I reviewed this band for you guys before. But they were playing(i saw em on the same bill with SMD and Exmortus I had to go!). Temple Of Dagon,my favorite local Crust band went up. Singer,Mr Red announced to the audience "We're Temple Of Dagon,and as you can tell,we're the only TRUE black metal band here." They started and I head banged like bobble head. Thrash kids seemed to like these guys. I was wondering how they got into the bill at first but I saw the drummer from Merciless Death/Dismantle(I see this guy at almost EVERY show I go to) helping them out. First I thought he was being a nice roadie but then I saw him setting up his drum set. I remember they needed a new drummer,and who better else to play for them than Gio:funny ass Thrasher and badass drummer. Temple finished their set and I told Kyle the bass player how much sexier they got with Gio and how much I love the band. Seriously download their EP,Book Of Azatoth for free. Its fuckin good.
When we got there we saw Bay area thrashers Zombie Holocaust setting up merch. Ive seen and talked to them before. Singer is a really nice ,great front man,and a cool dude. We were talking to him about the upcoming Bay Area Fest,Slaughter By the Water II(which hopefully I will be attending)and other stuff. He gave me and my buddy's ZH Party Patrol bracelets so we felt cool. They started to play and the kids were really diggin these guys. They played and I sang along to Boba Fett(their tribute to the star wars,metal nerds rule) and cheered em on. They usually have boogy boards and they throw Lei's around but not this time. Strike Force is the name of thier full debut. Check it out,you will dig it!

First band that played and probably the 2nd most band I wanted to see was Wormrot. This band is a 3 piece for Singapore. I wanted to see em the day before but I had no cash. Ive been a huge fan of these guys for a while and seeing them live made me love love them a million times more. Before they started I saw the guitar n drummer hanging out. I told them how much I love them and they were happy. I got a shirt right away. They started and People went nuts. Tho they were the first band to play at the tent,they were the band most people wanted to see there. They started and I went nuts. I kept screaming the whole time and headbanging and dancing stupidly. The singer told people to buy merch then I yelled "I alredy did!" and he pointed at me and said "Fuck yeah!"
I recommend everyone to see them. I know people who arnt even into grindcore and they became a fan of this band. The album "Abuse" is one of the best Grind albums of all time in my book.

After Primate I tried to go in line for Atheist. Yeahh it was bigger than a donkey dick so that wasn't gonna happen. Good thing I had a back up plan in case: Go back to the Grind tent and watch Nails since I seem to miss them every single time. This could've been my 3rd time seeing them for free too! But I ditched in the summer cause another band was playing(bad choice) and I couldn't get inside for the scion show :(. Plus I missed the Ceremony show last week. Anywho,I finally saw em. Of coarse the fan base was huge and the Grind tent ive been in all day got kinda crowded. I lost my spot upfront but fuck it. They did a great job and did almost everything of their Unsilent Death EP. If your into Crusty hxc this bands for you. Ill be doing more reviews for these guys soon.
After we went go get grub at Grill 'Em All(look it up) and pee brakes. Me and my two Grind buddies were tired as fuck. No one else was playing so I saw Black Breath again for the 3rd(free) time. As always the satanic hardcore band was great but 2 fights broke out and someone threw a stink bomb. After being at the Grind tent all day it time to leave it. Black Breath never disappoints.
I had to make a drastic move. I really didn't wanna miss Municipal Waste but I wanted to see Obituary. And after the line I saw for Atheist I didn't wanna risk it. So I sadly ditched Obituary for Thrash legends Death Angel. I saw em last year and they put on a really good show. I went upstairs to see them with my other pal cause we both wanted save our energy for the Waste! Overall Death Angel did a great job and I recommend them seeing them live if you have a chance. They are a big deal and all.

Finally I get down stairs and all my main buddys i was wit all day meet up. Unfortunately my buddy who went to Obituary came in like nothing. So that sucked. Waste was setting up. Twice that day I ran into Bass player Landphil(also of Cannabis Corpse). I hugged him and asked if there would ever a be a Waste/Cannabis Corpse/No Friends show. He laughed and didn't answer me when i asked if he was high. Guitar player Ryan Waste was fixing his Mic stand. People were yelling MW stuff to him but I yelled "VULTURE!". He looked for me then gave me a sticker. I yelled at drummer for a Black Army Jacket reunion. He smiled. Waste started place went nuts. Coming in the Roseanne theme song made it more brutal. I was screaming and singing along. The crowed was lame. No one tried to pick me up and some girl started punching me cause I accidentally grabbed her hair. Guess the was a lot of peoples first thrash show. Throwing beer at the audience and staring wall of deaths are one of the many reason EVERYONE need to see The Waste. All I can say about it is FUCK! WHAT A RUSHHHHH!
