PiercingMetal Thoughts: Despite the amount of success that this band has found with this album, they were never one of my bands and that means I never got around to seeing them in concert. I did like a few songs but have to admit that I only really know the two hits from this now milestone release in their catalog. I have to chuckle when I realize that the largest exposure that I even had to these songs was from the cover bands that my friends were in. These numbers were mainstays in many a setlist for that group of musicians back during the albums original heyday. That being said I wouldn’t mind catching their regional show when it happens so I can cross them off the musical bucket list. I’m surprised we didn’t get an idea of who the direct support will be but I guess that announcement will come later. What do you readers think about this one? Is it something that you will go to? Chime in down below in the comments.
