All same setlists, except Bodom did not have an encore, I think due to Black Dahlia taking forever to set up! Full review coming tomorrow, but lemme just say some things: fuck hardcore dancers. :mad: BTBAM was completely bland. Another boring metalcore band; never saw the hype in them. That said, I'd prefer to see them than bands where every song is a breakdown.

Children Of Bodom:

Follow the Reaper
Smile Pretty for the Devil
Silent Night, Bodom Night
Living Dead Beat
Hellhounds on My Trail
Sixpounder
Blooddrunk I did not really like this song
Angels Don't Kill
Children of Decadence -> Chokehold (Cocked 'n Loaded)
Hate Me!
Bed of Razors Probably the best song of the night
In Your Face Extremely fun
Hate Crew Deathroll
Downfall

The Black Dahlia Murder (partial):

What A Horrible Night to Have A Curse
A Vulgar Picture
Statutory Ape
I Worship Only What You Bleed
Everything Went Black

Between The Buried and Me:

Foam Born B: The Decade of Statues The only song I knew by them
All Bodies
Prequel To The Sequel
White Walls Part of this was very good

They might have, I am not a huge fan so I couldn't pick out the songs.

It was bad, but not nearly as bad as some other concerts. It was "Baby's First Metal Show" for a lot of people there.

I remember the first time I seen Ozzy out at Sandstone back in '93 boy that was freakin awesome! If I remember right Filter opened for them and it freaking poured down during there set and everyone was sliding down the hill and scraping against the sidewalk that seperates the the "Lawn" from the "Seats" section. Good Times!

I'd venture to guess BDM, though possibly just all three of them...

BTBAM and Black Dahlia

damn thats fucking lame
at my show BTBAM only had a pit for like a few minutes then died out
but no hardcore dancers
i was getting ready to knock down some hxc dancers during BDM
but suprisingly
there was none at all
the mosh pits for BDM were very active the entire time
but with no hxc dancers

I don't feel like writing up a huge review, so I'll just kind BS it right here:

BTBAM: I thought they were going to be good, but they were mediocre. I guess I was expecting like...I guess maybe Dillinger Escape Plan-esque crazy tempo changes and stuff? But, no, just metalcore. No terribly breakdowns like, say, Unearth or anything like that, but just nothing stood out about them. 6/10

BDM: Always put on a good show and tonight was no different. Their vocalist cracks me up, he always has a huge grin on his face. He's so happy! He ends every song the same way. Music cuts out, "FUCK YEAH!" :D They're fun. 7/10

Bodom: Best band of the night, they were really fun to listen to! The solos sounded fantastic live and that keyboard is awesome! Alexi Laiho is really awesome at what he does and every song, give for "Blooddrunk", was really engaging and powerful. No encores with silly jam songs, but that's okay. Bed of Razors was the highlight. 8/10

The Crowd: A lot of hardcore dancers during BTBAM but they were the "pick up the change" kind. During BTBAM there was a huge lack of devil horns too, which was weird. Everyone did rap hands during the breakdown-esque parts of BTBAM and Black Dahlia for some reason. :eyes: During Black Dahlia, there were less hardcore dancers but they were the fucking most annoying I've ever seen. They would stand on the sides and, like, fucking do this stupid ass move to wait until the pit died down so they could go in. Like...the move was...okay, put your hands out in front of you like you're riding a motorcycle. Doing it? Okay, now act like you're revving the gas, and while doing that, imagine if a gangster was doing it. That's what they were doing. I was so fucking pissed off at them. People picked up on their faggotry and just kept running into them whenever they tried to do anything so they just left after BDM. In fact, about half the people there left after them. But then a bunch came in just for Bodom, so it evened out.

"Blooddrunk I did not really like this song"
Haha, couldn't have said it better myself. Anyone else notice the significant change in the CoB crowd as opposed to earlier years? I found it slightly amusing to observe.

You resurrected a three year old thread just because you disagree with someone? Seems pointless.

BTBAM is pretty boring on CD so can't say they'd be any different in concert, and a really dumb thing is that the guy who organizes Sumer Slaughter asked people on his FaceBook what people would think of a Cannibal Corpse / BTBAM co headlining tour, so mis-matched.

BTBAM bored me on this tour, but I like them now. The Great Misdirect changed my mind on them and that's probably my favorite release of 2009.
