Due to a few circumstances this took longer then expected to put online, and I apologize to all for that, but without further delay here is the show review:

From the moment I walked inside the venue I knew this was going to be a great show, Soulfly always plays great live. The openers Twelve Tribes sounded great, and the crowd responded very well to them. I must admit I really liked the way these guys played live, great energy and some great music to go along with it.

They were finished and then Crisis took to the stage and at first with no knowledge of the band before this show when the singer Karyn Crisis came out it looked like something from a movie. With a dark silhouette of her body being the only thing I could see other then her immensely long dread-locked hair. I wasn’t sure what they would sound like and it was a good experience to see them, they are great live and their sound is great as well.

Karyn’s vocal range is amazing going from the most melodic singing to the most intense growls. They played a great set and afterwards a fan had a close encounter with another member of the band as apparently the fan tried to touch Karyn and another member of Crisis saw this and there was almost a fight until the fan apologized and everything calmed down.

Now, after about a half hour of waiting for Soulfly to take to the stage, they decided to make everyone wait an extra 15-20 minutes to come out. Which was well worth the wait in my opinion. They came out playing Prophecy and everyone was going crazy. The pit was insane and everyone was singing along with Max and really getting into it. Once again the guys in Soulfly had outdone themselves, Marc had the most energy in my opinion, he was hopping all over the stage. He seemed to be enjoying himself a lot and who wouldn’t in that situation?

They continued to bombard the fans with about twenty or so more songs. Ranging from Roots, and Refuse/Resist from the Sepultura era all the way up until the new record, which they played about eight songs off of. The fans seemed to really love it when they played Execution Style and Living Sacrifice. After about an hour and a half of a pure metal onslaught the members gracefully took their final bow for the evening and exited the stage.

All in all, this was a great show, and anyone that has the chance to catch any of the bands on this tour live DO SO! All of the bands that played that night were amazing and knew exactly how to get the crowd involved.

What's Next?

I saw them on september 28 in towson, md and it was amazing. soulfly and 12 tribes put on a hell of a show. instead of crisis bieng there we got the unwanted pleasure of seeing Agents of the sun. well that was one band i will never listen to again. they were the bubblegum metal. they sounded like everything on the radio and mtv. they were the only band that didnt sell one bit of merchandise and they got booed after every song, they did not fit the bill at all. However i wanted to see crisis and was quite disappointed they were not going to play that show. Soulfly made up for it, the instrumental break in the middle was great it gave everyone a chance to cool down and relax, right before they picked it up again with execution style. It was amazing, max's little brother has an awesome voice also, maybe he will follow in his brothers footsteps. The only thing that blew (besides agents of the sun) was the fact that the guards pulled all the girls out of the pit, so youd have to run in when they weren t paying attention to you and try to keep them from grabbing you and pulling you out. It was irritating cuz i was holding my own. O well it was an awesome show, one of the best i have seen in years.
