Opeth -- San Francisco, CA -- October 6th, 2008
 
Great show, ended up running into Matt Pike a few times over the course of the night and got an awesome picture with him. I'd also like to note that a lot of Opeth fans are douchebags because they happen to think that they
are better than everybody else, because they listen to Opeth.

Baroness played an awesome short set to myself and about 2 other excited fans. This was their first show on the tour and 2nd or 3rd with their new guitar player who filled in just fine. Merch was overpriced at 30 for t-shirts, 20 for a red album print and 20 for the first 2 EP's on CD
Baroness set list:
The Birthing
Isak
Rays On Pinion
Red Sky
Wanderlust

A decent number of fans showed up unlike Gigantour, but all of the Opeth fans seemed to be irritated by the band and any fans causing movement. Pike didn't have the same mojo during guitar solos that he did last time we saw them, but everything else was gravy.
High On Fire set list:
Fury Whip
Cometh Down Hessian
Death Is This Communion
Turk
Rumors Of War
Waste Of Tiamat
Devilution

On a better note about their fans, when the lights turned off after the last break before Opeth, I heard the loudest roar of the crowd anywhere this side of the HP Pavilion or the Shoreline. Even in between songs it sounded like they were playing an arena in a space not much bigger than the Fillmore.
The Prog Nation tour must have been their best non-musical move ever, because I heard alot of people mentioning that this show would be their 2nd time seeing Opeth, the first being with DT.
The band was incredibly tight and once the lights got in sync it got to be a pretty good spectacle.
Opeth set list:
Heir Apparent
The Grand Conjuration
Serenity Painted Death
Hope Leaves
The Lotus Eater
Bleak
The Night and the Silent Water
Deliverance
Demon of the Fall
------------
The Drapery Falls

Every set I see posted I get more excited for this show. It'll be strange hearing Baroness do Rays [I]after[/I] The Birthing, but I guess the slow intro wouldn't grab people's attention who don't know them. I love them live, though. High on Fire set looks great for me, seeing as all I own is Death is This Communion, and the other two songs I've heard a few times.
And of course, the Opeth set is great and Opeth is awesome and will slay.

You forgot Bleak!!

TonyD 10-09-2008 09:03 PM

Haha ironic because I thought that was the highlight of the set

How big was the Red Album print? I'm seriously considering buying one.

TonyD 11-13-2008 07:09 PM

It was cool but $20. Its on high quality paper but still...
I would have bought one if it was $10.

"are better than everybody else, because they listen to Opeth."

The whole idea of the creation of Opeth was to create the most intelligent
and satanic riffs, so therefor I do believe these people are right:allan:

I can give that credit to Opeth, but listening to Mozart doesn't make you as brilliant as Mozart. The same goes for Opeth.
Besides, making your music more progressive or "intelligent" doesn't make it better music. No matter how technically challenging or progressive the structure of the song is, there must be some meat to it.

We did (and still do) listen to Mefisto and that was as far as we took it:tongue:

That's a funny way of spelling "Morbid Angel".
