High On Fire -- San Francisco, CA -- September 29th, 2010
 
What a show. Torche was the standout for me, HOF was killer and sounded as good or better than ever, but this is at least the 7th time I've seen them in about 2 and a half years. The good thing is that I've heard [I]at least[/I] one song I haven't heard before every time.

Kylesa wasn't bad but didn't seem on top of their game, it sounded like they were holding their voices back since it was the first night of the tour. Also it wasn't very loud, the drums weren't mic'ed so it was basically at garage band volume. Apparently they're the main hipster band which I don't understand at all, but I definitely saw some fools with Chrome bags and rimmed glasses doing the lazy neck headbang.
Merch included 3-4 shirts at $15-20 and a hoodie, belts, screen prints of the 2 latest albums ($15/30) and a $12 belt.

I was a little skeptical about 3 piece Torche live, but my doubts went out the door. The guitar tone was amazing (this is coming off seeing Sleep a few weeks ago fyi), and the guitarist made good use of effects to fill any gaps. I was a little disappointed not to hear at least Healer and a few other songs I thought would be gimmies. I don't think Tarpit Carnivore is the greatest song but it was an awesome closer, how you say... heavy as fuck?

Charge of the Brown Recluse
Tarpit Carnivore

Somebody fucked up the 2 lousy samples in the whole set, so that The Path was the intro music leading into Turk, which was confusing, then the lead in to Turk played before FFP :wallbang: oh well. Like I said, I'm running out of fingers to count how many times I've seen these guys and they [I]finally[/I] play Blessed Black Wings, and it was everything I expected. Silverback was a big surprise too, and it was way more intense live. Zion and FFP were the other standouts, it's kind of sad that songs like Turk and Tiamat are getting old. And I just noticed, no Devilution :D

shitchyeah. Blessed Black Wings just might be my favorite High on Fire song, and Eyes & Teeth, HD&Q and motherfucking Silverback are beasts.

While the HOF set is sweet, I wish it was longer. Plus I HAVE to see Speedwolf live. I've seen them 4 times and have never heard it...ARRRRRGGGGGGGHHHHHHH!!!!!

Holy shit Silverback:rocker:. I am hopefully going to this show I really,really need to see High On Fire.

Cause they've played it on almost every tour since the song came out.

idrinkwine732 09-30-2010 07:22 PM

Bummed I couldn't make this one. I really want to see Kylesa.

bobbie solo 10-01-2010 11:36 PM

really excited for when this comes to NY. should be a crazy show. Never seen of the bands.

DethMaiden 10-05-2010 11:37 AM

No Grenades or Healer for Torche is a huge bummer.

Natrlhi 10-05-2010 11:40 AM

The Tony,

The mystery song that you posted the link to is "Don't Look Back" - and the opening track is "Hollow Severer".

EDIT: I'll betcha the other new one was the title track from the new album. That song fucking rocks. :fist:

EDIT2:

[QUOTE=mankvill;307324]shitchyeah. Blessed Black Wings just might be my favorite High on Fire song, and Eyes & Teeth, HD&Q and motherfucking Silverback are beasts.[/QUOTE]This. Exactly. Word for fucking word. :fist:

[QUOTE=DethMaiden;308313]No Grenades or Healer for Torche is a huge bummer.[/QUOTE]:agree: Agreed. Also would have been good to see "Speed of the Nail" and / or "Across the Shields". Especially "Shields". Definitely.
