Watain -- Poughkeepsie, NY -- May 14th, 2012
In The Casket
This was the 1st of a 5 day mini-tour with Black Anvil that started two days after the Decibel Mag tour wrapped up. Black Anvil were tight and sounded great but I don't have a set list for them, although if i recall correctly, they play 7 songs. The rest of the openers were very unappealing to me.
Watain played as a four-piece with Erik on guitar. This was a small venue that holds about 250 and by the time Watain came on, the place was filled. The club let them do their normal stage setup so nothing was left out. I've seen this band about a dozen times now and this was by far the best they have ever sounded. Highlight of the night, Erik takes a mouthful of blood and bends down at the front of the stage and spits it all into one kid's face. The look on his face was priceless and just about each band member cracked a smile at the same time.
