PiercingMetal Thoughts: Oh man is this going to be a good one or what. I recently saw Obituary live during the Decibel Music Tour and they were supremely kick ass. Now as far as Exodus is concerned, the band was doing great with Rob Dukes at the microphone but seems to have not only upped their game with the return of Zetro but also returned to a style that their original fans were ravenous about. I’m excited about this one, but September is a long time away on my personal concert attending calendar and if my schedule is clear (which I hope that it is) I’m not going to miss this show when it comes to Brooklyn. I don’t get to the MHOW all that much for events so it will be a nice chance of pace for me. What about you readers? Is this a tour that you are already slavering for? Let me know your thoughts down in the comments section below.
