LIVE SHOW REVIEW

Nothing is more exciting than a sick show line-up. Last night in Clifton Park, NY. Hatebreed hit the town with Fit For An Autopsy, Cro-Mags, Terror, and Obituary and they were all absolutely LETHAL.

Fit for an Autopsy had me hooked with their opener. I don’t even know what was happening in the room because I couldn’t look away. There is something about the heaviness of a death metal scream that commands your attention and singer, Joe Badolato’s vocals are deep and brutal. I was up decently close and they got the crowd pumped and quickly! So much double bass in the house. A constant smashing of lyrics and quick moving rhythms but my favorite part of their set was the synchronized super head banging. I mean, bending at the waist, kind of a slow-mo but with power head banging. Definitely wish they had more time on their set!

Cro-Mags were up next and the crowd was ready. I didn’t even realize how ready they were until they started playing and moving. So. Much. Energy. What I imagine ten 5-Hour Energies looks like all at once. This is when the crowd-surfing was apparent to me. (I mean it could have started earlier but I was engrossed in FFAA.) True to the hardcore music name, the punk aspect which is seemingly often looked over, is bright in Cro-Mags. You can not deny it between the speed, mad catchy riffs and the overall feel of the sound. Singer, John Joseph threw down some love to Lemmy (Motorhead) from when they took them on tour. He mentioned that their video for “We Gotta Know” was on MTV, you know back in the day when MTV played music videos. Salute to Headbangers Ball.

Terror was up next and what I felt through the night with each band, they got harder, louder, and more intense. Some of the first words out of vocalist Scott Vogel’s mouth was mandating the pit-goers to “crawl on each other’s heads!” This, friends, is when the night took a whole new meaning of vitality. I had been moving around to make sure I was not in or near the pit because I didn’t have my usual protector with me. At this point I knew where “safer” was, but also remembering that a pit can just open up anywhere is key. There was not a second that I didn’t see someone’s legs straight up in the air, or arms flying around. Terror is hard, there is no doubt in my mind.

Alright, people, onto Obituary. I moved up back to the front - sidestepping the pit and the waves of people floating across many arms -  because when Hatebreed is coming up next, you NEED to be up front. No excuses. Secure your positions!  Nothing short of God himself coming down could stop the demons from crawling up through the floorboards. That’s all I kept imagining. Death metal is a barbaric level in its own right and Obituary leaves you broken before you even know it. Brutal, constant ear smashing beats and vocals from John Tardy to bring you to your knees. Somehow the low, evil sounds of the music and the highs and lows of Tardy’s voice level it all out.

Finally, Hatebreed takes the stage and everyone loses their damn minds. This is a part of the 25th Anniversary Tour and they are really humble about being able to tour for so long. Jamey Jasta knows how to talk to the crowd and get them moving even more. I swear more people showed up out of nowhere and it was a packed house. I strategically placed myself between some tall, stacked guys. Usually those guys just move their heads and don’t join in on the pit festivities. Now, up to this point, the crowd-surfing was a little more than intermittent. I keep mentioning this because at this point I’d seen some dudes run off the stage and land to surf, but now we’ve leveled up to flying. I saw people, maybe the same person, jump and catch air to land and continue over the crowd to the front. It was unreal, at least for me!  When the words, “front to back and side to side” were uttered the WHOLE place moved. If your shoes were glued to the floor, it didn’t matter, you were literally touching at least seven people around you. You were MOVING. Jamey took some moments to thank Ted Etoll, local club marketing director, and also sent some love into the universe to Lemmy as well. I had to retreat at one point when Jasta demanded a circle pit around the pillar I was standing near for “I Will Be Heard.” Not me, not today! Even from the back of the venue of Upstate Concert Hall, which kind of forms a V with a bar in between, it was still incredibly loud. Naturally, there were more people just kind of hanging out and enjoying the music but I tell you what, they were still moving and singing along. You know greatness of a band and their following by how attentive the fans are even in the depths of yelling concert conversations. If I need to explain that then you need to see a show, STAT. 

It was truly an incredible show with people even coming from as far as Australia! I left with my left ear ringing and a definite concert hangover the next day. Rock on!
