Hibria and Hatebreed @ Loud Park

I started off day two (Sunday, October 18, 2009) at Loud Park a little later than day one. There weren’t any early bands that I wanted to see. The full schedule can be seen here. I arrived in time to see the last half of Hibria, a band I hadn’t heard before. They sounded like a mix of early Queensryche and DragonForce. Although I really like early Queensryche, I got bored of Hibria after a few songs so I went for a stroll instead.

Hatebreed was next. I am not a fan of Hatebreed. Every time Pandora selects a Hatebreed song for my stations I end up thumbing it down so I don’t have to hear it again. Live, in Tokyo, however, they put on a good show. The singer was very upbeat and the crowd loved them. I don’t know exactly why I liked them, since I don’t like NuMetal, Metalcore, Rap Metal or whatever category they fit in, but they somehow were interesting to watch in concert on this day.

Will I continue to ban them from my Pandora play lists? Probably. If you feel the same way and happen to be at a gig when they are the opening act, I suggest you at least experience them live.

By the way, Pandora doesn’t work in Japan. Pandora is one of only a few things I miss about living in the good old USA. I’m stuck with Live365 Internet Radio over here, and it isn’t nearly as good.
