Amon Amarth -- Sayreville, NJ -- April 24th, 2009

Time on the ticket said 6:30. That was actually the time when the doors opened.

7:30 - 8:00 Lazarus AD
8:15 - 8:45 Skeletonwitch
9:00 - 9:45 Goatwhore
10:15 - 11:35 Amon Amarth

I wasn't familiar with any of the bands on the bill. I went with my friend who really likes Amon Amarth. We arrived around 8:10, so we didn't see Lazarus AD. We watched Skeletonwitch and Goatwhore from the bar area. I thought Skeletonwitch were pretty good. Here is what I remember from their set. Obviously I'm missing a few song titles, but the order and number of the songs is correct. I'm pretty sure "Beyond The Permafrost" was played but I don't remember where in the set.

1. ??
2. ??
3. Sacrifice for the Slaughtergod
4. Crushed Beyond Dust
5. Baptized in Flames
6. ??
7. ??
8. Upon Wings of Black
9. ??

Goatwhore did not impress me, at least not as much as Skeletonwitch. And I was starting to get drunk by the time they came on, so I don't have a coherent setlist to report. But I can tell you that they did play "Apocalyptic Havoc" and "Carving Out the Eyes of God".

We moved onto the floor for Amon Amarth. As I mentioned before, I wasn't really familiar with them, but they put on a great show and the crowd was really into it. Thinking about it now, the setlist was probably the same as previously reported, but I can't say for sure. Highlights for me were "Twilight Of The Thunder God", "Runes To My Memory", "Guardians Of Asgaard" and "Cry Of The Black Birds".
