I just saw this in person, with a “full” band, and I’m seriously having trouble comprehending/digesting the awesomeness. I can’t recall the last time I’ve had my mind blown on this level. It was totally surreal. Usually, clapping or cheering is the normal response between songs at a rock show, but tonight after each song I couldn’t help myself from sitting in the balcony at the Anaheim HOB, shaking my head, laughing and trying to understand how shredding (tastefully) on this level is even possible.
Couldn’t have put it better myself. Saw these support Between The Buried And Me in September and my reaction was exactly the same as the above.
