Saw them at donnington in 04, shame the almost caused a riot by not telling us why they were delayed for over an hour..

But seeing Dave Lombardo and Joey Jordison playing with the other 2 members of 'tallica (and that fat dredded bassist) was an ok end to the fest...
Shame they were out played by numerous bands over the weekend, including Pennywise.
