Lamb of God -- Detroit, MI -- December 1st, 2012

The 1st band was called Sylosis. I'd never heard of them before, but they were pretty cool... a solid heavy band. I'd go see them again.

Hellyeah was next. This was my 4th time seeing them. They're definitely a band where the whole is not greater than the sum of their parts. Any band w/ Vinnie Paul on the skins & Chad Gray as the frontman has so much more potential than what Hellyeah puts forth. Nevertheless, they are a fun live band. Check your breain at the door, raise your glass, and get rowdy.

War In Me
Drink Drank Drunk
Cowboy Way
Matter of Time
Band of Brothers

In Flames came up next & were absolutely amazing. I've seen them a ton of times, and they are always hit or miss live, but this set was spot on. They completely stole the show!

Lamb of God headlined. It was cool to see them again. It's been awhile. Their stage show on this tour was fantastic. Cool backdrops, lights & videos. They brought tons of energy. The crowd went NUTS for them. The pit was so full that you couldn't fit another person on the floor even w/ a shoehorn. I was surprised that they didn't play more songs off of their latest CD. That's really what I was hoping for. I've seen them play the songs off of SACRAMENT, ASHES OF THE WAKE, WRATH, and AS THE PALACES BURN a ton of tomes. It was still a great show. Maybe on their next US tour they'll play more newer songs. I can't wait to see em again.
