No - like I said, I skipped out on going to see them play a show in Dayton, OH w/ The Business and some other folks, and that Raybeez died within a month of that show happening.


Oh ok. I was just wondering if you had seen them before his death.

What's the name of that Indiana festival? Maybe Dudefest or something similar? I *think* a good friend of mine plays in Get Rad, and know he no longer drums for In Defence, so if he's in the former, I may check them out. Otherwise, In Defence is really good hardcore.


Yeah, Dudefest 2009. Lineup looks really awesome.

so late on this, but I had no idea the original drummer from Sodom died a couple of months ago.

You didn't know he died Crim? They're doing a benefit (I think in Germany) memorial show for him. It's Sodom, Tankard, and other 80s thrash bands. Angelripper only wanted 80s bands to play. There was some controversy because Destruction was going to be on the bill, but one of the members (I think Schmier) got all bitchy because their logo was smaller compared to some of the other bands, and they cancelled their appearence. Angleripper and them apparentely made up because Destruction is back on for the show. I also didn't know that Destruction had a new album put out in 2008. Anyone check it out?

Anyone else into Tygers of Pan Tang? Ridicilous band name but I've been listening to Wild Cat lately and it's awesome. I was finally able to get a hold of it after looking for it for a while. I love all those NWOBHM bands.

Witchhunter Memorial show will have Sodom, Destruction, Artillery, Assassin, Tankard and I think one other band I'm not familiar with.

Tygers of Pan Tang are awesome btw :bouncy:

I am seeing Darkane and Warbringer tomorrow night as they support Soilwork with Swallow The Sun :bouncy:

No, I've never really been to any shows. I've only been to a few and they've been local acts. I'd go to see Fuck the Facts, Master, and Grinder. Don't really know the other bands too well.

I downloaded a bootleg of Megadeth's first show but I'm trying to figure out the date and location. What was the first gig that Kerry King played at? Was it 2/19/84 in San Fransisco? That's the one I have. I came across another one that had Megadeth's first show as 2/17/84 at Ruthie's Inn in Berkeley. Can anyone clear this up for me? I'm not sure of the one I have.

Saw Cynic last night! Skipped Meshuggah to go hang out with Cynic and got my copy of Focus and TIA signed, along with a pair of drumsticks that Sean Reinert gave me. Very surreal experience, though I must say, Faceless and Meshuggah fans are annyoing as hell.

Wow, good stuff CrimGhost! :cold: Smoke a fatty with'em?

I had mentioned awhile ago possibly going to see Razor in Manitoba. Tickets are only 20 and my friend can get plane tickets for 60 so I think I just may end up going :bouncy:

The fact that both King Diamond and Lemmy are going to be in GH: Metallica makes my penis hard.

I live in Berkeley. Its my understanding that this show was at the Berkeley Square which is on University avenue in Berkeley. I have seen Death play there back in the day. I was really depressed when they closed it down.

By the way, where did you get the bootleg? I wouldn't mind grabbing a copy myself.

Damn you xevious...

Ok. So their first show was actually at that place in Berkeley? Then their 2nd show much have been in San Fran. Death? Nice. That must have been really cool seeing them back then.

There were 3 metal clubs at the time: The Stone in San Francisco (they turned it into a high scale strip club which may of closed down. I don't keep up with the strip clubs of SF.), The Berkeley Square (it is now a 'Copy World') and Ruthies Inn (which is now a soul nightclub).

For awhile, the rock scene was looking bleak here but there are some interesting clubs that are popping up in Oakland- they seem promising.

The Death Show was great. I remember Gene Holgan was the drummer; He has a very distinct style of drumming.

Can anyone recommend bands/albums similar to Pentagram, Saint Vitus, and Candlemass? I've been listening to them a lot lately and I'm really getting into it.

I'm not sure. I just checked out Epicus and thought it was great. I'm going to buy their new one when it comes out.

Anyone listen to Brimstone? They got some power metal/thrash stuff going on with some great harsh vocals.

Solitude Aeturnus is very similar to Candlemass, Witchfinder General to Pentagram and can't think of one similar to Saint Vitus as I didn't like them and deleted all of their stuff right now.

As far as I know, Candlemass' upcoming album "Death Doom Magic" has not yet leaked. It should be very good based on some of the samples I heard on MySpace, the European page of their label.

Yeah I had already checked out Witchfinder. They're really good.
