@TryTheBeal! texted me with terrible news, Riley Gale, singer for Power Trip, has died.

 

I like a decent amount of metal, some of it not so much but Power Trip's albums are albums I can listen straight through, not skipping a track.  They're constantly on workout playlists.  Matter of fact, I've been listening to their live one while working out these past few days.

RIP, Riley Gale.

At its best and above all else, Metal is passion.  An unceasing battery of free will and human dignity.  Riley had the goods and he put it on the mic every night.  A monster talent.

 

A huge loss for the scene.  RIP

Man, I never gave Power Trip the time of day. I knew of them, I just never listened to them. There are just so many bands out there. Anyways, the first I had heard of Riley was in the Body Count song when it came out. But, it appears I have been slacking. Their stuff is pretty kick ass. It really sucks that this dude died so young.

How was the Down show?

 

Revisiting Sepultura's debut currently. Man, they were fierce.

 

The Down show was great. Typical Phil saying nonsense,  which was quite funny. Every song goes out to someone. Example, and this isn't a thing he actually said, just an example of the silliness of it all: "I want to send this song out to hmmm, Japan. I love you, mmm, god damn I love you. This is called Eyes of the South." Watch the show, you'll understand. 

 

Here is the show on YouTube. It sounded better live that night. Also, if it is set up like the tours where they did "A Night with Down." So there's a big long introduction. There is a timer in the right corner of when the show starts if you want to skip to it. Also, the sound on this video is really low.

 

My wife and I drank a ton starting before this concert, and then made a night of listening and watching Pantera concerts and shows which we eventually started to bring in old Metallica and Megadeth as well as Anthrax, Slayer, Testament etc... We had a blast!!! One of our most fun nights in quarantine.

I've seen all those bands multiple times, with the exception of Testament. I have never gotten to see them. I saw Pantera around 8 times, it was a blast every time. I have three that stick out in my mind.

 

1. Girlfriend (now wife) and I were up against the front rail headbanging and everyone kept squishing me into her and her against the rail. So, I locked my arms so I couldn't move and not squish her. This huge dude behind me got pissed (he was getting pushed as well and took it out on me) and put me in a headlock without warning. My wife, realizing something was wrong turned around and punched the dude right in the face. About the same time Big Val (remember him?) picked me up like a ragdoll and pulled me over the gate. Asked me what was going on, I told him, and he told me to stick around to meet Pantera. Cool, so we did, but security kicked us out. As we were leaving Dime was sitting on some steps on the phone. He acknowledged us and us him, but we didn't want to interrupt his conversation.

 

2. I saw them with White Zombie opening and my friend and I dropped some LSD. Awesome concert with WZ theatricals. But, Pantera was the real show. Dime running with beautiful rainbows flowing behind him. Phil's bottom lip dropping to the floor. It was a blast.

 

3 Another time was Ozzfest. We were all headbanging and watching the show. A lady in front of us got dropped hard. Someone behind us had thrown an empty 5th and it smacked her right in the back of the head. Her friends were there to immediately take care of her.

And that's when you knew she was "the one".
