Whitechapel: they has some problems with the bass or something right off the bat. Once they figured that deal out, they got back into the bree of things. For 4pm on a friday, the crowd was amazingly full for them. I had rushed in at the last minute, late as the day is long.

psycroptic: if I had to rate the awesomeness of the band based solely on hair. That singer would drag them down to a sub par rating in my made up system. Now if they had the guitars turned up just a touch more it would have rated height just based on the fact that they slayed. On of those bands that can just sit on the merrits of really good musicianship.

born of osiris: they were pretty good. They had more energy the last time I saw them, but the crowd surfed a bunch. I still haven't heard cds or anything. they seemed to race off the stage and give aborted a little more set up time.

Sorry, what day is this?



toggletoggle post by the_reverend   at Jun 27,2008 5:49pm
it's happening right now. aborted is about to go on

Oh. I guess I slept through this one :-(

Thanks.

aborted: since the last time I saw them, this is basically a brand new band. I think every member changed except the singer and a guitarist. The singer of whitechapel came out and sang their last song with them. The earlier they played was goremagedon.

despised icon: it seemed that aborted hurried off the stage too, giving DI a lot more time to get ready on the stage. With the addition of max on bass permanently, their claimes of being from montreal are slipping. I really can wait for the next CD they are working on. Despisediconatory. The crowd was pretty non-stop for the entire set. Well, that's not completely true, but true enough. Twice they deluged over the barricade to the complete dismay of the bouncers. The sound here is excellent today. Not painfully loud at all. Basically every member on stage had an "oh, hi" moment when they saw me. They sent a song out to scott lee and then alex gave the crowd a glowing endorsement to go to rttp. In my head a cheer went up like I just made the winning touchdown at the superbowl. I was on the phone with presedent bill clinton at the time. Ok,so there was only a little cheer. They pretty much killed it. 1/2 way through the show and their set was headline worth.

I had a feeling they were going to be one of the best bands of the night.

faceless, the: they were actually better than the nile tour. The singer looked totally different, right? The drummer was awesome.
Sidenote: I walked outside and told the guitarist how much better they were this time around and he said it's probably cause their old singer is back. I win!

cryptopsy: As terrible and shitty I thought they were going to be... They were were excellent. They came out to a sample of some computer nerd talking about how cryptopsy ruined death metal. Immediately noticed that there was no keyboard player present and the only change in the line up from the last show was the singer. No deathcore, no giant janco pants. No hats with fake dreds on them. Nothing to do with clowns. I really had expect a completely different band with eyeliner, swooped hair, "homosexual" pants, and just flo on the drums. Yeah, the new singer going to take some getting used to and the new CD is garbage, but feeling the drums for slit your guts, cold hate, and phobophobia ruled.

Never underestimate the power of free things. I pulled together a bunch of stickers and went outside to give them to some peeps. Pause for a second and im passing them out to all these people in the front who "love return to the pit". Only to then ask "so is there any place I can find these pictures?" ha!

the pictures of the crowd are like the "where's elliot".
I could give you a hint about who he is.

I would agree with you, but out of the whole audience, he's the only one staring at me doing a cat claw or something. I love seeing him at shows.

Look at elliot in this.
