Despite the lack of marquee tours, metal isn’t going anywhere. If anything, it’s just becoming a rare treat to see legends such as SLIPKNOT and LAMB OF GOD share the same stage, which is why we had to make a cameo at their recent stop at Toronto’s Molson Amphitheatre (August 8th). While the Saturday night stand was full of beards, patch jackets, devil horns, and a solid helping of BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE, the whole thing really belonged to the headliners. Lamb Of God thrashed through a meaty 10-song setlist that underlined Ashes Of The Wake and some new material (“512”, “Still Echoes”) only to lead into Corey Taylor and Slipknot’s closer, which spat out a Van Halen intro and powered through their 1999 self-titled and .5: The Gray Chapter. The gig barely encountered any pitfalls and Jeff Filman was there to grab some visual proof. Check out his photo gallery above.
