What the gently caress is mustaine doing to gigantour?

Motorhead, loving A sweet as long as they get as long a set as megadeth.

but what the gently caress is this lacuna coil/volbeat crap as the other half of the show. I guess it would be a good situation if the highschoolers there for LC and Volbeat took off once the old men took the stage, but gently caress I don't want to pay for a ticket if I'm going to skip half of the bill. Nor should people get the idea those two bands are on par with megadeth and motorhead.

I need advice on doing corpse paint. At stores I see grease makeup and cream makeup and I'm not sure what's best. I've read about more professional stuff like Kryolan and that is cream (Behemoth uses Kryolan Supracolor apparently). I've looked at guides online, but they don't really talk about the materials to use. Any and all advice on other materials is welcome too!

I've used stuff from halloween stores every year without a problem. I'm not sure what kind it is but it's cheap and seems to dry after a little bit, it doesn't seem to rub off on too much stuff. The dust can get on a black shirt and stand out but what can you do...

Volbeat is basically just metalized rockabilly. It can be fun to listen to (and for a while they got a ton of airplay here in denmark mostly with this song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Q2NtjoYj_U and partly because it also featured the leadsinger of a fairly popular danish post-punk band) but ultimately there isn't really a lot to it.

The vocalist used to be in Dominus which was a really solid death metal band and he even took the name from their album which was called "Vol. Beat".

In the end they are all ripping off Danzig era Misfits, just making the guitars all heavy. I am sure before Misfits there was similar stuff, anyone know of any bands?

Take Elvis, make the Stray Cats his backing band and that's the idea behind volbeat. Lemmy's playing with some of them in Head Cat now, and I think all 3 of them are better. Rockabilly was punk before then and I doubt Danzig didn't take some cues from it.

Dismember is one of my favourite bands but it is probably no big loss that they're splitting up. Their later albums weren't really anything special, the biggest loss is that they won't be touring anymore.

Dismember was one of three bands that got me into death metal with Death is only the Beginning 2 compilation nuclear blast used to put out.

At least I got to see them live once with Grave opening. One of the best shows ever.

Seconding this, and also throwing in Thulcandra - Fallen Angel's Dominion, if you like Dissection. Pretty much Dissection-worship, and they even cover "The Somberlain" on that release.

Wow they really did go all out for dissection huh? Even "ending" the record with a piano track (even if it's nothing compared to ...Breathless Sleep).

They do a good job with Somberlain though. That song ain't easy to play.

Yea, it's a pretty decent album but the thing is, I listened to it for like 20 minutes and then turned it off and put on Storm of Lights Bane and listened to the real thing.

I actually went on a dissection spree monday so I needed a decent stunt-dissection today. It's not bad, but yeah, imitated but not duplicated.

Whatever you do, just don't watch their live Rebirth of Dissection DVD. It really really killed Dissection for me, the drummer (Tomas Asklund) they got to fill in is just an awful boring mess of poo poo. He literally takes energy away from their songs, I don't even understand how that's possible.

Seriously? I loved that DVD. He's boring to watch but he's a great drummer and let's be honest, nobody's listening to dissection for the drums.

Besides it's the only way anyone who didn't live in sweden in the early 90s gets to see dissection live, even if jon's the only guy from those albums left.

Yea, he played the songs amazingly and had great timing. I'm watching some clips right now and I think I figured out why I don't really like it. Jon is like a ball of energy and he's being an amazing frontman and in contrast with that Tomas just kinda looks bored and out of place.

Oh absolutely. Jon was fired up to be there, the crowd was there for HIM.

Watching Asklund more gave me the impression he's in the zone, trying to NAIL the songs. Then again I can't remember him ever looking excited to be there, but maybe he's so used to being the unseen guy on stage he figures nobody's looking.

The cover of Elizabeth Bathory though, blows away the recorded one they did.

Most of the guesses are at least "some black metal guy" which I'm usually happy enough with, at least they know where I was headed with it.

Their shirts run a bit on the small side, which is worth bearing in mind, but yeah their stuff is quality. I have a Blood Fire Death shirt from them and it's got sparkly stuff in the gold ink for gently caress's sake.

That's funny you say that because I've found they're one of the only 2xl shirt places made for tall instead of fat.

But yeah they ABSOLUTELY put top effort into their shirts. My Emperor shirt has the gold glittery lettering, sleeve emblems, a sweet faded in cover on the back. I got a Death/Leprosy shirt too that is unreal, and no other place sells it.

I usually buy shirts at the concert, but lately I've been just purchasing the tour shirts off eBay or something after seeing the band. It's hard to justify a $45 Heritage shirt in a small when I could get the same thing a few months later for $20.

Don't say ears.

Now go listen to every other thrash band and compare the drumming. One sounds like a metronome, the rest are exciting. His poo poo drumming slows everything that band does down. Listen to Mechanix and 4 Horsemen... He's second rate and that's too generous.

Gigantour was pretty good in Lowell tonight. The crowd was not very large, unfortunately. Lacuna

Coil opened and played for like 30 minutes, not really my thing but Cristina Scabbia has an incredible voice live. The bass was insane for most of the set.

Volbeat was surprisingly good live, I didn't really like anything I'd heard from them but they put on a really fun show. They were egging on the pit that started and the singer was swigging from a bottle of Jack Daniels, so you've got to respect that. I thought my little brother was going to cream his pants with joy when they played Reign in Blood, though


Motorhead was loud like always, but pretty low energy and Lemmy looked pissed off at the mosh pit and just in general when he got out. But then again, Lemmy always looks pissed off. Mikkey Dee did an amazing solo and really kind of stole the set. God drat dude went for like 10 minutes.

Megadeath was Megadeath, I've seen them twice before and didn't go away disappointed but they didn't really wow me. I was way up front getting pushed around in the crowd with every one else and got some lovely phone pictures. When they did A Tout La Monde with Cristina, you could barely hear her over the crowd, but it was probably the highlight of the show, that or Hangar 18. Or Peace Sells..but for personal reasons.

Man I was completely let down by sunday's show. Motorhead PLAYED well, but their set list sucked and it seemed to me they got a really short set. No surprises for songs and the ones they did play were songs anyone who's seen them before has heard already. Mikkey Dee did play his loving rear end off though, that was great.

Megadeth loving sucked. Another bad set list. I couldn't believe how much new poo poo they played.

And like the other guy talking about this tour, we almost got in a fight with 3 assholes in hunting hats and chinstraps.

I have never been disappointed with motorhead before

Precisely what I was thinking when I read that post. I can't believe it's been that long, that Jack and Kelly are all grown up and that Ozzy is likely even more of a wreck.

Supposedly he's a lot more with it now that he fired a doctor who was literally writing the guy a prescription to counteract the effects of another prescription, and then writing one to counteract THAT one. I think I read he was on something like 20 different meds and over half of them were to fight side effects of other ones.

I guess now that he's off all that poo poo he's back to what you'd expect a lunatic rock star to be like after 40 years of coke and booze, and not a stroke victim like he was on TV.
