Slayer and Lamb of God in Nashville, Tennessee on August 30, 2017.
Slayer and Lamb of God at Nashville’s Municipal Auditorium on August 30th, 2017.
Slayer has been synonymous with thrash metal for most of us that grew up with this music. It’s a genre that has been played by many bands throughout the years, but nothing beats hearing one of the original godfathers of American thrash metal. The years have not slowed these musicians down one bit! I love watching this band! The show, light, pyrotechnics, displays are great. It’s hard to picture them ever retiring, but if the talk is true, we’re about to lose one of the most iconic thrash metal bands of our times. If you are one of the few that has not seen Slayer live. See them now, while you can!
Having seen Lamb of God three times previously, I expected this to be a good show and they certainly did not disappoint! Even though they have played in front of crowds that number in the tens of thousands, they still put every bit of the same energy into a show with a fraction of the people.
If you’re familiar with LoG, you know that, as always, you can expect super tight, yet very complex riffs. If you’re not familiar with the music of LoG, these men are incredible musicians. Performances are always solid and full of energy. You can’t watch this show and not be affected by the energy. As a bass player, I am mesmerized by John Campbell’s hands when he plays, especially when playing some of my favorites such as, “Walk With Me in Hell” and “Now You’ve Got Something To Die For.” This is a show to see over and over again.
