw them open for Eluveitie last year.
