Celtic Frost -- Lawrence, KS -- October 16th, 2006

I just realized that I missed the 5th anniversary of my first metal concert! And I also noticed that I didn't do a review of this show either, but I didn't do those back then. :P Join my on my nostalgic trip to the past.

This was my first metal concert, my first concert in Lawrence, my first concert with just me and a friend, and one of the best I've ever seen. It was a long time ago, so I only remember certain things, so I'll try my best to paint a picture.

I had gotten heavily into metal in January of 2005, and Celtic Frost was one of the first batches of bands I got into. Specifically, the song Into The Crypts of Rays. I remember reading the Arts and Entertainment section of my newspaper in May of 2006, and they said Monotheist was coming out the day before my birthday. I don't know why, but that really stuck out to me. So I picked up Monotheist and continued listening heavily to Celtic Frost. I don't remember where, but I somehow heard of the show they were having in Lawrence. I was excited, but only if I knew then what I knew now of just how legendary they were. I burned all of Monotheist and all of Morbid Tales into my brain, so I was lucky.

There was a pretty big line to get into The Bottleneck, but it seemed to go fast. The first band was a local band called Moire. For the life of me I can't remember exactly what kind of music they played, since it was so long ago. They recently became really active in the local music scene here again, so I hope to see them again soon.

I think on this tour, at times 1349 opened for Celtic Frost and I actually think Sunn O))) was opening for them too on some dates. We got neither here, but Goatwhore was direct support. I thought they really kicked ass. Really fast and really heavy. This was around the time A Haunting Curse came out, which I picked up after their set. They were great, and they're another band I haven't seen since. (Seeing them in Feb. with Hate Eternal though!)

It took a really long time for Celtic Frost to get on stage. It was a school night, so my friend and I were kind of nervous about getting home at a decent time (my step-dad drove us and was just kinda hanging out downtown, waiting for us to call him when we were done). It took them a long time to get on stage, then their intro took quite a while too, but I'll never forget...right when the music stopped, the feedback started...they launched into the most devastatingly slow and heavy version of Procreation Of The Wicked I've ever heard. It was kind of fucking insane. There wasn't a single person in the venue not headbanging. Martin Erich Ain was also pretty hilarious. I remember him saying something like "I CAN TELL YOU RIGHT NOW THAT BECAUSE OF US AND ALL YOU HERE RIGHT NOW, LAWRENCE KANSAS IS THE MOST SATANIC FUCKING PLACE ON EARTH TONIGHT!" and that was fucking metal. Circle of the Tyrants was outstanding, and I remember Ain Elohim was especially great.

The worst part of the night was we left at about 12:30, missing the last two songs. Really upset about that, but still one of the best concerts I've ever been to. I still wear the Morbid Tales shirt I picked up from there, and my friend still has his Monotheist tour shirt.

In November of next year, they came to Lawrence again, opening for Type O Negative. I went to buy tix the day before, but it was sold out. I was crushed. It still kind of hurts to think about, now that they're broken up. I just can't wait for Triptykon to get around these parts.

So yeah, that's about it. My 2nd metal concert was Cannibal Corpse the next month. Maybe I'll do a review on that sometime...

Procreation (of the Wicked)
Visions of Mortality

The Usurper
Jewel Throne
Ain Elohim
Necromantical Screams

That's a badass first concert to go to. I wish I saw the Celtic Frost reunion tour.

Though I never understood why A Dying God Coming Into Human Flesh was a single/music video for Monotheist and yet they never played it live. That song was excellent.

Fuck yeah. I hope Triptykon pulls it out eventually. Nowadays, it's probably my favorite Monotheist track.

Sounds epic as fuck! I would have liked to see Celtic Frost
My first one was the At the Gates reunion tour, with Darkest Hour, Municipal Waste and Toxic Holocaust... not bad either

The first three songs on Monotheist are forever stone cold Celtic Frost classics. The rest I go back and forth on.

Yeah, I hope they do another tour... they were incredible live and everyone was totally into it, screaming every lyric. It was crazy and they're still one of my favourite bands!
