Disturbed Rocked Halifax!!
May 30, 2009
The welovemetal team was pretty much jacked all day for the concert; we got here early because of the interview with Dan from Disturbed. When the doors opened we went and got our seats and with this venue all the seats were pretty good. I first noticed that the stage for the first Band was going to be very small! And when "Art Of Dying" came on stage they were literally stepping over their gear to get from one side of the stage to the other, but they played their hearts out.
After the first set we went to talk to the guys from "Art of Dying" and the next band that hit the stage was "Skindred" with a little bigger stage. These guys are a Raggae Metal band, yes I know…Raggae and metal?!! Anyway we missed most of the set because we were trying to get to talk to the first band. After "Skindred" was done, (and I might add I was impressed with the tear down between each set, seemed to go quick and orderly, but with a break in between) and then a Band called " All That Remains " flew on stage, lots of screaming with these guys! And he could sing good as well, the music was very heavy but sounded great! And the kids on the floor seemed to love this band. There were also a few circle pits on the floor during their set and lots of crowd surfing.
Then is was time for " Disturbed ", David was wheeled on stage in a straight jacket with a classic "Hannibal mask" on, and the kids went nuts! Fists in the air and cheering was very impressive right from the start. After each song the crowed was getting more and more DISTURED! Their performances went on without any mishaps and David sounded great! Very awesome live show! And I was also very impressed when the guys came back on stage to do their encore;"Mike" (Drummer) got to do a solo! And wow, being in the small venue the DRUMS kicked our Asses!! It ripped right through us like a freight Train passing by! Anyway, all and all it was great to see Disturbed again and they definitely Kicked ASS!
