    Fri 25 Jun – Graspop Metal Meeting 2010

    Graspop 2010

    This year marked the 15th anniversary of Graspop Metal Meeting, a festival of metal, rock and hardcore. For this particular occasion, the organization had promised to give ticketholders a run for their money by bringing out some amazing (and not so amazing) bands.

    Day 1
    On the first day of the festival, I awoke after a night of pretty heavy drinking wherein I met some very interesting people from all over the world. I headed over to the metal dome to check out the opening band for the festival Oceans of Sadness, an avant-garde metal band from Belgium. I had pretty high expectations as what I’d heard from their latest album was quite original. Unfortunately, this first band did not deliver at all, in my opinion. The bass player was nothing short of bad, the drummer was rather sloppy and I couldn’t hear the guitars in the mix, the only member that really stood out was the singer who pulled off some very powerful shrieks. The band was not tight and felt as though they were playing independently as opposed to playing as a band.

    After this, I walked over to Marquee I to watch Ghost Brigade, a band whose newest album, [album]Isolation Songs[/album] had blown me away. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the band was very tight live with all the members clearly demonstrating a great level of communication. The singer had a very powerful voice, the guitarists played very intricate sections and the drummer was very precise and played some interesting patterns. I could only notice one mistake from the drummer, aside from that, the music, the lighting and the stage presence was completely flawless.

    I then ran over to the Metal Dome to watch Bleeding Through, a band that I’ve been into for a while now. By the time I got there, the metal dome was already packed and I had to settle for a spot relatively far away from the stage. From what I could tell, the band was pretty good with the frontman singing decent clean vocals, however, the overall sound was pretty bad with the double pedal eating at the guitars throughout most of the songs.

    I then went over to the mainstage to watch Billy Talent, a punk rock band from Canada. I am not very familiar with the band’s music and did not really know what to expect from them. It turns out that the band is actually a very strong live act fronted by a singer with a voice unlike many I’ve heard before. They played their set without any noticeable mistakes and were able to entertain a crowd mainly comprised of metalheads which, for a punk rock band, is nothing short of amazing.

    After Billy Talent was Anvil in the Marquee II. I had watched Anvil’s documentary and was looking forward to seeing what the band had to offer live. I watched two songs and had to leave; I have rarely seen such a sloppy live band, the drummer couldn’t hold a rhythm straight, the guitarist was far from precise and the band’s stage presence was practically inexistent. I now understand why they never made it big.

    Upon leaving Anvil early, I decided to go to Marquee I to get a good spot for Anathema. This was by far my favourite show of the first day. The singer was absolutely flawless, the guitarists were precise, the drumming was clever, the lighting was atmospheric as ever and the band was dressed very formally. They were the only band I saw from the three days who were able to play an encore in a Marquee. My only regret is that they only had a 40 minute set to play.

    After this, I took a break to go meet a couple of my friends who had just arrived on the festival grounds. On our way to the tent, I could hear Slayer and as far as I could tell, it sounded like people were having a blast.

    I then went to watchStone Temple Pilots. I had heard a lot of good things about STP and was looking forward to the show. The band was pretty good, Scott Weiland sang well and the guitarist pulled off some nice solos but the band is still definitely not my style of music. As a result, I probably didn’t enjoy it quite as much as other people in the audience.

    After this, I took a well-deserved break to go have some food and went to sit down near the mainstage in anticipation of Motörhead. I had heard a lot of praise of Motörhead’s live shows and of Lemmy Kilmeister’s very charismatic personality. I was completely blown away by this show, Lemmy may be getting old but his voice is still intact, the band's guitarist showcased some of the better solos that I saw throughout the festival and midway through the set, the drummer stole the show with an amazing solo. The sound was very clear and the lighting was also very well done which all made for an insane set.

    I then went to see My Dying Bride, a band that has always intrigued me. Their live sound was very good, the band played their songs well, however, live doom metal is much too boring and drags on too much for my taste. I decided to leave after a couple of songs to get a good spot for the headlining band of the first day: Aerosmith.

    Aerosmith was, in my opinion, a great choice of headlining band. Steven Tyler’s voice has lost some of its power and the songs have aged a little but the energy of the band and their showmanship still made this last concert one hell of a show. Once again, the lighting and sound were top-notch which only helped to make this concert all the better.

    Day 2
    The next day, I began with Sylosis, a British metalcore band in the Marquee II. I was pleasantly surprised by the young band’s live performance. The frontman was able to play some very technical riffs while singing all of his sections flawlessly and also played some very fast and technical solos. They got a pretty good reaction from the crowd and were able to start some nice circle pits.

    I then moved over to the mainstage to grab some lunch and watch Sabatonfrom a distance. From what I could see, the band was very tight and had got a great response from the audience, a lot of whom wore Sabaton t-shirts.

    Marquee II was my next destination, I went there to watch Death By Stereo, a hardcore band from California. This was easily one of the best shows of the day. The gig started off pretty quietly with an audience who quite clearly wasn’t familiar with the band’s songs. However, as the band played, the lead singer’s energy rubbed off on the audience whose energy levels kept rising on and on. There came a point in the show when the singer actually jumped off the stage and went into the crowd to start moshing with all of us. At this point, the audience went apeshit and the rest of the show was just pure energy and fun.

    I then returned to the mainstage to watch Bullet for My Valentine, who used to be my favourite band back in 2005. Their performance wasn’t bad, however, I was disappointed to see that the Matt Tuck stopped doing screams altogether, leaving it all to the bass player. That being said, Matt Tuck’s vocals as well his guitar playing were pretty spot on throughout the gig. The one aspect of the show that left a bitter taste in my mouth was the drummer’s playing. I was wearing earplugs and therefore could hear his double pedal clearly. There is a point in the chorus of “Tears Don’t Fall” where the double pedal doubles in speed for a single bar; the drummer consistently failed to hit that part precisely during the whole song.

    Then came Carcass’ turn on the mainstage. Being with two friends who are really into death metal, they had really hyped up the band and given me high expectations. These expectations were definitely met thanks to the guitarists’ very tight playing, the drummer’s precision and the power of Jeff Walker’s vocals. Even though I’m not a huge fan of death metal, I really loved this show.

    After this heavier show, I stuck around to wait for Slash on the mainstage. Truth be told, I was just as excited to see Slash as I was to see Myles Kennedy of Alter Bridge who is easily one of my favourite rock vocalists. Both parties delivered exactly what I’d expected playing songs from Slash’s solo album as well as some classic Guns N’ Roses songs. The most pleasing surprise of the show was when they played “Rise Today”, a song from Alter Bridge’s latest album. Being a huge Alter Bridge fan, that song made me a happy camper.

    I then headed over to watch 5 or 6 songs by Sick of It All on Marquee II. For the time I was there the band was hugely energetic with the singer bouncing all over the stage and the guitarist pulling off karate moves all throughout the set. The audience was completely digging the material and shit went wild when they got to the end of “Take The Night Off”. I left a little early to get a decent spot for Eluveitie.

    Eluveitie was extremely impressive, they had a very good, clear sound, their playing was precise, the clean vocals were spot on and the flutes came out well in the overall mix. I was glad to hear them play a lot of songs from their newest album which I was most familiar with. I left halfway through the set to go get a good spot for the headlining band of the day; Soulfly.

    It has been three days since I saw Soulfly play, and at this point, I’m still questioning Graspop’s decision to choose them as the headlining band. Max Cavalera’s vocals were downright terrible and he clearly didn’t have the stamina to sing for long (try getting the audience to sing every single chorus of every single song). The drummer’s playing was not very tight and he very often slowed down and accelerated. What’s more is that I saw them last year at Graspop and this show was almost a carbon copy of last year’s (the percussion section of the set, getting his son to come and sing onstage etc.). You’d expect that being chosen as headlining band, they would’ve pulled a trick or too, but no. Around one hour and fifteen minutes into the set, I got tired of listen to Max screaming big words like “blood”, “war”, “sacrifice” and “prophecy” over and over and left to get some well-deserved rest. Definitely not a good way to end an otherwise flawless day of music.

    Day 3
    The third day then came around beginning with my all-time favourite band Between the Buried and Me. I got to the metal dome an hour early just to get a good spot. I am probably biased writing this, but this is my second time seeing them and once again they played an absolutely amazing set. Tommy Rogers’ vocals were completely spot-on, both screaming and singing, Blake Richardson once again provided a very strong foundation for the band’s sound and Paul Waggoner’s solos were all played with great dynamics and without any mistakes that I could hear. They got a very strong reaction from the audience who, for the most part, seemed to have never heard of the band.

    I then ran with my friends to Marquee II to get a good spot for Job for a Cowboy. I was very impressed with John Rice’s drumming, however because the overall sound mix wasn’t very good, his double pedal was pretty much all I could hear. Overall the band was still very good and had a lot of energy that carried through to the audience.

    I then took a break and went to Marquee I to get a good spot for Katatonia. Seeing as I’m a big fan of the band’s music and that it was their first participation in Graspop, I was expecting great things from this gig. Unfortunately, the band did not live up to these at all, the singer was very very pitchy compared to what he was like on the album and the guitarist who was singing harmonies was not doing anything to help either. The only musician that really stood out was the drummer whose work I had already been impressed by on the studio albums. I decided to leave early and get in early for The Faceless.

    I’ve been a big fan of The Faceless for quite a while now and was really anticipating this show. My first reaction upon seeing them was “holy shit these guys are young”. The technicality of the band’s music would not make one think that its musicians are somewhere between 20 and 25 years of age. My second reaction was that I couldn’t believe that they were actually pulling off their songs live flawlessly, there were only a couple of mistakes here and there but they weren’t anything big and nothing unexpected for such a technical band. Between The Buried And Me’s Dan Briggs was watching the band from backstage and quite obviously was impressed, which says something.

    After The Faceless it was time for another run to Marquee II in order to get upfront for As I Lay Dying. I used to be a huge fan of the band a couple of years ago and so was looking forward to seeing them. I have no doubt that the band are very proficient live, unfortunately the set was just WAY too loud killing out most of the guitar riffs and replacing them with Jordan Mancino’s deadly double pedal assault. It was unfortunate that this should happen to a band that a lot of people came to see, but hey, things like that happen.

    I then chilled around listening to 36 Crazyfists’s set from a distance while waiting for A Day to Remember to come on. I went to the stage early as I’d seen a lot of ADTR shirts throughout the day and knew there would be a lot of people there. I was still really surprised to see the amount of people that actually turned up at that show even though we were in a metal festival. The set was amazing, the entire audience was participating, jumping around, moshing, singing like there was no tomorrow. In certain parts of the songs, I couldn’t even tell you if Jeremy McKinnon was singing well because the crowd was singing so loud. It was truly a magical set where everyone was united under the same tent because of their love for the same band.

    I then took a break watching Killswitch Engage’s set from a distance on the mainstage. From what I could tell, they were pretty good, although it sounded like Howard Jones had been in better shape. After this necessary break, I walked over to Marquee II to see Unearth, one of the first metal bands I’ve ever listened to. I hadn’t listened to their stuff in over three years, but as soon as they played songs from “The Oncoming Storm”, it all came back to me. They had amazing energy and Buz McGrath played some insane solos while still going wild onstage. They managed to get the crowd (including me) pretty wild which is nothing short of a feat on the evening of the third day of a metal festival.

    After this, it was time to check out Amon Amarth under the Marquee I. I didn’t stay too long but from what I saw, the band had a great sound, were very together and quite obviously had a strong following of fans who knew all the lyrics (I had one growling behind me the whole time).

    I left Amon Amarth early to get a decent spot for the final headlining band of the festival: Kiss. I was expecting great things from the band, but I was miles away from imagining the show they would pull off. Fireworks, flames, giant screens, elevating platforms, flying guitars, pulleys, they were all there. As you’d expect from Kiss, the music was pretty basic, but it was played flawlessly throughout the show. Paul Stanley was consistently involving the audience and it was a really fun, more chilled out show that perfectly closed this 15th edition of Graspop Metal Meeting.

  • 2009- Closing of an amazing year for music!

    19 Nov 2009, 1:42

    So 2009 is nearing its end and I think it's time that I started my end of year conclusion.

    First of all let's take a look at the albums I purchased (physically) from this year (in alphabetical order)

    1. Between the Buried and Me-The Great Misdirect (Deluxe Edition)
    2. Dashboard Confessional-Alter The Ending (Deluxe Edition)
    3. A Day to Remember-Homesick (Deluxe Edition)
    4. The Devil Wears Prada-With Roots Above and Branches Below
    5. Dream Theater-Black Clouds & Silver Linings (Deluxe Edition)
    6. Every Time I Die-New Junk Aesthetic (Deluxe Edition)
    7. Isis-Wavering Radiant (Vinyl)
    8. Moneen-The World I Want To Leave Behind
    9. Thrice-Beggars
    10. Baroness-Blue Record


    Secondly, let's go through the new, notable bands I discovered this year who released a new disc this year(in alphabetical order)

    1. As Tall As Lions-You Can't Take It With You
    Although this band is definitely not new, I only took the time to check them out this year and I was really impressed with their nice blend of experimental and indie music. Go check out Duermete.

    2. In Fear and Faith-Your World on Fire
    I started the year 2009 constantly listening to this new disc by this relatively young band. They perform some of the best post-hardcore I've come across. Amazing vocals, beautiful soaring vocal melodies, destructive breakdowns, huge metalcore riffs all combined to make one hell of a sick album. Go check out Relapse Collapse.

    3. Manchester Orchestra-Mean Everything To Nothing
    I checked this band out after the 5/5 rating they got in AP, although I wouldn't personally give them a 5/5 on their latest disc, I must admit that they are one of the best indie bands I have heard. Go check out I Can Feel a Hot One.

    4. Owl City-Ocean Eyes
    I found out about this artist in May this year, yes before everyone knew about fireflies and it hit #1 on the billboard. I was immediately captivated by the sweet and catchy hooks of Adam Young (The man behind Owl City). And although there is much controversy about Young using auto-tuned vocals and making computer-based music, I still have huge amounts of respect for this man who, in the end, is clearly a great composer and an innovator in his field. Go check out West Coast Friendship.

    5. We Came As Romans-To Plant a Seed
    I started off by listening to this band's 4 song EP in the summer of this year and really liked it so I decided to give their full length a spin. I was really really impressed by this new effort by this young band. They were named the top unsigned band of 2009 by AP and with good reason! Their new album reflects post-hardcore at its finest with amazing moments of soaring vocals, pianos and crazy riffs, a definite must! Go check out Roads That Don't End and Views That Never Cease

    6. Within the Ruins-Creature
    My jaw literally dropped after hearing this band's first full length; rarely have I ever come across a band that plays technical music at such high speeds with such precision. On record, at least, I have yet to see them live to finalize my opinion. Definitely a great record for fans of technical music in the vein of Protest The Hero and Between The Buried And Me. Go check out Arsenal

    Now let's take a look at the comebacks of the year, what I mean by this is the bands that have pulled themselves back up after a disappointing or nowhere-near-as-great previous release (in alphabetical order):

    1. Born of Osiris-A Higher Place
    Now putting this band in here, I am not saying that their previous album was bad, on the contrary, they were one of the bands that had captured my interest in 2007. However, this new release is miles above their previous album, all musicians have refined their skills and the composition is amazing, incorporating synth into progressive deathcore, something you don't see a lot of in these days' deathcore bands. The result is some of the most interesting, beautiful and brutal progressive/technical music I have heard all year! Go check out Now Arise.

    2. Converge-Axe to Fall
    Once again, putting this album in here I am not saying that I was disappointed with 2006's "No Heroes", it was an album that I really liked. But the level of this album really caught me off guard. On this effort, Converge keep the signature mathcore sound that they have carefully crafted throughout their career, however, one thing I noticed is the incorporation of much more developed song structure. Indeed, on No Heroes, many songs were under the 1:30 mark and I had difficulty remembering which songs were which etc. On this album, one will notice that most of the songs are well above the 2:30 mark and have a much more defined structure, a factor of this album which made me enjoy it all the more. Go check out Dark Horse.

    3. Dashboard Confessional-Alter The Ending
    I was a little skeptic as I was going through my first listen of the band's new album. After the album was over, I was not convinced, so I turned to the acoustic disc of the deluxe edition and gave that a spin. And holy shit was it worth it, the acoustic disc is an absolute marvel. It really feels like all the songs on this disc were written as acoustics and should have been left that way, the full band versions aren't bad but they are nowhere near the level of emotion that can be felt in the acoustic versions. Unlike 2007's The Shade Of Poison Trees, I didn't only enjoy a few tracks from the album, I loved this new album in its entirety! Welcome back Mr.Carrabba! Go check out Belle Of The Boulevard (Acoustic).

    4. The Dear Hunter-Act III: Life and Death
    I'd Thoroughly enjoyed this band's 2006 EP and for some reason I hadn't checked out their second release. Somehow I got around to listening to their third album and I am immensely glad I did. On this third disc, The Dear Hunter have taken the sound that they had begun to develop in their EP and have literally perfected it, thereby creating some of the most innovative and original music I have ever heard. It's the perfect mix of progressive rock, experimental and indie! Go check out In Cauda Venemum.

    5. Drop Dead, Gorgeous-The Hot N' Heavy
    As much as I loved 2006's In Vogue, I had been really disappointed by 2007's Worse Than A Fairy Tale. But this time around they really came back in my good graces! The new album is filled with the brutality, the screeching vocals and the melodies you have come to expect of the band. But what this new album has that others did not are hooks and a greater emphasis on vocal melodies. Almost every track has a memorable chorus with beautiful vocals and intriguing vocal harmonies. And just like all their other albums, the disc ends with a superb, long and epic track that leaves you wanting more after it's over. Go check out Two Birds, One Stone.

    6. The Number Twelve Looks Like You-Worse Than Alone
    Two words: Holy Shit. I really didn't like Nuclear. Sad. Nuclear and I really liked Mongrel but this album was just out of the planet. They took the experimentation of Mongrel cubed it and multiplied the whole thing by latin/funk music. There is brutality, complexity, jazz/latin/funk sections in practically all the song, there are clean vocals, something that was lacking on mongrel. And as a drummer, this album particularly speaks to me because the drumming on this disc is phenomenal! Some of the best drumming I've heard all year, if not in my life! Go check out Marvin's Jungle.

    7. The Used-Artwork
    Now I'm a huge The used fan, I've been listening to them since I was 13 and they're one of the bands that kind of pushed me in the direction of heavy music. I had loved their self titled, fallen in love with In Love And Death but I was pretty disappointed when Lies For The Liars came out, an album that was way overproduced. Because of that, I wasn't expecting much of this new release. But The Used delivered, the threw away all that overproduction and stripped back down to their old days using only guitars, bass, drums, piano and vocals. And the result is an amazing album that reminds of their of their older days but with more mature lyrics, more developed songwriting and greater musical ability. Undoubtedly one of the best discs I've heard all year. Go check out Kissing You Goodbye

    Now let's take a little look at the more disappointing albums of the year (in alphabetical order):

    1. Alexisonfire-Old Crows/Young Cardinals
    It wasn't a bad album at all, in fact I listened to it several times but after the jewel that was Crisis I expected more out of the band. Go check out Accept Crime.

    2. All Time Low-Nothing Personal
    All Time Low is one of my few guilty pleasures, there's just something about So Wrong, It's Right that made me fall in love with every single song on that album. Because of that, I had huge expectations for this album, but I was rather disappointed, none of the tracks have that hook factor or that young innocence in the lyrics that So Wrong, It's Right had, a lot of throwaway tracks here. Go check out Weightless.

    3. Maylene and the Sons of Disaster-III
    I had absolutely loved their previous album and so got my hands (figure of speech) on this one as soon as it came out. Three tracks in I was sold, they were all amazing, but after those three tracks the album seems to go downhill with no signs of picking back up, better luck next time! Go check out Just A Shock.

    4. A Skylit Drive-Adelphia
    Their 2007 EP She Watched The Sky was one of my albums of the year, 2008's Wires... took me a while to get into but I eventually came to love it. But this release really didn't cut it for me. Jag's vocals sound forced like he's trying to sing as high as possible as opposed to where it feels comfortable and there are no hooks or beautiful sections like their other two albums had. Go check out Those Cannons Could Sink a Ship

    Now let's take a closer look at all the other albums that were worth a mention that didn't fit any of the above categories (in alphabetical order):

    1. Between the Buried and Me-The Great Misdirect
    So my favourite band released a new album this year, which I went to buy the day it came out in stores. After the first listen I had my hmm moments where I wasn't convinced of certain things that they'd done. But for some reason I kept going back to the disc just because somehow my brain was telling me to and the more I came back to it, the more I got into it. BTBAM have really pushed their boundaries and explored new aspects of music, such as with the avant-garde intro of Fossil Genera, or the latin/jazz sounding Mirrors, the country-like ballad of Desert Of Song, the Pink Floyd-like interlude of Disease, Injury, Madness and the Asian melodies/crazy progressive sections of Swim To The Moon. And now after having sat through the entire disc 13 times (this number will keep on increasing dramatically) I have come to the conclusion that it is definitely not at the level of Colors but it is still an amazing progressive metal album and definitely one of the best of 2009. Go check out Disease, Injury, Madness.

    2. Brand New-Daisy
    So I'm a huge Brand New fan, have been for many years now, but I still haven't decided whether I like this new record or not. So far it seems that with every listen I've been getting more and more into it, I reckon a couple more focused listens and I'll be sold. Go check out Bed.

    3. The Devil Wears Prada-With Roots Above and Branches Below
    I've been listening to these guys ever since their first album and so I was really able to witness their progression through their albums. And because of this, I can safely say that this is the best and most amazing album TDWP could have written at this time. It is an absolutely flawless melodic metalcore disc and it is a huge step forward from their previous discs. One notable thing is the introduction of click tracks in their recording, this has just improved the production massively. The vocals are just as amazing as they were on Plagues, although I have yet to hear these live. The vocal melodies and harmonies have been pushed and perfected once again, for example in Sassafras where the chorus switches from a minor key to a major key for a single bar solely through the use of vocal harmony. Granted, the riffs aren't the most original aspect of TDWP's music but on this album, the songwriting, the musicianship, the brutality and the beauty have all increased extraordinarily from their previous cds. Go check out Ben Has A Kid.

    4. Every Time I Die-New Junk Aesthetic
    On this album ETID have kind of lost the 'fun' edge they had on their two previous discs and changed it to an even more brutal sound. The vocals on this album are really really good and you can hear that vocal melodies have been crafted with much more care on the disc. Another very strong point of the album are Keith Buckley's lyrics which are phenomenal in this new release especially in songs like Host Disorder. Go check out Wanderlust.

    5. Moneen-The World I Want To Leave Behind
    I had absolutely loved The Red Tree and this release only reinforced my love for this band, they deserve to become huge...seriously. This band writes some of the most heartfelt, beautiful, while at the same time somewhat complicated songs I have ever heard. Go check out Hold That Sound.

    And now it's time to declare my final top albums of the year 2009:

    10. Converge-Axe to Fall

    9. Born of Osiris-A Higher Place

    8. In Fear and Faith-Your World on Fire

    7. The Dear Hunter-Act III: Life and Death

    6. The Number Twelve Looks Like You-Worse Than Alone

    5. Dashboard Confessional-Alter The Ending

    4. Moneen-The World I Want To Leave Behind

    3. The Used-Artwork

    2. The Devil Wears Prada-With Roots Above and Branches Below

    1. Between the Buried and Me-The Great Misdirect

    Once again, the album of the year goes to Between The Buried And Me, there's just no other band that compares to them!

    Hope you enjoyed reading this, and please comment!
