I was irritated that the tickets and website had the show time listed as 7:00 PM. We entered the stadium at about 6:50 and Testament were already halfway through their set. What the fuck?

Testament and Slayer were great.

Megadeth made me cum in my pants 18 times and I'm STILL FUCKING HORNY.

I'm kind of curious why Slayer are headlining; no offense, I just think Megadeth has more name recognition and probably sells more albums, merch, and show tickets. I'm a big fan of both, so no big deal- just struck me as funny.

I totally agree. I saw Slayer back in 2004 and they were much better overall as well, just because Tom acknowledged the audience. He talked about how we didn't get a lot of bigger metal shows and that they would love to come back(lol they all say that..) This show, he didn't even say a word really. It was like they came to play their music and get going. Mustaine was quite vocal with our crowd, and even more so Chuck Billy. I mean, at the very least say the name of the city you are playing in..

I didn't even mention that, but I noticed the same thing. Dave and Dave were both very animated toward the crowd; Ellefson was always trying to get us pumped up with hand motions and trying to get us to chant, throw up horns, or sing along. Mustaine was quiet throughout the Rust album, then said "...that was Rust in Peace. We hope you enjoyed it!" and from the rest of the set on, was very, very interactive with the fans.

Chuck Billy, for the short part Testament's set I caught, was equally vocal and interactive. When they played "Into the Pit", he told the floor crowd to form a wall of death, then commanded each side to KILL EVERYONE ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE WALL. Then they charged each other and threw pussy little slaps and punches and elbows like socially stunted and athletically disfuctional metal fans are supposed to. Even with all the weak shots, it still looked violent as fuck and I'm sure a few people left in need of stitches. It was fun to watch. One of the dudes in the pit looked almost exactly like the former wrestler One Man Gang, and was close to the same size, too. He was at least 6'3" and 350lbs.

Slayer weren't as vocal, though Tom did thank the fans at the end of the set and we were treated to a nice encore. Mustaine actually made it sound like WE were gracing HIM with OUR presence and not the other way around! Even though it's all part of their craft, to play up to the fans and suck up to the hometown, it seemed like he really meant it. Megadeth actually sounded cleaner, heavier, AND tighter live than on their albums. I honestly thought that was impossible. Does that happen a lot at metal shows? I wouldn't have the experience to know.

Some bands really sound more crushing than on their records. One of the best examples, I've found, with the old and, more impressively, the new, is Suffocation. Good God can they slam live. The second best example is Pig Destroyer. When Scott Hull was doing the sound check I literally could not believe that the shaking in my chest was from one guitar and one amp. Naturally, this fact depends largely on the venue as I've had conflicting experiences with the above mentioned bands.

What's kept you from going to more shows, Chris? I don't know where New Beford is... is it that far away from any major cities?

No, not at all. I'm an hour from Boston (two hours in bad traffic), 45 minutes from Providence, and a little over an hour from Worcester, all of which regularly hold good metal shows.

The main reasons I haven't gone are financial and the fact that I don't have a lot of friends interested in metal. There are some shows I would be very willing to go to by myself, though, if need be. Even my friends that like some metal probably would be a hard sell to see some Morbid Angel, Cannibal Corpse, Suffocation, Decapitated, or anything extreme.

I seen Megadeth in Dec and it was, as always, an awesome show. I'm a little pissed this tour isn't coming to STL.

The best thing about the last Megadeth show I seen was I met and talked with Dave and Shawn after to show. They were tired but still made time for the fans that hung around.

Ah, I feel ya, although sometimes I actually enjoy going to shows alone a lot, kind of like going to see a movie on your own.

I'll be at that Long Beach, CA show in 2 weeks, belligerent as hell and regretting it by the end of the night due to the fact its on a Monday and I'm going to have to work in a few hours . Looks to be great, I'm just always happy to see bands I like a lot, especially these 3, which have never let me down in the past. I heard Slayer did ALL of Seasons in the Abyss and Testament played The Legacy in its entirety. Is there any truth to this?

I doubt Testament did the whole Legacy album... they have a shorter set (about 45-50mins) than Slayer and Megadeth, plus they apparently wanted to focus on playing more new stuff. It worked surprisingly well; I only caught half the set in Boston, like I said, but they worked three newer songs in with Practice What You Preach and Into the Pit. The newer songs sounded quite good live; I will be checking out their new album. It definitely would have been nice to hear a couple of songs off of The Legacy and Souls of Black, my two favorite Testament albums.

They might have been playing the whole Legacy album during a much earlier leg of the tour, like during the spring. Then again, I'm not sure if they were around. A lot of bands rotated into and out of the tour; I seem to remember Metallica, Anthrax, and Exodus all being part of tour at some point, but not at the same time. I could be wrong about that, though.

I have a brand new, never before opened, copy of the new album I could sell to you for very cheap. Interested?

Not really. I mean, I appreciate the offer, but once you factor in shipping, it'd work out about the same. Why are you selling it, anyway? Did you end up with two by mistake? I've downloaded it already and enjoyed it anywhere between mildly and wildly from song to song. I will be getting this one somewhere. Maybe I will buy yours.

Yeah I had bought it when it came out, and recently a friend of mine gave it as a gift. I told him I had it already and he just told me not to worry about it and do whatever I please with it. I'd be willing to sell it however much S&H is plus $3 or something

I saw this show when they played in Canada (NS), and it was sweet. I didn't see slayer when they came here in 2004 or whatever so I don't have a good comparison, but yeah Tom didn't seem to be enjoying it that much. Megadeth stole the show here though.
