You mean, he's seen Maiden 266 times? That's hardcore!
Yup, hahaha.

and the band sounded awesome, except for Nicko, who should be fired. He's approaching Abbadon-levels of shittiness at this point. So fucking bad!
Nicko was slipping hard, first night especially. Of course, no one else I talked to heard that at all ('what are you talking about, they were aaawsum!!!"), and thus my observations have proven to all that I was, as usual, a dick...
Memento Mori - Songs for the Apocalypse Vol. IV. I vastly prefer their cover of "Animal Magnatism" to the original. Klaus Meine was trying to sound sexy, I think, and failed utterly. Messiah, instead, goes for a creeper vibe, and he fucking NAILS it.
I looove the original. I think the MM cover is good, but the original to me is absolutely Sick. It's one of my favorite Scorpions songs, and one of my favorite Rudy moments. Everything you said there about Klaus and Messiah, flip it and reverse it for me.

That fourth album is definitely my least preferred Memento Mori record, too.

Sodom - Persecution Mania. Alarmed about my life. Like that Obliveon album, this one features lyrics that are really, really great despite the English being rather poor.
I hope I get to see them with Blackfire, and they do "Nuclear Winter." I got a few hours to decide whether I will travel to Wacken this year for Mercyful Fate, or will I do Copenhell instead, and that Sodom "Agent Orange" set is weighting in heavily on my judgement.
