They'll be at a small club in Philly in a few weeks. May pick up tickets for that one.

Caught Iron Maiden last night. They may be 5 90-year old dudes explicitly touring to advertise their mobile game, but they still sound super good!

Secondarily, the opening band The Raven Age was a rancid pile of puke, but sounded like some melodic/harmonic/symphonic horseshit you goobers in this thread would love.

The Raven Age is metalcore.

Sure they had horrible blast beats, but they also had nasally emo vocals! Is that really some kinda core? They sounded dangerously close to (not-so) nu-metal, like England's third best late-era-Korn cover band.

If you dropped every single instrument (and the vocals) down a few octaves that would probably appeal to my crappy tastes. I should probably play symphonic metal videos at half speed!

Could I interest you in some melodic Finnish death metal from Amorphis, who use Scandinavian lore as themes?

Allllllmost, but still too clean and too fast for me during the verse. I did like the acoustic guitar breakdown bit, almost flamenco, which was surprising!

Next week I'm going to see olde 80s and 90s crusties the Melvins & Redd Kross. The Melvins (speaking of half-speed) are probably my favorite live band that I've seen a dozen+ times over the decades, and they still sound really good and are purposely playing at a small 300-person venue, so I'm super stoked about that.

Also going to Torche on Friday, who are one of the rare modern/relevant bands my crusty ass follows. They allllllllllmost approach some melodic moments on occasion:

Love all three, part of my holy quartet with Lacuna Coil. Was so happy when Floor became the lead singer for Nightwish, was great with After Forever.

I like what I have heard from Lacuna Coil, I just keep forgetting to go back to them for some reason (but I don't know why). These three have been my holy trinity of symphonic metal so far.

Have you gotten to see any of the 4 live? Got to see Nightwish in March of 2018 and Within Temptation in March of 2019. I saw the last show Epica has scheduled is in 2020 in New York, which I hope is the sign that a US tour will be kicked off with that show.

Nightwish was amazing. Within Temptation was very good but I fell victim of the group that opened for them, In Flames. In Flames was so high energy that I realized partway into the Within Temptation set that I was still drained and was still sitting down (we had balcony seats in the venue so we could easily see from being seated it just felt weird being seated).

Seen all of them live, probably the same tours for Nightwish and Within Temptation. A fan of In Flames too so that was a great concert. Seen Lacuna Coil live more than any other band, 5 or 6 times.

I came across a Squid song I really liked, and it took me weeks to remember that you were where I had heard of them. Thanks for putting them on my radar!

This was good stuff. I was right on top of Buzz's monitor, about 12 inches from the mic. Buzz's grandparents were there, and his grandad must be 90+ and parked his walker behind Buzz's stack....you can see just a corner of it, peaking out behind the wall on the left in this vid:
