Evein' all! I went to see the 'corpse last night with a bunch of mates at the Bradford Rio (smallish pub like venue about 2.5 hours drive from my hovel) and although I'm not a huge Corpse or Death Metal fan I had a great time! The venue itself wasnt all that big which was agreat thing as the whole gig became more 'personal' - at the end of every song myself, my mates and a few crowd members, possibly fellow bass players, continually shouted 'BASS SOLO!!'. Although we never got a full blown one, we did get a few short licks between songs as well as the aknoledgment of the singer spointing and shouting at us 'He'll solo in a minute..if we've time!'. The main thing that struck me about the band was how tight the were (as someone else mentioned on here some time back), especially when taking into account the fact they were constantly windmlling (like headbanging but whirling of hair), headbanging, jumping around and not to mention being knocked aside by the odd misdirected stage diver (incidentally the band heavily encouraged stage diving/crowd members going on stage). Overall it was an excellent gig! The supporting bands were'nt to my taste but the corpse really polished off the night for me! As far as live bands go, they're way up there with Maiden! I would've posted this review last night but I returned home in the early ours with an aura of death surorunding me, not to mention some of the juiciest armpits I've encountered to boot Band Ratings: Gore: 6/10 - Pretty technical (including a death metal tetris) but not really my thing. Kataklym: 6/10 - Again a 6 as tehy didnt really appeal to me. The drummer had some impressive licks and solos (between technical difficulties) Cannabal Corpse: 9.5/10 - If only the isnger (George) had of let Alex (bass) do a bass solo! If only! Over and out PS here's some pics: Ticket no' 1! WOW!
