A few thoughts after yesterday’s Exodus concert.

    • London Music Hall’s sound is horrible. I don’t know whether it’s a sound engineer’s fault or sound so awful because of the building itself, but it was impossible to make out a single note in solos. Only low freq could be heard and it’s even a bit funny because when we came come we realized that on a phone’s video solos can be heard (because phones typically suck at recording low-freq sounds). I’m complaining because solos is one of the most important parts of Exodus’ songs.
    • In addition to its quality the sound yesterday was loud. I mean, really loud. I’m still half-deaf.
    • There were a lot of people and they came already warmed up, so when Powertrip started playing it was mosh, blood and headbanging everywhere.
    • Powertrip is a great band. Their vocalist looks like a drug addict =)
    • Beer is very expensive, about $11 per 24 oz. (still haven’t checked out what this quantity means)
    • Exodus live should’ve been much better than Exodus on records and I’m sure they would have proved my theory if sound had been better. Otherwise we could enjoy only drummer’s skills and Zetro’s vocals.



The new album of “The Haunted” is inevitably approaching and they have already released 3 or 4 music videos. I have some fears that the album will be meh, but we’ll see soon.

And liked this song, don’t know why. Was listening today to it for an hour, maybe. Shame.

Marty Friedman has released his new album today, and I decided to read up on his career on Wikipedia to celebrate such a significant event. All I knew about Marty is that he played in Megadeth and now resides in Japan. Turned out that our world is a very small place because also he recorded the guitar track for the song “Moon Pride”, which is the opening of the Sailor Moon Crystal!

So, here come a couple of songs =)

Japanese Marty. He speaks Japanese great, by the way (hm, I shouldn’t be so surprised, probably, he’s lived there for, how many, 14 years?)

Moon Puraidu

Good old Megadeth days (his most famous solo)
