Here's my review from the show tonight.

Sylosis - I'd only listen to 2 of their songs online and it was ok, but man they surprised me live, they made me thing of a progressive (more modern) Death, their bassist even looks like Digiorgio, but they sounded really good, the musicianship was great, one of the best opening bands I've ever seen, I'll definitely check out their album. - 7/10

Hatebreed - I'm not really much of a fan of their music but they were entertaining live, they were pretty much exactly what i expected though. - 7/10

In Flames - They were one of the first 3 metal bands I ever listened to and really liked, so it's been a long time coming that I've wanted to see them, so needless to say i was pretty excited to see them, and they did not disappoint in the slightest, I sometimes hear how Anders has lost his touch and that he just doesn't sound that great anymore, i don't know who thought that because they were nearly flawless, their setlist could have been better but they sound better than they do on CD, I'll definitely go see them again some time, hopefully with a longer set. - 9/10

Lamb Of God - One of the first modern bands I got into, I was pretty excited to see them, especially with all the hype around Randy get in/out of jail earlier this year, so it was probably 10x as intense as it would have been a year ago, Randy is such an incredible vocalist, and the band was great as well, Willie and Chris Adler are unbelievably talented musicians and mesh together perfectly, unfortunately we ended up having to leave during Omerta, but i still had a great time regardless. - 8/10

I was at this show too. Fucking AMAZING! All of the bands were on fire. I only caught half of Sylosis, but they sounded really damn good, I was impressed. I will have to give them a listen. Hatebreed was just nuts. The energy was off the wall, and everyone seemed to know the words all of their songs (I didn't know much from them).

I also have to agree with you on In Flames. All of the reviews I read of this tour said that IF was weak, and brought the energy down. Not the case here whatsoever. People didn't really move the first couple songs, but when Reroute to Remain came on, it got pretty crazy again. I also thought IF sounded "better" than Hatebreed, even though the latter had more energy for sure. I didn't have any problems with their set.

And of course Lamb of God. This was my first time seeing them, and they have become one of my favorites over the past year. Their set did not disappoint in the slightest, as the place almost literally turned into a battleground for the remainder of the night. It was nearly impossible to simply stand still, no matter where you were in the pit. When they played Ruin, it was probably the most I have ever feared for my own safety at a show. Elbows and people were flying everywhere. I crowd surfed too and it was fun! Randy and the rest of the band sounded spot on, and their new production was pretty cool. I have a ton of bruises, and it was totally worth it. One of the 10 best bands I saw all year. This was also probably the best package tour I saw all year too. Amazing show overall.

Sylosis: 8/10
Hatebreed: 8.5/10
In Flames: 8.5/10
Lamb of God: 9.25/10

Btw this was my first time seeing any of these bands.

Yeah i was in the pit for what i saw of LoG, it was insane, i watched In Flames, and i was in the pit for half of Hatebreed.

And I can't remember the last time I head banged that hard for that long, my neck feels like it's gonna snap lol

My experience with this show was more like what you referenced. Having to sit through In Flames after Hatebreed was one of the most painful concert experiences I've ever gone through. Not only did it kill the energy of the crowd, people were just standing there like statues. Other than Marilyn Manson trying to play after Slayer, this would be the 2nd worse band slotting that I've witnessed. To me Sylosis blew In Flames off the stage and is everything In Flames should be. Sylosis are awesome and incredible live.

Maybe it was IF's setlist too. It started off so weak that they lost most of the crowd 2 songs in. I'd rate this show:

Sylosis 8/10
Hatebreed 9/10
In Flames 2/10
LOG 9.5/10 (just because they could have played longer and should open with Straight for the Sun or Hourglass)

I'm guessing you didn't stay for the encore? The set list looks the same as the date I was there and all the others, so I'm assuming the remaining songs were:

Contractor

---------------------

The Passing
In Your Words
Laid To Rest
Redneck
Black Label

I was wondering why the reported setlist was so short.

Sucks for anyone who isn't going to see LOG on this tour. Might be the last time ever :(

That show was nuts! Everyone has been saying In Flames brought the crowd down all tour, but it didn't happen in Orlando. That crowd was hot from the opening minutes of Sylosis, to the end of LOG. I'm pretty sure they were above capacity on the floor/pit when LOG started, you couldn't even move for the first 4-5 songs. AWESOME SHOW!

I'm 24 and even I say this is a great In Flames set. Yes, they are leaving out a lot of great songs, but they are playing a lot of great songs, and the best new songs they have mixed with their best known. I don't see a problem with that at all.

I don't see how my age explains why i enjoyed a band's performance, there were 40+ year old guys there in IF shirts.

And our show must have been different because In Flames were great, Anders sounded incredible, and we actually had a pit going for a while (mainly during Reroute-Fear Is The Weakness and again during Take This Life)

if either of u grew up with colony, jester race, cayman etc, you would not like any of this watered down BS they play nowadays.

I discovered them through Clayman and Whoreacle, their best 2 albums imo, and Jester Race is an awesome album as well, but i still enjoy Reroute To Remain, Come Clarity and A Sense Of Purpose.

Thank you! I saw them at Heavy T.O and at a Gigantour years back. It was painful. At the Gigantour I stopped watching them cause I was bored as shit. Heavy T.O the only decent song I remember them playing was Only For The Weak.. and even then they could have picked much better.

Whoreacle, Soundtrack To your Escape and Clayman were my first 3 IF albums.

So yeah....I know what I'm talking about when I talk.

Sure In Flames has been pretty weak in recent years and the setlist wasn't what I would want to hear, but if you were there, then there is no denying that they sounded great and had the crowd into it from start to finish. I enjoyed their set far more than I thought I would.
