Dirge Within -- Atlanta, GA -- September 4th, 2011

I'll be brief and straight to the point here. Doors opened at 7, and two local bands opened for Kittie, Dirge Within, and Diamond Plate. I had never even heard of Diamond Plate before, and they were great! Very influenced by your typical thrash bands, and they sounded a lot like Nuclear Assault and Exhorder (at least to me they did). This was my third time seeing Dirge Within, and they never disappoint. Top notch metal core and the only set that I got:

Force Fed Lies
All Lights Fade
As I Walk
Forever The Martyr

Probably my only chance to see them play the entire Absolution EP live. Only 3 songs, but a new album is suppose to be due next year! Only stayed a few songs for Kittie (had a 3 hour drive), and from what I saw they were amazing! Reminded me a lot of Arch Enemy.
