Awesome show. Baroness were slightly less tight than I had expected (but they have that new guitarist, so whatever) and they were unfortunately sold out of prints, High on Fire who I expected to be bored with were pretty fucking fun, and Opeth were amazing as always. I yelled "HAIL SATAN!" in a moment of silence and Mikael riffed on it for a minute. Fucking funny.

Baroness:
The Birthing
Isak
Rays on Pinion
Red Sky
O' Appalachia
Wanderlust
Grad

High on Fire:
Uh, I don't really know. Probably the same as the other shows. I know they did Death Is This Communion and closed with Devilution.

Opeth:
Heir Apparent
The Grand Conjuration
Serenity Painted Death
Hope Leaves
The Lotus Eater
Bleak
The Night and the Silent Water
Deliverance
Demon of the Fall
----
The Drapery Falls

:confused:

Too many people not knowing/not caring about HOF on this tour, methinks.

Time for another headlining US tour!

Probably not though. :(

If they could break from their 'this is what a High on Fire song sounds like' formula, they might be more entertaining.

I'm a fan of the formula...

Yes, when I went I'd say at least 95% of the people there were there just to see Opeth and didn't know or care about either of the other bands

Going to see this in Raleigh tonight. Haven't been this excited for all the bands on a show in a while.

Pretty sure the same could be said for Opeth, or most any band for that matter.

Maybe. Not saying I hated High on Fire, but it seemed to sound the same. Copy and Paste.

Eh, I think that comes down to lack of familiarity with the material in a live setting. If I actually had prior knowledge of HOF's music, I'd have been able to discern the songs. They were still not as good as Baroness and Opeth though :D.

I'd love to see Opeth some time. I completely forgot they were going to be in Philly up until a week afterwords :tp:

I can say the same for most power metal bands, but its kind of like a baseball player saying that football is boring or vise versa.

Thus my not like the songs. I have no desire to force myself to like the music.
