Ok. The band played great as always. I loved One to sing the Blues, Overkill, Going to Brazil and Bomber.
But, ....and I may catch some shit for this....but I felt like the band shouldve played more of their faster, louder stuff considering it was a thrash metal festival.
Yes, I understand the band can do whatever they want and they have their reasons.
But the crowd was going insane for Slayer and the thrash band that was on right before MH....but when Motorhead came on, nearly everyone just stood there gazing onto the stage and there was cheering but not the roards I heard for Slayer and the other thrash bands there.
I mean it doesnt really make sense to yell at 28,000 thrash fans, "Let's see how loud you motherf'ers can get!!"....only to go into Damage Case or The Chase right after that. If they would've done that and then tore into One to Sing the Blues, that would've gotten people more amped, don't you think?
I LOVE Bomber but maybe On your Feet as an opener followed by Burner(just examples) may have gotten the crowd going more.
ON the other hand....
Maybe it was because there were so many younger Slipknot fans there who really didn't know much about MH..what do you guys think??
