In Solitude were a fantastic way to open the night. I've been waiting to see these guys for a while. I think I was the only person who laughed when the vocalist said something about "cutting their cocks off" before 'To Her Darkness'. Pretty brutal :lol:. They played a pretty great set for the time allotted, but admittedly I would've loved to have heard 'Demons' or 'Poisoned, Blessed and Burned'. Ah well - perhaps next time!
The Devil's Blood emerged from backstage covered in - guess what - blood :eek:. I was on Selim's side of the stage, and he was yelling and laughing (without a mic) at the crowd for a bit. I couldn't hear what he was saying over the intro music for a bit, but he definitely ended with a rather loud 'HAIL SATAN!' just as the music stopped. They kicked into what was by far the best set of the night. The singer wasn't on stage a lot of the time, but the band played some ridiculously great jams.
Watain was - as always - a pure spectacle. Their torches and (especially) their sheep heads had a pretty awesome practical value this time around too. The show was completely packed, and as with any sold out show, there were douchebags. You know those fat drunk fucks who just sort of push forward continuously throughout the show? Yeah, they got out of the way pretty soon after Watain's stench filled the air (I really want to thank Watain for this). They had some of the best sound I've ever heard at a show before as well! As a sidenote: I couldn't help but wince just slightly whenever they'd hold their hands in the fires on stage for longer periods of time :lol:. Strange fellows.
Behemoth was... Powerful. I really enjoyed watching their performance. To quote Nergal: "It feels fucking GREAT to be alive!". Indeed it does. Their set was great and I have no complaints about it at all, but there's really not much I can say that hasn't already been said. Go see this tour!
I wanted to attend to see Watain so badly but my stepbrother got married last night. That was more important.
i dunno, he's only your stepbrother. it's a toss-up ;-)
Apparently Gerald and Jeff from Blasphemy were at this show.
Glad to see all the positive reviews for TDB. They're the main reason I'm going.

I see the members of Blasphemy at most black/death metal shows in Vancouver. Surprisingly nice guys the one time my friends and I decided to talk to them actually. I saw Blasphemy's vocalist and Erik Danielsson of Watain chatting it up just outside the venue after the show. They looked pretty into whatever they were talking about.

You will be very, very thrilled with your decision to attend.
