Monstrosity is a personal favorite--and a band I've yet to see. Many thanks for this notice!

On their recent tour with Dismember/Grave, Vital Remains was the type of band whose music and stage act were a complete insult to the few intelligent people in the audience.

I can't say anything about Monstrosity.

Probably catch them at death fest.

Well, I saw them last night.  They were short a touring rhythm guitar player, and were allowed to play only five songs so Vapid Remains could play for an entire hour.  Besides the fact that the drums overpowered the guitar and bass, I would say that they played well.

Songs played:

1. ? (Something mid-paced, I assume from "Spiritual Apocalypse)
2. Firestorm
3. Imperial Doom
4. The Angels Venom
5. ?

I thankfully arrived halfway through Forever in Terror's set, and I didn't stay for the mediocre Deicide cover band, seeing as how the meathead antics of the lead singer during the Grave/Dismember tour are still fresh in my mind.

In summary: attend at your own risk.  And if you do go, be sure to arrive at least two hours after the doors open.
