Accept
Hung, Drawn, and Quartered
Hellfire
Restless And Wild
Losers And Winners
Stalingrad
Shadow Soldiers
Pandemic
Breaker
Bucket Full Of Hate
Princess Of The Dawn
Up To The Limit
Teutonic Terror
Metal Heart
Fast As A Shark
Balls To The Wall

After reading the other threads I think I have the same complaints about this show as everyone else. Accept had serious sound problems for the first four songs. You could barely hear the guitars over the bass and Mark was buried pretty badly. Luckily once they got the kinks out they sounded excellent. The set was about what I expected, and I was happy to hear Restless and Wild and Princess Of The Dawn, which they skipped the last time I saw them. But aside from the Stalingrad songs I'd already heard all of the others. Hopefully next time they'll drop a few and do, say, Losing More Than You've Ever Had, Ahead of the Pack, and Midnight Mover.

Kreator
Mars Mantra
Phantom Antichrist
From Flood Into Fire
Enemy Of God
Phobia
Hordes Of Chaos (A Necrologue To The Elite)
Civilization Collapse
Voices Of The Dead
Extreme Aggressions
People Of The Lie
Death To The World
Coma Of Souls/Endless Pain
Pleasure To Kill
The Patriarch/Violent Revolution
Betrayer
Flag Of Hate/Tormentor

Again, when Kreator started playing there were some sound issues. Mille was all over the place and the sound in general was just fuzzy. Although the performance was fantastic, I was disappointed in the setlist. Again, aside from the new material, it was all songs I've heard before. If I never hear Phobia, Voices Of The Dead, and Enemy of God again it'll be too soon. And only playing the opening riff from Coma of Souls? Unacceptable. Also Mille looked happy onstage. That was weird.

I really wanted to go to this show, but I had a wedding to go to this night. Based on your review and other show reviews, it seems like Kreator's performance wasn't as great as people hoped for. But still, I am a fan of all three bands and wish I could have seen this show!

It was alright. Maybe 350-400. I thought for sure there would be more.

With the overpriced tickets for the LA date, comments about terrible sound, and the typical setlists I am leaning more and more toward not seeing this tour.

I'd say it's worth it for Accept. And Kreator is still fun, sound issues aside. I just hope they have a new sound guy the next time they come around.

Accept is who I was looking forward to the most, but the tickets are nearly $50, and then there's gas for driving to LA and back. The next date (Anaheim, 10 minutes away from my house) is $15 less. I was planning on going to that show, but then Obituary, who is playing Hollywood the same night, announced that they're only doing material from their first three albums. That takes precedence since it's a special set. I think I can hold out on seeing Accept until they come back again, but I'm still undecided.

I'd go to Obituary with Broken Hope, Decrepit Birth and Jungle Rot instead. It's a better line-up (inb4 butthurt from oldfags) and Obituary are probably better than Kreator or Accept live, though I haven't seen the latter two.

I already have the Obituary ticket. :D My decision was just whether or not to go to both.

Normally I'd say Kreator was the best out of those three, but judging by their performance last night, AND the fact that Obituary is finally listening to the fans and playing only old stuff then I might have to agree with you.

:tp:

I haven't seen Obituary, so I can't comment on who's better or not, but I can tell you that Accept and Kreator are both tough acts to follow.

Quality isn't that great, but holy shit, this is going to be WAY better than seeing Kreator and Accept. :eek:

That sounded awesome, but I never got super into Obituary, so I guess I'm a little biased.

That really sucks to hear about those sound issues, I really hope they get that fixed up by the time they hit LA. Accept's sound guy does a consistently fantastic job from what I've heard and saw a year ago, but Kreator's guy seems to be failing a bit so far.

My friend saw the show in Worcester and said they played Betrayer.

Well this is the Worcester thread... and Betrayer is on the setlist... so your friend is correct!

I won't start a thread for it but just to say I saw them last night in Montreal and it was fucking amazing. For 40 $ 2 bands like that was really a good investment. Well 80$ since I brought my son.

Both bands were so good I don't even know wich one I enjoyed the most. No sound problem for Accept they were fucking loud and cristall clear. I have to admit that it took 2-3 songs for Kreator to sort out the sound and they were not as loud as Accept for some reason.

Swallow The Sun are a good doom band but they should try to bill themselves with bands that fit them better. It was an odd choice of opener imho, the place was really quiet during their set.

Turnout was 700 according to a barmaid that works there so pretty dissapointing, first time I see the upstairs balcony closed for a show at Le Métropolis.

Killer show !



Same setlist with Betrayer in btw

Cheers !

If you mean live, then this is the most incorrect thing you've possibly ever said in your life. I mean, we're all used to you being wrong, but damn...
