The Black Dahlia Murder -- Lawrence, KS -- February 8th, 2008
What a way to kick off the 2008 concert season.
Decrepit Birth and 3 Inches of Blood didn't show, and for pretty shitty reasons.
The first band to play was local band Hester Prynne. They were a generic deathcore band, and were nothing special. 4/10
After them were LOCAL band (from Lawrence) The Cast Pattern. They were better. I like to think of them as an old-school hardcore band. Maybe? I don't know. 6/10
I was psyched out of my mind for Hate Eternal. It was unbelievable. I knew every song (except for the last). They fucking played Catacombs. I don't fucking believe it. One of the highlights of my concert-attending career.
Bringer Of Storms
Powers That Be
King Of All Kings
To Know Our Enemys (possibly)
I was actually going to leave after Hate Eternal, but my friends wanted me to stay for The Black Dahlia Murder. I'm glad I did. They put on a very energetic show, and I'll definitely start listening to them now. The crowd was insane, too.
Some of the songs I remember:
When The Last Grave Has Emptied
Statutory Ape (was awesome)
A Vulgar Picture
Everything Went Black
What a Horrible Night to Have a Curse
