American Carnage Recap
It all started with this guy.
Ha! what a looser. There were a total of 2 douche bags preaching to the masses but in reality and as you would expect, no one was listening and no one cared!. We were there to have a good old time and that my friend, it was…
Long Beach Arena, Ca… Testament was Fucking amazing! They mostly played new material for the exception of “Practice what you Preach” as you know was one of their best hits in the earlier years. Apart from that, the energy was high. Chuck Billy is still one of my favorites front-man of all times and he seems to get better as time passes.
Megadeth took center stage next. Holy Wars exploded from the speakers and the crowd went mad. Megadeth had taken the already high energy that Testament had injected into a new level. Hangar 18 was the next song and I knew right there what was happening. They were gonna play the “Rust in Peace” album on its entirely. Chills went through my whole body. Now, I have heard that there were doing this but what I did not know was that they were doing it on this tour. Amazing!!!! After the “Rust in Peace” they hit all of the fan favorites. Symphony of Destruction, Peace sells, Trust, etc. Needless to say, Megadeth delivered… again.
The mighty Slayer, and apparently, the crowds favorite hits the stage. I must admit (and you can hate me for it) I am not a slayer fan… I know, right? Now, don’t get me wrong. I don’t hate Slayer, I support them for what they stand for and their influence into the music that I have love for the majority of my life. I buy their albums and buy tickets for their tours. I know that they are a amazing band and the crowd agrees. The pit was engulfed in what seems to be fire from the pits of hell. The lighting work for Slayer was superve to say the least.
All in all, we had a great time. Long Beach has shown SDMETAL that you can have a good as time and still rock you ass off. Everyone was awesome and for that, we thank you.
Stay Brutal Long Beach, we thank you again from the San Diego Source of Local Metal… SDMETAL.COM
