Kreator -- Washington, DC -- September 5th, 2012
(Update: [URL="http://heavymetalcowboysteve.blogspot.com/2012/09/kreator-howard-theater-september-5th.html"]More detailed Review + photos [/URL])
Got there for like last 4 songs of Swallow the Sun. Accept came on 8:27-9:46. Kreator came on 10:36 and played until midnight (according to a friend). We had to leave at 11:30 to catch metro home, so there are like 30 minutes more of Kreator that I don't know what they played. First night of the tour so some...delays were expected. But it sucks cause of having to miss part of Kreator.
Howard Theatre was very nice. A little more expensive for drinks, but very nice inside w/ 2 screens on each side of the stage, and VERY CLEAN.
Crowd was pretty decent, a little over 100 people. All bands had Shirts that were $20. Kreator and Accept had CDs. Accept had a photo program!!! I could not believe it. I got 2 shirts for friends. Moshing broke out on 'Fast as a Shark' but was a 'polite pit.' This continued for part of 'Balls to the Wall.' The REAL moshing began when Kreator rolled out \m/
Swallow the Sun was on when we got there. Heard like 4 songs from them. No clue as to what they were.
Accept sounded GREAT and they were full of energy. No complaints!
Kreator was good, but a little muddy in the vox. Guitars and drums were damn heavy.
I am (apparently) a huge Accept fan, and I was soaked thru with sweat after their long set :3 Kreator sounded good too, but I was less familiar with their songs. So if anyone has any updates please let me know :3

thanks for the Accept set, now we need to complete that Kreator set with something a little more accurate :)
While I wasn't there, I'm 99% certain Pleasure To Kill and Tormentor were played at this show.
I was there last night as well. Here is the full Kreator set:
Mars Mantra (Recorded intro)
From Flood Into Fire
Enemy of God
Hordes of Chaos (A Necrologue For The Elite)
United in Hate
Voices of the Dead (I'm not 100% certain on this one, I left the floor but I think I heard it)
People of the Lie w/Coma of Souls intro (full Coma of Souls song was not played, only the intro portion)
Death To The World
Pleasure To Kill
Flag of Hate
Kreator was good, but it was a completely underwhelming setlist. I'm waiting for the "all title tracks" tour. Nothing at all from Terrible Certainty was very disappointing. It was also my first time seeing Accept and they were GREAT. I enjoyed them much more than I did Kreator.
Man it's basicly the same set from the 2010 tour with a couple new songs. Glad I'm not going saturday.
"100 people"........ouch....thats all DC could muster for this bill?
I'm going to this show tonight in Philly! Can't wait! I've been an Accept fan for over 25 years. Not too familiar with Kreator but are they really headlining over Accept? Are they really that popular? I might check out a few songs by them but it looks like it may actually be an early night for me.
Well, that sucks. Apparently Accept has something better to do, so they aren't playing the Atlanta date (although they are playing New Orleans the night before and Charlotte the day after...). Basically I'd just be going to see Kreator play some new stuff, because I've heard all those other tunes time and time again.
Thanks for the post.
It was more than 100 people, but it was a disappointing turnout for sure. And as the OP pointed out the show ran late so by the end of Kreator a lot of people had left to catch the metro. I swear I think some people left after Accept as well. It was my first time at the Howard Theater and man that place is nice. It felt like I should be watching opera or something.
I uploaded a couple of videos I took.
Accept - Fast As a Shark/Balls to the Wall:
Kreator - Phantom Antichrist
thanks for the completion of the set for Kreator!
Yeah I mean over 100 people, but not more than 130 I think.
I dunno, some bands draw more than others. I really don't know what to expect for some of these guys :(
