Tool, Mastodon - Introvert&Explosive
Opening band Mastodon was actually the reason I was at this show, since they released Blood Mountain, which is my album of the year. They played more gentile tracks than usual, but because their sound was incredibly bombastic it still sounded like all songs were heavy as fuck. Most songs came from the new album, but since the balance of the sound was shifter towards the low tones the melodies got a bit lost in all the noise. Nevertheless they played a monstrous show that got me headbanging where it was necessary. The melodic vocals proved to work excellent live, and after their 45 minutes of groundbreaking music I was very satisfied. Too bad for them that Tool absolutely blew them away afterwards, and that’s a lot coming from me! (DemonDust)

I don't especially like 'm either, but it sounds like I really have to visit a concert of them once!
Btw, I liked the old metalrage sig at the photos A LOT more than this new the-fast-and-the-furious-stylish look

have you seen a different show?
they kicked off with "stinkfist" and they didn't played "wings for mary" at all.
i liked it, though musically it wasn't as good as their show in amsterdam, but that is because of the sound i think. the sound in amsterdam was soooo much better than in rotterdam.
but the visual effects and the lasers really made my day in rotterdam. the visuals were really improved since the last time and the lasers were amazing.
and i didn't liked mastodon. but that's because of the vocals. can't stand them.

you're right, that's probably because my mp3-player has an attitude of changing tracknames. Woops!

the right setlist:
Forty Six & 2
Lost Keys (Blame Hoffman)

Mastodon was good, and the new songs sounded very tight being played live, but unfortunately the sound was awefull because of the horrible acoustics of the venue, a pity. The crowd also didn't like Mastodon; i didn't saw a single banging head, even not DemonDust's :p . Such a shame; Mastodon deserves better, imo.
I was blown away by Tool as well. Though, it wasn't there best show, musically seen: ofcourse the overall sound wasn't good (though absolutely astounishing for a that venue!!!), but Maynard's voice wasn't as beatutiful as it could be, because of the gasmask. Also, the bass player made a couple of minor mistakes, but that didn't bother me at all.
Visually it blowed me away completely, the most beautiful concert i've ever been to; the lasers, the animations, the lights...wow.
This was a gig to be remembered for a long time, imo

|you weren't paying attention then, i saw a couple of banging heads, and mine was one of them!|

|an me too, although not that often. My god, Sleeping Giant is probably the best metal song in 2006.|

|they can play that track at my funeral! But I prefer Capillarian Crest way more!|
