The morning of the show we left pretty early, we had a 3 hour drive to the venue, and we wanted to get there in time to purchase the newest feature at Rams Head, called the Rock Star Entrance. Rock Star Entrance passes were only available to the first 75 people in line at the backdoor of the club. These passes entilted you to get in 2 hours before the door time. After standing inline in the cold for what seemed like forever, they finally opened the doors and let the first 75 people inside for an extra 10$. For this time we were not in the club, but in the tavern for a preshow party kinda deal. They served drinks and whatnot. Needless to say my ladyfriend who is underage got sick and we were asked to leave the club. Security was pretty much assholes about this matter. Well we still had 2 hours before the show actually started and i had an extra ticket in my pocket. After walking around for a while and calming my friend down i got the idea of buying another ticket from a scalper and then going through the front door, where different people who wouldnt notice us were working. I got the extra ticket and calmed down my friend, whom didnt believe this idea was going to work, and we proceeded through the front doors without a problem. The first band came on, I believe they were called the Ours, and wasnt much of a crowd pleaser. People came to see Manson, not the Ours. When Manson finally came on he opened with the song Cruci-Fiction in Space. Everyone was going nuts. About 5 or 6 songs into the show i believe during Mobscene.. the crowd was getting crazy and the security barracade infront of the stage broke. Security had to get on stage and threaten to stop the show if people didnt calm down alittle bit. This is what happens when you put Manson in a club that holds 1500 people, the smallest venue of the tour. After all was said and done they played 18 songs, some new and some old, and it was an AMAZING performance.

Manson and Slayer serve up two varieties of metal in Irvine

Review: The masters of thrash pummeled the audience, making the shock rocker seem a bit tepid by comparison

By WALEED RASHIDI
Special to the Register

Decisions were to be made very quickly Friday night at Verizon Wireless Amphitheater about hard rock preferences. With the co-headlining bill of metal pioneers Slayer and shock-rocker Marilyn Manson, audiences were left contemplating seemingly opposite choices. Thrash or theatrics? Rapid riffs or moody melodies? Headbanging or stage slithering?

The bill found the former focused on blunt, unadulterated delivery via traditional means (read: the radio-unfriendly thrash metal it's been playing over the past quarter-century), while the latter had his sights set on the daringly dramatic and more palatable.

And it wasn't just an opposite pairing on stage, as the audience was also noticeably divided. Slayer fans donned the more conventional metal attire black long-sleeved T-shirts and jeans whereas Manson diehards were easily spotted wearing mounds of makeup, unique hairstyles, and creative, otherworldly fashions.

Orange County metal-punk hybrid Bleeding Through launched the night with a brief yet respectable performance. Vocalist Brandan Schieppati seemed to spend more time in the audience than on stage, but his journey through rows of orchestra seats made for a more engaging show.

"Flesh Storm" opened Slayer's floodgates of fury, arriving on stage with plenty of like-minded visuals including pentagrams and upside-down crosses displayed on a screen behind the band
