Sound: Amazing. Metal is the greatest thing to see live, and Slipknot is pure f--king metal. All the bands were amazing, soundchecks were quick, quality was awesome. I loved every second of it. // 10

Perfomance: The whole crowd was full of raw energy and agression. People also really knew what they were doing. The guitarist from the opener, Unearth, was totally nutz and great to watch, he'd pick his nose, eat it, and climb ontop of an amp and play a solo behind his head! He even helped with some singing in a Killswitch Engage song. And Slipknot was just everywhere, going crazy all the time. A constant surge of power from their first song, The Blister Exists. // 10

Overall Impression: Took place at Shaw Conference Center, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Opener was Unearth with direct support, Killswitch Engage. Tickets were about $40 but I would have payed anything for this show. My friend showed up without a ticket and, luckily, found a scalper. He had to pay $100 but he did it in a heartbeat. This show makes me want to drive down to vancouver and catch the last Canadian show. There were even girls flashing the bands. // 10
