Kreator -- New York, NY -- March 6th, 2010

Awesome show. Got at the venue (Nokia Theater) around 4 or so. My friend and I bought our tickets off some guy for 20 bucks each (saved 10 bucks or so). Met up with some friends, talked and whatnot until they started letting people in, at which point I started running for the rail. Got a real nice spot on it. Lazarus A.D. were up first. I was pretty excited because I'm a fan of theirs. I'm not 100% positive about their set.

Lazarus A.D.
Absolute Power
Last Breath
Thou Shall Not Fear

Next up were Evile. I'm not really a fan of theirs, but I was somewhat looking forward to them because I've known of them for a little while now and it was their first US tour/NYC show. All in all they were good, not as good as Lazarus though, IMO. They got a great crowd response though.

Evile (copied and pasted from another thread)
Infected Nation
We Who Are About to Die
Time No More
Bathe in Blood
Enter the Grave

Next was Nachtmystium. Just from their soundcheck alone I knew we were in for some shitty music. These guys probably had the worst guitar tone/bass tone/overall sound I have ever heard. So boring, I almost fell asleep on the rail. Obviously I don't know their set, and I'm not going to bother to copy and paste it either because they fucking sucked ass.

Next up was Voivod. Let me start up by saying these guys are out of their fucking minds. Snake was doing all sorts of wierd dances and Blacky was just all over the place. I not really a fan of theirs, so I don't know their set other than they opened with Voivod and also played Tornado. Overall a really enjoyable performance from Canada's prog-thrash legends.

Now the moment we've all been waiting for, back for the second time on the Hordes of Chaos tour, the mighty KREATOR. This would be my second time seeing them, the first being the last time they came to NYC with Exodus. Last time around Exodus's set completely wore me out, so for most of Kreator's set I was sitting down. But this time, I was fucking ready. The smoke filled up the stage,The Choir of the Damned Intro was playing, and the band came out and started blasting The Pestilence. The crowd was going batshit crazy for pretty much their whole set, especially on the rail. It was probably one of the most, if not the most brutal set I ever experienced. Fucking incredible. Some of the highlights for me were Hordes of Chaos, Enemy of God, Impossible Brutality, and the always epic Flag of Hate/Tormentor. If anyone reading this is thinking about going to see Kreator, DO IT.

Choir of the Damned (short)
The Pestilence
Hordes of Chaos
Enemy of God
Impossible Brutality
Endless Pain
Pleasure to Kill
Terrible Certainty
Extreme Aggression
Coma of Souls
Servant in Heaven – King in Hell
The Patriarch/Violent Revolution
Demon Prince
When the Sun Burns Red
Flag of Hate/Tormentor

Amazing show. Sorry for the long post, I like to go in depth.
