This concert got shifted from Firestone to a much smaller club, The Haven just days before the gig probably because the attendance was poor. There were three opening bands which was a bit weird and although I like supporting new acts, I had a lot of studying to do so I wished I'd gotten there two hours later which is when Enfold Darkness got on stage. Here are the setlists(songs may not be in order),

Enfold Darkness

In The Galleries Of Utmost Evil:rocker:
Our Cursed Rapture
The Benefits Of Your Demise
The Sanctuaries:drool:

Enfold Darkness were really good live, much better than I expected them to be. The new vocalist was very energetic and his vocals were pretty much on the money.

Abysmal Dawn

Cease To Comprehend
Programmed To Consume:rocker:
My Own Savior:blaze:
Perpetual Dormancy
Levelling The Plane Of Existence
In Service Of Time
Servants To Their Knees

Abysmal Dawn, for me were the band of the night(for reasons explained later). Their sound was spot-on and they had the crowd going for most of their set too. Quite an enjoyable live act

Obscura

Septuagint :drool:
Vortex Omnivium
The Anticosmic Overload :rocker:
Ocean Gateways :bricks:
Nothing
Universe Momentum
Drum Solo
Incarnated:shred:
Noospheres
Centric Flow

Encore:
Orbital Elements

Well first off, the club fucked up the sound on the vocals because Steffen's vocals weren't audible at all. Also, I don't know if it was the sound system or if they botched some parts of 'The Anticosmic Overload'. I talked to my friend after the gig and even if he was wondering the same thing because generally Obscura are so precise live. Nevertheless their set was great fun. All the songs sounded much faster and heavier live and Steffen is a great front man and constantly kept making references to how he was inspired by the 90s Florida death metal scene.

All things said, it was a pretty awesome evening of some good death metal.

Firestone is not a concert venue anymore, which blows!

‎"First, despite re-branding to a concert venue only two years ago, Firestone Live is officially getting out of the live business and back to its club roots. Club reps tell me that there will be the occasional concert rental but itís back to being a dance club. Since theyíve had continuity problems in many live production aspects, perhaps itís for the best. But, still, I hate to see any reduction in concert spaces." - Local Paper

I was not aware of this. That sucks!

I wonder where the Mayhem concert on Wednesday is then.

It's in Cocoa Beach, which is about 30 minutes closer to me :D

You gonna end up not going?

Yeah man, I'll have to pass on that. Besides I'm not going to have any company even if I somehow conjure a way to go.

Also I forgot to mention that the bands were really in good spirits considering that they had to wait so long to come on and were playing in a club smaller than the live club here in Gainesville(I kid you not).

Abysmal Dawn did the opening riff of 'Spheres of Madness' while doing their sound check while Steffen did the opening riff of 'Symbolic' which obviously sent the crowd ballistic.

kinda thought I was one of the few here who like Enfold Darkness.

Yup, I've followed them for some time now and was really excited that they were playing the FL dates.

Not too much love for them on the boards which is sad because they are really good and were really tight live too, kinda reminded me of Behemoth. They have a new release coming up in 2012 too.

hopefully they get on some tours, cause they're really good.
