Thats a great song, probably my favorite off the album if not one of them.

It seems like they're playing virtually the same set the did the last time they toured the U.S. with Cannibal. :/

CAN ANYONE TELL ME IF AUGURY'S NEW BASSIST DOES FOREST'S PARTS JUSTICE???

I wouldn't doubt it, but they're fucking excellent.

I mean, you got 2 guys from Necrophagist and the current bassist for Pestilence on ONE STAGE MAN

Hell ya man, I can still hope that their sound is better this time. haha

I just really want to hear Noospheres and Orbital Elements

Oh, I forgot. Obscura had a drum solo as well. And it was really good!

I got to the venue a little after seven and there was quite a line out the door. It's been a loooooong time since I've stood in a line to get into the Bottleneck, and even longer since it's been for a metal show. While I was in line, the guys from Elctrikchair ([url]http://www.myspace.com/elctrikchair[/url]) were selling their album in line, and I bought it. Plan to give it a good spin over the next few days, I've been meaning to check them out for a while.

The first band on stage was Hatesphere from Denmark. The guys in this band were so happy to be here in the states on a tour and playing metal. They kept smiling all the time and messing around with the crowd. They were probably most similar to The Black Dahlia Murder in terms of sound, just kind of a straight-up melodic death metal band. A couple good thrashy parts and some not-too-terrible breakdowns and they definitely won the crowd over. They exceeded my expectations a bit and I'd definitely like to see them again.

It took a while for Augury to warm up the crowd musically, but their mainman won over the crowd immediately after they heard the wacky French-Canadian open his mouth: "LET'S GET NAKED!" he screams at the interlude to one of his songs. Stuff like that just made Augury fun to watch, but at times the technicality bordered on WAY over-the-top, and the so-so sound mix didn't help either, but they were still a blast to watch. A couple pits near the end of their set helped solidify their set as a win.

More people than I assumed showed up and were stoked for Germany's Obscura, and it really showed. I even saw a couple people screaming the words! And really: when you have two ex-members of Necrophagist and the current bassist for Pestilence on one stage, you have probably one of the greatest technical death metal shows on the planet in front of you. The technicality of these four guys was just stupid-good. Fretless basses are one of God's greatest gifts to Earth. I am already jonesing for them to be back.

This was my fifth time seeing The Black Dahlia Murder. FIVE TIMES! But also the first time where I paid to see them specifically, not as an opening act (Children of Bodom tour) or solely for one of their opening acts (Hate Eternal), and they just never disappoint. This was really one of the crazier shows I've been to, in terms of the crowd. The people went full steam the entire time, with tons of moshing, circle pits, stage divers, and crowd surfers. The band loved it and encouraged it more and more. They played a great selection of older material and several prime cuts off their latest album. Their new guitarist, Ryan Knight (ex-Arsis) was great as well. And Trevor Strnad has the best vocals for any metalcore/deathcore band ever (except I thinkg TBDM is melodic death metal now). Tons of fun and I'll always be looking forward to them again.

I had a similar experience at this show, and I think Obscura totally took the show away from Black Dahlia.

:fist:

Before "Incarnated", Steffen of Obscura was saying about how his favorite Death albums are Individual Thought Patterns, Symbolic, and The Sound Of Perseverance. And, at least for that one song, they sound almost exactly like what Death would sound like today. Chuck would be proud.

On the 23rd this month will be my EIGHTH time and every time they're spot on, right? its great to see elder misanthropy make its way back into the set and it fucking awesome that they're playing i will return and denounced disgraced.

I would like to take this opportunity to say that BDM has never been death core or metal core. Unhallowed and Miasma had some hardcore influence to them but very little at best. They have since lost all core influence and should be considered a melodic death metal band and should have been considered this for a long time, its just people judge them by the way they look and not by their main musical influences which are all death metal bands.
