    My favorite quote:

    Matt, who's the got the "frontman pumping up the crowd" thing down, is leading the crowd sing-along. After one round of it, he gives the crowd the "so-so" sign to indicate that we need to be louder on the next try. On the next round, we nail it and it's time to praise us. While most frontmen would include the F-word in that praise ("F' yeah!" or "You guys f'ing nailed it!"), Matt yells "Very nice!!!"

    I love this band! :D

    Hey bud! I just got settled back in SC so I haven't been posting on the forums for a few days.

    It was great to meet you too! I was really pleased with the energy for my first show with the guys. One of the things I wanted to bring to the band was that live energy. I was a bit shielded by the drums, but seeing the front row (I remembered seeing you specifically, which was why I gave you my drum sticks from the show) fist pumping and singing was awesome. Despite the so-so sound at times (I couldn't tell, but that was the feedback I received from the majority of people over the weekend at PP USA), I think my first show with the guys went very well.

    I'm glad you got to meet my dad and be up front with him for Overkill! I'm a big power/prog metal guy, but I also like my classic thrash metal like my dad. We've seen Overkill live many times, and they haven't disappointed yet. I ended up holding down the mosh pit most of the time lol just happened to form right behind me.

    I have to say, I haven't been the biggest fan of Gift of Music live. But being new to the band, I knew it was a live staple for them so I deferred to them. But after this last show I have been won over because it was a high point in the set. I typically get better as the set goes on, so most of the high points for me were towards the end of the set list (Gift, Demon, and I AM). I am with you though - Demon was my favorite for the night. I wasn't paying attention to the house music, so I missed Serpent's Kiss if it was being played.

    I remember that microphone stand falling, but I missed that quote hahaha!

    No shows planned currently. We spent most of the summer rehearsing the special set for Denver and then PP USA. I forsee us working on new material after this now that I am familiar with the discography, and then see what show offers come in. I am ready to get to work.

    labarum, no I didn't see you or SeaStorm. I would for sure have said hello if I had. SeaStorm I'm so glad you made it down for the show Wednesday. Sounds like yall had a great time. I heard only good reviews from other people I talked to over the weekend.
    I was not able to make it to town until late Thursday so I was only there Friday and Saturday. I met Patrick on Friday and spoke with Matt on Saturday so that made me very happy even though I had to miss their set Wednesday.
