Well, that was AWESOME.
If anyone else is seeing them on this tour, you're in for a treat.
One word for them, BRUTAL!! I loved Animals as Leaders as well, looking forward to them doing some headline dates in October with TesseracT at the Scala.
I raved about this afterwards, definitely the most technically amazing gig I've ever been to, brutal is definitely the right word for it. Great moody lighting too...
FUCK. How did I miss this?
A fun war, but war nonetheless. MESHUGGAH - that is all.
The Forum gig was pretty intense stuff.
Animals As Leaders are a crock of shite though.
back in college in 2006, after hearing 'Rational Gaze' on the R1 Rock Show and feeling like ... what is the what ... can you even do that with a guitar? THESE RIFFS ARE NOT NORMAL. blew my mind.
but the I couldn't cope with the lyrics. I was in a weird, incredibly dark phase of depression, and Jens' (well, Thomas') lyrics cut right into me, made me feel a kind of electric existential dread that I'd been fighting to get over.
sold it to my friend Jemma, who laughed a bit. mean!
but yeah, 'mazin'. the guitar rhythms, I just, I don't even...guitarists, have you ever tried playing them? wrist spasms.
I wrote it listening to 'I'; go figure.
would love to see them live.
