I wouldn't go into a Hatebreed pit, those kids aren't there to have fun. They just like kicking the girls on the side of the pit. I'd much rather go see a band like Municipal Waste and enjoy running around going nuts. gently caress that kicking poo poo.


Also, more power to Brendan Small, that guy is successful in TV and has a decent music career? That's two entirely separate dream jobs for most people.

Pretty much this. I find it more annoying than anything else when I am watching a perfectly good show and some fat sweaty corpse-painted man runs into me at full speed.

I know I'm boring, but it is pretty interesting seeing that there are people from both camps in this thread.

I don't really get moshing either, but I also don't don't see why you have to be a great big homophobe about it.

Seen: my handle. I love to mosh. I'm a 5'4 girl and I just...it's just fun. I've never really had problems with getting groped, although I've heard horror stories. I have been elbowed in the face (on accident and on purpose). I've gotten into fights. Circle pitting to Kreator at Wacken was one of the coolest experiences of my life and tiny shows, like Magrudergrind at Transistions of Chruchill's is just too much fun not to go nuts. There's a certain pit etiquette and camaraderie that I've never experienced anywhere else.

e- Hardcore dancing, the flingy kind, looks stupid and hurts innocent bystanders. And kicking and punching is really a big no-no.

Because I'm short, I like to stand in the back of the pit, because I am in control of my space (no overcrowding like up front!), I can get out if I need to pee or get a beer and it's the only place I can see over everyone. I usually end up shoving some people around. I can understand why people don't like to mosh, but shows here seem to always have some kind of upper floor area/upstairs/other place to stand that's out of the way of flying people.

Now that I've been going to shows for almost ten years, my knees are hosed...sometimes I feel a little moshed out. But for a really great show, I will totally run around in a circle/push pit and shove some people.

All that said, I really came here to post a blog I just wrote about Americans going to Euro fests. I've had people ask me how I've done it, so I finally wrote it all up.

I was listening to metal for the first time in a while today, and Empty's A Source of Hollow Essence popped up. I strikes me as run of the mill Dissection worship, but a couple tracks were pretty cool, especially the track Worship Me and Die. I'm interested in listening to some similarly melodic blackened thrash, any recommendations?

Yes! I am totally looking forward to this show. I've seen Dethklok twice live and they have been fun shows. I am not a big fan of LoG, but I have seen them twice as well and they put on a hell of a live show. And Gojira are one of my newer favorite bands at the moment, I'm so pumped for their upcoming album, so this is going to be one hell of a tour. I'll probably be going to both the Houston and San Antonio shows.

I ordered up Timeghoul's discography after hearing about them in the thread awhile ago. The CD just showed up today and I've been listening to it almost nonstop, it's really great. My favorite track (for now at least) is "Boiling in the Hourglass".

It got me wondering: Does anybody know of any metal groups with a similar dark/bleak science fiction theme to their music? My apologies if a similar question has been answered earlier in the thread, I've been reading it off and on for a couple months and might have missed it.

Well, there was that infamous incident with Slayer at the Felt Forum (MSG) in '88 where the fans started ripping all the cushions out of the seats and throwing them at the stage. Most venues have been too smart for that poo poo at metal shows since.

You also have stuff like Axis of Advance which is straight out oppressive. If that's your thing, Sacramentary Abolishment is where to go from there.

While I believe just about the entire group has just about turned over now, Planetary Duality from The Faceless fits that science fiction / horror tech death theme. It will be interesting to see how the new members change their sound from here on out. I haven't heard any of their new material.

Seconding Vektor and Voivod sci-fi theme with progressive thrash.

On a different note, has anyone else been following the development of the new Dying Fetus album, Reign Supreme? The samples I've heard sound insanely good!

Darkspace is all sci-fi themed "space black metal". I really only like their first album but I like it a LOT. It's definitely bleak and empty feeling

Thoughts on Voivod without Snake? The two albums without him (Negatron and Phobos) were the only thing I was able to get into. Eric Forrest was Voivod to me when I was young.

If you haven't heard that stuff, check this out. It's loving awesome and when I listen to other Voivod stuff it just seems like lovely rock and roll.

For those that don't understand moshing, you should know that for circle pits there are "rules" to it. Really. The people that aren't doing it right are the ones that get shoved out to the side and/or pushed over.

Vektor is straight up Aspid worship. The lyrics aren't there, but if you're into the whole progressive thrash thing, I don't see a good reason why you wouldn't enjoy them thoroughly.

I've been listening to it today. It's not bad, but certainly not as good as Days of Grays and obviously, different than everything pre-Unia.

It'll take me a while to make up my mind. Sonata Arctica albums rarely catch me at first. It takes a while for me to appreciate them.

I'm pretty sure I don't like Shitload O' Money though.
