View Full Version : Burning at the Stake -- Boyle Heights, CA -- February 27th, 2010

I arrived at the Blvd. in Boyle Heights around 6:45. The place was supposed to open at 7 and the first band was supposed to go on at 7:30, but everything got pushed back an hour.

The first band Apocalypsis (http://www.myspace.com/apocalypsis), went on at 8:30. They were really melodic but weren't quite my cup of tea. They were all very talented though, and played a really good cover of Fear of the Dark to end their set, despite missing their singer.

The next band was Obscene Carnage (http://www.myspace.com/obscenecarnage). They were fun to watch, weren't anything unique though.

Then the band I went to see played, Burning at the Stake (http://www.myspace.com/burningatthestakeofficial). Despite some technical difficulties with Mike's guitar, they played a really good show. If the crowd participated it would've been a lot more fun, though.

I believe their setlist was something like this:

Mangled Among the Heathens
A Prevalent Desolusion
(New Song)
Nefarious Campaign
Premeditated Trance
Death is a Chance Taken
When You Die Nothing Happens

Next, Arkaik (http://arkaik.net/) performed. They're really awesome, and they're all really talented, especially their drummer and vocalist. They put on a kickass show, but once again, it would've been a lot more fun with some crowd participation.

After their set I had to leave. It was my curfew. :mad:

It sucked because I really wanted to stick around and show some support for Reciprocal and Crematorium.

Overall this was a fun show, because the bands that played were all really fun to watch. I bought an awesome shirt from Crematorium for only $2!

Aww too bad you didn't stick around for Crematorium! I was unable to make the show last night and it pisses me off cause it was the last show for Mark(guitar). I always like to support Dan cause he runs the best part of the metal scene out here, but just couldn't make it last night

I love Crematorium, it pissed me off I couldn't stay for them especially because they don't play too often. And it especially made me mad because I had to leave halfway through their set last time I saw them (Master show) :mad:

And Dan's awesome! Without him the Los Angeles metal scene would just not be the same
