'A phantom,' said my Uncle Mycroft, who had just materialised, 'is essentially a heteromorphic wave pattern that gains solidity when the apparition converts thermal energy from the surroundings to visible light. It's a fascinating process and I'm amazed no one has thought of harnessing it - a holographic TV that could operate from the heat given off by an average-size guinea pig.' ~ First Among Sequels, Jasper Fforde
Heard this song today and I recall when DIO was playing in my town at a somewhat small venue, I think it took just about 1000-1500 people. It was an old dancing hall with a sturdy wooden floor. Anyway, we were a bit late and we walked up to these big wooden swing-doors leading in to the hall when we heard the keyboard intro to Mob Rules. Just as we opened the door they started playing the guitar-riff to it and there were around 1500 people standing completely still on this floor, but as the drums and the bass kicks in the sound was like a steamroller from hell thrashing over me. The bass and the drums made my eyeballs feeling the pounding like someone was poking me in the eye, so much that tears were coming out. The power was so immense it almost sucked the air out of my lounges.
At the same moment - as the bass and drums kicked in - it was like 1500 people got an electric surge through their bodies in there and went totally crazy, jumping up and down. The whole wooden floor felt like it was a rolling wave under my feet, when it bent up and down, from all those people thrashing around. Like walking on a waterbed. I have been to quite a lot of hardrock concerts over the years but the powerful feeling I've got from this opening song floored me. The sheer power was nuclear.
So crank it up - bass and volume - and get floored.
PS: It was at a place at this size, but an open floor instead of a theatre-style. The sound in this clip sucked though.>>
