Daath To Keep Their Guard Up At Ozzfest

Daath apparently experienced a lot of violence on their winter tour with Goatwhore, the Acacia Strain and Job for a Cowboy and are wary looking ahead to Ozzfest. Here are some excerpts from an MTV article:

"I don't like getting into fights — it's not what I'm into," he said. "But that last tour was so crazy, as far as violence goes, I just figure we've got to be ready. ... After this last tour ... I mean, there were fights every single night. One night, there were nine fights — nine f---ing bloody fights."

During one gig, Levi said, an audience member tried to attack frontman Sean Farber after he drenched the crowd with water.

"I guess some dude didn't like it, and he told us to stop — in the middle of a song, mind you," the guitarist recalled. "First of all, we're not going to stop. Secondly, how do you expect a band to hear that? So he charged the stage and spit in Sean's face. Sean saw him rushing towards the stage and hit him in the face with his microphone. After the show, the dude jumped our merch guy because he thought it was Sean. So let's just say I'm going to be ready next time."

The article also shares this interesting bit of background on the band that I certainly did not know:

Daath — which translates to "knowledge" in Hebrew — released their Roadrunner Records debut, The Hinderers, March 20. The Atlanta act's material is heavily influenced by Da'at and Kabbalah, although the band does not identify a direct religious affiliation in its music. Daath explore esoteric themes associated with the Qabalistic Tree of Life and Death — a mystical-belief system that describes imbalances in areas of the brain — and use it as a framework for psychological exploration, Levi said.

It's retarded that they have to keep their guards up, they shouldn't have to. It's all supposed to be about the music. a$$holes like these just make it not as enjoyable at shows. Unless the band totally blows ass. lol And Daath doesn't suck, but it's also a matter of opinion.

I think Daath is actually a pretty good band. When some guy in the crowd is being an ass, they should be able to kick him out of the fvckin' place.

Daath aren't doing anything I havent heard before but they're the strongest thing to come from RR since Opeth hopped on board. Very polished but not over the top, decent stuff for the genre.

Who gets that p***ed because they got a little bit of water on them? He deserved a worse beating than what he got.
