WHO: Alice In Chains, Deftones, Mastodon
WHERE: Molson Amphitheatre, Toronto
WHEN: September 18 2010
In all seriousness, BlackDiamondSkye should be the name of a new hybrid shot.
Mix whiskey (Mastodon), Jagermeister (Deftones) and rum (Alice In Chains) and the result is a ruthless concoction that only knows how to be diabolical. For the actual tour itself, it only knows how to drop your jaw and fill it with high octane energy splashed with sheer excitement. The Toronto pit stop for the arena tour showed no signs of fatigue as Mastodon kicked faces in, Deftones delivered shots to the ribcage and Alice In Chains crooned over the helpless, with all three acts clashing raw vocal pipes with a severe amount of shredding.
