Fantastic show! The weather was very shitty but Devin and crew still managed to put on a hilarious and amazing performance! They were playing a Ziltoid radio station that played pop music while they were setting up. It was very funny but sadly no one else in the crowd found it funny. It was your typical prog metal crowd, which is pretty boring. But the venue was packed, anyway. Glad it was at Reggies though.

I watched about 15 minutes of The Ocean. Daimonos, metallicbrian666, 2 other friends of mine and I all got bored and went to White Castle and bummed around. :cool: We got back right after they finished.

As stated before, Devin put on a hell of a show! Aside from no Vampira, I gotta say that this set was amazing! Overall, the hour and a half trek to Chicago from bumfuck nowhere DeKalb was totally worth it.

Seventh Wave, Life, Deadhead, Bad Devil, and Deep Peace were probably my highlights of the night. Color Your World was great as well, and I loved Disruptr. I was pumped to see him pull something from Ki. All the other stuff was great as well, but I had seen it in July with Bodom. It's good to know that he'll always be changing stuff around and pulling out different stuff. Looking forward to shows in the future!

Oh, and after the Ziltoid radio thing before Dev came on, there was a slideshow of hilarious photoshopped pictures of Dev on the big projector above the stage. Hopefully someone recorded it, because you gotta see it for yourself!

You actually drive an hour and a half to every show?

Nope, usually shows are on weekends and I come home every weekend to work. Reggies from my house is about 25 minutes driving. This happened to be on a weekday and there was no way I was making it by train so I drove.

They were like DEP playing Mastodon songs, no thanks

Also, their vocalist sucks. The vocals were a little low in the mix when they first came on so you could tell how weak his shitty fry screams were. Not to mention his awful cleans. And the shitty hour long songs. Fucking Nazis.

I like some DEP and I'd love to see them live if they toured with some actually good bands

I can't stand Mastodon, though.

Yeah, I was attempting sarcasm because of all the hatin' on awesome bands in this thread.

I didn't think the 5FDP thread was a shitstorm either. Pointless, perhaps. A shitstorm... there've been worse.

I can understand this. Precambrian in my opinion was a masterpiece, but they got a new vocalist and all of a sudden the songwriting became really uninteresting and the new albums' songwriting does not even come close to the strength of the songwriting on Precambrian. Everything about that album was just way better so I am assuming they played none of those tracks live? If they are playing all new stuff I could see it being not very fun. Plus, I also agree the new vocalist isn't very good. It's a shame because I loved the Precambrian band/sound so much.

There's so much wrong with this statement I don't even know where to start. Loic was great Sunday and Monday and I'd much rather have a band really into the music than seem completely uninterested.
