First, many thanks and gratitude to Justin and Mr. Robertson for getting me that “precious” photo pass (and may this not be the last time I get it lol). I am a huge fan of Hatebreed but I am not that big on the “deathcore” scene, still I had a blast at this show, and after all i’m becoming a fan of Born of Osiris and Unearth. I used 2 digital cameras plus an old but trusty 35mm cam. I was the only one at the photo pit during Hate Eternal, Born of Osiris, Unearth and Cannibal Corpse then 4 other photogs showed up for the Hatebreed set. I met Erik (Hate Eternal) after his set on the lobby, also I saw a few of the guys from osiris going in and out of the venue early in the day. I had a greet and meet with Hatebreed after the show. there were 20 of us “die-hards” for the M&G. Hatebreed signed anything that you wanted, pictures albums, posters, at one point I asked Waynne if he had a guitar pick on him and to my surprise he did and I got it, YEAH! this was a great show for me to finish this 2009 concert season in style thanks again to Justin. this is my last confession for 2009. Happy holidays and Merry Christmas to all.
