Suffocation>>>every other band
Also though Wodensthrone and Diamanthian were pretty mint
Meshuggah , Martyr , The faceless ,Veil of Maya , and Rusko where the best show ive seen in my entire life!
+10,000. Actually, I'd rather just see an NFL linebacker clip him mid-air.
+1 I've seen them twice now, and was absolutely floored both times.
Also, Cannibal Corpse was amazing to see live. I saw them at the Palladium in Worcester, after a bunch of metalcore / deathcore bands had played, and my ears suddenly perked up. It was like, "...oh, right, and this is what real metal actually sounds like."
Finally, Nile? Yeah, just intensely brutal live.
Never seen them live in person, but their live DVDs are ridiculous.
Opeth on Progressive Nation 08.
All of the bands were great but Dream Theater's set was full of Systematic Chaos songs which I am not a fan of and BTBAM's set was super short. I have never really checked out Three before or after the gig.
Predicting flame-age for this butttttt...
August Burns Red is potentially the greatest live show I've ever seen, and I've seen them five times. BECAUSE. The absolute passion that you can tell they feel for what they are playing, doing, saying, is ridiculous. You think a hardcore/metalcore band, and you expect skinny jeans, long obscure hair, gauges, tattoos, girl clothes, jerseys, flatbill hats, etc. ABR five or six years ago I saw...
Polos, regular t-shirts, khaki shorts, standard jeans. I find out before they go on that I've been hanging out with them the WHOLE NIGHT. Then they go on and throw out this raw beautiful emotion. I see them the following year in a different state and they remember me! I am still in contact with them to this day, sometimes they drop me messages to see how I'm doing, etc.
I think some bands just can transcend genres and stereotypes and just make fantastic music.
Also I opened for Cattle Decapitation and the vocalist barfed on a girl's leg off the edge of the stage. Fucking brutal.
That is HILARIOUS!
It was like, four feet away from me and I almost died laughing. Then realized that that was absolutely the most metal thing I'd ever seen in my whole entire life.
Nine Inch Nails
Every time I've seen them but especially on the Lights in the Sky tour. It was abso-fucking-lutely amazing.
Off the top of my head...
Heaven and Hell
i will never see a show better than a mutemath show. seen them twice
Karnivool \ Thread
+1. Easily the best live-band ever. Also my favourite band, ever, for all times. I've seen them...uhm...6 times now i think, not one bad show, every single concert was amazing. They just topped themselves with the setlist at the "Somewhere Back In Time"-Tour.
Second best thing i've ever seen live, was Heaven & Hell. Hearing "Children Of The Sea" live for the first time, played by that line-up, put tears in my eyes.
Also amazing live, but nowhere close to those: Ion Dissonance, The Faceless, Arsis - see them play and be impressed by the HOLY FUCKING TIGHTNESS (ID, i'm looking your way)...seriously, awesome live bands!
I enjoyed Opeth and Mastodon also very much live.
Apparently not. Look! More posts.
Cattle is nuts live, singer is a crazy person.
Unexpect in a small venue is one of the most powerful/entertaining live shows I've ever seen.
Do Make Say Think in any venue is just as amazing.
I can't really choose any top performance as I'd probably be having too much fun to pay attention to exactly how tight they are but the 2 best shows I've ever been to were both at The House of Blues.
Summer Slaughter this year and Thrash & Burn last year.
If I wasn't digging the performance, I was having a blast in the crowd.
WHICH REMINDS ME, I'd probably have to say Decrepit Birth right about now.
They got us all so freakin' rowdy.
I've been to hundreds of shows, everywhere from the local youth organization gym (some local guys) to the largest of stadiums (86 Monsters of Rock, VH, Scorps, Dokken, Metallica, Kingdom Come) and have seen tons of bands (Aerosmith to ZZ top, Alabama to TSO). Not to big on the hardcore thing, but whatever, even have seen a few of those.
Hands down, one of if not the best show/band I have seen was Prince. Say what you will about the little freak, but you have a super solid band (no setlist, will pull anything from his catalog at any time), and oh yeah, Prince will do a 20 minute jam ending to "Purple Rain" that will make you cry-through a Strat, and a few Boss pedals he has on stage. Saw him in the round, do two -plus hours. Never a dull moment while unifying the most culturally diverse crowd ever!
His last run through Philly was three nights-in an arena, in the round. I dare another major act to do this...
Night 1, no opener: three hours. Did another show an hour after that in a 1,500 seater by invite only. Two more hours.
Night 2, Jill Scott opener (not bad, not my thing): two plus hours, half rare, and that "Purple Rain" jam.
Night 3, Morris Day and the Time opener: Prince played half the Time set from under the stage, and then did three hours on his own.
Now that Prince is doing a Vegas stint, may be another reason for a field trip. Haven't been to Vegas in 10 years.
Opeth, Gojira, TesseracT.
3 bands I will see before I die.
I swear it.
that was awful.
