Setlist:
This was a headlining (sold out) offdate in marseille, pretty crazy night. I had to fight to hold on to my barrier spot right in front of Robb.

Imperium
Ten ton hammer
Beautiful morning
Elegy (first time live)
Bulldozer
Slanderous
Seasons Wither :rocker:
The burning red :light:
Halo
Struck a Nerve :horns:

Encore:

Descend the shades of night
Davidian

Also, this was MH's second headlining show in over a year so they played somewhat of a different set. This was the very first time Elegy was played live.
They hadn't played here in Marseille in over 12 years so people were glad to have them back.
This was the first time I'd seen them headline.Last time I saw them was opening for Metallica in Paris.

Damn dude, you got Slanderous and Ten Ton Hammer? I can't lie, I'm really jealous. Slanderous is one of my favorite tracks off The Blackening, and they haven't played Ten Ton Hammer for so long!

Hope they come here and do a headlining tour soon.

good set.there should be a little more from the blackening. and i thought they band would just act like the burning red and supercharger never exsisted.

I saw them on mayhem last year it was great right up front and the feild was a mosh pit the whole time. best band that was on mayhem08

It is really nice to see them finally change it up a little. I figure by this point anyone that has got to see MH on the "Blackening" tour cycle has pretty much heard them do a bunch of songs of the Blackening so atleast they are doing stuff off Supercharger & The Burning Red even though those were far from the best albums atleast it's a little something different. Plus they probably enjoy playing something a little different at this point anyway.

Hm. This wasn't what I thought they had in mind when they said they were going to pull out a bunch of gems.

Yeah I was hoping they could at least squeeze in 'Old', 'Block' or 'None but my own'.
Anyway Seasons wither and struck a nerve totally kicked ass

Exactly. If I had my way it would be all Burn My Eyes and Blackening material, with Imperium squeezed in.

I love Imperium but i'm surprised they're still not opening with Clenching The Fists of Disscent. When i saw them on Mayhem fest last year it kicked fucking ass as the opener. Even though The Blackening has been out for two years i don't think they've done a headling US tour for it yet have they? But if they do that it'll still be another 2 or 3 years before a new album:mad:

I hope they do one last US headlining tour before they start writing new stuff. I would like to see them throw in Wolves. I don't think they've played that live ever. Badass song!

I think they're doing a one-off headliner in Spokane tomorrow. And the Mayhem festival starting July 10th is supposed to be their headlining tour this year I guess.

It has never been played live and I hope it stays that way because I hate that song.

That's Ok i thought that maybe they changed the lineup or something. Adding them would be cool though. With the exception of Slayer and Killswitch I don't think this years mayhem fest has much worth seeing

Sorry i don't like any of those bands. Even though Cannibal Corpse is from my hometown is just never got into them or death metal at all. There were just more bands on last years bill i liked. I think they took a big step down in their selections this year. I mean are people really intrested in seeing Manson anymore?

yeah. I'm not even a killswitch fan. And as I'll see Slayer with Megadeth and Machine Head anyway, I'm still looking to sell my Mayhem fest ticket :eyes:

Good to see the setlist change a bit. For a while they were basically playing this:

Clenching the Fists of Dissent
Imperium
some combination of of Old/Ten Ton Hammer/Hallowed be thy Name
Aesthetics of Hate
Halo
Davidian


Luckily I saw them on Mayhem last year with that sort of setlist, so if they do a North American tour (which they've already said they're going to do in late 2009), that they mix up the setlist.
