Unholy Alliance -- Camden, NJ -- June 15th, 2006
Ok, I finally got around to this...here goes!! Myslef, my brother, and our friend Jamie got off the train at the Tweeter Center at about 5:15. The first band, Thine Eyes Bleed, came on right at 5:30 (i've never seen a show start on time). They were pretty good. I enjoyed them. I don't know their songs though, so I have no clue what they played. Mastodon was next. If you don't like Mastodon, WOW! Mastodon is an amazing breed of new american heavy metal. They always kick ass live. I've seen them a few times, but this time was the best I think. Their setlist was:
March of the Fire Ants
Circle of the Cysquatch
Where Strides the Behemoth
Blood And Thunder
Up next was one of my favorites, Children of Bodom. They had a weird intro like always, I didn't recognize the song though. They kicked off with "Silent Night, Bodom Night". They sounded HORRIBLE!!! Their sound was off and they just didn't play like all the other times I've seen them. I don't know if they were tired from their non-stop touring or if they were just annihilated, but they sounded like shit. The crowd was into them though. Their correct setlist was:
Silent Night, Bodom Night
In Your Face
Angels Don't Kill
Up next was Lamb of God. I'm not the biggest Lamb of God fan, but they're not bad. They were pretty good this night though. Everyone was REALLY into them alot. The songs I know they played were: (in no order)
Laid to Rest
Now You've Got Something to Die For
The Faded Line
Up next was the mighty SLAYER!!!! When they lowered their amps, they were all tied together to make a shape of an inverted cross. Very fucking cool!! When they hit the stage, people went ape shit!! Slayer is one of my favorite bands to see live, and they didn't disapoint me at all!! I just wish they would have played "Black Magic" or "The Final Command". Their setlist was:
South of Heaven
Seasons in the Abyss :rocker:
Dead Skin Mask
Angel of Death
After the show, we had to pay $70 for a cabride home, other than that, the night was great!!! :rocker:
Fantastic write-up, thanks a bunch and glad it rocked!!!!:rocker:
A $70 cab ride? Goddamn! How long was the drive?
I love that Slayer setlist, and the Mastodon one is great too. I guess they thought Hearts Alive would be lost on a Slayer audience though :(

I'm sure it was more of a time restriction thing. If you're in a supporting slot, you want to play as many songs as possible.
Great review Bloodcurse
Slayer is Slayer: always intense and great in concert !
I hope Bodom's get their act togheter before the Montreal gig though

Yeah, but I'd easily trade like three of those for Hearts Alive :D

About 45 minutes. The cab driver was showing us all his speeding tickets and shit. Funny ass Cuban driver!!
