Eluveitie -- Los Angeles, CA -- November 21st, 2009

Out of the seven bands (a number which was ridiculously high in my opinion) I liked Statius, Kivimetsan Druidi, Alestorm and Eluveitie. Too bad Eluveitie didn't play a longer set.

The venue Ultra Violet Social Club fuckin' sucked. The stage was way too small and the sound guy sucked so bad that even though each band except Eluveitie played more or less 30 minutes, they were taking 30 minutes to set up for every band. No wonder, because the place used to be a strip club and it was the first ever show here. May be it was the same sound guy too. I REALLY hope I don't have to see any more shows at this place. The show started at 7.30 and ended at 2.30 AM.

The Eluveitie frontman Chrisgel even said that they couldn't play their acoustic songs because the stage was too small for the various acoustic instruments they used to record in the studio and play at bigger shows.

Alestorm were very impressive and the pits were brutal. I want to say 'fuck you' to all the stage divers who decided to do it even though the stage was barely big enough for all the band members to stand and play. Druidi were very interesting and Statius were mightily impressive. Hordes Of Hate, Vreid and Belphegor fuckin' sucked.

Before the show I got to meet and interview Chrisgel too. Very cool guy.

Full review, slideshow and interview will be posted soon. Pics here for the moment:

I have only 2 setlists. It would be great if people can post sets of other bands specially Druidi and Statius.

1. Bleeding Salvation
2. Seyn Todt In Schwartz
3. Hells Ambassador
4. Lucifer Incestus
5. Walpurgis Rites
6. Stigma Diabolicum
7. Justine Soaked In Blood
8. Reichswehr In Blood
9. Bondage Goat Zombie

I'm not entirely sure of the Eluveitie set. They might have cut the set short. I was too tired to count the number of songs.
1. Primordial Breath
2. Bloodstained Ground
3. Your Gaulish War
4. Song Of Life
5. Uis Elveti
6. Inis Mona
7. Gray Sublime Archon
8. (Do)minion
9. AnDro
10. The Somber Lay
11. Tegernakô

P.S. I found a huge pirate flag and I remember the guy whom it belongs to. I think he left after Alestorm and forgot his flag. Dude if you post here by any chance, I have your flag.
For all your metal needs, go to
