The most metal concert reviews in LA

All Your Bass Are Belong to The PRODIGY

5/27/09 @ The Palladium

The Prodigy is the law. You can’t break the law. Destructo and Glitch Mob know this but they still managed to warm up the crowd to a decent level. I thought it was weird that they didn’t have a break between the 2 DJ sets, but whatever. On to the main event…

The Prodigy opened with World’s On Fire from the new record Invaders Must Die. They came out relentlessly and never let up. The crowd gave it all back jumping, moshing and singing along all night. The band hardly breaked between songs and the energy just kept going. Playing guitar/bass for the band was Rob Holliday, who has also been a member of Marilyn Manson’s band. They also had a live drummer but I don’t know who it is. Other tracks played from the new album were the amazing track Omen, Run With the Wolves, Take Me to the Hospital, Warrior’s Dance and of course the title track. We were also treated to Comanche from the bonus disc The Lost Beats EP, which they used to end their set pre-encore. Old favorites of the night included Their Law, Breathe, Poison, Firestarter, Voodoo People, Diesel Power, Smack My Bitch Up and Out of Space, which was the last track of the night.

Surprisingly (maybe) none of the tracks from Always Outnumbered Never Outgunned were played. I would’ve loved to hear Girls or Spitfire. I also wanted to hear Funky Shit, but since they had to fit in all those new songs, of course some old tracks would have to be cut.

Zyner got to see the show from the front row and not only got some amazing pictures, but Maxim’s wristband as well! Yes she washed it… I was in the pit of course

This was the 1st time seeing the band for both of us and hopefully not the last. Liam, Keith and Maxim delivered and delivered hard.
