More 24

We continued watching 24 today.  I think we are up to 6pm or so, can’t remember for sure.  Bowled again tonight.  Felt much better than last week but my scores weren’t very good.  Metallica’s album is 9 days away, Chuck Liddell is fighting this coming Saturday night, and Metallica also announced their tickets will be on sale September 13th for their concert in St. Louis.  $55.50 is the cheapest seat for a concert starting at 7pm that has 2 bands I could care less about opening for them and then a presumed 2 hour set from Metallica as the show headliner.  If my wife and I go, it will be a minimum $150 deal including parking, gas, and a few snacks/sodas.  I’m just not sure I’m going to put that much money out for 4-5 hours of entertainment.  If I knew for sure they were coming back to St. Louis on another tour as they usually do as headliners of an all day concert, I would rather just go to that.  The first and only time I saw Metallica live was just like that.  Summer Sanitarium featured like 6 or 7 bands and the concert was an all day deal.  Very worth it.  I’m on the fence on this one.

    HAHAHA! That made me laugh! Who are you kidding? You’ll go to the concert, I have no doubt!

    Hey, I meant it when I typed it. That was before I heard the new album (yeah, I’m a weenie and listened to leaks on youtube). So I guess we need to make plans for that night and prepare for not being able to hear the next day.

    HA from me too. I can’t imagine you having the opportunity to go and turning it down, no matter how bad the first two bands are. HAVE FUN! :) By the way, Logan found a band he likes and wants you to check it out: War of Ages.

    Well, I’ve only seen them once and they have been back in St. Louis since the first time I saw them and I did skip that one. But that was mainly due to their last album not being so great.

     

    Their new album is a return to their previous ability so it changes the perspective. If it wasn’t a good one, I would definitely be sitting it out.

     

    I’ll have to check that band out, from what I’ve seen that he listens to, I will probably like it.

     

    Am I really that predictable? I’ll have to start throwing some curves…

    I went on youtube and found some War of Ages videos and I also checked out their Wiki page. I’m safe to assume that I’ll never see Leroy and Diane at their concert… I didn’t know there was such a thing as a metalcore Christian band.

     

    The music I do like, but the “singing” is a tad bit much for me. The guttural vocal element hasn’t ever grown on me although I can listen to them from time to time. I’m thinking I’m just a little too old to appreciate this particular sing-style.

     

    While searching for these guys, I even ran across Thrash Christian bands and even Black Metal Christian bands. Learn something new every day I guess. Black Metal and Christian, I would never have guessed it ever would be a possibility.
