Awesome show. I know people complain about Behemoth's setlist but they really knocked each song out of the park. Great sound, great light show, great stage presence. And they included most of my favorites like Conquer All, Left Hand ov God, and Chant for Eschaton.

Watain also did really well. I'm not super familiar with their music but had always heard they put on a solid live show and they definitely delivered. I was pleasantly surprised, I must say, that they lacked roadkill (and the smell that goes with it) on stage. My friend was talking to the bartender who said they had attempted to bring some in but management at the venue said "Yeah no thanks".

I was not that impressed with Devil's Blood. They were talented musicians but their 10 minute guitar solos were getting on my nerves. And I don't know if she was having an off night or what, but the singer seemed off key for most of the set. The highlight of their set was actually during sound check when one of their guitar players shredded for a few seconds and a heckler in our part of the balcony yelled "Tasty licks, bro!". We were laughing about that the rest of the night.

I only caught the last few songs of In Solitude. But again, not that impressive. I could see how some people would be into them, some okay riffs, etc, but not really my thing.
