16 Mar 2009, 19:17 by MinaseTakiTras pasar las obligadas siete horas de autobús y tomar un taxi que me salió bastante más barato de lo que yo pensaba, llegué por fin a las puertas de la famosa cubierta de Leganés. No me imaginaba que hubiera tantas personas, metaleros por doquier. Me uní a ellos, y tras muchos gritos a los guardias por tardones, abrieron las puertas y la gente comenzó a entrar. Cabe destacar que los individuos encargados de registrarnos eran unos completos mantas. Abrí la mochila un poco, les dije que tan sólo llevaba la chaqueta, el móvil y unos libros y los muy ilusos me creyeron y me dejaron avanzar sin más dilación. ¿Y si yo hubiese llevado una navaja en el bolsillo de la chaqueta o en el fondo de la mochila? Qué seguridad tan bien preparada y eficaz, eh. (Sarcasmo incluído.)
En fin, en cuanto vi el escenario con el fondo de The Formation Of Damnation, no pude menos de gritar y correr como un loco. TESTAMENT. En directo, dentro de una hora, que se me hizo eterna, dicho sea de paso. Pero al fin comenzó a sonar el For The Glory Of. …

What an awesome gig! Megadeth was my favourite overall because I know the songs/lyrics inside out, but there's no doubt that Priest were technically the best and put on an amazing show! Testament I was looking forward to the most, and was a little let down by average sound clarity on the vocals but still really enjoyed them.

25 Aug 2008, 23:20 by sarsippius164On Friday August 22nd I went with my brother James and one of his friends, Luis, to see the Metal Masters Tour. That was a great show, I had a lot of fun watching all four bands prove that they may be old, but still great!
Once the security at the Superpages center started allowing people in, we found a great place on the grass to watch the show. One event staffer said that everybody that was on the grass needed to go find a seat. How awesome is that?! We paid for lawn/general admission, and wound up getting seats! It was like being upgraded on an airline.
First off was Testament. They came out on time! Thats the first time I've ever seen that happen! Right at 5:30 they came out and started playing Over the Wall. Then they played three songs from their new album. Then followed that up with Practice What You Preach! That has always been such an awesome song to me. The old thrash stuff was great. If there was room, there would have been a mosh pit I'm sure. …
18 Aug 2008, 04:07 by sablespecterSat 16 Aug – Judas Priest, Motörhead, Testament, Heaven and Hell
Last night's show was really like two shows in one. A lot of multi-artist package tours end up being a whole bunch of opening acts with abbreviated set lists and limited stage sets followed by one big headliner show. The Metal Masters Tour is really two openers and two headliners though, and it was worth getting home after 2AM to see it.
Testament sounded really tight, which was especially good because this was the first time I have seen them live. I'm very happy to see four of the five original members of the band plus Paul Bostaph on drums working together again. Since Chuck Billy has beat his cancer, he's brought the classic fire back to his delivery, and The Formation Of Damnation is a very rich album. The live delivery backs it up, and it was very cool to see Alex Skolnick play live. If you're a Pittsburgh fan of The Alex Skolnick Trio, Alex will be back in town with them in just a couple of weeks (Sep 4).
22 May 2006, 15:40 by davidloefflerFinally got round to something I've been meaning to try for quite a while.
I have quite a big collection of music on my computer (2132 tracks, organised into 279 albums by 169 artists). I tend to like to listen to whole albums; I listen to a lot of prog metal bands who are prone to multi-part songs, and this whole "99-cents-a-track" thing annoys me. (Led Zeppelin, for example, insisted that their albums were indivisible works of art, and were very annoyed when their record company released Whole Lotta Love as a single without their consent). But I have so many albums in my collection that I tend to just forget about some of them, so I have pick one out by hand from the collection I end up listening to one of the same five albums; also, I like to have music on in the background while I work, jukebox-style, without having to do anything to keep it going.
So my ideal music player would have a mode where it would pick an album at random, play it in its entirety, then pick another random album and play that, and so on. …
