Well, the gig was last night and it was the worst gig I've ever been to. Not because of the music mind - all the bands were on form, the ones I actually saw that is.

I knew it was going to be one of those nights when the coach taking me to Manchester arrived an hour late. But that didn't matter much because the show started an hour late too. I thought my luck was in as I got to see Anata kick arse with 5 slabs of genius (all from their new album).

However, Thus Defiled and especially Rotting Christ went on for an age. They were both OK considering I don't like BM that much but by the time they'd finished it was 11pm. Decapitated took the stage at 11:25 and the last coach back to Liverpool was at 11:45. I saw THREE songs!

What I did see, fuckin' ruled! They opened up with the opener from the Negation, then played a track from WoC (not too good with names) and then launched into Nihility (Anti-Human Manifesto). But that was the end of my night as I had to rush back to the station.

But that's not the end of a piss-taking night. The coach back to Liverpool arrived an hour late as well so I could have seen the Decapitated set after all. I was fuckin' seething.

At least I got to see Anata - they were excellent and I hope they stick around in the UK for another tour. As for Decapitated, there's always next time...
Album of the day:

Red Sparowes - At the Soundless Dawn
