Review:

I got to Peabody's around 7:00, and one of the local bands were still playing. Shitty crabcore, really, with very mediocre singing. I hung out and talked to my friends, since I went with a couple guys I haven't seen in over a year, and we were making fun of the kids in the crowd. I was sporting a Cattle Decap shirt, my one friend had a Lamb of God shirt, and my other friend (who was the running back/linebacker for our old highschool football team) had a plain black cutoff shirt and an America bandanna. No flat-brims amongst us.

Anyway, Peabody's was packed. Most people I've ever seen there. Red Fang came on next, and they were frickin' awesome! They were so, so, so out of place and all the kiddies were bored out of their minds, but I was banging my head the whole time. You know them, but they play solid southern stoner-ish rock/metal. Reminded me at times of Down, Motorhead, and Weedeater.

Next, All Shall Perish took the stage. I absolutely love them on record, and I don't know why people have been saying "OOH ASP SUCKS LIVE" here, since they were very spot-on, and had probably the best pits of the night. People just went crazy for them, and there were a constant stream of stagedivers. I, personally, had a nice frontflip dive in "No Business..." right before that epic breakdown. I wish someone filmed that, since I was very proud of the timing of it if I might say so myself. I kind of wish I heard more Francesco, since his guitar was tuned down a bit, but it was still awesome. Ben jumped out into the crowd at the end of Eradication, and Hernan did a great job of getting the crowd moving and diving.

After a nice long water break, we positioned ourselves for Unearth. I wasn't really sure what to expect. I mean, they've been one of my favorite metalcore bands since I was in middle school, and The Oncoming Storm is one of my favorite metalcore records of all time, so I had some high expectations. As soon as they ripped into the opening sweeps of My Will Be Done, I just rushed the stage so I could get right in Trevor's face the whole set. They were absolutely incredible. They sound twice as good live, in my opinion. I had some doubts since I wasn't a huge fan of the new record, but now I'm gonna have to give it a second chance since it was fucking HEAVY live.

About 3/4 of the way through the set, the girl up against the stage right in front of me turns around, and points at her head in question. I look, and she had a gash about an inch big, pouring blood profusely out of her head. Disgusting! I just pointed towards the door, and some other guy escorted her out. It looked painful as hell. But it was kind of cool, since it allowed me to get right up on the stage, front and center, directly in Trevor's face! There were a constant stream of stagedivers/crowdsurfers for Unearth, ESPECIALLY for the old songs. And holy shit, that set... SO many songs from The Oncoming Storm! I had no idea they'd play Zombie Autopilot. That made my week hearing that song...

Other things for them: Trevor shoved the mic in my face multiple times, notably during The Great Dividers during the, "THERE WERE BETTER ONES", "GOD SENT POLITICS", "TAKE OVER THE WORLD/DIVIDE OUR HOME", which was a dream come true! And for the "DOES HATE MEAN FREEDOM?!", he just put the mic up in the air, and everybody screamed it, moreso than any part Suicide Silence played. Buz was spot-on live, jumping around and climbing up the amps and drumset while shredding and sweeping simultaneously. Ken was also sporting a Terror shirt , and had a giant Penis drawn on his arm, and "I LIKE DICK" drawn on his other arm. And last but not least, Unearth's breakdowns are incredible live. Better than any metalcore or deathcore band I've seen. It's so heavy; especially in a small, hole in the wall venue when you're up front, only inches away from the band. I ALSO GOT THE PHYSICAL SETLIST; I'll post a pic below.

Despite an abundance of scenies in the crowd, and a lot of jerks, it was an incredible performance. AND BIG NEWS: Trevor told everyone that they are 100% gonna do a headlining tour this fall/winter!

Setlist (I had to scream out, GIVE ME THAT SETLIST, IT'S TOO LONG TO EXPLAIN BUT I NEED IT MORE THAN ANY OTHER GUY HERE!):

My Suicide Silence review:
So Suicide Silence co-headlined this with Unearth, and played last, but I like Unearth more so I made this an Unearth-centered review. But after Unearth, Suicide Silence took the stage. To be honest, it was really good. But nothing more. I wasn't blown away by them or anything. Not terrible, though. Let me explain.

First of all, I actually think they had the weakest pits of the night, which surprised me, since I thought all the kiddies came to see them. I think it was due to the fact that it was about 90 degrees in there, and everybody was tired as hell. They had a lot of good "jump up and down" moments, which were fun. And Mitch had a pretty decent stage presence for the band, and was good at getting the crowd motivated. He kept calling for circle pits, though, which I have no problem with, but it got to a point where everybody was just too tired and hot to do them, and he was getting pissed and calling us pussies.

Vocally, I think his highs suffer live. They sound a little forced. And, there were many times where he just left out the vocals to certain lines, and I don't know why. For example, my favorite part of Smoke is when he does that wicked scream for, "BUUUURN IT DOOOOOOOOOOOOOWN", which he just left out live. Little stuff like that, and it annoyed me. The new songs sounded pretty decent live, and as much as I hate "Fuck Everything", since the last 2 minutes drag on forever, it made more sense in a live context. Cheesy, and a typical deathcore cop-out, but fun nonetheless. Mitch also managed to get a good wall of death during Disengage, which was kind of fun since the wall was about the size of Peabody's itself.

They also brought out cameras for No Pity For a Coward, and announced that they were gonna film this song for an upcoming DVD that they have coming out! Consequently, everybody went twice as crazy, especially since Mitch was like, "This platform is a fucking diving board. I don't want to see it empty!" I haven't seen so many stagedives at once since Terror, which was really fun especially because there were a decent amount of people up front so you could dive without hurting yourself. Personal note, too: I think I've finally mastered the art of diving correctly where I do a flip, land on my back on the people, and roll directly onto my feet in a standing position, where I don't hurt myself. It was interesting seeing the people who knew how to dive, and the people who didn't, since it's pretty damn obvious. Some of these kids just had no idea what was going on, and landed directly on their heads/necks. Idiots.

Also, if this makes the DVD, I will laugh my head off: During the last "PULL THE TRIGGER BEEITCH HURP DURP" breakdown, I ran across the stage to dive, and somehow Mitch's mic cord wrapped around my ankle, twice! I tried as hard as I could to unwrap it, but it was taking forever, and Mitch was just glaring at me, and pushed me a bit like he was pissed at me. Right as I was getting it off, some bouncer/crew guy thought I was trying to be a smartass and stay on the stage, and just picks me up and threw me headfirst into the crowd. Somehow, the mic cord untangled as I was thrown. I also landed not so good on my neck/head area, but I was fine. DON'T TASE/THROW/DEFENESTRATE ME, BRO!

So overall, they were fun live. Not amazing. I would see them again. Unearth still stole the show.

Nice review. The further I read through it, the more I wished that I had gone to the show...until I read the sentence about the 100% certainty of a headlining tour later this year. Finally. FINALLY!!! Great Satan, it's taken them long enough. Now all they have to do is not pick the worst bands ever to tour with them (which isn't a slam dunk by any means, based on past history), and I'll be one happy fucking camper. Unearth is the best metalcore band in existence right now, bar none.

Am I misinformed, or do they not really play "Giles" all that often? It's not necessarily my absolute favorite song by them, but it's definitely pretty damned awesome, and I seem to remember a lot of set lists without it in there and me wondering why not. Oh well, glad you got that, "Zombie Autopilot", and all the other "Oncoming Storm" gems that you enjoyed so much. Sounds like I missed a scorcher.

Even still, I'm going to make the same set list comment I always make: NEEDS MOAR "THIS TIME WAS MINE"

EDIT: Oh, and I believe it's "This Lying World". (Unearth n00bz )

EDIT2: Red Fang fucking rules. That is all.

I don't know what you're talking about. Honestly, though, it slipped my mind. I've had it in my iPod as "The Lying World" for years; I totally don't know why. Whavetvs, it's still a sick song.

And you're correct, they never play Giles live. At least recently. They used to. They usually play Sanctity of Brothers, also, but I'm fine with them leaving it out since that set was so good. Watch it Burn is also amazing live; I hope they keep it in for a long time to come.

I'm pretty sure they also don't play Endless often. It's one of my favorite songs by 'em, too.

There was this one skinny kid who reminded me of you. He went to dive, but didn't jump at all, so he just kind of softly layed down onto the crowd. It was the most awkward thing I've seen all week. What a noob!

Aww, thanks Actually that's exactly what I did at Origin. But there weren't enough people there to jump on. There were enough at your show, I assume?

Please clarify - are you implying that Ben is:
  1. Skinny
  2. Awkward
  3. A n00b
  4. All of the above
Thanks.
