I've always loved Kontos in this band, there's something about the way he hits a snare that sounds ridiculously heavy. I put him in the same camp as Gene Hoglan & Igor Cavalera, drummers that just have an X factor in their playing which you can't re-create.
Seen them tons since the 90's but never with him, earliest was Donington 95 in the transition between him and McClain, they had the guy from Madball standing in who didn't really cut it. Already have my tickets for Brixton.
