I wont be here, cause I'll be at an Amorphis show.

It's an Amorphis show! :D No regrets. :tongue:

How's this work? I've got a ton of Symphony X and would love to attend.

I pick out a set list in advance and load the songs into a playlist on my computer. At the designated time, all of us meet here, and I "DJ" the set list, posting the title of each song as it happens, inserting just a slight delay so that people can see the post and then put the song on themselves. Then we basically just post stuff about the songs, displaying our excitement, like you would at a real show, just in text form. It sounds kind of nerdy in context but it's really fun to do.

Oh, and the sets I have planned are going to be 45 minutes for Redemption (8-8:45pm EST), and 2 hours for Symphony X (9-11pm EST)

You are in the correct location. I'll dictate the set list in real time, trying to pause a little bit at the beginning of each song to give you guys a little time to put the song on.

This song has the longest lines ever, haha.

Maiden33
09-29-2008, 05:08 PM
Am I falling away from what really matters,
And teetering on the brink of disaster
At a moment in time if we turn the other way
A different path would lead us to another fate

Maiden33
09-29-2008, 05:11 PM
Hey MetalSetlists! Who's ready for an evening of Progressive Metal? Well we're Redemption, and later on we've got Symphony X! We're gonna keep it going now with a track off of the very first Redemption album... this one's part of a much larger piece, this is "Desperation part 2".
3.Desperation Pt. 2

(sorry to those without the first album, this track isn't anywhere on YouTube or anything, otherwise I'd link to it, so just hold on for like 4 and a half minutes if you don't have it)

Maiden33
09-29-2008, 05:12 PM
The book this set of songs is best on is totally worth reading... Stephen King's "Desperation".

Maiden33
09-29-2008, 05:12 PM
Only a boy, only a man
Drawn together in god's plan
In the desert purposes emerge
All are here to love and serve

i misread this for some reason and while prepared for Sym X, just way too early. so, i'll be back, to quote (i believe) JuuKun, for the awesome.

Maiden33
09-29-2008, 05:15 PM
So who's got our newest album, "The Origins of Ruin"? Yeah, it's become a pretty big success for us, so we figure you guys probably want to hear some stuff off of it. This is one of the longer ones, it's called Memory.
4.Memory

DethMaiden

Best song on the album. :fist:

Yeah I'm pretty sure I agree, this song rules.

Maiden33
09-29-2008, 05:20 PM
I am frozen in the moment
Clinging to your memory
And I don't want the ignorance
That a spotless mind would bring
But I'm scared my dying breath may be your name

:light:
The lyrics to the song are really beautiful. I love Nick Van Dyk's lyrics in general and this is among his best.

DethMaiden
09-29-2008, 05:22 PM

Maiden33
09-29-2008, 05:27 PM
Not gonna post the lyrics in parts, I love them all... so here:

So much pain and disillusionment
Everything I once felt sure about
We're all lost if we don't know
It's a game that we are all playing

The motions of all our counterparts
A piece of sinister scheme

The puppet that's broken has reason to smile
They can no longer force him to dance on their strings
Why shrug off the chains? If you wrap them about
You'll be sunk to the bottom and drowning

The clockwork behind their smiles
Wound by hands that were made to harm

Just release yourself
Cause they can't rape the willing
Or take what you have if there's nothing else
Tired of life and filled with despair
And covered with blood from the crosses I bear
But I'm still standing
Should I make myself crawl?

Seems so counter to our nature
Accepting with grace the things we can't change
But when all's said and done and you're wronged and decieved
Then it matters the most what you choose to believe
Should I fight against fate
Or should I just lay down and die?

Solos: Bernie, Nick

The puppet that's broken has reason to smile
But the strings can't contrl you if you walk away
No more tears of disillusionment
I'll be a puppet no longer

The hands that I thought had held me
The clockwork behind their smiles
They'll not have control over me
I'll stand up and leave them behind

Just release yourself
Cause they can't rape the willing
Or take what you have if there's nothing else
Tired of life and filled with despair
And covered with blood from the crosses that I bear
But I'm still standing
Should I make myself crawl?

Just release yourself
From the scars you inflict on yourself
When you're wounded by no one else
Rise above pain, move past my despair
And put down the cross that I've made myself bear
Now I'm still standing
And I'm not gonna crawl

DethMaiden
09-29-2008, 05:31 PM
This is pretty damn good. :)

Maiden33
09-29-2008, 05:31 PM
Here's another Origins track, the other long one now... there's a lot of good and bad out there in this world, and I guess you have to go through life with the hope that in the end, what's best will Fall on You.
6.Fall on You

DethMaiden
09-29-2008, 05:33 PM
Love this one too.

Maiden33
09-29-2008, 05:34 PM

Fair enough. :lol: It is a pretty nice word, I just figured maybe they decided it sounded good so they'd slap it in a song whether they'd heard it used before or not. It's actually a very nice word, I'm proud to call it a part of my vocabulary now. :lol:

There's an emptiness within
And an isolation here
That I never thought I'd feel
With you beside me
There's a coldness to your touch
And there's nothing in my heart
And the life we made is hanging by a thread

How many folks remember the Divine Wings album? Well this next one is one we haven't done live in quite some time, and is one of my personal favorites, this is The Accolade.

Down his chosen road he rides to
save the world

Across the sees through sands of time
Knight of the Templar
A charging steed through lands unkind
A legend forever

Let's do something off of Twilight in Olympus now. I'm sensing it's time to take a bit of a journey. It's time to go beyond this world, and Through the Looking Glass.
13.Through the Looking Glass

09-29-2008, 07:16 PM
Another definite favorite of mine. This is just another example of how awesomely atmospheric SX can be.

Look to the other side, reach the undefined
Curious to what she doesn't know
Step through the empty air, reveal what wasn't there
A fantasy-her looking glass world

:drool: :bowdown: :fist:

09-29-2008, 07:17 PM
Like she's been here before, locked behind the door
Held within the grasp of mystic hands
Everything's so strange, the same but rearranged
Through a bird's eye view-Can it all be true?

And there she stood, in mystery
Searching for the final ring within
A dream, (dream within a dream)

Dream within a dream

"I'm not afraid..."

09-29-2008, 07:22 PM
Scepter in hand-all the numbers so deceiving
The small dreaming child who wears the crown
Watches the pieces falling down

Like knights in the game-her next move is so unsure
'Waken the Queen of Nevermore
Hidden behind the royal doors

White on her right, Red on her left
Talking in riddles, on ears fallen deaf

"Stop with all the lies", all the questions so confusing
Answer the riddles they deny, losing hope, the child cries


The lyrics to this song are quite cleverly written.

And I LOVE how on the word "STOP", the band actually stops... well live anyway.

Maiden33
09-29-2008, 07:24 PM
Escape the dream- like an unwritten book
There at my feet-lies the knight, the queen and the rook

Dream on...
Do you believe...all the things that you're seeing are true?
The start's where the end's leading you
Do you believe...all's as twisted as one would perceive?
Seek the answers...and soon you'll believe

:rocker: :rocker:

To the one that I love, my journey has begun
When our eyes meet once more there will me peace
The taste of your lips the warmth of your touch
again, forever, two souls as one

Seems like forever that my eyes have been denied
Home - I'm dreaming of home
I've been twenty years away from all I ever knew
to return would make my dreams come true

I'm pretty sure this is the best live song ever invented. It combines absolutely every aspect you could want in a show closer.

Dire warnings -
told by the sorceress in white
'false bringers of love' - Sirens
echoing songs from above

Wings flowing -
floating on Sea of Lies
I defy their vision
Elysium swallows my cries

Embracing -
maidens of lust stimulate
and manipulate my senses
I welcome a watery grave

Tied steadfast to the mast
tragedy awaits me
I'm falling victim
betrayed by the sea
