This was the second show of Lamb of God's fall tour and the second night in Toronto. The band were in top form and sounded great. Randy repeatedly mentioned how great it always is to play in Canada and discussed his love for the Trailer Park Boys. He noted the band had been awarded two gold records in Canada and nowhere else. Hearing a few tracks off Palaces was a welcome change and the crowd seemed to really enjoy it with a great deal of moshing and crowd surfing throughout the evening.

Killswitch Engage had technical difficulties causing them delay in getting on the stage and several pauses during their set. They apologized profusely for the issues and thanked Lamb of God for allowing them to go over their time limit and play the full set. "You Don't Bleed For Me" was a real standout in their set for me - you could feel the band's energy and passion.

Testament sounded solid and got the crowd moving but they had a bunch of on stage props/backgrounds which I have not seen them play with before. Huntress brought good energy as openers but I am not familiar enough with them to give a setlist.

I wish that, for crowd surfers, the guard rail in front of the stage did not lead back into the crowd but straight to the exit.

I would like to see this tour but the LoG and Testament sets are pretty standard. I can't go anyway so just as well I guess.

It's a shame that LOG have really just given up as far as a decent set goes.

I love me some Testament, but they really need to switch up their setlists.

I mean, when you only get the time for seven songs then playing the hits and a few cuts from the album you are supporting is expected. There was some cool stuff from The Gathering thrown in on their the last headline run.

Stop playing 3 Days of Darkness for fuck's sake.



It fit for 2012. It's almost 2014 now.

When I saw them in February, Chuck said something to the effect of, "Well, it looks like we survived 2012... but here's what could have happened. 3 Days in Darkness." :lol:

Lamb of God is saved by the presence of Vigil, I can't even imagine the chaos that causes live.

Would love to hear it.

It's been a while since they've played Vigil. "Back in the day" that was the big "circle pit song."

If I didn't have an accounting exam the next day, I'd probably see the Milwaukee show. Oh well...

Went to the first show on the 22nd at the Kool Haus. I guess we got lucky since KsE didn't have any technical issues that night.

Also, I met Chris Adler at a signing before the show. Be jealous. Or not, I don't care.

taking bets on how many kids at these shows think Testament is ripping off Lamb of God with the intro to Into The Pit

No complaints on the Lamb of God set since I've never seen them before but a little bit dissapointed with the Testament set.

Lamb of God played Purified on the first night of the tour at the Kool Haus. On the second night we got 11th Hour instead.

Testament's setlists make me really glad i saw them on the Demonic tour, since thats the only time I've seen those songs in sets.

Holy geez LOG have been playing almost the same set for 3 years now :tp:
Seeing this in mid November @ Starland in NJ, such a small venue should be fun plus i haven't seen Killswitch since 2004.

Why is everyone bitching about Testament's setlist? They are the support band. They only had time for 7 songs for fuck's sake. On their last headlining tour they through in some cool shit off The Gathering... They do need to drop 3 Days in Darkness. I like it but it doesn't really make sense to play it anymore...

I cant believe Testament are wasting their time on this.

I can't really imagine they are going to win any new fans over with this.

The only people that they will win are new fans. I don't think any current fans of Testament could be seriously happy with the set length or song selection.

I believe they are getting paid, probably not much but I guess they didn't have anything better to do.

They should win some new fans doing this. I just wonder why the decided to do the tour in the first place? Maybe they wanted to play in front of a different audience and take a chance at growing their fan base a bit more. It seems like their touring for Dark Roots did well for them. I doubt they would make more money doing this then they did on their own tour. This may also be Testaments way of endorsing two of the more popular and "newer" metal bands out there today.

saw this tour tonight in NYC. Testament got a fantastic reaction. Crowd was very into them. I'd imagine Testament is getting a few thousand a night (I know a tiny little bit about this stuff, I'd say at least $4000 a night for a band of their stature, it could be way more) for playing in front of 3000 or so people a night.

The sound at Roseland in Manhattan is complete shit, but very good show overall. Stale setlist from LOG, but the crowd isn't exactly looking for deep cuts unfortunately. There are alot of mongoloids that just want to hit somebody and/or get wasted at big metal shows like this, not as many setlist nerds like we are. So LOG keeps it basic sadly most night. KSE didnt exactly shock me either.

LOG's videos were kinda formulaic at times, but looked great and added dimensions on plenty of their material. And the drum/guitar closeups are always appreciated.

That and not everyone has seen Lamb of God a billion times and may have only seen them once every other album cycle, or not at all. At the first Toronto show Randy asked how many people were at their first Lamb of God show, and about half of the crowd raised their hands and cheered. Even for me, this was my first time seeing them since 2009 when they opened for Metallica, so I had no problem hearing the songs off Resolution they were playing, as well as stuff they didn't play in that support slot 4 years ago like the Palaces songs, and Omerta.

Mark Morton's twitter hints at this... he just posted something about "re-learning" a song he hasn't played in a couple of years.
