What’s going on in the world now more than ever is so crazy. This is a make-or-break time for humanity.

Most Best-Of compilations tend to be a cash-grabbing marketing vehicle of old classics with a token new song to market as a single.

As with all Mew tours, lead singer Jonas Bjerre’s wonderful and strange visuals accompanied a majority of the songs performed - Visuals featuring heavily on spiraling Kaleidoscopic visuals that were projected upon the band as they played.
Toronto, Canada's The Rockpile was shaken hard and fast when Faster Pussycat stormed through, along with openers CounterWait, Spin Dizzy, and Durty Little Secrets.
Dragonforce has long established that they can perform blistering fast riffs and solos - as far as I’m concerned they are untouchable in their class. What’s been great to see over the past few years is a conscientious effort from the band to work on material that adheres to more traditional genres of metal.
