You sure you're not missing a song in the encore? no quietous? or mother of light? just the two songs?

Yes, I'm sure. I was a bit surprised myself, but it was in fact only a 2-song encore last night. Might have had something to do with the opening bands, because we had 2 locals. Scar Symmetry's set was also one song shorter than the others I've seen.

Remove Frequencyshifter from Scar Symmetry's set and it'll be correct. They did not play that. I have a copy of the setlist and I was right in front of Per so I would've remembered :) Great show nonetheless! :rocker:

Really? I could have sworn I remembered singing along to it, although I was a bit inebriated haha. Guess I just had my wires crossed because I was expecting them to play it. Thanks!

Well that's irritating both bands had to cut songs.

This is the setlist I got from the stage. Songs in bold were crossed off and were not played. So it looks like they cut 4 songs from the set they were supposed to play! :mad:

That sucks. They had to cut 4 songs from their set the least time they played in Tempe in Feb. What really frustrates me though is that they don't play some of their best songs live, like Holographic Universe, Deus Ex Machina, The Kaleidoscopic God, Eleventh Sphere... honestly I'd rather hear ANYTHING off of the Holographic Universe album other than Morphogenesis. It's one of the most generic songs they've ever recorded, totally radio single material. Doesn't really represent what they're capable of.

That's funny you mention those songs. I had a chance to talk to all of the guys after the Hypocrisy show and the first thing I said was that they need to play Holographic Universe and The Kaleidoscopic God more. If I remember correctly Lars said that they opened the first show he ever did with Holographic Universe. I think he said it was in Portugal or something.
