Speaking of Firehouse, as I have mentioned this was probably my 7-8 time seeing them live. Clearly I’m not only a fan, but a committed fan. I keep seeing them live because they never fail to put on an awesome show. Allen, Bill, CJ, and Michael are all four exceptional musicians and give 100% to their fans no matter what is going on in their personal lives. That is one of the things that I respect the most from them
Will they look as pathetic as aging rock stars or will they manage to keep their self-irony and reinvent themselves again without reinventing the wheel? “All the problems make me wanna go/Like a bad girl straight to video/Little darling welcome to the show/You’re a failure played in stereo” (MSI “Straight to Video”)
The legendary metal band Megadeth took the stage this past Tuesday, December 3rd at The Paramount on their “Super Collider” tour with special guests Fear Factory and Nonpoint.
I was left feeling remarkably surprised by a band that I once had genuine distaste for which is an incredible feeling to be left with, and with that, I applaud The Darkness.
Usually featuring 2 ticket-drawing acts with either a tour support or local band-thus it was the case with this show. Quality long standing bands Buckcherry and Hardcore Superstar were joined by new band Venrez
We we’re able to check them out again this past friday November 29th at Terminal 5 in NY
Slayer, Gojira and 4ARM live at The Theatre at Madison Square Garden
All reports we’re glaring as they belted some old numbers with a new mix of the new material as well. A big bill with 5 bands opening for Fates, including support and fellow progressive metallers Halcyon Way. It all build anticipation for one of the old school bands to make it’s long way back to where they belong. Welcome back FW here’s hoping it doesn’t take another decade to release new material.
Jon Stevens is a solid front man, working the crowd and the stage well and they manage to make the small stage at the Underworld look ten times bigger than it usually is.
A steeple of consistency Overkill has been, probably more underrated then anybody out there, another legendary band in the genre with a storied career that just keeps plowing away with no sign of stoppage any time soon. If you call yourself a true metalhead and never seen Overkill live, wake up and smell the napalm in the air, cause it’s bloody powerful.
