• Best Bands & Worst Bands I Saw This Year

    Gen 3 2010, 14:50


    In Flames- Played a great mix of both old & new, & headlined the bet overall concert i went to all year.

    Streetlight Manifesto (the 2nd time)- Streetlight put on an amazing final show (before hiatus), and really got the crowd pumped up.

    The Devil Wears Prada- Probably my favorite overall set at Warped this past year, TDWP didn't disappoint.

    Children of Bodom- Awesome set, and Alexi almost killed some moron who spit on his guitar.

    FACT- One of the biggest surprises, I don't really listen to them that much, but they are definitely one of the best post-hardcore bands live.

    Between the Buried & Me- Possibly the most intense set i've seen live, BTBAM delivered with the progressive brutality theyre known for.

    All That Remains- Another incredibly intense performance, ATR performed all the songs such as Not Alone, Six, This Calling, Focus Shall Not Fail, and Two Weeks that put them near the top of the metalcore chain.

    Senses Fail- SF put on a great show for the hometown fans, and the overall concert experience was outstanding.

    Anti-Flag- Even though I can't stand their studio recordings, Anti-Flag played outstanding at Warped.

    The Black Dahlia Murder- TBDM put on an frenetic & brutal set before Bodom started.

    Honorable Mention: Shadows Fall, A Skylit Drive, Dance Gavin Dance, Chevelle, Skeletonwitch, The Faceless, The Mighty Mighty Bosstones

    The Worst:

    Otep: Absolutely horrendous. The numerous bizarre gimmicks they attempted to pull off all failed, and they soured an otherwise good Shadows Fall/ 5FDP concert.

    Taking Dawn: Bland attempt at power metal

    Streetlight Manifesto: Their performance at Warped was probably the worst of the day, but they definitely redeemed theirselves a few months later at Starland.

    My Arcadia- very mediocre, but theyre local, so they can get better over time.

    Burn Halo- James Hart shouldve sticked with Eighteen Visions. BH was typical boring radio rock, that brought nothing original to the table.
