Blackest Of The Black -- Kansas City, MO -- October 31st, 2008

1) Upon Wings of Black
2) East Into The Open Sea
3) Sacrifice for the Slaughtergod
4) Beyond the Permafrost
5) Soul Thrashing Black Sorcery
6) Within My Blood


Winds Of Plague:

1) A Cold Day In Hell
2) Anthems of the Apocalypse
3) Angels of Debauchery
4) Origins and Endings
5) Decimate the Weak
6) The Impaler



I know they played Night Eternal and ended with Full Moon Madness. Probably the same as other dates.


Dimmu Borgir:

Songs I remember:

The Serpentine Offering
Spellbound (By The Devil)
Mourning Palace (ended with this)
Kings Of The Carnival Creation
Progenies Of The Great Apocalypse
The Sacreligious Scorn
and then that one song where Shaggrath sings in a robot voice and counts down in the beginning



I'm almost positive it's the same as the other lists:

1. Wotanís Procession/Skin Carver
2. Twist of Cain
3. Am I Demon
4. Tired of Being Alive
5. Her Black Wings
6. Devilís Plaything
7. Left Hand Black
8. How The Godís Kill
9. Brand New God
10. Satanís Crucifiction
11. Black Mass
12. Lilin
13. Black Angel, White Angel
14. Mother
15. ???
16. She Rides
17. Dirty Black Summer



1. Skeletonwitch was fucking fantastic and Moonspell was the second best band of the day.
2. Winds of Plague was fucking terrible.
3. Dimmu Borgir got kind of boring. I'll take my black metal Dark Funeral style.
4. Danzig is a helluva performer. I really enjoyed him


The whole crew behind the scenes had on corpsepaint. When Winds Of Plague played, they dressed up. The vocalist and one of the guitar players had on corpsepaint, and then it hit me. They were dressed up as black metal people! The vocalist had corpsepaint exactly like Gaahl's and the guitar player was Abbath. I wanna say that the bass player was Maniac, but i'm not sure. The keyboard chick was in a nun costume.

On the other hand, Dimmu did NOT play with corpsepaint! :eek:

And, is it just me, or do black metal guys have REALLY huge foreheads when not wearing their paint? :lol:

Merch purchased:

Skeletonwitch shirt
Skeletonwitch patch
Skeletonwitch sticker
Skeletonwitch button

:rocker: good concert.

I am so glad that KC finally actually gets something cool to come into town on Halloween and really does it get much better than Blackest Of The Black Tour? Thanks to lovely KC road construction I ended up missing Skeletonwitch and Winds Of Plauge. Little bummed about missing SW, didn't really know how a whole lot about WOP. I really enjoyed the Moonspell set, I didn't really know much about them going into it but I really enjoyed them and I thought they got over pretty well w/ the KC crowd which is surprising b/c (as anyone who has seen a show here...) generally the KC crowds aren't the smartest bunch as a whole... even though I have seen a few on this board :) .

3rd time getting to see Dimmu Borgir and I seem to enjoy them a little bit more each time I see them. I really enjoyed getting to see them on a larger stage w/ more lighting and more room to move around. Pretty sure they played the same setlist they did the whole tour. Was glad to finally hear "Puritania" :rocker: To me it seemed like the crowd was almost as much Dimmu as they were Danzig.

First time ever seeing Danzig, pretty stoked. It was kind of a turn off for me w/ all of the rules w/ the no cameras/cell phones... seriously its a metal show since when are there supposed to be rules? Anyway I was a little surprised when Danzig actually came out. I mean he is still absolutely ripped but to me it seemed like he was kind of showing his age a little bit, is it me or does it seem like his face seemed like it was a little more round and the hair kind of thinning? I mean hell he's like 53 and I have all the respect in the world for him though and he can still hit the high notes better than anyone else at his age. And being a huge Prong fan its always nice to see Tommy Victor.

After the show is when it got even more fun for me. I was fourtunate enough to have a guy I went to high school w/ doing merch for Dimmu & Moonspell and I was lucky enough to be able to go backstage after the show. Something that was completely new to me, I never thought of myself as ever being important enough to make it backstage. While walking through the back I got to meet Fernando from Moonspell who was a very nice guy and I also got to meet Silenoz as well and he was making fun of the buddy b/c he had an enturage of 4 guys w/ him backstage :D and I believe I might have also seen Shagrath from a distance. Even scored some free beer out of the deal. 1st time ever backstage and very memorable.

awesome review man.

i couldn't believe how well danzig performed for his age! I had no idea he was 53. Dude looks like he's in his 30s (if you don't count his bald spot ;) )

No problem, I was really hoping that when I was lucky enough to go backstage I wouldn't become stupid fanboy guy... And to be honest the only guy I would have been like that w/ would have been Tommy Victor. I totally would have turned into almost a screaming 12 yr old girl for him and no one else...:D. Yea its hard to believe he is in his 50's but like any body I have seen that is beginning to get up there in age I really don't ever bitch and I'm just greatful that they are still doing what they are good at a high level.

With this many opening bands, what time has Danzig typically been hitting the stage?
