To you metal guys out there. True ambassador.

Saw Slayer in 2001, I think in December. It was near my birthday, I was still in high school and was unsure if my vehicle at the time would get me to the show and back. It was at Bogarts in Cincinnati which was only about 1.5-2 hours away. It was a school night which meant it was during the work week and I told my mom if she simply just took me to the show, that would be my birthday present, period. I would buy the tickets and pay for everything, just get me there. She agreed, thinking, yea this is a sweet deal.
Me and a buddy get there and wait in line to get in and everything was fairly normal. We were easily the youngest people in the entire place. I was a junior and my friend was a freshmen and my mom had no idea who the band we were seeing happened to be and never listened to them. The two opening bands I remember were pretty awful. They were some kind of nu-metal type band and I never really cared much for any of that. Slayer opened with Disciple and it was easily the loudest show I've ever been to. The crowd was great and if anyone is familiar at all with Bogart's there are two large speakers on both sides of the stage that were probably 12-15 feet tall (they could be shorter, it's been about 5-6 years at least since I've been back) in which a very drunk individual climbed to the top of one of them, did a front flip into what I'm guessing he thought was a crowd that would break his fall but instead everyone scattered like you would imagine and he landed directly on his back. Before he jumped off the speaker, he was yelling at the crowd basically to just get attention. Jeff Hanneman looked directly at him (he was on Hanneman's side of the stage) not really giving him much of a thought until he jumped then as he landed on his back on the floor. Hanneman smirked and just shook his head while continuing to play. They closed with Angel of Death.
After the show was over it took a while to get out of the place and once we did we saw cops lining the streets with a couple of fire trucks, at least 4-5 ambulances and a helicopter flying over head. My mom was parked down the street and seeing all of this went up to the front door and asked what happened inside and they replied, "Nothing at all yet, this is just a precaution when Slayer plays here." That was the first and last show my mom ever took me to. It was a good one though.
+1, great story man.
I can't stand new metal or melodic metal like Killswitch engage and crap like that.
I listen to Dying Fetus, Pig Destroyer, Nasum, Black Dahlia Murder, Nile.. Heavy stuff. And I listen to gangster rap. Hah, metal and rap all day for me.
Haha yea, I'm about the same, minus the whole rap thing. I saw Nile in either 2002 or 2003. It was right after In Their Darkend Shrines came out. It was also in Cincy. They had 3 other bands opening for them and one of them was Vader. They ended their set with Raining Blood. Vader and Nile were both great that night.
I saw Dying Fetus probably around 2004 or so. It was the tour that Hate Eternal was headlining but it was like a week or so after HE got into a bad car accident in between shows in which they had to drop off the rest of the tour. The show was in Columbus and ended up only costing like $5 total. It was a really good time.
Good times for sure.
I almost don't like Nile because they're too good. Soo damn technical and they just keep switching it up with these crazy riffs the entire song.
It's weird but my friend and I were talking about that the other day. Hard to listen to Nile bc they are so damn talented.
I've hung out with Dying Fetus a few times. My best friend plays in a band and they've opened for them, played at Maryland Deathfest and literally all over the world, Dubai, Mexico, Germany (Obscene Extreme) and all over. I've had the opportunity to hang out with a lot of big time, underground grind and metal bands. Pretty cool, most of the people in the metal scene are good people.
Yea, most are pretty laid back that's for sure. If you haven't already, check out Origin. If you like technical, you'll like them. Their newest album is Entity. Good stuff.
This is my friends band. Kevin Tally nicknamed him the "Blast Beat Messiah", they're getting really big underground but they play grind core which isn't very popular. He's the drummer and he's extremely talented. This video is a concert in Dubai. It's very hardcore and I don't know if you'll like something this grindish.
I'm going to check out Origin though, sounds good.

They've gotta be doing something right if they're playing in Dubai. That's really cool.
Just watched a guitar lesson video by the guys from Nile, glad I look at this thread.
