My weekend has been horrible. But before my girl left me, and before they placed a FOR SALE sign outside my house, and before my Ipod and computer both started fucking up.... I waited to the last minute to go to another Wicthaven show. This was now my 4th attempt at going to one of their shows to see 'em and enjoy them.
First time: Stoned and late (I think)
2nd: I was outside
3rd :Show ended too late and because I was tired, I left early.
Now these 3 bands have been playing together a lot. It's usually these 3 bands headlining (they rotate time to time) with a crap load of local bands opening. This time Witchaven was the headliner. And like any Vektor show, my friend had to go so I went with him.
This place was connected to local Punk/Metal shirt shop inside some plaza next to a 7-11 and a Carl's Jr. Ahhh that's badass... We were running late and like most Thrash shows....so were they. So by the time Exmortus was supposed to play, the 3rd band was barley getting started. Also this was the first time I've gone to a thrash show and not one person was drunk. Well... Okay one kid was passed out; he had hit his head and had to be picked up by an ambulance (HAHA!). And another thing... There was no pure Thrash posers. Just kids having a good time while supporting their friends.
We walked in, and a band called Chains Of Atlas were playing. These kids were all right. All their friends and family were there supporting them. They had a melodic sound to thier music. I was sitting down and I noticed my head bobbing. For kids, they ain't bad.

Up next was some fat guy wearing a Viking helmet with his band. They were called Quiverbone and after being bored, I went to 7-11.
Then came this horrible band named Suicide Addictive. Can't find shit on them... Thank Satan! I actually kinda fell a sleep during their set. Everybody wants to be Pantera nowadays. Singing about banging chicks when your a full out pervert band is cool. Singing about banging chicks when your in a tough guy metal band is gay.
Once again I will review a local band who I'm glad hit it pretty big. Exmortus was setting up. The lead singer and my friend, Konan was going back n forth getting stuff. I kept telling him to say, "R.I.P. OSAMA!" while he was on stage. He had to! He "liked" my post on Facebook! Me and my friends went to sit down near them. The local scene there seemed to love them and were cheering for them like crazy. Konan mentioned Osama and dedicated the song "In Hatreds Flame" to him. I was having a WTF! moment so I kept yelling "Rest in peace!" and "Konan's gay!". After the set which the kids loved by the way, I asked him about it and he said it wasn't meant to be taken that way. That liar!
