|The Big Four|
Last night with my uncle and saw The Big Four in theaters....apparently you could just order it on dish, but eh, who cares. The show was overall pretty good, coming from bands I USED to be into, but sort of lost interest past the age of 12 or 13. If you don't know who or what the hell I'm talking about Anthrax (with Belladonna), MegaDeth, Slayer, and Metallica played together in Bulgaria and filmed it for theaters (and dish apparently). They played in that order. This is my personal opinion of each band.
We've Come for You All
(STFU I like "Safe Home") Anthrax is my personal favorite of "The Big Four" just for the energy and fun attitude. Belladonna's voice was in top form, and plus I felt my pants get a little wet when they played "Man on the Silver Mountain". Overall impressive live show, but I still question where Belladonna pulled out a Red Bull.
Countdown to Extinction
This was probably the weakest band to be quite frank. Dave's voice was completely out of it, but that's okay for the most part since over half of their set was guitar solos.
I noticed that most of the solos that Kerry usually plays where handed over to Jeff odd, but didn't hinder the live show. I'll admit that I was distracted through this piece of the show due to the kid in front of me hardcore dancing and then telling me to eat a dick. It's safe to say that I declined his generous offer.
Metal Up Your Ass
Well I was very impressed by Metallica's live show considering I haven't liked anything they've done since the black album. They mostly kept it to Kill Em' All, and Master of Puppets which is probably the best thing. Plus there was crabwalking and 10% more "YEAH!".
|I saw Megadeth at Download Fest a couple of weeks ago, the band were tight as hell but Daves voice was completely burn out, really thin and weak. You could barely hear him. Broderick made up for it a bit though, what a monster.|
|MILK WAS A BAD CHOICE!!!|
|the whole concept of the "big four" is a joke|
|Really? When I saw 'deth on tour, Dave did awesome. Amazing show. Seeing Antrhax should have been awesome. |
|and yes someone was hardcore dancing in a theater...|

|That's a shame, I wanted to see Megadeth so bad.....|
