"Music As A Weapon Tour" - DISTURBED, DROWNING POOL, ADEMA, STEREOMUD, & SYSTEMATIC
Tsongas Arena, Lowell MA
REVIEW: Last night I caught the "Music As A Weapon Tour" - featuring DISTURBED, DROWNING POOL, ADEMA, STEREOMUD and SYSTEMATIC. Every band mentioned their music being a weapon against pop and terrorism, with many songs being dedicated to Osama. Only saw last couple songs from SYSTEMATIC so I still have no opinion on them, but they had a surprisingly large crowd going totally sick for them. I was impressed by STEREOMUD, it is always tough to get into a band live not knowing their stuff at all but these guys rocked and I even realized they had a tune on the radio - "Pain". ADEMA didn't do anything for me. Then it was time for people I did know - DROWNING POOL. Everyone knows their big hit "Bodies" - 'let the bodies hit the floor...' but their whole debut CD really kicks. They did all the right things to prove themselves to me - came on stage to IRON MAIDEN'S "Die With Your Boots On", did a little Gene Simmons traditional stage banter and a chorus of KISS's "I Love It Loud" and quoted lines from Fight Club. Finally it was time for DISTURBED - and they did not disappoint. This is by far the best of the current crop of new rock acts. They played their entire debut CD and one new tune called 'Prayer' I think. Check out Boston Globe review.
