i dont really like righting reviews so ill make it quick . . . .

i got there with a friend at about 5:30, so we were right behind the rail, and the moment bodom came on we grabbed it and both stayed on the rail for the rest of the concert

support was "through the eyes of the dead" and god forbid. TTEOTD absolutely sucked . . . straight-up metalcore with pathetic screaming vocals which sounded a lot like the guy from the black dahlia murder. It didnt even seem like the singer was actually saying anything . . . just screaming. Luckily, God forbid was a lot better, i pleseant suprise since i thought they would be just as boring. Although fairly metalcore, they have wonderful guitar leads and a great stage presence. I especially liked their singer. Most metalcore bands have winy pussy good-dop vocals, but this guys really had a powerful clean voice as well as an amazing scream. It was also nice to see a metal band with some black people in it besides wicked wisdome (drummer and singer are black). i didnt have enough money to buy a cd, but i plan to pick up their newest as soon as i can, since most of their set was from it, and it rocked

bodom, of course, was absolutely amazing. The setlist was shorter that last tour, but much better with some great old favorites. Notice that this time they opened with Are You dead yet? instead of living dead beat. The new cd has actually really grown on me so i was dissapointed they didnt play we're not gonna fall . . . but whatever. My only problem with bodom's preformance was that i could not hear the keyboards very well except during the solos.

anyway . . . the setlist was as follows:

Intro (Theme of Naked Gun)
Are You Dead Yet?
Sixpounder
Needled 24/7
Follow The Reaper
Warheart
Hate Me!
Angels Don't Kill
Towards Dead End
Chokehold
Lake Bodom
In Your Face
Everytime I Die
Hate Crew Deathroll

ENCORES:

Living Dead Beat
Downfall
Outro (Fight For Your Right)

notice the great old songs like lake bodom, warheart, and towards dead end :party:

even though hate crew deathroll is not one of my fav bodom songs, it is my favorite so hear live

btw, my Jaska through a drumstick to my friend, and we both got god forbid signed guitar picks

i took a bunch of great pics with my cell phone, but for some reason only these two would send to my computer . . . note: these were zoomed out all the way, and i have a pretty shitty cell phone, so that's how close we were!!

hmm for some reason you have to click a link . . . o well, check em out, they are great shots for a camera phone!!

Glad you liked God Forbid. I'm gonna try to jog your memory, did they play The End of the World or Crucify Your Beliefs? Those are some of my favorites of them.

I'm sure they played To the Fallen Hero and Antihero, their two biggest hits. The End of the World is likely, it has a video, but I'm not sure about Crucify.

im the friend :tongue: i thought it was an amazing show. right on the rail was much better than over thanksgiving break when i was a few rows back. the setlist wasnt that great on paper, but live it really kicked ass. i definetly know that God Forbid played the End of the World, but the over 3 im not sure about. the lead singer did have an amazing stage presence. This big black guy with dreds and a skull and cross bones tatoo. Part way through their set the drums fucked up and there was about a 4 minute story of how the band went through some life and death experience in a tourbus, meanwhile the guitarist played an awesome solo. I caught one of bodom's drum sticks, but not a whole lot of contact with Alexi. he came to our side of the stage only a few times, and just for a quick solo then he would move back. All in all easily one of the best shows ive been to.
