Killswitch Engage -- Baltimore, MD -- December 27th, 2012

Full Review

Saw Killswitch last night \m/ Sold out show at Ram's Head Live. There were a lot of... 'normal' looking people there, you know the short hair, baseball cap, white variety there. Not judging, just an observation. I know Killswitch is a bit more...mainstream or the like, and draws a different crowd than say...Sabaton, but I still like them.

Acaro- IMO Killswitch lite, but not quite there. Kind of forgettable. Good energy, OK opener. Kind of meh.

Periphery- I swear I saw these guys open for someone else years ago, but I really can't recall. A nice change of the metalcore/thrash (Shadows Fall) that was dominating the night, but it was a bit jarring. I was a bit distracted at this point, so I don't know if I can give them a fair shake. So I thought they were OK, but nothing really special. I'd need to give them some more listens

Shadows Fall- its been years since I last saw them, and they were still very good. Kind of an odd set list, but overall Enjoyable. Only complaint was that their volume was way too low.

Killswitch Engage- first time seeing them with Jesse singing, and he delivered almost flawlessly. Sung the old stuff great and the Howard stuff satisfactorily. There were people in the crowd scratching their heads/looking blank on some of the deeper cuts from 'Alive...', but they got back into it for the 'hits.' Sounded great, but only played an hour :/

They did understand that the band is playing "Alive or Just Breathing" in it's entirety and has been all tour, right?

I don't think so. I mean *I* know, but I go to a ton of shows and keep up with stuff like that. I imagine that there are people who hear 'Killswitch' and think its either a) same band as it always was, b) will hear 'hits' c) is a casual fan.

nothing wrong with that stuff, but its def a different viewpoint of how I follow music and the like

Good point. Sometimes I get so caught up in how I and others, like you, follow music and forget there are casual fans that also go to shows hahaha

I def get a bit caught up in that especially when people don't understand how encores work, or shout the names of songs they want to hear (and expect the band to play them)
