Howl -- Chicago, IL -- March 22nd, 2013
The show was free before 9:30, so that was pretty awesome. A bunch of great locals opened the show; Mount Salem (a doomier Royal Thunder with more soaring vocals), Creepy Band (a more novelty version of Ghost) and Jar'd Loose (sludgy metalcore). Howl was just phenomenal. If the new songs live are any indication, then the new album is going to/does kick a tremendous amount of ass. I wish they would have played more from Full of Hell, like You Jackals Beware or Horns of Steel, but I was definitely happy with what I got. My friend got the set list, so this is directly from the set list:
With a Blade
4/17 The Lurking Corpses
5/1 Liege Lord ?
5/2 Nuclear Assault ?
