Finally! After being shut out every other time Soulfly came around, I finally got to see Max and the boys, and the wait was worth it! But we had three other bands to wait through first. Mower was from San Diego, and they were a weird mix of hardcore, punk, and sorta metal… but they sucked. You know we’ve sunk to a new low when ya gotta start covering ICP… Stemm was next, the boys from Niagara Falls, and they were alright, but ehhh… The North Side Kings were sorta hardcore, but not extreme. Some of the songs were actually kinda funny, as in the one song was about “Eating Food With Your Friends”… and these guys were rather large individuals hehe. Then it was time for Soulfly… I acutally ended up 3 deep from the front, dead center! They opened with Downstroy, and the place just went nuts… and stayed that way for pretty much the whole show… I’ll be damned if I can remember the order, but they also played Jumpdafuckup/Bring It, Fire (which had a wicked total-drum solo at the end, with all the soulfly guys, plus the drummer and bassist from the North Side Kings), Seek’n’Strike, Last of the Mohicans, Call To Arms (with the singer from North Side Kings), Brasil, and a couple Sepultura songs! Refuse/Resist, Arise, Dead Embryonic Cells, and Roots Bloody Roots. There may have been another one but I cant remember. They ended the main set with Back To The Primitive, and everyone was literally screaming for more… so back out they came, launching into No (“No more muthafuckin Hootie and the Blowfish!!”) and closing the night out with an incredible take on Eye For An Eye. I think I lost 20 pounds just sweating at this show… and it was worth it! The wait was long, and the rewards were great, what a show.
