With Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth, and Anthrax doing some festival dates in Europe right now, it got me thinking. Why in the bloody hell are fans wasting their hard earned dollars to see this shit. Megadeth without Chris Poland or Marty Freidman, and Anthrax milking the Joey Belladonna era without Dan Spitz. I dunno…..just seems a lil’ bittersweet, and a quick money grab to me. I guess if people are that hell bent on hearing all their favorite hits from the top four thrash bands from the 80′s in one sitting, then it’s all worth it. For me, I would much rather see a “big four” tour of today’s thrash breed.
I still think a Thrash tour of Municipal Waste, Bonded By Blood, Warbringer, and Toxic Holocaust would be a hot bill. Obviously, not the same level of the 80′s big four, but those bands wont be able to tour forever, and as the final curtain call comes-a-callin’ for them, we need to support the new generation of shit kickers. Oh well, at least I still have my ticket for the Exodus / Bonded By Blood show coming up in August, so screw Sonicsphere.
All the beef in the past with Dave Mustaine, and Lars Ulrich that has transpired, and now they are doing these festivals together. The tender feelings I get thinking of those two sharing the same stage together, just makes me want to crank up this oh-so awesome song.
