It's kind of surprising not to see at least one song each from their first three albums (not counting Lunar Strain) in regular rotation. Something like:
JESTER RACE: Artifacts of the Black Rain
WHORACLE: Jotun, Gyroscope or Episode 666
COLONY: Embody the Invisible, Scorn or Colony
Anders has said in tons of interviews, the NA crowds don't respond to as much pre-Reroute to Remain. Just a fact. It's not a matter of catering to anybody. Anything from Jester Race will get nothing but silence from the crowd. Can't cater to 2%.
