I would add TBDM sooo much fun at their shows. Also whats more metal than getting a nice cut on your knee, bleeding and crowd surfing during Blood in the Ink!

BTBAM, Mastodon and Baroness are muy bueno too. When I heard The Gnashing live it was so beautiful ;____;

Lastly The Ghost Inside is great and so are Pop Punk bands. The Story So Far,Transit, Title Fight and The Wonder Years. I need to see NFG do a headliner.

Russian Circles: Flawless

Primordial: Alan is an amazing live vocalist.

YOB: So fucking heavy.

Opeth: The two special shows I saw at the Wiltern are among my favorites ever.

Steven Wilson/Porcupine Tree: The sound was impeccable for both as well as having great visuals to accompany the music. Having a nearly perfect setlist for both shows also helps.

I'd have to say that seeing the immortal Death back in the late 80's / early 90's was one of the best things ever. Chuck Schuldiner was a fucking beast, a musical phenom, and just truly ahead of his time.

Seeing Slayer live back in those days was ridiculously awesome, too. I haven't seen them in years, though, so I don't know if their live show has stood the test of time or not.

Seeing TOOL live is always a spiritual experience for me. They are so talented, and they reproduce their album sound so well live.

Meshuggah are fucking incredible. So heavy.

Baroness hit the ball out of the fucking park all three times I've seen them.

Pelican are always fantastic.

High on Fire never disappoint, even when Matt is trashed out of his mind.

Clutch and Primus have been a shitload of fun every time.

Nile and Origin brought down the house each time I've seen them.


Honorable Mentions

I've only seen each of these bands once, but each of them left an indelible impression on me:

Watain. Wow. Just fucking...wow.

Watching Julie Christmas of Made Out of Babies throw herself around the tiny stage at the Grog Shop on their tour for The Ruiner was just insane.

Jucifer may have been the loudest thing I've ever heard in my life.

Both Grayceon and Giant Squid impressed the hell out of me when I saw them one night in a seedy little bar on Chicago's west wide while TOOL played Lollapalooza a few miles away downtown. To this day, I still don't regret the decision one iota, and you can see what I've said above regarding TOOL.

I've seen them three times and I say it has imo; granted age has slowed them down a little but they kick ass harder than most bands half their age

when was the last time you saw 'em?

Slayer on this past Mayhem tour were amazing. Not only does Gary Holt bring so much good energy to the band, but their stage show has gotten considerably more awesome.
Proof:


And seeing Meshuggah is probably in my top 5 show experiences. Brutal perfection.

Musicianship wise: Ted Nugent. I have yet to see a band come close to the tightness of Nuge, St. Holmes, Smith & Brown.

Stage wise: Rammstein. Holy shit. More pyro in that show alone than in all the other 65 I've seen combined.

Production value wise: Trans Siberian Orchestra. I always see them at least once a year and it's always an experience.

Totally forgot about Watain. Their set from their last headlining tour here was without a doubt one of the top 5 performances I've ever witnessed.

I also forgot to add Dropdead. Those fuckers are insane.

Soooo you've never seen Overkill?

There're probably a few bands I could put here, but as of two minutes ago Cormorant just made the list. Mother of GOD that was astounding.

And just for good measure in case I forget to actually type out that list when I get home, yes Overkill are one of the best live bands I've ever seen.
