PiercingMetal Thoughts: Looking over the full menu of bands on the run I must admit that I have only ever listened to the main act Origin so I’d have a lot of homework to do should I end up attending my regional show at Vitus. Part of me also wonders will Vitus be able to handle the absolute destruction that this kind of show is going to bring along with it. Sure, they had Anthrax and Megadeth but that is the Traditional Metal and these kinds of Death Metal acts bring a little bit more intensity and fans jumping out of their skins during the performance. This will be one show that a lot of people will not forget once it stomps over their heads. What do you readers think of this one? Will you be hitting one or more of the performances? Let me know down in the comments section below. Until next time.
