Immortal -- Brooklyn, NY -- March 30th, 2010
Originally, I wasn't even going to go to this show. The cost was way too much, and I almost didn't have a way of getting there. Let me tell you, though; if Immortal ever come back around, don't let the price stop you, they are an incredible live band. While the Masonic Temple may not have the best sound system, they still played incredibly.
When I first started to go see shows, I had this feeling of "holy shit, these guys are standing right in front of me. It's not some picture on myspace, or a video on youtube, they're right fucking here." I haven't had that feeling since Slayer in 2006. I didn't honestly think Immortal would be the band that brought that feeling back, but when the Winterdemons took to stage, it was a feeling of pure awe.
Anyway, here's the setlist:
1. All Shall Fall
2. The Rise Of Darkness
4. Sons Of Northern Darkness
6. Hordes To War
7. Norden On Fire
8. Grim And Frostbitten Kingdoms
9. Pure Holocaust
10. Unearthly Kingdom
11. One By One
12. Withstand The Fall Of Time
13. Beyond The North Waves
14. Battles In The North
15. Blashyrkh (Mighty Ravendark)
I don't think they did the "A Sign For The Norse Hordes To Ride/Pure Holocaust" medley at this show; couldn't really tell at that point. I'm pretty sure they just did the song Pure Holocaust. Either way, great show, great set, cannot wait to see them again.
