Not an enterthevault band.

Havok shits all over Warbringer!

At any rate, I'm looking forward to this. It looks like Toronto is getting a Kreator headlining set, which wouldn't be my first choice, but it'll be an awesome show anyway.

Since this keeps popping up on twitter:




With that said, it's probably fake. Especially since Evile appears to be going through issues right now (i.e. label changes, Ol possibly leaving the band, etc). Also I'm pretty sure Testament would headline over Destruction.

I said I would never see Testament again, but if that lineup is true, I'm there. Destruction is among the greatest live bands ever!

Not the two times I've seen them they're not. Kreator, Testament, Tankard, and Overkill shit all over them. And that's just picking from thrash bands roughly on their status level.

Kreator: I wasn't as into them when I saw them, but I'll take your word for it.

Testament: Worst live band ever. They will not be good until they get a sound guy.

Tankard: Never seen; they look like a fun live band, but I can't imagine it being better than Destruction

Overkill: Definitely a good live band, but nowhere near as heavy or intense as Destruction

Of all of the thrash bands I've seen (Sacred Reich, Coroner, Voivod, Exodus, Death Angel, Sepultura, Anthrax, Megadeth, Havok, Warbringer, etc), only Slayer could beat out Destruction. Combined with the fact that they've been to North America 4 times without getting paid, I'll take any chance I can to see them if they ever come back.

False. Simply, outright, false. Testament are superb live. Sound problems are one thing, performance is something else.

Same for me the first time I saw them. Then saw them again this year and... holy shit! Evile were on right before them and couldn't touch them.

They really are super fun. Their songs are dumb as fuck, but their energy is only beaten by Overkill. And Gerre's gut must take some serious cultivation if he can continue to maintain it with all the running around on stage he does every night. He's like Bruce Dickinson. If Bruce Dickinson ate the rest of Iron Maiden.

Oh, Death Angel! Forgot them; they're better live than Destruction too. Another one as energetic as Overkill. Exodus would be too if it weren't for Rob Dukes.

Heavy and intense is Destruction's music, not their live performance, which is motionless, disinterested, and boring. Schmier usually looks like he doesn't even want to be there.

Didn't get paid four times? Man they need to start signing better deals!

I haven't seen Destruction live, but I keep hearing they're really great. Testament are pretty meh live. The first time I saw 'em, Death Angel and Anthrax definitely blew them out of the water.

I dunno where people are getting Testament sucks live. Every single time I've seen Testament, the second their set ends I immediately think "Man, it's been too long since I've seen Testament."
