apologies for ripping off Behemoth in the post title.
opening band were the Lucifer Principle, who were ok I guess. They have a cello instead of a bass player (sounds like a jazz thing to do), and were pretty ok. I guess. For having shit sound and some remotely headbangable riffs. They were endurable but that is kind of all that there is that needs to be said about these guys. I’m gonna leave it at that.
TLP get 5 principles of matches out of 10.
Lamb of God are the hair on yer arses. They are the metal kings of metal today. Better than Slayer, more existent than Pantera, less inclined to go down the shitroute like Metallica/Megadeth/Anthrax, and plain tight as fuck, even with Mark back home to witness the birth of his child, they know how to kick ass. Pits were plentiful, heads were banging, voices were chanting, and the band tore the Melkweg apart. I’m sure you’re pleased with yourself busters, ’cause I am.
No setlist qualms except maybe one more Sacrament song next time? Please? Foot to the Throat? Have you guys even heard that song after you wrote it? Anyway, the setlist was top notch, the performance was top notch, the energy was top notch… it was a high calibre show from a high calibre band that I am glad to see in a 1500 man club venue headlining rather than opening on a festival (like last time at Graspop).
Very metal, and go see them if you like any of the other bands I mentioned. Or if you like your metal headbangable without cheesy keyboards. They do it better than anyone else out there at the moment.
