We were at the Slayer, Testament and Carcass concert on Wednesday March 2nd. It was the first time we were at the famous Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, NY.

I have to admit, I don’t know much about Carcass but, they were great. They hit the stage with such killer power and good old, in your face, brass knuckle music. The band was tight and on point with style, music and energy.

Then it was time for Testament to preach on to us its classic Thrash Metal. I interviewed Chuck Billy and Eric Peterson years ago on a TV show called Johnny V’s Skitsophrenic. They guys are so down to earth and approachable. Testament killed it and brought us back to our youth.

and now – it was time for the head liners . . .”SLAYER, SLAYER, SLAYER” !.

The lights go down and the big sheet that covers the stage illuminates. The sounds of the gates of hell opening is playing and the images of crosses appears and after series of colored crosses, the moving crosses stop, upside down and in BLOOD RED .

The anticipate is almost too much to take, and then you here the iconic sound of Mr. Kerry King shredding the strings on his B.C Rich.

Then that magical moment when that giant sheet comes down and the crowd goes FRIGGIN crazy!
