- Battery put on a great show.
- They had a new singer and lead guitarist for this show.
- The band had some technical issues during Creeping Death. Sounded like the intro to One started playing right after The Ecstasy of Gold and either a bass and/or guitar had problems or was not turned on. It's fixed relatively quickly.
- A few of the breaks have conversations from the band with the crowd.
- Zero editing was done on this recording. Might be a bit low but just turn it up. Problem solved.
- Lots of issues...
- 1. Doors were not open on time.
- 2. Too many opening bands. THREE opening bands? About halfway through the second band people were already getting anxious. A cover of Iron Maiden's The Number of the Beast was the only thing that saved them.
- 3. For some reason it was a 21+ show. It really didn't need to be. (See #4) Remove one or two opening bands, make it all ages, and you'll probably sell more tickets.
- 4. Very few people. At most about 50 people were there. During Battery there was less than half of that.
- 5. The balcony was closed. I guess they have to sell a certain amount of tickets before it's open but a good number of people clearly wanted to go up there.
- 6. No stage lights far too many times. If it was for an "effect" it was annoying.
- 7. Guitar solos could not be heard clearly. Every solo sounded like a high-pitched whine. Somehow this recording sounds 100 times better than what we heard.
- 8. Staff obsessively throwing away empty bottles. Glass hitting glass is not an instrument that needed to be added.
- 9. The drunk guy to my right during The Four Horsemen.
"Sabbath bloody sabbath
Nothing more to do
Living just for dying
Dying just for you"
- It's going to take a band I really, really, really, want to see for me to go back there.
- Anyways, enjoy the recording! It's probably better than actually being there!
