The one that springs to mind is a Cloven Hoof performance in Cyprus. Russ North had just joined the band again and has a history of drinking. The band kicked him out and uploaded a video of him "performing" at this gig which consisted of him falling over multiple times and just screaming high falsetto notes at random.

I exchanged some Youtube words with their guitarist and now singer Joe Whelan and he said he was told to put the video up (presumably by Lee Payne) it was only up for a few hours I think and then it was taken down and I can't find it anywhere. The title of the video was actually titled "The fall of Russ" or something like that.



I wanna see!!!!

Yeah, It's too bad, about 20 people watched it and then it was taken down.

The mention of Epicardiectomy's ridiculous performance (show mee circle pit, show mee show mee!) brough me to Last Days of Humanity:

I really like the bassist's "business as usual" style.

A couple of years ago I read an interview with Mikael Akerfeldt telling about one of his worst live shows ever (if i remember well it was a European (?) festival appearance), apparently opeth's second guitar player couldn't play that night (or dropped out or something like that, not sure...) and Akerfeldt didn't want to cancel the show so he performed without his second guitar player. It seemed that show was full of mistakes because Akerfelt had to fill in the second lead guitar gaps himself last-minute, and he seemed to have fucked up a lot during songs... I was wondering if anyone knows which show exactly this was. I am extremely curious for this; would love to see any live video's of this on Youtube, hehe...

EDIT: okay nvm, found it through the Blabbermouth search option, surprisingly easy, wtf... :D It seems sound issues were the cause of the chaos on stage

Man, AxCx is fucking great. I love his crappy Baloff impression at 6:40. "It ain't about no goldfish."

AxCx shows are great entertainment for sure. There should be plenty of gigs on youtube that end up after a fight (both physical and verbal) either with audience members or club/stage technics (like that one above).

I saw Kamelot live at Wacken 2008 and Roy Khan was awful. Listening to the footage now, there's quite a few other fuckups as well

Damn, this is tough to watch. I saw them in early 2010 in London, and he was pretty good then as far as I remember. That said, it was a small club gig not a huge stadium show: don't know if that'd make any difference. His performance on their live album is brilliant. Thing is though, his voice noticeably deteriorated in some ways through their albums: compare his range on something like Fourth Legacy to the last album they did with him. I liked how the writing shifted to match his failing range, but it's pretty sad. I still don't really know what happened with that guy...


Khan was pretty sick with the flu or something at that gig if I recall. You can see in his face and head movements that he's seriously out of it. He's also apparently a minister/church hand or something in Norway singing songs for the church now. Like, not even kidding. See here: http://vimeo.com/69357919 Funnily enough, he sounds better here than he has in quite a while.

How does that make him a "minister/church hand or something"??

I'd be remiss if I didn't mention that famous clip of Venom slopping and sucking their way through Black Metal. Still good to go back to for a laugh every so often.

I saw Krisiun play a mind-blowing set and then totally fuck up 'Black metal', by far the easiest song they play :lol:

I've heard people say "hard to fuck up a Venom song" before, but it's surprising how easily their songs can be made to just not sound right. it's debatable that Venom can even do it on a regular basis nowadays!

Demontage did thrash through a cover of "Don't Burn the Witch" on stage the other week, but it would have been utterly embarrassing if we hadn't practised it. I think a lot of bands feel they're better than Venom and that they can just half-arse their way through their songs. Nope!

Well apparently he also looks like this now too.

Doesn't really prove that he's a minister, but he's definitely singing songs for the church now.
