I saw Metallica last night!! (also posted in my journal and loverockawaits )

Metallica was fuckin amazing. I thought Godsmack sucked, keep in mind I'm not a fan though. I will admit that Sully's duet with James for Sad But True was pretty cool. I know a lot of you do like Godsmack; I think if you like the band you would have liked their set. They played Voodo, Keep Away From Me, that "better fuckin go away" song, I Stand Alone, and I forget the rest. Sully kept saying how proud he was to be from Boston.

Metallica played Fuel, Lepper Messaiah, The Memory Remains, Wherever I may Roam, God that Failed, Master of Puppets, Fade to Black, St. Anger, Sanatarium, Nothing Else Matters, and a couple others that I forget at the moment. Kirk had some awesome solos and the bassist had a cool solo as well. They encored with No Leaf Clover and One, then they played Enter Sandman. After that most people left, but after a few minutes James was "those who left don't know Metallica very well!" and they went on to play Fight Fire with Fire and Seek and Destroy. It was an awesome show, even from the balcony. Metallica definately still has it.

They're playing Boston again tonight, and the show isn't sold out yet, but alas I have work. Anyone going to the Madly in Anger With the World tour, you won't be disapointed.

Next up, Velvet Revolver on November 9th!

Recent Concert Reviews

October 22nd - Twisted Method, Motograter, Dope, Powerman 5000

Overall it was a pretty good show. I was mostly psyched to hear Dope because I can't get enough of their Life album. Twisted Method was alright, I heard one or two songs that I liked but a lot of it just really isn't my style. Motograter was better and I'm interested in hearing some more of their music. Dope was fucking amazing -- Die Motherfucker Die was one of their best songs they played although I wished they would have played Stop because it's a true mosh song. Powerman 5000 was okay.. The End of Everything and When Worlds Collide were the only two songs I knew and I liked them. The lead singer kind of bugs me with his attitude for some reason, but overall the concert was good. I'd see it again.. if Dope was headlining.

October 24th - Earshot and Megadeth

I was surprised that Earshot opened and also amazed by how good they are live. I had only heard Get Away and that song they overplay on the radio before the concert. I'd like to get their album(s) and I would definitly see them again live. The drummer did this amazing drum solo and the guitarist was pretty damn good too and even though the lead singer sounds kind of like Maynard in a few songs, there's a definate difference in style from Tool and APC. As far as Megadeth... wow. Words can't explain what a great concert that was. We saw it at the Joint at the Hard Rock Casino.. it's a bigger venue than the House of Blues but it's still all floor tickets, no seats. The mosh pits were insane, the sound was tight as hell and I could feel the base vibrate throughout my entire body. A Tout de le Mond and Trust were the two best songs they played in my opinion. I wanted them to play A Secret Place and 1000 Times Goodbye but they didn't. It was still amazing. And of course, as expected, they played Peace Sells.

And I'm seeing Manson in two days, so expect a review soon. :D
