Holy fucking shit, Carcass are an awesome live band. Also, heavy metal road trips rule. Got home at 5:30 AM because Cleveland is really far away.

Got to the show while Psycroptic were on. They were tech-death but had hardcore shouting. Not very good. Samael were actually pretty damn cool, and I think all the songs were about worshiping Satan, which was nifty. Suicide Silence are the worst band in the world and I think the label must have forced Carcass to drag them around. And to the so-called hardcore dancers: when Mr. Miyagi is not involved, I really hate karate kids.

Setlist (only a hair different from last fall):

Inpropagation
Buried Dreams
Corporal Jigsore Quandary
Carnal Forge
Empathological Necroticism
Incarnate Solvent Abuse
No Love Lost
Edge of Darkness
This Mortal Coil
Embodiment
Reek of Putrefaction
Keep on Rotting in the Free World
Genital Grinder
Pyosisified (Rotten to the Gore)
Death Certificate
Exhume to Consume
Heartwork

Go see Carcass. Please.

Holy crap, when we last talked I didn't think you were seeing them Saturday! Did you get to meet Jeff and tell him how charming his British accent is? :D

Ha, no, it was supersaturated with metalheads in there, I couldn't have possibly met anyone. But his accent was indeed very charming. :lol:

Really? I thought three songs was plenty, honestly. I like the distribution; I even would have liked a bit more Swansong.

Awesome, but now I feel a little better about missing them this time around, considering its the same setlist.

Well, we actually got Empathological Necroticism which wasn't on the first leg setlists I saw.

Ah. Didnt see that.
Well if I recall we got Ruptured in Purulence first time around, so I guess thats even.
I'm just glad (for me, if I could make a show I'd be a little pissed) they didn't do a totally new set.

I'm thinking of making a 7 hour drive to Kentucky to see this Tuesday. Do you think it would be worth it?

DethMaiden,

Long time reader / first time poster. I dig your comments on all things metal.

I just wanted to say that I was at this show as well, and you're right - it was awesome. I have been going to metal shows for over twenty years, and this show reminded me of one of the shows I would have seen back in the days when the crowd would just lose their freaking minds and totally have a blast (crowd surfers abounded from song one!). I haven't seen a crowd in Cleveland (or any other city for that matter - I love heavy metal road trips as well :rocker:), give as much love to the band as what I saw on Saturday night. I also thought that Carcass returned the love as well - Jeff was chatty and funny, cracking jokes and and interacting with the fans really well. And DAMN were those fools loud! My ears are still ringing a little bit, and it's almost three days later!

As far as the opening acts, I thought they were a mixed bag. I didn't see Abigail Williams, but having heard samples of their work online I don't think they would have really been my cup of tea anyway. I think I liked Psycroptic a little more than you did, although I wouldn't go so far as to call myself a fanboy. They definitely brought the energy, and their stuff was pretty riffalicious - unlike, for example, Suicide Silence. My brother liked them; I didn't. Breakdowns are fine, but if that's all you bring to the party then this particular headbanger is going to get bored pretty quickly. They get an A+ for energy, a B for raw talent, and a D- for curb appeal (no riffs at all, practically). Samael was interesting. They definitely brought the heat in terms of heaviness, but I had mixed feelings about the tracked drums and the keyboards (it's not uncommon for me to feel that way). I normally don't get into the blackened stuff as much as some folks, but these guys kept it interesting, IMHO. FInally, I was really disappointed that Arsis did not show. They were the second reason I was there after Carcass, and I would have loved to see Arsis live (I've missed them on previous tours, but I love their stuff).

Luckily, Carcass brought the heat enough to make up for all of the above uncertainty. Even though the ticket price was jacked up another two bucks from what the web site said (which was in turn three bucks higher the day of the show, as usual), I am still quite satisfied with seeing Carcass put on such a great show for thirty bucks. These "old farts" still have plenty of gas left in the tank - go see this tour if you can!!! :party:

Keep on rotting,
Nat :horns:

Oh, and I do have a couple of minor clarifications to the set list:

First, I believe they played Genital Grinder BEFORE Pyosisified, not after.

Also, did you notice that they played both an intro and an outro for Heartwork? The intro was the beginning of Ruptured In Purulence (I'm kind of pissed they didn't play the whole thing - I love that song! :rocker:), and the outro was the last thirty seconds or so of Carneous Cacoffiny, which they played after taking a brief second to thank the crowd for being so much fun.

I have a video of the that last song (Heartwork, complete with intro and outro) - maybe I'll try to post it on YouTube.

Grind those genitals,
Nat :horns:

Yeah I did notice the intro and outro, awesome shit, and my bad on the order of the Reek songs, I think you're right. I'll fix that.

It was one of the best shows I've been to and certainly the best "extreme metal", if you will (if we consider Opeth un-extreme, that is). Carcass left me a swarming vulgar mass of infected virulency and I paid for the privilege. :D


...and at the Waffle House afterwards, I think I got crepitating bowel erosion. :eyes:

After you got the Crepitating Bowel Erosion, I'll bet you did some Malignant Defecation. :eyes:

I like all their albums I just love Symphonies the most the more the better!

Awesome setlist. I saw them in Hollywood back in September, and my only complaint was that they didn't do Empathological Necroticism, so I'm glad to see that get added. Two questions, first, did they play all of Edge of Darkness? Last time they only did the intro, then went into This Mortal Coil. Second, does anyone know Suffocation's set from their current tour? Those two tours meet up tonight in Tempe, and I'm wondering what to expect from them this time around.
