They deserve there own thread goddammit!

Anyone in to them? I have listened to nothing but for about a month! If you can get past his voice then they are stunningly good. Discuss :P

Saw them supporting Slayer at Brixton.  They were good but of the support bands Lamb of God stole the show.

What do recommend as a starter for them?

Was that the Unholy Alliance tour then :P (was gutted I could;nt make that :(

Not really sure where to start as I am fairly new myself but give the 'Follow the Reaper' album a go ;D

I only have Hatebreeder and probably don't play it as often as I should.

Only buy their stuff if you can get it cheap. I wouldn't say they were crap, but they are certainly intensely overrated! Very middle of the road... Sorry!

Not to gloat but i saw it twice at the NEC where we got a longer Slayer set  :) but it was very cold and lacked atmosphere as the place was 2/3 empty and the 2nd night at Brixton which was great.

By the way Gebs may well have a little treat for us all from Glasgow if we ask him nicely  ;)

I wouldn't say that Simon, I think they are let down by his voice (or lack of) but the musicianship (Alexis guitar playing in particular) makes them certainly alot better than middle of the road. But hey, each to there own :D


Patrick I am very jealous of you mate, I was planning to go to the NEC gig but the date passed without me noticing! And if you can get hold of any boots from Gebs I would happily take part in a weed ;D ;)

You could be right there Martin. The vocals are a bad point and are a definite turn off for me, but no complaints about the guitar really...
