Late Review, been busy.
Dark, Rainy Monday night, went to see KMFDM. They had 2 openers (CHANT, LEGION WITHIN) that I was underwhelmed with. Combined with some attitude and the rain, this did not make me in a good mood for the show. Thankfully KMFDM solved that when they eventually took the stage.
Chant sounded boring to me, and Legion Within had a potentially good frontman, but their songs IMO were also a bit... more mopey and not energetic.
There was a decent crowd there, about a few hundred people I think. KMFDM sounded pretty great, even if the guitars were kind of muffled/buried in the mix until the last few songs where there were some somewhat extended solos.
Style wise: Sasha was wearing a similar if not the same motorcross/ paintball vest, but Lucia was wearing a nice spiky corset and some sort of PVC shorts. And stockings ;3. The Hatebreed looking guitarist was a little less Hatebreed looking, but the Misfits/ Adam D looking one looked the same. I don't recall how the drummer looked, but he sounded fine.
I think some people were complaining about the amount of new stuff in the setlist, but they ARE pushing a new album. I think they played a good set, and enjoyed the new songs for the most part (especially Kunst). The crowd had a manageable pit for nearly every song, which I do not remember last time I saw them.
