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.
