KREATOR DESTROYED THE AVALON 9/26/2012 HOLLYWOOD GERMAN THRASH METAL

Recap of Accept at the Avalon (opener for Kreator)

ACCEPT AND KREATOR PUT ON A DEVASTATING METAL PERFORMANCE AT THE AVALON IN HOLLYWOOD 9/26/2012

This show was INTENSE.   It was quite the interesting scene of thrash fans for a Wednesday afternoon.  There were long lines to gain entry into the venue with many fans sporting heavy metal jean jackets with tons of band patches sewn on and all kinds of concert t-shirts that you don’t see everyday around town. IT was easy to tell that these concertgoers were in for the long haul and that it was going to be a wild evening.    It’s always safe to assume you can expect the unexpected around Hollywood and Vine and today was definitely one of those days.

Check out the passenger – ha ha.

Once inside, there was an impressive display of merchandise for the fans in attendance.

Prior to their taking the stage, this guy told me he’s seen Kreator 12 times (I guess that makes 13 now).   He was so pumped before the show and even more so afterwards.   We’re talking REAL ENTHUSIASM.

When they took the stage, it was an all-out attack on all of the senses.  The lighting, the powerful music –  it was so much to take in.   It rocked and it was quite devastating.  The sound in the theater was great and Kreator proceeded to figuratively demolish the venue with their brutal music.  They pushed the limits, for sure.

The crowd was an obviously dedicated group of fans spanning many age groups and any other group type you could think of- age, ethnicity/ race, sex (the amount of women – and attractive ones at that – at this show was rather surprising…. and most of them knew the words!)  That aspect alone was pretty interesting. 

The pit was absolutely insane at times. It sure was fun to watch. The intensity was astonishing.  This was a full-on concert experience!

I’m not sure how one recovers from a show like this.   I know I haven’t and probably won’t for some time.  And that’s a good thing.   Here’s to some killer thrash metal.
