Killswitch Engage -- Grand Rapids, MI -- June 16th, 2013
[B]Affiance [/B]opened the show. I'd never heard of them, and they only got a 20-min set, but they were the best of the opening bands IMO.
Next was [B]The Word Alive[/B]. This was my 4th time seeing them. They're decent. They covered "94 Hours" for all the people hoping to hear an As I Lay Dying song at the show. I thought that was cool. They did a really good job w/ that cover as well.

94 Hours (As I Lay Dying cover)
Next was [B]Darkest Hour[/B]. I've seen them 5x now, and as always they were heavy as hell. Good stuff!
[B]Miss May I[/B] came up next. They were OK, but I was anxiously awaiting the headliners.
This was my 1st time seeing [B]Killswitch Engage[/B] since their tour last year w/ Acaro & Shadows Fall. I was really looking forward to hearing the new tunes off of DISARM THE DESCENT. They played my favorite song off of that CD, "All We Have." I LOVE that song. Other highlights for me were "Take This Oath" and "Arms of Sorrow." As always w/ Killswitch Engage, the crowd was singing along all night. This was definitely the longest set I've ever seen them play. I was street teaming at this show, so I went outside after "In Due Time," but I heard the rest of it. Excellent show from Killswitch!

Wow DH>>>all openers on this bill. Also the higlights for you were pre-Jesse stuff? Go listen to Alive or Just Breathing and their first and true KSE self-tilted stuff. That album is flawless and waaay better than anything Howard did with KSE.
Still though, what a nice long ass set.
Getting rid of Holy Diver is the best decision Killswitch has made in terms of their setlists! Good to see a band really embracing their entire catalog and making a long, quality set out of it.

I'm not only insulted they didn't play "Just Barely Breathing", I'm fucking insulted that they didn't end their set with it.
