Hatebreed Sofia

Tue, Jul 17, 2012 at 3:16 AM

It was the best Hardcore show I've seen from years, probably from 6 years or so. The worm up list was from two good Bulgarian bands, that I've seen a thousand times Vendetta and Last Hope, the second one is my favorite, and one Macedonian band I see for second time Smut. It was a good worm up for Hatebreed.

The Hatebreed performance was like always, 12 songs without any stopping, great contact with the crowd, and one friend of mine, she managed to get on stage and hug Jamey :) it was sweet.

The place and the crowd were sick, it's a emblematic place in my city in the woods, where many generations have gathered to listen to different music over the years. The moshing was the extremest thing I've seen from years, one friend got dislocatedd shoulder, I got some bleeding. But over all no one got hurt more than he/she can take :) good thing no girl got hurt. My wife was a bit afriad and stood in the rear most of the time. An experience that you can have only on Hatebreed Show, amazing, extreme, such that you need a vacation after it. Hopefully we will see them next year again.

The best thing for me in the show was the uncrowded place, no more than 700 people, you feel like you know everybody, meeting friends. It was like a fan club show, not a big festival with people who do not know what is about.

PS. Actualy the songs were 15, but still felt short :)

    And it's the f***ng truth about the Hardcore shows being brutal, after being to 5 Slayer shows, a couple of Venom, Mayhem, Behemoth, Exodus, Kreator, Sepultura, Soulfly and etc. bands, I've seen the best moshing and the extremest atmosphere on a Hardcore shows. The first Hatebreed show I saw wasn't that good as a atmosphere, because of the club, it was a small place and it was overcrowded, not enough space for anything. Probably the reason behind the good atmosphere on the Hardcore shows are the kind of people going, there are many fighters and sport guys who come to the show, I personally know a friend who didn't want to come to the concert, because he is not in a good shape right now, can't lift 350 lbs or something like that :) wow. But still the metal concerts have their degree of extremism, I still remember one Soulfly concert before 10 years, there were 3 thousand people in a hall that I thought can hold no more than 2500, it was a brutal experience, many have callapsed during the show and were taken outside.

    PS I like the word extreme for describing a show

    I know all three of them, maybe I don't like only Mizar of those, the other bands are pretty good. Hey Blagica, are you planing to go to Belgrade for the Prodigy concert in September, because we will make the travel to there?

    LOL I like Mizar the most :)
    And I'm always happy with Arhangel,that is my type of music

    As for Prodigiy,no I'm not planing to go.
    We have completely different taste of music,Luckily Godsmack is out connection

    Well actually Mizar is pretty good to be honest. And I listen to bands like Prodigy because of my wife :) Other ways I don't like neither Clawfinger, neither Prodigy :) And she's listening to Slayer and Hatebreed because of me :)

    But beside Godsmack we have Soulfly, Five finger death punch and probably a couple of other bands :)

    And maybe I'm getting soft, but that song, almost made me cry, that Macedonians singer is great, I hope she has more songs like that:

    BTW see if you will like this they are a good friends of mine, doing some folk-metal or that kind of a style, not my style, but maybe they are doing some good music.
