the problem with it is that those vocals are to catchy. it's one of those CDs like presidents of the united states of america (or other late-90's one hit wonders) that you get the songs struck in your head after one listen too. no metalhead short of a metal version of rain man hears whisper supremacy once/for the first time and gets it stuck in their head, but the first time you heard NBC, you undoubtedly could rock out most of the lyrics on your second listen.

War of Ages: they were excellent. Basically the whole reason that I wanted to go. I missed their small show in danville due to drinking imported mexican water called "la revengo de mexico". Im sure the danville was better. The crowd was young and into it, but not the thugged out kick-flippers and moshit dojoers who would have flooded the stage in NH. Before starting one of their last songs, they did the typical "believe in jesus" thing, but jesus... If I had the same experiences that they did in thosoe brief bios the singer gave... Maybe I would be a good christian soul too. And I probably wouldn't have just taken our lord and saviours name in vain. seeing them live was very much worth it. their new songs incorporate even more metal, but don't go over noodley tech like every other band out there.

soilwork: I was really surprised. For a band that has released 3 albums of nu-metal, competing with in flames on who will sell out faster, they don't play the songs the way they are laid down on the CDs. All of the newer track that they played sounded like they would fit some place wedged between predator's and NBC. The last time I shot them was at the tsongas arena or something big like that. The time before that was either the palladium downstairs or greatwoods. The was an amazing age difference in the crowd. This is the sort of line up where a 15 yo comes for throwdown and their 40yo parent comes for soilwork. That's goo for the parents who always hate driving/picking up the kiddies. Now they got something to do! They didn't played anything pre-NBC... Wow.. That's shocking. Unless it was when I was out of the room. No needle feast or shadowchild. That was a let down. The also only played 2 songs froom NBC.
