Yeah, I love Andy's playing. He's got such a distinct style and some serious chops. I remember listening to Death's Individual Thought Patterns and hearing that unmistakable whammy-warble in one of the solos. Immediately ran to look up who was in the band for that and yup, it's Andy Laroque.Andy larocque was on point the other night...
Such a great player

Same with the solo on Cold by At the Gates. The version of that solo they do live is....not the same. :lol:

I'm interested in the Tulsa date. Maybe we can carpool. I may even convince my girlfriend to go. What better way to really test true love than to listen to a painted man sing in falsetto about Satan and dead babies?Yup. Just got the press release announcing ticket sales for Tulsa - 9AM Friday morning. King Diamond and Exodus.
