This is my first post on this site but I just had to after this show. At the gates put on the best show I have ever seen.

Toxic Holocaust i have never heard before this but i will be sure to get there album. Very good, energetic performance.

Now i am not a "thrasher" but Municipal Waste was a super fun band to watch. They had some HUGE circle pits.

Darkest hour is a band I regularly enjoy but were kind of boring live.

sorry I cant give setlists for them because I am here to post At the Gates songs.

At the gates played the perfect setlist. This is the first time I have walked out after a show and not wished I had heard another song that they did not play.

They played (not in the correct order, the first 2 are for sure. Help would be appreciated)
Slaughter of the soul
Terminal Spirit Disease
Raped by the light of Christ
The Swarm
Forever Blind
The Burning Darkness
Under a serpent sun
world of lies
the beautiful wound
Unto others
All Life Ends

Encore (this part is in the correct order) just a breathtaking way to close a set

Blinded by fear
Suicide nation

They did unto others? Damn you! That is my favorite song off of SOTS, and the only song from that album they did not do in NYC or Wistah. Oh well, no complaints

I believe they started at 8 and got done a little after 930

it's such bullshit that the house of blues here starts shows so early, I have no idea why. Chicago does have curfew laws but a show letting out at 9:30? I got there late, missed like half the set. Most bands don't go on til around 9 anyway. Total fucking Bullshit.
