Bla-bla-bla Discussing live shows

I was going to post in the existing thread, but haven't found it...

What do you expect from live shows? What is important to you? Rate live performance ( 0- 10) ! Feel free to post videos and comment what exactly you like and don't like...

Here's the first example!

What do you think about it:

?

That was terrible. They look like boring people and they're not a very good band either.

I expect to enjoy it. Basically.

It all depends on different factors. If I go to see Rammstein, I expect simple but effective songs with some insane pyro and lighting as well.

If I go to see Opeth, I expect the perfection of all the songs to stand out as I would expect them on the album.

I haven't yet been to a bad gig and I've been to many bands that I like and ones my Dad likes. Sometimes, I enjoy my dads bands live over my own because some just turned out to be terrible live.

Was looking forward to seeing Testament with Judas Priest a few years ago. They sucked arse. Majorly. Sounded crap live and the singer did nothing but air guitar with his mic stand. I then saw ZZ Top whom my Dad wanted to see and absolutely loved them.

I'm finding myself increasingly apathetic towards live music. Last year I can count on two fingers the number of bands who stood out to me (Falloch and Old Corpse Road). Even bands I adore who I saw were just ok, but better or record.

Tokyo Tapes is probably Scorpions' best album.

Black metal's a recorded form, really. Seen plenty who are good but only a few that really stand out, and most of the time those aren't the ones with the best albums (see: Watain)

Uni's pretty much eaten my social life, plus I've been less and less tolerant of large crowds,.. or any crowds. But the last gig I've been to actually restored some of the enthusiasm. The Black Conjuration lineup at an Adelaide gig, namely:

Oath of Damnation (missed them, never heard them before, so can't really say)

Intellect Devourer (good, solid old-school death metal. not original, really, they just play straight up DM, but with lots of conviction and drive, so it's still enjoyable to listen to)

Rote Mare (essentially the same as ID, but a trad. doom band instead. You could hear bits and pieces of every patch the band members were wearing, basically, hahah... Good band, but again didn't step beyond the perimeter of "solid performance")

Innsmouth - good band but wasn't able to watch all of their set

Mournful Congregation - now this is where things started to get genuinely interesting. The live lineup, for those who haven't had the pleasure of seeing them perform - is three guitarists, bassist and a drummer; mind you, without any typical "atmospheric" instrumental inserts, these guys manage to construct a completely different world around you. There isn't much movement going on stage, yet the presence is overwhelming and for some time you can forget you're standing on a sticky floor with beer glasses bouncing around your feet, and just immerse yourself in the soundscapes. Much heavier than on record, and the tension build up and release from the harmonic interplay between the three guitars has lots more space to breathe, hence has far greater impact.

Inverloch - essentially a transmutation of the old dISEMBOWELMENT, earthy and bleak. Just as much presence as MC had, but the atmosphere they evoke is something more of a graveyard vibe. Absolutely crushing sound, phenomenal musicianship, and some really weird facial expressions on behalf of the bassist... couldn't decide whether he was just taking the piss, having fun or it was something from the depths of his own black black soul :P

And to close off the night, Portal played what is probably one of their strongest sets. A truly suffocating, relentless barrage of dissonance and ugly music, it draws you in like a whirlpool or a swamp, but by the time they're done, your mind has completely disintegrated.

A bit dramatic for a recount, but I figured I'd mention some of the impressions. On topic, I can highlight very high level of musicianship from all bands, and an experience that went beyond a simple music performance for the three acts in the second half. Certainly a gig of a high caliber that I haven't had a chance to witness in a while, - but as far as expectations go, it's exactly what I'd like to get from a live show.

Indeed - that is essentially what I could say about all three bands I mentioned, and certainly true in regards to Inverloch. You forget about everything else around you.

Have they officially retired Transcendence now? I think I saw one of their last shows doing those songs...I feel very very lucky.

Not really man, at least at the Adelaide show we got The tree of life and death, and excoriate... don't know what their long term plans are but it's still in the set for now.

They are pretty special. Such a powerful wall of sound considering there's only 5 of them, Alan as such a commanding stage presence. I'm sure I mentioned it before, but despite Alan's voice going they still managed to be one of the best bands at the festival when they were at bloodstock despite being instrumental for most of the set.

I definitely don't expect this anyway - Deicide with Glen refusing to sing

I don't give a damn whether or not a perfomance is sloppy as long as the proper energy and passion is in there. Case in point: Brocas Helm.

Just got my tickets for the Iron Maiden, Megadeth, Anthrax, Sabaton, Overkill show. It'll be my second time seeing all those bands, except for Sabaton. Never seen them before. If I had to rank the shows for the ones I've already seen it would go:

Iron Maiden
Anthrax
Overkill
Megadeth

I know I'm a Meshuggah fanboy, but, objectively, aside from Tool, Korn and Jethro Tull, Meshuggah pull of the best live show I've ever seen.
