Seems to be pretty similar to the other nights so far. Got a review at all for us? Personally I'm diggin VoM's set and especially Acacia's. Its gonna be a great performance from them Sunday, haters gonna hate :cool:

I still think thats too many new songs for Whitechapel. Only 2 from The Somatic Defilement? That was their best record by far, and probably my favorite deathcore record. I'd like me some Devirginary Studies or Ear to Ear. A New Era was a verrrrrry average deathcore record in my opinion, whereas Wormwood by Acacia was completely amazing, encompassing the perfect amount of groove, speed, and vocals. The more Acacia plays off that, the better.

Personally from what I saw from I Declare War (was in the middle of an interview with TAS when they started) they sounded good. I personally think they are going to get pretty big in the next bit. Their singer is also one scary mother****** on stage.

Veil of Maya sounded tight. Vocals at times were hard to hear, but otherwise awesome.

The Acacia Strain, love'em or hate'em, they rocked the place. It went absolutely mental. Vincent was battling a fever but trooped it out.

Whitechapel was Whitechapel. Anytime i've seen them, they are always on. I ended up interviewing Phil Bozeman and grabbing a bite with him before the show. Super nice dude. Gotta say he does put on quite the "stage voice" inbetween songs though. Compared to what he sounded like in our interview, you would never know it was the shame person. Such a cool dude though.

Sounds awesome! Phil kind of seems like a dick to me for some reason just because of his stage presence. He looks super pissed at humanity 24/7. Glad to hear he's a nice dude. Haven't heard I Declare War yet, so I'm going in with no expectations. Hopefully I enjoy 'em. I'm a huge VoM fan. sucks about the vocals, but I listen to them for the guitar work. TAS sounds badass as usual; I'm probably gonna be one of those people going mental. :punk:

haha. I honestly didn't even recognize Phil. He was in glasses, a hat, and had a beard (shaved before the show started). It was honestly like two completely different people. I had the chance to go and grab something to eat with him (originally we were going to do the interview in the diner we were at) and we just shot the breeze about music, life, growing up in Tennessee, touring, etc. If I had not known what he did/was like onstage beforehand, i would have called you a complete lier if you told me he fronted that band.

With VoM the guitar work was great. Got down to that pretty good. Might have also been where i was with sound. At times the vocals were perfect.

Speaking of which, I'm debating whether Tactical Nuke is the lamest song, or heaviest song I've ever heard. I'm leaning towards heaviest.

yeah was too lazy to do a full review, but IDW was pretty sick, I was wanting to see what the new singer was like, and he delivered. No disappointment for the loss of Jon. VOM was good, but same set as always and theyre way too over with the scene kids for a metal band, so they get annoying, same with Acacia Strain, and I had just seen them twice recently, but good that they played different songs this time around. Whitechapel I must admit is HUGE over. Ppl go apeshit for them and for good reason, their live show is tight. I wouldve as somone said liked to hear more from SD, especially that song in particular, I don't know if Phil avoids it just to give his voice a break, but still theres some brutal songs on that record, the one that got me into them, so they need to add more. Overall a good show, but not the best I've seen of any of the bands. IDW probably won me over, those guys can bring it.

I completely agree. SD was their best record by far. I think they've just been playing it for a while, and now that they actually got new material, want to give everyone a chance to hear the new stuff they worked a while on.

I don't know a whole lot about WC, but I too prefer their first album to their 2nd + 3rd. I don't DISLIKE them, the problem to my ears is that none of them really stick out to me. 4-5 songs from SD do stick out IMO.

Eh, I would say that Posession is pretty unique for Whitechapel in the style it's written. I'd also say the same for Reprogrammed to Hate, especially with the vocals by Chino from Deftones. Other than that, those albums are average. Not horrible, but nothing like SD.
