Katatonia's first ever show in Philly. Swallow the sun opened the night, pretty sure they played the same set as in Baltimore.

Orphaned Land was next - I liked them, but the keys, scitar, and female vox were from a tape. If they had money to do a Therion style 13 person tour, it would be amazing. In addition to what I'm putting below, there were four songs I didn't know the title of, pretty sure they were from the new album

Birth of the three (opener)
Kiss of Babylon
Ocean land
Sapari
Norra al norra (closer)

Katatonia was great in their first Philly appearance. Their singer, Jonas, is possibly the first fat man in Sweden. Played a solid 1.5 hours, which was nice. Set was:

Day & Shade
Liberation
My Twin
Complicity
Onward to Battle
Longest Year
Soils Song
Omerta
Teargas
Saw You Drown
Idle Blood
Ghost of the Sun
Evidence
July
Criminals
Forsaker
Leaders

Amazing performance from Katatonia. Can't believe douche bags were moshing to Katatonia, including the soft parts. Some people just can't resist the urge to mosh...

I loved being old and being on the balcony, especially at the troc

The moshing did seem a little out of place. I was happy to see the Troc start to fill up for Katatonia. It was pretty empty for Swallow the Sun.

I might just go up there next time for Katatonia. I usually don't mind standing back further, away from moshers at heavier shows, but I didn't think the crowd would be that annoying for Katatonia. Katatonia is one of the bands I want to be up close for, and hear every word perfectly without getting randomly shoved from behind.

I was at the front corner of the balcony, you end up being closer from where I was than most of the people on the floor.

On their facebook page, they just announced a "special surprise" for tonight's show only. I wonder if Akerfeldt is joining them for Murder again?
