Notes:

- Slayer was fantastic. The old-school setlist went over great with everyone, but it was still awesome to see everyone going nuts to Mandatory Suicide and Angel of Death. Chemical Warfare and Black Magic were highlights for me. PLAY MORE FROM SOUTH OF HEAVEN!
- Suicidal Tendencies was fantastic! They actually play their songs a bit differently in a live setting than on album. Lots of added parts and segue's into other songs. Very interesting. The crowd was jumping and going nuts during Subliminal and War Inside My Head. I moshed during You Can't Bring Me Down :3
- Exodus was great to get everything started. Rob Dukes was funny, he goes "WHO'S READY FOR SOME FUCKING METAL TONIGHT? IT'S US, ANTHRAX, SUICIDAL AND THEN SLAYER!" and he was like "Wait, I'm stoned, there's no Anthrax" but the rest of the band started to play Caught In A Mosh

Full review tomorrow!

Slayer: 9.5/10
Suicidal Tendencies: 8.5/10
Exodus: 8/10

Glad you had a great time; question when you write your review: did Tom ask for silence at some point in the set? In my review he asked for it and turns out it was for Jeff but we didn't really help because he didn't say it was for Jeff

Nuh uh. Before Die By The Sword, he was like "DO YOU BELIEVE IN THE WORD?" and no one really understood what he was talking about. He was then like "...do you know what the word says?" and again, not really anything. So he laughed and just went straight into the song.

It looked like he wanted to say something before War Ensemble but everyone kept chanting SLAYER so he just smiled and launched right into it. :3

If no one yelled "BIRD IS THE WORD" you did it wrong.

At our show he started out with "If you're a mile high...." and I thought it was going to be a pot joke, but then he asked for silence and it got weird...

What can be said about Slayer that hasn’t already been beaten to death by millions of fans over three decades? They’re possibly the most universally loved (and loathed after a certain point) metal band all the world over, and it’s not such a far stretch to argue that Slayer is the most important and influential heavy metal band of all time. Last night, the loudest and fastest of the Big Four of Thrash Metal made their way to the Uptown Theater in Kansas City for a night of evil speed supported by crossover legends Suicidal Tendencies and one of the few bands to predate Slayer, the inimitable Exodus.

Opening the show to an already large and loud crowd was Exodus, the Bay Area band that, while coming to prominence at the same time as Metallica and Slayer, never quite reached the same level of popularity as their contemporaries. Perhaps that has put a chip on their shoulder, because Exodus comes out fast and doesn’t let up. Frontman Rob Dukes is a far cry from classic Exodus vocalist Paul Baloff, choosing to have a more harsh style of singing than Paul’s melodic style, but it works well – especially when performing later-era Exodus songs, such as the mid-paced thrasher “War Is My Shepherd.” Of course, Exodus’ most popular album is their first, “Bonded By Blood” and the majority of their 30-minute set was dedicated to that album. The crowd responded with lots of headbanging and huge circle pits. Exodus’ ode to the circle pit, “The Toxic Waltz” incited one of the biggest of the night. Their set was full of energy and was perfect to get the crowd ready for the upcoming bands.

After a surprisingly short changeover of only about 15 minutes, Venice Beach crossover lord’s Suicidal Tendencies took the stage. With vocalist asking, “Kansas City, what the fuck is going on around here?!” they launched into “You Can’t Bring Me Down” and spent their hour-or-so set providing the most melodic and fun music of the night. Suicidal Tendencies came from the California hardcore punk scene, so their music has a bit more in common with bands like The Dead Kennedys than Slayer, but their later-album songs introduced a great deal of thrash metal to their sound and caused a ruckus in the underground scene back in the 80s. Suicidal focused mainly on their second album “Join the Army” (Possessed to Skate, War Inside My Head) and their third album “How Will I Laugh Tomorrow When I Can’t Even Smile Today” (Trip At The Brain, Pledge Your Allegiance). Suicidal Tendencies has slowly been climbing back into the public eye with a lot of touring and licensing of their songs out to various forms of media. They still bring an amazing skate punk/thrash show despite being around for over 30 years, and that alone is cause for moshing celebrations.

It seems like headliners Slayer never stay away from the Kansas City area for too long. Their last legitimate headlining US tour in 2007 was at Memorial Hall and their appearances on the Mayhem Festival in 2009 and 201 along with their co-headlining tour with Megadeth in 2012 all hit Sandstone (or Capitol Federal, Or Cricket Wireless, or whatever it is now) Amphitheater. Thankfully, it seems the Kansas City crowd hasn’t grown weary of Slayer just yet. On this particular tour, Gary Holt of Exodus was replacing the late, great Jeff Hanneman on guitars and Paul Bostaph, their drummer from 1992 to 2001, replaced Dave Lombardo behind the kit. Both performed their duties quite admirably and no one could really tell the difference. A huge difference, though, came in the choice of songs to perform. Slayer played 19 songs last night, but not a single song was released past 1991. The first five Slayer albums are almost universally proclaimed as some of the best heavy metal albums ever made, and to get 19 cuts off those is almost unheard of for Slayer in this day and age. Some highlights were undoubtedly “Chemical Warfare” and “Captor of Sin” off the 1984 “Haunting the Chapel” EP and “The Antichrist” and “Black Magic,” two rare cuts off their 1983 debut album “Show No Mercy.” It was a classic night for a classic band with a classic crowd in attendance.
