  1. I'm just meh on it, honestly. It's cool seeing Slash and Duff onstage together again with Axl, but outside of that, I'm not sure I feel any sense of purpose or urgency from this reunion. So far I don't get the sense they're much of a "band" outside of getting on the stage and playing the songs, same as the nu-lineups. I guess I'm holding out to see whether or not this is a legit reunion or just a last run at the till.
  2. Top 5 Concerts

    1. Death Grips, July 2015 - Simply put, I've never experienced more pure energy at any other show than DG. The energy of both the band and the crowd was insane - the band for being able to play nearly two hours straight without a gap between any of the 20 songs they played, the crowd for being crazy enough to be the only time I've ever feared for my safety in a crowd, the surreal fact that I was even seeing them at all given their "break up" a year earlier. Next level shit. 2. Protest the Hero, December 2013 - I'd been a fan of these guys for five years before I finally got the chance to see them, and in that time they became one of single most important bands to influence my taste in music and my own guitar playing. Besides being note-perfect the whole show, their singer Rody could have a career in stand up with how he can command a stage with banter in between songs. Got drunk, screamed my head off to every word, lost my voice, had a great time. 3. Circa Survive, March 2013 - I actually wasn't all that familiar with these guys when I first saw them, I only knew their most recent album at the time. But I was blown away by the crowd and the band, because the atmosphere of the show made it feel like a big ass family, in one of those impossible to explain ways. I immediately dug into the rest of the band's music after this show and fell in love with the band, so it was a pretty important one for me. Also, it's the only time I crowd surfed and got myself a better spot instead of going over the rail - I got dropped two people behind the rail and had a great view the rest of the night! 4. Cloudkicker, April 2014 - This dude is another huge influence on my music taste and playing, and this tour was (so far) a once in a lifetime chance to see him play. Ben never toured the Cloudkicker music before or after that month and besides getting to see a ton of my favorite music get performed two feet away from me, when I thought I'd never have that chance, I got to talk to Ben between sets and get a picture with him too. It made the trip back to PA from NY worth it despite the fucking torrential rain I almost washed my car out in. 5. Nine Inch Nails, August 2014 - Even though I almost never listen to NIN anymore, I couldn't pass up the Death Grips/NIN/Soundgarden tour (which DG later dropped off of). Soundgarden was good, but NIN's stage show and the pure emotion Trent could still pour into these twenty-something year old songs both left me speechless. By the time Hurt closed out the set it actually made me tear up a little, so I think it left a pretty powerful mark on me as far as live music goes.
  3. Last full album you listened to?

    The Fall of Troy - Doppelganger The Fall of Troy - Manipulator The Fall of Troy - Phantom on the Horizon On a total kick with these guys ever since they announced they're finally releasing a new album after 7 years. Forgot how much I loved some of these songs.
  4. Frank Ferrer

    I honestly don't get all the fuss over the drummer. Any rock drummer worth their salt could play these songs, they're not insanely technical or particularly nuanced. Frank is fine, Steven would've been fine, Matt would've been fine. I'm just happy the dude that's put ten years into this band got to keep his spot.
  5. It'd be cool to hear, but I think it might be weird for Slash and Duff considering Scott hasn't even been dead six months yet. Having another singer already doing his songs as part of a standard set seems a putting.
  6. What other deep cuts should they play?

    Plus it'd be pretty poetic to have all the guys play it together like it should've been in the first place. Like, "hey, I know I screwed this up the first time, how about we do it right now?".
  7. Axl's 2016 voice

    Some of the clips of him using the rasp from the Troubadour sound SUPER unhealthy. Especially that "HAH!" he drops in can pretty much hear how hard his vocal cords are slamming together and that is not good for the voice at all.
  8. Last full album you listened to?

    Yeah, me too. KNY was a little too clean and obvious for them and I'm really happy they've moved away from that, because this album is one that definitely needs a few listens to really sink in instead of just "getting" it right off the bat. (L)MIRL, Phantom Bride, and Rubicon are top tier Deftones.
  9. Last full album you listened to?

    Deftones - Gore So happy to hear them shift away from their more straightforward approach they've had the last two albums. Lots of mood and texture on here.
  10. What Are You Listening To 2016

    Bring Me the Horizon - The Fox and the Wolf
  11. Cool to see another Death Grips fan hanging around here.

  12. I don't think it helps all this speculation that, after all those years of mudslinging and open hostility, the guys have patched things up so...quietly. It just kind of happened and suddenly they're hitting the road again, with no real explanation. I could see why that'd make people suspicious of the guys' every movement.
  13. I'm still sorting out my feelings about this. I haven't really cared about this band in any real sense for years, and a reunion was the last thing I ever expected (or particularly wanted, for that matter). So for me, it's strange to see those three guys up there playing on the same stage after all this time and all the things they've said towards each other...but the more I see it, the cooler it gets. This is truly one of those absolute fuckin' long shot things that almost never happens, so I'm glad to see where this might go from here. Here's hoping they can hit a studio and knock out some songs once this tour wraps up.
  14. RIP Abominable Homan

    I never really interacted with him myself, but shit, he was one of those few posters I almost always read without fail. It's such a shame he's gone, and so young too. Godspeed, AH.
  15. I just had to do a double take...welcome back, Madison! Cool to see you around here again.
