Thumbs up Dark Tranquillity -- Chicago, IL -- May 21st, 2010

Every band was pretty much perfect, and it was at a small venue with a lot less people then i thought, but i like shows like that so it was awesome, and I'll be back there tonight for Hypocrisy

The local opener was really really good for a local band, but not much more to say then that, i was talking with a few of the guys from the band afterwards and they were pretty cool too.

Mutiny Within was alot better then i thought. I had never heard them before and my friend told me they were power metal, so i was expecting a really crappy show, like a repeat of White Wizzard or something but honestly it was pretty good, and they were all very talented musicians, not to mention they were very energetic and seemed really happy to be there.

Next was Threat Signal, i wasnt too familiar with them either but they were really fuckin good from what i could tell.

DT is by far one of the most amazing live bands (and just bands in general) that there is today and it really showed. Mikael Stanne's energy on stage is insane and thier sound quality was perfect. I have absolutly zero complaints about this show except for the fact that there was some dude that was pretty much humping me when they first came on, so i elbowed him in the gut really fuckin hard and he came up next to me like it didnt even happen, and throughout to whole show he was yelling all the words to all the songs and was yelling for Mikael to touch him, and looking at the setlist and yellin out each song before they played it. Not to mention he had a look on his face like he wanted to have butt sex with the dude oh well. They also had a screen as the backdrop which had trippy shit on it, and when they played Shadow In Our Blood they synced it up with the music video which was really sweet and must have been a bitch to do, another thing proving that they are amazing.

All shirts were $25 and they had no hoodies. They did have a bunch of cds tho and a 8oz. flask for $25 which i really wish i bought...
They were doing a meet and greet after so i got my setlist signed that I snagged after they finished so this is 100% correct.
