I'm writing a proper review for the Quietus which I'll post when it's live, but this one was a holy-shit kind of night beginning to end. See this fucking band.

Thuja Magus Imperium
Ahrimanic Trance
I Will Lay Down My Bones Among the Rocks and Roots
Prayer of Transformation

I am fairly sure this was the set, if anyone saw them on this tour and got something different let me know. I didn't jot any notes and the show was two nights ago now. What I am 100% certain about is that I Will Lay Down My Bones Among the Rocks and Roots is one of the best single-song live performances I have ever seen and that I'm pretty sure they could have commanded me to rob a bank or some shit and I would have thanks to the trance it had me in. Jesus Christ.

Nice dude. I think I'm gonna be seeing them in a field next friday. So excited.

I've only listened to Two Hunters, though; you think they're gonna change up the set at all?

When I talked to Aaron a few weeks ago it sounded like they were just rehearsing one setlist. It's semi-irrelevant though, your familiarity with the music will not change your appreciation of the show. "Lay Down My Bones" will be the highlight either way. ;)

Cool. I'll see if the editors at The Cynic (student-run paper here) will let me cover the show. I'm already planning to cover The Sword when they come here (and I may get an interview as well, but I have NO idea what to ask).

They canceled their show up here in August. Still pissed about that.

Well, the fucking venue doesn't have a calendar or a way to buy tickets online. But I did just see that Skeletonwitch are playing Oct. 14 and The Devin Townsend Project is playing Oct. 10. Tickets have been purchased. :)

These guys were awesome in Chicago. The only album by them I'm really familiar with is Black Cascade, so I didn't really know anything from the set. Honestly, I didn't even recognize Crystal Ammunition. But they were great. They did have some technical problems, but they dealt with it pretty well. I ended up skipping out a couple minutes early because I'm new to the city and paranoid as hell late at night. Will definitely see them again and check out the rest of their material, though.

I saw these guys in Vancouver back in January. Literally 30 seconds into each song, the band gets SWALLOWED WHOLE in Fog. Pretty great concert IMO.

You sure about that one? I don't think Weedeater is playing any shows with Wolves in the Throne Room on this tour.



I'm really excited about this show. If they stick with that set list I will be more than happy.

saw them open for Neurosis back in December. They absolutely destroyed, if you haven't seen then you are missing out.
