Eluveitie -- Millvale, PA -- December 19th, 2012
I'm from the MD/VA/DC area and usually hit up shows there. We made the trip up to Pittsburgh to hit up the closest place where WINTERSUN was stopping on this tour.
We got there kinda late to a line to get in, so we only heard 1 song of Varg. It was not remarkable.
Wintersun sounded GREAT and the crowd was very receptive to Jari and co. Jari was grinning and very grateful. There were several pits and high energy all around
I thought Eluveitie sounded a lot better than when I saw them with Children of Bodom recently. They apparently have gotten very big, or there is nothing to do in PA, because the place was PACKED. close to sold out if not really sold out. The crowd also had a pit on nearly every song, and were singing along to pretty much every song as well.
They sounded great, but I was unable to get a good pic of their hurdy gurdy.
Overall worth it to go up and see Wintersun, but I wish they would come around closer next time X_X:
Note on the Eluveitie set- I know they played the Helvetios album and Inis Mona, and the rest I am pretty sure were the same what they played on other stops.

I noticed a lot of people must have come from out of the area for this show. I'm from Pittsburgh and saw very, very few familiar faces!
This was one of the best concerts I've been to.
Wintersun sounded great live. Really impressed by their live show and passion.
I'm not too sure where you were OP, but I was in the pit area, and moshing/dancing often. I often had girls coming up to me and grabbing my arm to dance during some of Eluveitie's more folky interludes. You were correct in saying that many people came from all over because out of the two women I talked to, one had came from Maryland and another from Virginia.
There were about 3 Wall of Deaths during some of the heavier songs (Meet the Enemy, The Uprising, etc). My favorite song by far was the Siege. That opening riff and Anna's angry death vocals are awesome.
I was the guy that crowd surfed during Tegarnako to be dropped near the front towards the end of the song. I went to the hospital the next morning to find out that my brain was bruised from front to back, and that my brain was bleeding slightly as well. If anyone has video footage of that song id be interested in seeing it.
Totally worth it, however. :rocker:
