I may be a little off in the order, but I'm 85% sure this is right.

1. Hall Of The Dead
2. 20 Minutes/40 Years
3. Dulcinea
4. Threshold of Transformation
5. Ghost Key
6. In Fiction
7. Hand of the Host
8. Carry

9. Celestial

Very good performance, though to be honest they could have dropped one of the Wavering Radiant songs, as I felt the emphasis on that album was a little bit too high. And they should have played False Light 'cause I just really wanna hear that song live. Very simplistic show too, no banners or lights really, just music.

Pelican were really great as well, and I have what I think is their setlist here. I would love to see these guys play a headlining show.

1. Bliss In Concrete
2. Embedding The Moss
3. Ephemeral
4. (something... it may have been Australasia)
5. Geometry of Murder (Earth Cover)
6. The Woods

Not familiar enough with Tombs to get their setlist, but they were pretty good as well.

Hall of the Dead, Dulcinea = :rocker:

The rest will be awesome but those two are gonna be highlights I think. Also, let's get some more ITAOT material. :hmm:

Hall Of The Dead is so fucking good live. I must say though, Celestial may have been the best song of the night. It came out so fucking well.

Celestial!? The rest of the set is either new album stuff or songs I've already seen them do, I dunno if it's worth the drive and tickets especially cuz there's a few other shows around the same couple weeks that are more important to me. This is probably the last time they're gonna play here for a while though I think, read something about them taking a long/possibly forever break after this touring cycle. Thanks for the writeup.

Long, possible forever break? Where did you hear that? I hope not, they're one of my favorite bands.

Im seeing this show this saturday. Will be my third time seeing them. They're always great live, one of the heaviest bands I've seen. They always play pretty much the whole album that they're supporting, plus 2 or 3 older tunes. They did that on the ITAOT and Panopticon touring cycles. I'd like to see So Did We back in the setlist again.

I saw Pelican headline a couple years ago and thought they were pretty boring actually. Just made me want to listen to Red Sparrowes who do the same thing only about 10000x times better lol. Maybe they'll be better this time. Thanks for the review!

Saw this tour when I was on vacation in Orlando/Tampa.

It was LOUD as hell but Isis were amazing. The new album is becoming one of my favorites of the year so I'm glad they played a bunch of new shit. I thought they were only playing for an hour but I got to my cousin's house at 2:30 am. Haha.

Pelican bored me but I liked 2 songs.

Tombs are way better live. The drummer is intense.
