toggletoggle post by the_reverend   at Sep 7,2007 7:42pm
dan, I showed that to ken, but it might be too late for them since they are going on now and you should be driving 90 towards this place.

eternal embrace: they were decent. It sounded better on the ralph's stage. If i had been a few minutes later, i would have missed them.

frozen: the first 2 songs sounded more like NBC era soilwork than frozen. (back when soilwork wasn't a nu metal band) I'm not sure if it was colin's stepped up drumming or what, but sounded totally like radical. Speaking of that dooder, he was sporting a new set of dreds.

toggletoggle post by the_reverend   at Sep 7,2007 8:48pm

toggletoggle post by inject-now at Sep 7,2007 8:50pm
sweet! leaving at 10



toggletoggle post by the_reverend   at Sep 7,2007 8:55pm
ha! I think they are 5 minutes ahead of schedule, but that won't last long.

Wow, there are a shit-ton of bands coming to marks. I'm sort of in awe.

Dreaded Silence: the rumors about this band mostly revolve around the fact that they all love the same bands and all share clothing. Except for little anthony who hasn't worn a shirt since graduation. I spent the whole time they were on stage trying to get shots of ken moving away from the mix to breath. Most of their songs were available on their demo that they were giving out. Opening for katatonia for the second time and you think ken would have gotten used to it by now. Be had the look of a little schoolgirl mixed with someone who's afraid to poop. I heard a bit more opeth in their set. Scott's stage motions remind me of the guy from candiria... watching him move makes me feel like i'm watching a gay dude hit on me.

tripmynd: any band that replaces an "I" with a "y" is automativally nu-metal. It does the exact opposite of replacing a "c" with a "k", a "s" with a "z", or a "t" with an upsidedown cross. This band is the answer to the question "I like both tool and fear factory, what if they had a love child?" they even did a sepultura cover. They definitely had the largest crowd thus far of the night. I have a feeling that their friends and fans will not be staying past one doom band.



toggletoggle post by the_reverend   at Sep 7,2007 11:08pm
swallow the sun: they were pretty awesome. A complete surprise. The singer had a really raspy voice. Hard to place their sound. Black/doom,but if I didn't know better, I would have guessed they were from the south and not across the seas.

insomnium: they had the keyboardist from swallow the sun. Pretty friggin cool. I could have easily left at this point and been a happy camper. Melodic metal with some katatonia elements mixed in.



toggletoggle post by the_reverend   at Sep 8,2007 2:24am

toggletoggle post by Eternal Embrace at Sep 8,2007 8:05am
Someone described Swallow the Sun pretty well last night, a more solid version of Slumber. I think they had a little Rapture in their sound as well.

toggletoggle post by i_am_lazy at Sep 8,2007 1:04pm
Oh, I was the one that yelled out "Go back to 1997!" at Tripmynd.

That was so amazing.

This show was awesome. My back and feet killed and the smoke/heat/shitty beer/UV spotlight was fucking unbearable, but it was worth it. Katatonia was amazing. I liked Swallow The Sun and Insomnium a lot too. Could have done without Scar Symmetry. Jonas should have stuck with Carnal Forge and Centinex. I'm pissed there was so much traffic causing me to miss Frozen and only catch the last DS song.

Thanks for pot smoking after, Tom!

i had an amazing time at this show. thanks to everyone who checked us out/got tickets from us/bought a cd/grabbed a sampler and sticker/said hi/enjoyed our set/etc. it was much appreciated. eternal embrace and frozen sounded great, missed tripmynd for the most part while loading out. swallow the sun, insomnium, and katatonia were great and scar symmetry was decent too. got a chance to talk to mattias and freddy from katatonia after the show and they were awesome dudes.



toggletoggle post by the_reverend   at Sep 8,2007 7:21pm
scar symmetry: I tried to give their CDs a chance, but it's not for me. Same with the live set. They played the music really well, but not my bag. A lot of people seemed to dig them, but I was way too much like never soilwork and nu-metal. Sorry dudes. If that guy was in centinex and carnal forge and quit those to do this, I would appreciate someone punching him in the beans. That would be like leaving in flames (circa whoracle) and joining in flame (circa come clarity)

katatonia: would put myself around a 6 in the 1 to 10 scale of katatonia fans. I approach them like I do pink floyd or actually more like opeth damnation. I wait 15-20 minutes for the one part were the singer screams. I vaguely remember their last show here, but for some reason, I remember it being better. This time, I didn't recognize a single song. Last time, I knew 2. Maybe they played bother of the songs I knew once I left? No wait, I knew the song ealier in the set that had the word "fuck" in the chorus. maybe next year, I will be a 7th level katatonia fan. don't bet on it.
