What's really sad is that if they re-recorded their first three records and marketed them as "brand new", those songs would get plenty of attention at their shows. I just can't believe they have to ignore their best material (IMO) because 90% of their fans don't know it exists.
I think the Clayman songs translate over best, live. In the last few american tours, bar the last, perhaps, they have tried to represent their older stuff... somewhat. In 2009, I got to see about 3-4 Clayman songs, one from Colony, and one from Whoracle. The amount of people that do NOT know about these albums, or atleast "like them" is atonishing. I remember standing in line to get shit signed at Mayhem when they came, and like 3 people I talked to were like "I hope they play The Quiet Place".
Besides a select few, I don't see Jester Race songs transferring over live so great. Maybe Dead God in Me, and Graveland, but not so much for the others.
