    I'll definately give the details. I have to admit, that I'm feeling a Rodamus Prime start to manifest itself in my pants for this show. Especially since it's on halloween.

    @ joe.distort: we've all made our mistakes in the past. I once went to an ICP show. I was young, stupid, and drunk so it seemed okay at the time. As far as paying the extra price, I have no problem giving these guys my money. Brendan Small has always delivered in his shows, especially with the School of Rock Allstars, and Mastadon is just something that has to be experienced. This just means that I have to sacrafice one or two of the weekend benders I'm so fond of. It's a small price to pay for what I'm sure will be a night not soon forgotten.

    @ Varuker - I might be going to the show...

    Also, anyone who likes Sabbath, Pentagram, Saint Vitus... checkout Witchcraft and Graveyard. Both bands are very retro sounding, and awesome.

    @filty ring - I dig those retro-sounding bands like Witchcraft and Graveyard. What about The Sword and Witch? They work for ya?

    dont know if ive mentioned them yet but my favorite local band right now is CAGEMATCH who have some serious metal leanings despite being a bunch of old punks/ emo kids (when emo meant emo, not hot topic mall fashion)

    @ sleestack - Yeah, I've been a fan of The Sword since their first album came out in 06 and I just recently started listening to Witch...

    I have tickets for that Mastodon/Dethklok show in November. looking forward to it. the only band that I saw before on the bill live is High on Fire who opened for Opeth last time around.

    For those interested, Type O Negative are doing a short tour at the end of October. I might be hitting the Chicago show. I'd go to Detroit, but I can't imagine being in Detroit on Halloween (at a Type O show) would be a good idea.

    @varuker dethklok and soilent green? you lucky lucky bastard, don't get to see any metal down here in hawaii. it's quite sad.

    i've recently rediscovered eyehategod, and playing enemy. my bus rides to and from work and school have been quite brutal.

    playing enemy has some folks from RORSHACH, i know you are into stuff like that and they are classic!

    The Dethklok/Soilent Green/Chimera tour was AMAZING, saw them last year in Buffalo.

    Is anyone else going to the Albany show at The Armory this tour?

    @nick3pointone4: Yeah, it was an awesome show. Unfortunately I missed Chimera though. Which island are you on? I would imagine that Oahu would get some decent lineups every now and then.

    Solid pull with eyehategod. They were one of the bands that really pushed me to expand my metal horizons.

    Buzzoven are releasing an EP of old material on Relapse Records and possibly a new album.

    @joe.distort rorschach? of course. you into deadguy by any chance?

    @varuker i'm on oahu and we get a decent show maybe 3 or 4 times a year and it's usually not metal, hawai'i's always had this weird scene cycle because all the kids in bands either move away to college or they're in the military and their term is up. so every 5 years it dies and resurrects itself so the mainland bands that come here kind of stop and restart. in the late 90's it was all old school hardcore types of bands like gorilla biscuits, agnostic front, madball type stuff, which was the entire scene. and then around 2000 the scene died and got real poppy and punky, which caused a reaction that strangely spawned a bunch of death metal and grindcore bands (a few of which i was a part of). around 03-04 all that kind of crashed as everyone left, including me and now that i'm back there's a really serious and thriving hardcore scene again. granted it's more the metalcore dun-dun-dun-weeeeee breakdown-core stuff but i can dig it, and it's nice to see people giving a fuck about music here.

    the nice thing about the hardcore kids and their mentality is that they're so concerned with repping the scene and giving a fuck that they try really hard to use their money to bring down bands, so the past few years we've seen bands here we never thought would come down, hatebreed, hope conspiracy, bad brains, terror, madball etc etc. and it's all because of them. it's a weird place as far as a music scene goes and mainland band shows here but i hope the hardcore scene sustains itself a bit longer than the previous ones did.

    not too big on deadguy...i havent heard a whole lot though
  10.  (6530.116)
    same crew of people associated with rorschach and playing enemy, deadguy was what a few of them did before playing enemy. it's good stuff.

    Dillinger Escape Plan - really dig the songs "Milk Lizard and "Black Bubblegum"
    They crashed the stage at NIN last week and destroyed the place!
