Saint Vitus -- Cambridge, MA -- October 15th, 2013

I know I'm a week late, but here's my review of the Saint Vitus show.

I wasn't sure if I was going to make this show or not, even though I missed Vitus last time and really wanted to see them. About 3 days before, I realized I was going to be able to go. I told my friend from work about it, and he wasnted to go, even though he didn't know Saint Vitus (which is kinda weird since he's a huge doom fan, but had never heard of them). But, he had to work that night. So, I planned on going alone. The day of the show he called me and told me he didn't have to go in cause it was so dead, so I met up with him and we headed into the city.

We parked near the Middle East, and got ready to go ino the show . once we were feeling good, we went in, and the Hookers were about to start (I think there was a local opener we missed). The Hookers played party rock n roll type stuff, singing about Satan and other metal cliches. Fun stuff for some, but not really what I was there for. I was ready to get blown away by crushing doom, which is where Pallbearer comes in.

I was so excited to see Pallbearer, since I missed them at MDF. They got a lot of hype from their album last year, and it was well-deserved. They play sorrow-filled doom that is so heavy and powerful. They played a few new songs that didn't have lyrics yet, but the tracks sounded really good. Great set from Pallbearer, I will definitely see them again! And I can't wait to hear new material from them. My friend was so impressed he got a shirt, and he had never listened to them before the show!

The headliners were Saint Vitus. I have listened to Vitus for a while now, but I've missed the few times they've been around. This time I had to make it, and I am so glad I did. The band sounded so heavy the entire night, every song was spot on. Wino sounded great, and had really good interaction with the crowd. dave Chandler was nuts on guitar, talking to the crowd a lot and showing a lot of energy onstage. They played for I think about an hour and 15minutes. I thought the setlist was really good, they played most of the staples and every song came across really well live. I don't even want to pick favorites, since all the songs were awesome. really fun show!

Saint Vitus setlist:

Vertigo
Blessed Night
Clear Windowpane
Living Backwards
I Bleed Black
War Is Our Destiny
Let Them Fall
The Bleeding Ground
The Troll
The Waste of Time
Shooting Gallery
White Stallions

Encore:

Born Too Late

I saw this tour the night after this show in Rochester, NY and DAMN was it a good time! I've seen Wino before but never Saint Vitus and since they hardly ever come anywhere around here I just had to go. Vitus was great, as was Pallbearer, but man I wish the sets would have been a little longer. All in all still a fantastic night of metal and hopefully I'll get to see both of these bands again. Glad to hear that you enjoyed yourself just as much as me.

Also, I've never seen a band that even came close to having as much vinyl for sale as Saint Vitus did at this show. They had to have at least 7-8 different releases, some of which were still factory sealed original pressings from the 80s! I was beyond stoked. I wish I'd have had more money but I was still able to walk away with some good ones.

Vitus played the exact same set last night in Atlanta, and about 100 people turned out for the show. Unfortunately, we got Zoroaster instead of Pallbearer. The last time Pallbearer played here, sound problems ruined their set, so I'm looking forward to seeing them again.
