08/25/2019 Slipknot, Volbeat (Darien, NY @ Darien Lake Performing Arts Center)

My ticket was fairly close up, not pit but close to it, however I ended up drifting back a couple rows and off to the far left to hang with Kiersten, Pete, and their friend Nick. Had a much better time this way! Especially considering I missed Gojira and Behemoth, and got there in time for Volbeat, whom I’m still not terribly high on. I wasn’t that impressed when I saw them open for Metallica a decade prior, and while I find the radio singles okay, I didn’t think they were all that great this time either. They aren’t bad, they sounded fine, they just don’t do anything for me. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Now, Slipknot on the other hand, have put on a great show every time I’ve seen them. This was my 5th ‘Knot show, and was just as great as the previous four. They came out of the gate on fire, starting with People = Shit, (sic), and they’re *still* playing Get This! Of course, there’s also *still* a good portion of the crowd that doesn’t – a lot of bewildered looks while the rest of us are screaming “SUCK THESE NUTS” at the top of our lungs haha. The new songs sounded great (Unsainted and Solway Firth), I’ve always loved The Heretic Anthem, Prothestics was cool to hear again, and the new All Out Life was a crowd pleaser as well. Can’t go out any harder than they did with an encore of Spit It Out (complete with Jumpdafuckup as always!) and the rightful grand finale of Surfacing. We had a blast, the band sounded awesome, Corey sounded great, can’t ask for more!
