Ok, I finally got around to this...here goes!! Myslef, my brother, and our friend Jamie got off the train at the Tweeter Center at about 5:15. The first band, Thine Eyes Bleed, came on right at 5:30 (i've never seen a show start on time). They were pretty good. I enjoyed them. I don't know their songs though, so I have no clue what they played. Mastodon was next. If you don't like Mastodon, WOW! Mastodon is an amazing breed of new american heavy metal. They always kick ass live. I've seen them a few times, but this time was the best I think. Their setlist was:

Iron Tusk
March of the Fire Ants
Circle of the Cysquatch
Where Strides the Behemoth
Mother Puncher
Aqua Dementia
(new song)
Megalodon
Blood And Thunder

Up next was one of my favorites, Children of Bodom. They had a weird intro like always, I didn't recognize the song though. They kicked off with "Silent Night, Bodom Night". They sounded HORRIBLE!!! Their sound was off and they just didn't play like all the other times I've seen them. I don't know if they were tired from their non-stop touring or if they were just annihilated, but they sounded like shit. The crowd was into them though. Their correct setlist was:

Intro
Silent Night, Bodom Night
Needled 24/7
In Your Face
Angels Don't Kill
Living Deadbeat
Hate Me!
Downfall

Up next was Lamb of God. I'm not the biggest Lamb of God fan, but they're not bad. They were pretty good this night though. Everyone was REALLY into them alot. The songs I know they played were: (in no order)

Laid to Rest
Now You've Got Something to Die For
Purify
The Faded Line
Black Label

Up next was the mighty SLAYER!!!! When they lowered their amps, they were all tied together to make a shape of an inverted cross. Very fucking cool!! When they hit the stage, people went ape shit!! Slayer is one of my favorite bands to see live, and they didn't disapoint me at all!! I just wish they would have played "Black Magic" or "The Final Command". Their setlist was:

South of Heaven
Silent Scream
War Ensemble
Blood Red
Cult
Disciple
Mandatory Suicide
Seasons in the Abyss :rocker:
Chemical Warfare
Dead Skin Mask
Hell Awaits
Raining Blood
Antichrist :rocker:
Angel of Death

After the show, we had to pay $70 for a cabride home, other than that, the night was great!!! :rocker:

I love that Slayer setlist, and the Mastodon one is great too. I guess they thought Hearts Alive would be lost on a Slayer audience though :(

I'm sure it was more of a time restriction thing. If you're in a supporting slot, you want to play as many songs as possible.

Yeah, but I'd easily trade like three of those for Hearts Alive :D

Slayer setlist looks amazing! They played a pretty intense setlist when they did that tour with Marilyn Manson as well. And Manson sucked ass for the 20 minutes that I stayed.

But the one thing I am confused about...Lamb of God was one of the biggest hits of Unholy Allience, they played 2nd last right before Slayer, but they only played 5 songs? Really?
