A tempest of metal. February 21, 2013 Posted by Mookie
Klo Tark forged a planar bridge during The Storm of Souls, though he used it to switch places with Dominic. He also used the thoughts and emotions of those around him instead of incorporating the Tempest itself.

I'm surprised today's comic got done at all. I am in so much physical pain from Tuesday's concert that it was an effort to produce anything. I hope you folks like it, though.

Gojira was incredible. Well worth the time and effort to drive to New York City and back again in the same night from the New England area. It was one of the most intense and powerful performances I've seen from a heavy metal band, and I'm glad I was able to catch them for the last show of their U.S. tour.

And I fell in love with the opening act, The Devin Townsend Project. Anyone who can get a mosh pit to do jazz hands is worthy of more attention. He tried to get the pit to do a group hug, too, but that wasn't so successful. Still an amazing performance and I'll be looking for more of his music.

Between the two bands, there sure were more messages of love, peace and tolerance than I'm accustomed to at heavy metal shows. It made for a great, unique vibe that mixed well with the beautifully brutal music. If you ever have the opportunity to see either Gojira or The Devin Townsend Project live, I highly recommend treating yourself to a ticket or two.

I only hope I don't fall apart for tonight's Enslaved show. Yeesh.

That's all from me for now.
Rock on.
