AT THE GATES SOUND AWESOME LIVE. CAVALERA CONSPIRACY, NOT SO MUCH.
Blabbermouth posted the following live vids of a reunited At the Gates playing “Suicide Nation” at the Electric Weekend Festival in Madrid and Cavalera Conspiracy (a.k.a. the semi-reunited Sepultura) performing “Sanctuary” at the Netherlands’ Pinkpop festival this past week. And even though the Cavalera Conspiracy footage is pro-shot and the At the Gates footage is from some dude’s cell phone, I gotta say, I think ATG sound like they have their shit together, while the Cavaleras could use some more practice. I’m all for a punk rock down n’ dirty ethos in metal, but they sound looser than Courtney Love’s vagina.
I guess I’ll know for sure how these bands are live when Vince and I check ’em out later this summer. In the meantime, feel to free to argue amongst yourselves.
AT THE GATES – “SUICIDE NATION”
CAVALERA CONSPIRACY – “SANCTUARY”
