Full Review w a ton of pics (http://heavymetalcowboysteve.blogspot.com/2013/04/paganfest-america-2013-ensiferum-tyr.html)

about 400 people in attendance I think. Great show, great crowd, kind of lame merch. I got an Ensiferum shirt (with the old man on it).

Yesterday's Saints - got there for their last couple songs. Sounded great, very powerful. Looking forward for when they release their album!

Helsott- Sounded better than their youtube listens that I gave them. Pretty solid. I was unfamiliar with nearly all their songs, tho. They had some messy red and black face paint. Worth looking more into

Trollfest- had bee costumes, about 10 people on the stage. They sounded very messy, but pretty energetic. I knew the crowd would dig 'em, but I was kind of bored during their set, I couldn't really make out much beyond the accordion

Heidevolk- sounded very good as well, but their 2 vocalists seemed ...ineffective. One was supposed to provide clean vocals, but I only heard the harsh vox. So that kind of sucked. Regardless, I thought they sounded very good. I believe I was kind of out of it at that point tho.

Tyr - had a fun set and sounded very good. The guitars and vox could have been a bit higher in the mix, but what can you do. I apparently got pretty close during '...Heathen Hammer...' and snapped a few decent pix.

Ensiferum- Sounded great and the energy they brought was reciprocated. I was in and out of the pit an abnormal amount of times. So much fun! However, their set ended on a strange note, as they played the William Tell Overture, but then after it was over, they bowed and walked off stage kind of abruptly. A rather odd finish to an otherwise extremely enjoyable set. Even so, at that point I was too tired to complain (too much)

Setlists (from previous reports, they seem accurate as far as I can recall, esp Tyr and Einsiferum... Trollfest and Heidevolk I hope are accurate- I don't speak either of those languages and only really can confirm 100% the Jaegermeister song :3 ):

Looks like all of the same sets that I saw. Really enjoyed this show.

As a side note about your Heidevolk comment though... I don't think they use any harsh vocals at all, so that's a weird thing to report :S.

These sets were exactly the same for West Chester, PA on Tuesday except Regin Smiur came before Ramund Hin Unge in Tyr's set. Always awesome seeing both of these bands. And I will be seeing them again on our road trip up to the Massachusetts Metal and Hardcore Fest this Saturday! :rocker: Plus Opeth, Katatonia and Dillinger Escape Plan.. hell yes

Wow, wtf? just re listened to some... and either 1) the sound REALLY sucked for them 2) Was really intoxicated or 3) both

sorry, my reports are usually better

It looks like it says that right now? Did I have it typo'd and a mod corrected it?

Hey thanks for posting these, I was there but I just wanna make a correction to the Tyr setlist, it was Regin then Ramund.
