Judas Priest and Slayer, Molson Amphitheatre, August 18
Pioneering metal-urgists took a day off from their Ozzfest gig to fill up the Molson Amphitheatre with legions of ramjammers ready to go nuts - which they did, even if they were often being rained on. Slayer began their set with God Hates Us All from the album of the same name, but the crowd freaked most for such oldies as War Ensemble, Mandatory Suicide and, of course, the selections they chose from the undeniably classic Reign In Blood.
The newly re-Halforded Judas Priest then played, and although Rob was dressed in typical ludicrous fashion, he hit all the high notes while the band let go with songs from across their career. And yes, he came out on a motorcycle to introduce Hell Bent For Leather.
