No shock dwwaino but you know what I am talking about. Thank **** we won't see them at D666, Incantation, Blasphemy etc. They probably think Vomitor is 'noise'.
I know the sorts exactly. I actually forgot about them until I went to Soundwave a few years back and noticed those sorts watching Mayhem who didn’t know anything outside Freezing Moon.

Who's going to the CC 'BTR/A' show? I am keen for that. BTR is one of my favourite thrash metal albums.
Definitely my favourite Sep album. I’ve filled my live quota for the year though haha.

I've seen JP with the Falcon a few times. I think he has a great presence and energy. Not so sure about Sneap. Thumbs down to the casual metal 'fans' who know one or two Slayer songs and spent most of JP's set screaming 'Slayerrrrrr', drinking bogan juice and being annoying ****s. The clowns probably think Dissident Aggressor is a Slayer song. Actually, they probably don't know anything past Angel of Death.
hahahahaah, was quitely hoping slayer would play it and rob would come on and do vocals with tom.

Actually I haven’t been out to a show in ages. I think 2017? That was my first in a while too and the landscape had changed. I hope my jacket doesn’t get me kicked out these days.

Haha. JP did it when they toured here in 08 or whenever it was. Was ******* awesome.
would've been sick, when songs like jihad and when the stillness come, you could tell half of the crowd had no clue what they were because they just went silent basically with no one singing. Did you end up seeing Alien Weaponry?

Absolutely, re: slayer.
Saw that they played 'captor of sin' in melb, whilst sydney got 'black magic'.
Would have loved another song or two from the SNM or HA albums (instead of payback, disciple, jihad etc), but that's probably just me being a picky/old.

Am 50/50 on the cavalera show. Love BTR and Arise (not quite as much), but Max looks like he's struggling to keep up playing wise.on the vids i've seen. Not sure i want to walk away disappointed...

We got Black Magic and Captor Of Sin. Lot of focus on Seasons (Blood Red, War Ensemble, Seasons In The Abyss, Born Of Fire, Dead Skin Mask), though I would have liked another 10 minutes for another song or two from RIB. The only song I would have dropped from the setlist would have been Payback. From GHUA, a much better song (and imo their mist underrated) would have been God Send Death. Jihad went better than expected live, but I think it's one of their most overrated songs; from that album, Flesh Storm is the standout (to me it's good enough to have been on Seasons), but Jihad was written to be deliberately controversial so it always gets a gig.

True, same in sydney.
And not to sound like an 'old school or nothing' guy (hate worldwide is one of my favourite slayer songs ever for example), a couple more oldies would have been great

COS was awesome. Didn't expect it. We got Black Magic too. Would have liked Die By The Sword, Evil Has No Boundaries, Altar of Sacrifice, Behind the Crooked Cross.....I can go on and on. Agree on the newer stuff but I guess they have to play some of it for those fans. We virtually got half of the SITA album.

I think material from the later albums holds up well live. DIM and GHUA are the albums I don't get into. Ones after that are fine - not classic but some stormers which hold up well live (Repentless).

Ah ok, must have misread the setlist site and looked at sideshow list instead of Melb Download show.
Prefer black magic to captor myself (i know that's probably blasphemy for some here!), so no complaints.
Agree re: jihad, the intro or the deliberately provocative lyrics (just seemed to be trying too hard) never really did it for me, so not a favourite. Payback a little bit the same.
Repentless was great though.

I actually didn't rate Repentless when it came out, but gave it a spin in preparation for Download. It's certainly no classic, but a lot better than than I originally gave it credit for. Both the title track and When The Stillness Comes were worthy additions to the setlist, and Delusions Of Saviour was perfect as a taped intro.

I liked the touch of using the Hanneman/Heineken logo as the backdrop for Angel of Death, and also that Gary had it on one of his guitars.

Like you mentioned earlier for the Sydney show, Tom was a bit emotional at the end. The big screen actually caught him wiping away a tear.

Gee I’m so glad I spent the day at Gumbuya World. I know it depends on the lineup but guess I’ll consider going next year. Sounds like everyone got something out of the day and had a great time
Look up last years lineup. So far Download in Australia has been as big a miss and then a hit as you can get.

Had a great day as well. Despite missing a lot of the grunge thing when it first happened, I though AIC were very good. Judas Priest were entertaining as hell (I counted four costume changes for Rob Halford), watched a bit of Slayer who were great but I was there for Ghost and they delivered and then some. Great set, terrific stage show, close to perfect sound: they've got the whole Alice Cooper/KISS/Blue Oyster Cult/Black Sabbath 70s rock thing down perfectly and given that's my favourite period of music I was always going to be a big fan.

Was Priest a bit on the quiet side or was that just me? I tried pushing to the front for them in the hope theyd get louder but I wasn't too successful.

Slayer just absolutely blew it out of the park though didn't they? Such a good setlist too.
