Are they still going to call him Evil D (ildo)?

Yeah, once you've played with that, you can't ever really regain respect...

Also note the extreme fretting skill being displayed by those two.

lol, I agree with you.  What's going on with David ? I hope he won't dress like that in the upcoming tour. I think he's a poser but he has one of the best vocals ever.

I don't have a lot of time or energy at my disposal right now, so here's a basic rundown of what I'm guessing you're curious about.

Setlist:

Rapture
Pain Divine
Maze of Torment
Lord of Alll Fevers and Plague
Sworn to Black
Blasphemy
Chapel of Gouls
Where the Slime Live
God of Emptiness
Blood On My Hands
Nothing But Fear
Day of Suffering
World of Shit (the Promised Land)

*note that the lack of songs from Blessed... is the result of the venue shortening their set at the last minute.

David Vincent: full of energy throughout, offering precise rhythm and a vocal performance reminiscent of some of the more 'throaty' songs off of Covenant.  Oh, and he managed to keep himself from spanking any tied up men or shoving anything up his ass.

Tony Norman: simply played his parts.  Nothing special, especially considering that Eric Rutan used to hold down his spot on the stage.

Trey: incredible.  The man plays as if he's trapped inside a phone booth but still manages to demand the attention of the audience through the sheer mastery of his instrument that he possesses.  Lava indeed.

Pete: ditto.  The man is a human battering-ram.  The only low point for him during the show was when his snare drum malfunctioned and he was forced to use a floor tom instead.  Well, that and the fact that he played a few drum solos simply to appease some screaming fans (it got to be a bit much after a while considering that he opened the show by warming up).


I'm not much for self-indulgence in music but, since we're all familiar with Morbid Angel's first few albums, the fact that they played them with passion and precision is really all that is worth mentioning.  Does this mean that they'll reunite with David Vincent and produce something fresh and innovative?  Probably not.  But at least they aren't running around the country butchering their finest material a la Slayer (how's that for the lesser of two evils?).

No, I didn't go.  I had made up my mind prior to it that I would not be going, but at the last second changed it and was unable to make it anyway.  I'm feeling a bit of regret having missed it now.

It was a great show here in California.

I was surprised to see them play songs from Altars of Madness!

Too bad they couldn't dig up Mike Browning!!! As weird as it sounds, Abominations of Desolation is my favorite MA album, with Formulas Fatal to the Flesh coming up fast. Vincent isn't on either. They DEFINITELY should have kept Tucker, even though I heard that Gateways sucked.
Hey, was Heretic any good?
