Perfect way to spend my 16th birthday. Through the Eyes of the Dead had dropped off the night before, which was fine by me, and the show was opened by a local prog/thrash band named Hypersolid. Hypersolid, War of Ages, and Soilwork all kicked ass - during Throwdown I went and got shit signed by those three.

To me, this show was just what a show should be (aside from having a shitty headliner). It felt like a party to me, everyone just having fun and rocking out with the bands. There was only 300 people or so from what I saw, but the room was fairly small and it was just a great show. I know a lot of people hate where Soilwork is going these days music-wise, and obviously none of it's on par with stuff like The Chainheart Machine, but I think Sworn To A Great Divide is a fairly solid album. Different, but I like it - so I didn't mind the abundance of new tracks vs. only Bastard Chain off the first three albums as much as I thought I would.
