Soilwork -- Louisville, KY -- March 18th, 2009
The opening bands were two local bands, Succumb To Demise & Behind The Beheaded. Succumb To Demise wasn't my type of thing, as the vocals of the singer were very "Job For A Cowboy"-ish...and I'm not a fan at all of that style. Behind The Beheaded had some clean vocals at times, and weren't bad...I don't know either of the bands songs that were played.
Swallow The Sun was the first band I was really wanting to see, and they didn't disappoint. They played what it seems like the same stuff what I've read on other peoples reports, but I didn't get any names other than the last 3.
Don't Fall Asleep (Horror Pt. 1)
Plague Of Butterflies
I tried to get into Warbringer, but I just couldn't, so me and my friend I went to the show with just hung out in the bar area. So, I'm going to assume they played the same as the Kansas City, MO set...so the set is courtesy of "Mankvill".
At The Crack Of Doom
??? (New song)
Darkane was really bad ass, and my buddy got their set list signed by the guitarist and drummer, and a drum stick signed by their drummer as well. But I was pretty impressed with them overall.
Variations of an Eyecrush (Intro)
Impetuous Constant Chaos
Chaos vs. Order
Rape Of Mankind
Soilwork was basically what I expected it to be, totally bad ass, and they were. Hanging out right by the speaker though wasn't a great idea because my head is still killing me and the show ended a quarter after midnight. It sucks because there was a fight between two people during their last song, "Nerve", and the venue had basically no security, so the lead singer and bassist of Soilwork had to try to pry the two dudes apart (along with their Roadies help), and once they got them apart, the singer just walked off stage and the bassist followed, which I'm pretty sure he said "Fuck this", or something along those lines. The rest of the band kinda finished where they were in the song, and that was it. I mean, I'm pretty sure they were close to the end of the song, but to end a show in that way was effing terrible. It'll probably be a long time before Soilwork comes back to Louisville.
