    Yeah, was a great show, great setlist covering their career.
    Kind of wish Anthrax could have played a bit longer.

    Yeah that’s put me off. The best seats there are approx $250. I wouldn’t want to be anywhere but close in that stadium.

    And it’s a horrible location to get to from my place. I’ve seen them 10 times previously so I’m thinking I will give it a miss (although my other half is keen to go as she’s not ever seen them).

    How do Anthrax sound these days? I can’t say I’ve ever been a massive fan although they have some awesome songs..

    They sound okay if you’re into that style of ‘metal’, they’ve never really grabbed my attention, I’ve found their music to be a tad vanilla for my taste.

    yeah I think I’ll be giving it a miss. I’d say they will announce a few more dates per city from the looks of the schedule, there’s quite a few days between cities. f**k knows what happened behind the scenes in regards to venue hire but QEII simply sucks ass. They should have just done 2-3 nights at the entertainment centre. I know it’s out in the sticks but at least there’s a train line there and a considerable amount of parking, QEII has neither.

    Their last album was pretty shitful too IMO, It’s not enough to encourage me to go, if it was their last tour than for sure I’d be there but alas....

    I thought they sounded good. I've been a fan of Anthrax for a while.

    Witj Metallica, I'll probably go. When I heard it was a stadium tour I just assumed it was Suncorp. Can't even remember the last time I was at QE2. Probably a Bronco's parra game while Suncorp was renovated.
    Even Carrarra stadium would have been a better choice.

    I liked a number of songs off the last few albums. Asides from st anger their albums in recent times have had a lot of good stuff.

    If they did three shows at BEC again I’d go to all three again especially given the stage and drone set up their indoor shows have on this tour.

    I'm willing to pay the $250 for ANZ Stadium just to see Slipknot. Having Metallica as the headline is just a bonus. Always wanted to see them but wouldn't be paying that much if they had someone else opening for them.

    Oi, meekins!

    Any of you checked out Mark Morton's solo album?

    It's well worth a listen - dude is talent plus.

    If you’re in the mood for something unrelentingly extreme and nasty, Pissgrave’s second album picks right up where the first left off:

    it depends who’s running the desk. His vocals can get lost in the mix deluxe if it’s not elevated in volume because the music is pretty intense. Check out Stonesour mate if you wanna hear his voice at it’s best.

    If they’re playing Burn My Eyes right through it’ll be worthwhile

    Holy f**k, the original MH is pretty much back!!!!!!


    i followed him (Kontos) on instagram when i had it, I didn’t think he was doing much music wise from memory (more
    bikes n shit) glad he’s back on the sticks along with Logan. Might be the rejuvenation of the band it’s desperatley needed since their 2nd album. I’m there if they come to Oz.
