Hatebreed -- Joliet, IL -- January 27th, 2013

The Contortionist opened the show. I've been trying to find their set list for the show, but to no avail. They weren't bad at all; I really thought they were out of place at times being the "clean" choruses (Plus I could barely hear him, and I was 2 people from the front).

Dying Fetus next. Awesome. I was very excited to see these guys; their music is brutal and have been one of my "bands to see live" list for awhile. I honestly expected more from the crowd. I'm forgetting though that DF are a bit "older" and the crowd seemed young-ish. Very good live. Schematics was their best one. Once again though, need the set list for them.

Shadows Fall were A LOT better the second time around. I saw them at Ozzfest 2005 and just got into the band. The lead singer (Brian?) had the long dreads then but kinda walked back and forth (Tinley Park is a big stage though). This time, he got the crowd into it. During the second song, he front flipped from the stage into the crowd and surfed. Pretty much a highlight of the whole night.

Shadows Fall set list (if it's wrong, let me know):
The Light That Blinds
The Idiot Box
Weight of the World
King of Nothing
Still I Rise
The Power of I and I (Best song I thought)
Fire From the Sky
Thoughts Without Words
Divide and Conquer
War (Bob Marley cover)

Hatebreed was last and like always, had a great show. Lots of energy; Jasta is a good stage performer. Lots of surfing and the entire venue was a giant mosh at multiple points of their hour set.

Hatebreed set list:
Came out to the Team America theme song (AMERICA! F&*k Yeah!)
To the Threshold
Put it to the Torch
Tear it Down
Everyone Bleeds Now
In Ashes they Shall Reap
Honor Never Dies
Before Dishonor
Burn the Lies
Empty Promises
Last Breath
A Call for Blood
Hollow Ground
Live For This
As Diehard as They Come
Smash Your Enemies
I Will Be Heard
Destroy Everything

The show was awesome; Mojoes in Joliet is a VERY small venue. Perfect for any metal show.
