RANDY BLYTHE, MAX CAVALERA and ROBB FLYNN Make Surprise Appearances At SUICIDE SILENCE Mitch Lucker Tribute Show (with video)
I am pretty jealous of those of you in the Los Angeles area who were able to witness the Suicide Silence "Ending Is The Beginning" Mitch Lucker Memorial Show, which happened last night, Dec. 21, 2012 at the Fox Theater in Pomona, CA. It looked like quite the celebration, with a few surprise vocalists thrown in to spruce things up.
Lamb of God's Randy Blythe, the legendary Max Cavalera of Soulfly and Sepultura and Machine Head's Robb Flynn were the surprise guests vocalists joining the already stellar cast of previously announced frontmen including Tim Lambesis of As I Lay Dying, Chad Grey of Hellyeah, Eddie Hermida of All Shall Perish, Phil Bozeman of Whitechapel among others.
The show was in tribute to Lucker, who crashed his motorcycle on Halloween night and died from the resulting injuries. All proceeds from the show when to the education fund of Mitch's daughter, Kenadee. While the entire night was filmed for a DVD, which will see eventual release, here are some solid cellphone bootlegs to give you an idea of the madness that ensued:
Here's Randy Blythe of Lamb of God joining the band for "You Only Live Once"
Max Cavalera got up on stage and jammed on the Sepultura classic "Roots, Bloody Roots" in what I'm sure was a big moment for the rest of the band:
Robb Flynn of Machine Head joined Mark from Suicide Silence and some other dude I do not recognize to cover Black Sabbath's "Die Young"
Chad Grey of HELLYEAH, Mudvayne helps out on "Fuck Everything"
Tim from As I Lay Dying helping out on "Wake Up"
Here's Phil from Whitechapel helping out on "Unanswered"

"Slaves to Substance" with Eddie of All Shall Perish
Danny from Asking Alexandria helping out on a track:
Big Chocolate performing "Disengage"
"Smoke" with Anthony from After The Burial
"Blugeoned To Death" with (I think) Ricky Hoover formerly of Suffokate.

"No Time To Bleed" with a dude I don't recognize
The band saying thank you at the end of the show:
Overall, it seems like it was quite the night, and I look forward to the DVD. We'll keep you posted on release details.
