When I bought my ticket at Foufones Electriques, I saw that the ticket had a nice print on it. Great souvenir!
I got in the venue at 8pm. The first band Bucranium was scheduled for 7:30pm. They started at 8pm. I assume they are a local band to Montreal. They had a groovy doom rock sound. By the end of their set they were cooking. Too bad they only had a half an hour. The only song title I remember is Train.
Buffalo Thoery MTL was next. I got the set list I will transpose;
New Song- 1,2,3...
Buffalo Therory MTL
They were very Corrosion-esque. I really liked the guitar tone. I enjoyed Heavy Ride the most. They have their music on bandcamp. Pretty good overall.
During Cauldron's preparation for the set I noticed the guitar player had an Angel Witch shirt. I had a feeling they were going to be a NWOBHM band. I am unfamiliar with their songs but I will post what I thought they played;
Conjure The Mass
Dreams Die Young
Frozen In Fire
Taken By Desire
Summoned To Succumb
End Of Time
I really liked these guys. Autumn Twilight was the second song they played and it was AWESOME! They did a great job!! It sounded so good! Die Hard was really great also!
I am surprised one of the guys didn't wear a Maple Leafs or Agronaut's jersey just to get the fans going!
On came Diamond Head!! They played for 90 minutes!
Play It Loud
I Feel No Pain
To Heaven From Hell
In The Heat Of The Night
Shoot Out The Lights
Give It To Me
Sucking My Love
Prey For Me
Am I Evil
Lightning To The Nations
I liked so many aspects. First, the sound and mix was great! The song selection was good. I liked the songs from 2005 and 2007. The band was having a great time! I am glad I had a chance to see them.
The merch was ok. DH's shirts were $20. But they were black and white shirts with dates and a not so great design on front. DH also had a patch, picks, and a snare head.
With so many choices of shows this month I am glad I chose this show.
