A couple of weeks back I missed an opportunity to see At The Gates, Pallbearer, and some other groups. I was a little bummed by that, but it turns out there are three upcoming concerts that I would love to go see. Unfortunately, I can't justify the expense in seeing all three so I had a decision to make.
Here are the choices:
1. Judas Priest with Saxon.
2. Volbeat with Anthrax and Crobot.
3. Mayhem Fest featuring Slayer and King Diamond.
As much as I would love to see Judas Priest at some point (and I probably won't get another opportunity), I don't really care much for Saxon. I saw Volbeat opening for Megadeth a few years back and don't care for Crobot, but Anthrax would have been interesting. Ultimately though, Mayhem Fest was the way to go. A lot of the other bands there are terrible, though I do enjoy Jungle Rot. But I cannot pass up an opportunity to see both Slayer and King Diamond. I may not have another chance to see either of them. So I made my decision. I will probably just show for the last two bands, have work and all that since the concert is a Tuesday and two hours from home.
