Well i expected this show to be absolute shit (other than AILD) not really a fan of metalcore but went because my buddy had tickets and i love going to shows. The Tabernacle was a good venue because of size and space with a balcony to sit (where i sat).
War of ages was great and was a huge surprise to me and a lot of people around me. Cancer bats were one of the odd bands on the tour and they were lacking until their cover of Sabotage which made me actually pay attention. The Acacia strain was ok but they seemed like dicks. Architects were the one band i had never heard of and for good reason They played bland metalcore their entire set. Blessthefall was the most disappointing to me even though the crowd loved them, third time seeing them and they get worse and worse every time. BTBAM was a nice surprise even though i cant sit down and listen to their stuff on CD. Underoath did a pretty good job since they fired their former drummer who always whined while he sang on stage. They played a new song and they are improving as a band. and then AILD came on. They rocked the fuckin house, huge circles pits, huge wall of death and almost half of their songs were off the new cd (Which is the best so far IMO). I saw them in TN 2 months ago and they disappointed but they totally made up for it this time around. All in all a better show than i expected.

War of Ages 8.5/10
Cancer Bats 4/10
Acacia Strain 5/10
Architects 2/10
Blessthefall 1/10
Between the Buried and Me 8/10
Underoath 7/10
As i Lay Dying 9.5/10
