At The Point of Ignition
The Fatalist
Focus Shift
The Wonders At Your Feet
ThereIn
Final Resistance
The Grandest Accusation
Misery's Crown
Punish My Heaven
Iridium
Shadow In Our Blood
The Lesser Faith
Dream Oblivion
Lost To Apathy
Terminus (Where Death Is Most Alive)

I was disappointed seeing this set a few days ago, but dark tranquillity never disappoints live. The new songs are sooo much better live than on the album, and sound a ton heavier. The fatalist and grandest accusation are perfect live, and shadow in our blood (which i don't really like) was one of the best songs of the night. Only complaint was having punish my heaven in between the two slowest songs of the night, and of course only 1 song from character and damage done.

Also mutiny within was horrible, and I thank the sound guy for making everyones eardrums bleed for most of their set with the insane screeching mic.

What the hell, seems like there's a good chance Edenspring, Lethe, and My Negation aren't going to be played at all this tour

I have never seen Hypocrisy before but DT slays live and I think they are touring with better bands than Hypocrisy. So I would defintley go with Dark Tranquillity.

Since this is only the second set, I'm not going to throw away any hopes of seeing Lethe or Edenspring. I'm just going to hope for Sunday. :)

Threat Signal and Mutiny Within versus Scar Symmetry and Hate? I beg to differ.

Yeah I thought the same thing, Punish My Heaven was full of energy and they buried it in between two shit songs. As pissed as I am at DT for not embracing their past, I have to blame the fans more. I mean seriously, when the played Punish My Heaven, the audience practically died. There was no interest at all. I think they are just playing what their fans want, sadly. I was disgusted with the crowd in general, thinking to myself, you actually favor THIS? DT still put on a good show, but they are not what they used to be, they have not been that for a long time, and I while the new album, I like, I have no hopes of them EVER returning to their former glory. I can still enjoy them, but they have gone from being Gothenburg Style, which I fell in love with, to more of a Death Metal Evergrey, which is still cool, but no where near how great they could be.

Edit: I have to add that it's really cool of them to do the aftershow meet and greets. They came right out within minutes of getting off the stage. No rock star bullshit from them, all really nice guys.

I'd love to here Undo Control live, especially if they could get Nell Sigland to tour with them. She should have plenty of time on her hands once her band breaks up.

:eyes: :hecho: :hecho: Come one those songs aren't fast but they are definitely awesome. I would put them both about PMH too. First half of The Gallery is sort of boring really, the second half is the awesome half (random realization; this is also exactly how I feel about We Are The Void).

Honestly PMH just reminds me of a song that didn't make the cut on The Jester Race. Very 'definitive' stuff for melodeath, but 'definitive' also means 'stuff there's 1000 versions of'. Plenty of (new and old) DT songs I'd rather hear...

i mean if i wanted to hear songs that sound like theyre from the jester race id just go see in flam-oh wait nevermind

I would be completely fine seeing this set actually. Its still Dark Tranquillity. I just wish the tour would have came to Pittsburgh. :(

Hypocrisy, I am missing that show but yeah, Threat Signal fucking blows cock and Hypocrisy is better melodeath band overall IMO.
