Out of the seven bands (a number which was ridiculously high in my opinion) I liked Statius, Kivimetsan Druidi, Alestorm and Eluveitie. Too bad Eluveitie didn't play a longer set.

The venue Ultra Violet Social Club fuckin' sucked. The stage was way too small and the sound guy sucked so bad that even though each band except Eluveitie played more or less 30 minutes, they were taking 30 minutes to set up for every band. No wonder, because the place used to be a strip club and it was the first ever show here. May be it was the same sound guy too. I REALLY hope I don't have to see any more shows at this place. The show started at 7.30 and ended at 2.30 AM.

The Eluveitie frontman Chrisgel even said that they couldn't play their acoustic songs because the stage was too small for the various acoustic instruments they used to record in the studio and play at bigger shows.

Alestorm were very impressive and the pits were brutal. I want to say 'fuck you' to all the stage divers who decided to do it even though the stage was barely big enough for all the band members to stand and play. Druidi were very interesting and Statius were mightily impressive. Hordes Of Hate, Vreid and Belphegor fuckin' sucked.

Before the show I got to meet and interview Chrisgel too. Very cool guy.

Full review, slideshow and interview will be posted soon. Pics here for the moment: http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=133407&id=628232132&l=e5635b19b7

I have only 2 setlists. It would be great if people can post sets of other bands specially Druidi and Statius.

Belphegor:
1. Bleeding Salvation
2. Seyn Todt In Schwartz
3. Hells Ambassador
4. Lucifer Incestus
5. Walpurgis Rites
6. Stigma Diabolicum
7. Justine Soaked In Blood
8. Reichswehr In Blood
9. Bondage Goat Zombie

I'm not entirely sure of the Eluveitie set. They might have cut the set short. I was too tired to count the number of songs.
1. Primordial Breath
2. Bloodstained Ground
3. Your Gaulish War
4. Song Of Life
5. Uis Elveti
6. Inis Mona
7. Gray Sublime Archon
8. (Do)minion
9. AnDro
10. The Somber Lay
11. Tegernakō

P.S. I found a huge pirate flag and I remember the guy whom it belongs to. I think he left after Alestorm and forgot his flag. Dude if you post here by any chance, I have your flag.

i agree about the venue sucking. Hordes of Hates was so terrible i think that's the worst band i've ever seen, then again they're only a local band. Statius was very impressive. Kivimetsan Druidi bored me. my friend and i didn't want to wait at the venue for another 3 hours to wait for Eluveitie so we went to a hotel party my friends were at and decided to came back later. we got back at 12:35 when Eluveitie was supposed to come on at 12:25, and only to find out Belphegor has been playing for a little bit. finally Eluveitie hits the stage at 1ish and alot of the crowd had already left. not suprising because they started really late. Eluveitie was awesome but it felt like i was watching an opening band for the first few songs cause barely anyone was into it. then after awhile the crowd got more into it and there were more pits, crowd surfers, and folk dancing. too bad i missed Alestorm but i did not want to be at the venue for a full 7 hours.

by the way i reaally don't think Eluveitie played Birctom and Omnos because i also wrote the setlist as the show went on. also Slania's Song should be Song of Life.

awesome show though! i was the guy with the blue Wintersun shirt

Thanks man .. I kinda guessed it that they wouldn't have played 13 songs but as I said, I was so tired that I wasn't sure about it. But they would have normally played Birtcom and Omnos if not for the shitty venue and sound guy and the 6 openers.

I would never ever say Belphegor or Vreid sucked. In fact Vreid was the only reason I made the long drive to see the show. The rest were awesome but Vreid was the selling point to travel 250 miles.

Yes they did. Specially Belphegor. There's absolutely nothing good about their music. Pouring 'blood' all over yourself and pretending to be evil doesn't make a band cool unless the music is any good.

Also, during Belphegor's setup, the lights were dimmed and scary/creepy music played, so it was prob 15-20 min of that before they actually went on

Perhaps we should agree to disagree. After all, just because you don't like Belphegor doesn't, by definition, mean that Belphegor's music isn't any good. I'm certain there are plenty of bands that you like (Stryper comes to mind) that I don't think are very good. :D

I'm not really a Stryper fan. I did that show because I got the ticket for free and the magazine wanted me to do the show. But I would take Stryper over Belphegor any day. ANY DAY. I repeat, Belphegor suck. Sorry if my opinion offends you.

Of course your opinion does not offend me. It is, after all, only an opinion. If I had let other people's opinions affect my choice of bands I never would have started listening to metal in the first place. And I know that you, like most, don't like black metal. It certainly isn't for everyone...

But I would take Stryper over Belphegor any day. ANY DAY.

Well thats totally not true. I like GOOD black metal bands. Like Satyricon.

It seems to me Andrew_Metalhead is being a dick about letting ImmortalEmperor disagree kindly, something that is pretty rare on the internet.

Anyways, I love Satyricon and Belphegor each a lot but tons of people, if not more, will say Satyricon absolutely sucks.

When was I a dick? I just expressed my opinion thats all. I post here a lot and I've never been a dick to anyone.

I can see where a band like Belephegor might be an acquired taste but how in all that is unholy can someone say Vreid sucked? Did you just not like their stage presence? Because their music and musicianship is fucking awesome. If anything needed criticism it would be the Weird Al pirate metal fratboy band that call themselves Alestorm. Now that was a fucking snorefest. :2cents:

About Vreid, probably yeah .. the music was pretty decent but the stage presence was not there. I felt a little bored.

since their male lead singer/guitarist had to go home since he was sick, they prob had to change their setlist to accomidate their female singer more
