Amorphis -- Philadelphia, PA -- September 30th, 2008
The evening opened with some pay-to-play local band that, through some stroke of misfortune, played longer that the first touring band, Virgin Black! What an inglorious comment on the Troc's management that actual paying customers were exposed to another unnecessary narcissistic exhibition barely worthy of a high school talent show. Okay...back to the real bands: Virgin Black was spellbinding, albeit, as mentioned above, if for only the three songs they were allowed to play. Then came Samael with a mesmerizing set, their return to the states after the 2003 tour. Finally Amorphis, as listed below:
i of crimson blood
towards and against
sign from the north side
house of sleep
black winter day
Numerous changes in the set list were noted due to the fact that Tomi's voice was supposedly under the weather. Although Niclas announced all the songs, Tomi gave a undeniably worthy performance! Kiitos, guys!
fun show, was wondering why Tomi didn't talk to the crowd at all. and that local band sucked...virginblack and samael each had to cut a song

At my show, Niclas mentioned that Tomi was sick, which I think is why they shortened the set a bit.
But I also got Drowned Maid. :D

Nice...I really wish they would still do Better Unborn, they did that the first couple times I saw them. That song is intense
yes Virgin Black was awesome!
My band had the fortunate opportunity of opening for this tour at Jaxx in Virginia. (No one was cut short either!)
Amorphis played a few different songs, one of which being 'Divinity' instead of 'Perkele'. They also didn't do 'House of Sleep' but played 'Silent Waters.' Tomi spoke between songs at that show and didn't sound too good although his singing/growling were excellent.
I COVER MYSELF, I UNCOVER MYSELF!!!!
