Testament setlist looks very, very similar to what was played in KC. Perhaps the same.

Thanks for the Anaal Nathrakh set! :party:

Methinks the opening song would be Bellum Omnium Contra Omnes and tbe closing song was more than likely Pandemonic Hyperblast.

edit: i fixed the anaal nathrakh tag for the thread, but i cant delete the old one from my phone.

There was a degree of thrash fans not knowing what was going on with the sound of a volcano on stage, but for the most part it was great.

On stage he said "There's this group at front going "Yeaah!! Anaal Nathrakh!!" and everyone else standing at the back going "We were expecting Testament. What's gone wrong?"

The band were a bit worried about playing that show. They knew they didn't really fit, but apparently Testament asked for them specifically.

I'm in the larger proportion of the fans, to be honest. It was a thrash bill. Everywhere else on the tour Onslaught played that slot and went down a storm. If Onslaught weren't available then they should have been replaced with another thrash band. If it had to be an English band because of logistics then Evile would be my preference if available. I'm sure they could have found someone to appeal to Testament fans.

I found Anaal deadly boring. Every song, even if it started differently with a good riff or rhythm, ended up being the same high-speed monotony. It was like listening to 45-minutes of the same track with occasional pauses for chat.

I am tired of London gigs man!! They always put crap support bands playing for too long resulting in the main act playing a lot less than they usually do on the rest of a tour!! That Anaal whatever were really fucking bad!! Warbringer were ok though.

Testament played only 13 songs!! Ommitting real gems like "Demonic Refusal", "Electric Crown" and "Alone In The Dark" among others that have been played on this tour. The Lagacy was on the setlist and they didn't play it!!!

Here's the setlist from Cincinnati, USA, so you see an example of how we're getting screwed here in London!!!

The Preacher
Practice What You Preach
The New Order
Over the Wall
Sins Of Omission
More Than Meets the Eye
The Persecuted Won't Forget
Demonic Refusal
True Believer
Do or Die
The Legacy
Into the Pit
Souls of Black
Electric Crown
Disciples of the Watch
D.N.R. (Do Not Resuscitate)
3 Days in Darkness
The Formation Of Damnation

That's 18 songs!!! We only got 13 in London!!!

This has to stop!!! London promoters, YOU SUCK!!!!!

There would have been photos to go with that, but thanks to the Empire's retarted rules I would have had to miss songs to do it, so screw that.

Andy, Johan got photos of a couple of the Anaal Nathrakh setlists on stage and read as follows:

In the Constellation of the Black Widow
I Am the Wrath of Gods and the Desolation of the Earth
Bellum Omnium Contra Omnes
The Final Absolution
Submission Is For the Weak
More of Fire Than Blood
Der Hölle Rache Kocht in Meinem Herzen
The Lucifer Effect
The Destroying Angel
Do Not Speak
Pandemonic Hyperblast

Got to be honest, even owning all the albums I had difficulty following it as it was such a wall of noise but seems to be correct.

I'm in complete agreement with you on Testament's set also.

Not quite sure about that order. Definitely agree with 'Der Holle...', but they definitely played something else before he announced the title track of the new album. Unless he was saying "that was In The Constellation of The Black Widow"...? Perhaps they switched 'In the Constellation...' and 'I am The Wrath...'?

And I'd definitely say they cut something from that printed setlist.

I was looking at videos online and it looks like they opened with In The Constellation.
