    Most Metal Moment 2019

    by Godflesh » Tue Feb 05, 2019 11:53 pm

    Time for a new edition of this thread...

    Every year, there's a moment when chills come down my spine, I can feel Vulcan's smile, and I think: "now THIS is METAL".
    It's a unique moment that only happens once per year.
    This year for me it was during the Roots show, when at the last breakdown of “Roots, bloody roots” everybody I could see headbanged in unison.

    What was yours?

    Quoth the Raven. I've posted here and elsewhere about how meh I felt about the new Eluveitie, but when she screamed "hear my wings caressing the wind! Hear my CRY!" I think half the pool deck had chills. Holy shit.

    Close second was everyone on the pool deck headbanging during the And Plague Flowers the Kaleidoscope breakdown. Always so very good.

    Maybe not the most metal, but Arkona playing in the wind and rain on the pool deck was possibly the peak of their intended aesthetic.

    For me it was getting into the moshpit during Blood Red Throne's set at the ice rink. I rarely do moshpits nowadays but these guys woke up the demon inside me :deathhorns:

    Probably the pit during the Fleshgod Apocalypse's Ice Rink show. Like cegr80, I don't do pits much anymore, but that one was amazeballs.

    The start of "Roots Bloody Roots" would be a close second.

    I lost one of my brand new earplugs during this set. I think I was putting it on/removing it when a crowdsurfer kicked me. Tried looking for it after the show but no dice

    Yep. HATE it when that happens. I always try to carry a spare or two in my pockets, just in case.
    THIS year I brought a bag of earplugs...and only ended up using four. :twisted:

    Reason 629 why crowdsurfers suck ass.

    Yes, all of them.

    I like the intent of this thread but I want more out of it so I'm hijacking and just throwing out some generally awesome things:

    Eluveitie's set on the pool deck was straight out of a movie. Surreal.
    Bodyfarm. Those guys nailed it. Legit metal bassist should be featured even more.
    Persefone's singer spent half his time in the crowd/pit.
    Fleshgod delivering on the last set.
