Coal Chamber/Sevendust Concert

Went to see Coal Chamber and Sevendust recently at the Kalamazoo State Theater. The opening bands were Day In The Life and Human Waste Project. Day In The Life was pretty good and Human Waste Project was very good. They had a chick lead singer that kicked ass, she had a voice that went from a really high pitched soft voice to deep screams and everything inbetween, they really got the place warmed up.
Sevendust came on next and the place went nuts. This was the first time I had seen or really even heard of them (a couple songs on the radio but that's it). I was quite surprised by them, from the sound of them on the radio I didn't think they were going to be that good. They put on a very cool show, but I was there to see Coal Chamber.
They opened with "Sway" and got everything started off right. Their whole set ruled, these guys rock! Dez's vocals are some of the best I've heard live, he can scream with the best of them. And the rest of the band was right in stride, a very intense show. They closed the show with "Loco" which ended it the same way it began. If you get the chance to see Coal Chamber do it, these guys kick ass!
