Live preview of SoundwaveFestival 2012

Limp Bizkit

WHAT TO EXPECT:
A decidedly thinner Fred Durst trying to convince fans that nu-metal is still alive. Snarks aside, according to a review of the band’s Sonisphere show last year: “Striding onto stage with a riot-starting one-two combination of Hot Dog and My Generation, Limp Bizkit turn Knebworth House into their very own back garden party from the get go. They'll always be a divisive band (to put it politely) but to pour scorn on the band's ridiculousness is to spectacularly miss the point. There have been plenty of bands that have played this weekend that are musically superior, more spiritually enlightening and, obviously, 'cleverer' than Durst and his wrecking crew but when you can blast out hits like Break Stuff, Take A Look Around and Rollin', you can still get a party started.”

Durst has also been amping up ‘audience participation’ at the band’s recent shows, shouting out for the crowd to decide the set list. So if you are just dying to hear something off new album Gold Cobra (material off which has been minimal at their live shows) then make sure you are front row for the Bizkit.

LIKELY LIMP BIZKIT SET LIST:
Introbra – pre set
1.Hot Dog
2.My Generation
3.Livin' It Up
4.Break Stuff
5.(intro “Il Ballo Del Qua Qua")
6.Douche Bag
7.My Way
8.Boiler
9.Take a Look Around
10.(intro “Beverly Hills Cop Theme")
11.Faith
12.Rollin'
(10th July 2011 – Sonisphere, UK)

SET HIGHLIGHT
For the lovers: perennial set closer Rollin’. For the hates: When Durst cops that inevitable shoe in the head.

Mastodon

WHAT TO EXPECT:
According to the Guardian of Mastodon's show in Manchester in February this year – “The Americans are the kings of progressive metal, and make a noise so pulverisingly intense that standing within 75 yards of them makes it feel as if Dailor's machine-gun jazz fills and double bass-drum rhythms are taking place within your stomach. However, behind the walls of riffs are layers of melodic subtlety and technical virtuosity which gives them an appeal beyond metal. Troy Sanders' vocals are beautifully mournful. They do multipart harmonies as tightly as theBee Gees. Listen to them long enough, and you start hearing (or perhaps imagining) symphonic textures worthy of Bach or Schubert."

LIKELY MASTODON SET LIST:
1.Dry Bone Valley
2.Black Tongue
3.Crystal Skull
4.I Am Ahab
5.Capillarian Crest
6.Colony of Birchmen
7.Megalodon
8.Thickening
9.Blasteroid
10.Sleeping Giant
11.Ghost of Karelia
12.All the Heavy Lifting
13.Spectrelight
14.Curl of the Burl
15.Bedazzled Fingernails
16.Circle of Cysquatch
17.Aqua Dementia
18.Crack the Skye
19.Where Strides the Behemoth
20.Iron Tusk
21.March of the Fire Ants
22.Blood and Thunder
23.Encore:
23.Creature Lives
(11th February – O2 Academy Brixton, London)

SET HIGHLIGHT:
When they're joined on stage by Barney.

Break Even breaking up makes them a must-see act. Such a good live band, so much passion and awesomeness.

Just got back from Soundwave.

Soad were unbelievably good, everyone who went will say that too. Great sound, energy and a massive career spanning setlist.
Limp Bizkit were the surprise of the day for me. I wasn't expecting them to be that good, but they blew me away. Sounded great and the tribute was actually very touching.

Really? I loved SOAD. I was with a couple mates and we knew the words to all the songs so it made it really fun for us I guess. Slipknot put on a fantastic set, the part near the end where they got the entire stadium to crouch down and then jump up 'n mosh was really fun as well.


Also, on another note, trying to get into the D was really annoying. They kept closing it off and when you walked in it was empty for a while. I didn't like how they split up the D into 2 sections as well.

For real.

SOAD were boring. Super boring.

bad religion were great, though i was up the front standing next to a girl who was either waiting for manson or soad. she spent the whole time complaining to herself, but at least she didn't heckle the band.

this is the second time i've seen them, both times the audience didn't make much noise when they came out. once they started playing they were singing along and moshing, though.
