PiercingMetal Thoughts: It might surprise a lot of the readership to learn that I have never, ever witnessed the power of the Deftones live in concert. We’ve been interested here at the Metal Media Command HQ for sometime but there was always either a scheduling conflict or availability of time that prevented it from happening. I’ve never seen Poppy either which makes Gojira the only group that I have seen on the bill and I’ve done that a healthy number of times. For this run I am going to do my best to close out this rift in my coverage history at long last because so many of my friends tell me how amazing they are in concert. Gojira will be a solid supporting act and I am quite curious about Poppy so as I close this one up I wonder what you think about the news. Chime in down below in the comments section and I will see you next time around.
