Lamb of God -- San Jose, CA -- April 4th, 2009
God Forbid wasn't terrible, but still a pretty generic metalcore live band. That's all I can say.
I was excited to see Municipal Waste for the first time and they didn't disappoint. They had a quick, high energy set, and they even brought out the Inebriator. It doesn't hurt to be seeing a hardcore/thrash band drunk, either.
I'm guessing their set was the same as previously posted, but this is what I can confirm:
The Thrashin Of The Christ
Headbanger Face Rip
Unleash The Bastards
Bangover (plus MW is gonna fuck you up)
This was my third time seeing Bodom, and I have to give them props for saving party time til after the show tonight since both previous performances were pretty sloppy. What didn't change was their sub par set list. Other than that, a good show. Even though they didn't play Billie Jean this time, after getting a good boo when mentioning they played LA last night, Alexi said that the crowd was much crazier, motherfuckers.
Silent Night, Bodom Night
Hellhounds On My Trail
Living Dead Beat
Angels Don't Kill
Bodom Beach Terror
In Your Face
Suicidal Tendencies is one of the bands that get better every time they come around. I couldn't be delivered much better news than "AILD drops, ST is added". Even though they played a short set, 40 minutes of Suicidal is a hell of a lot better than no Suicidal.
You Can't Bring Me Down
Possessed To Skate
War Inside My Head
Send Me Your Money
Pledge Your Allegiance
Lamb of God has somewhat of a bad rep with the metal police, if you will. Anyone who sees this tour will be convinced otherwise. If anything they are the Slayer of this generation; a little overrated, but always solid and true to their fans. The sound, lighting and stage was great. The set was heavy on newer stuff (isn't it a given on this site?), but I can't complain because there was only one song IMO that really didn't need to be there.
In Your Words
Set To Fail
Walk With Me In Hell
Now You've Got Something To Die For
Blacken The Cursed Sun
Laid to Rest
11/16 Judas Priest
