Trivium -- Boston, MA -- September 28th, 2013
I got into boston with 3 friends of mine around 345 or so. After consuming our pre-concert meal, we walked to the venue, only to discover that one of my friends had forgotten his ticket in our other friends dorm room. so he had to drive back to the college, while we entered the venue. For those who don't know, Sylosis were supposed to be opening, but they suffered an RV accident and had to drop off. Luckily they are all OK, and none of the members suffered serious injuries
So the first band to play was After the Burial. I had never listened to them before the show, but i was optimistic that they would put on a good show. They got to play for an extra 20 minutes or so , because of Sylosis dropping off. IMO, their set dragged on forever. They did nothing that was overly interesting to me, and when they had started the venue had maybe a few hundred people in it. They werent horrible, but they didnt make a fan out of me.
Set(from setlist.fm, missing one song):
A Wolf Amongst Ravens
Fingers Like Daggers
(New Unreleased Song)
Your Troubles Will Cease and Fortune Will Smile Upon You
Next was the band i was the most excited to see, DevilDriver. As posted below, someone did get hurt during Before the Hangman's Noose. After they played the song, Dez noticed someone laying on the ground, and they stopped for a couple of minutes. They proceeded to play Oath to the Abyss while the guy was still on the ground because Dez thought that he was getting up, and they would give him some walk off music. But after they played that song, Dez announced that they wouldn't play anymore until he got medical help. So after 15 minutes an ambulance came and the guy got taken off the floor. The first thing that Dez said when he came back out was basically that no one in the band wants anyone to get hurt, and that people need to take care of eachother. He also said they werent going to have to cut their set short, which was good to hear because they were sounding really good. So on to their set.
DevilDriver were on last night. I was i bit nervous, because i had heard mixed reviews of Dez' voice, but he was on last night. The whole band sounded really tight. This was my first time seeing them, and when they are up here again i will do my best to make it.

So on a bit of a side note, while waiting for Trivium, some drunk dude came up to me and my friend, and decided we were now his friends. He started off by talking about random shows hes been to, then switched over to how Howard Jones is the best vocalist of all time, and ended with him telling both of us about how to be successful in life. Also my friend and i were both 1 person away from the rail, which is fine in my book. Our newly found friend decided that he wanted to be on rail. so during the first 3 or so songs, he would push this other drunk dude and himself into the people on the rail in an attempt to make them move. Another thing that occurred was the other drunk dude decided that the kid in front of him needed to be choked, so i look over and 13 or so people are stopping the him from choking this random kid and shoving him back into the pit. Gotta love drunk people at metal shows
Despite all of the annoyances of those to individuals, Trivium put on a really good set. Personally, i dont like Throes of Perdition as an opener, but thats just me. The whole band sounded good,except i couldnt hear Paulo's vocals at all which was kind of a bummer. As with DD, if Trivium comes up here again, ill definitely attempt to make it
Throes of perdition
