="Levman":ijww1pgz said:well, i haven't a great idea about guitarstrings and stuff, but i have to say, that i didn't like the sound as a whole. to me it also seemed, that it wasn't an exaggeratet drum and bass sound, as it's often the case on live gigs in general, but it was really hard to differenciate a melody in this single wall of guitar-drone. i regard myself as someone, who can bang his head to the most shitty sound, but i had really no motivation to dance to this.
of course, the soli were great, but as soon as max started to play, i couldn't even hear which song they were playing.
another thing which disappointed me as a soulfly fan was the lack of spirit. my expectation was, that max would say a few sentences before each song, adress the crowd and so on. instead they rattled off one song after another.
fuckin' hell, they sell t-shirts dedicated to d-low and moses, have all this religious/spiritual stuff in their lyrics and they don't lose a word about this- so where's the i n n e r s p i r i t ?
all in all, this wasn't what i expected of my first soulfly gig.
but i'd always go to see them again, this has to be an exception after all...
I'll second that.
Get Sepultura's CHAOS DVD and watch the 1992 live gig and you see the difference.
