Lamb of God -- Los Angeles, CA -- April 3rd, 2009

What a long-ass day! I arrived outside the Hollywood Palladium at 12:00 to get front row view for me and my friends. While there I had the pleasure of meeting Andrew (andrew_metalhead) from this website.

Around 6:00, they finally let us in. Me and my friends rushed to the front and got great spots.

At 7:00 sharp, Virginia thrashers Municipal Waste took stage. They did just what I expected them to do. They thrashed and got the hell out of there. Literally their set was 20 minutes long. The crowd didn't seem into them. 'Nuff said.

Next up was God Forbid. I had the least expectations for them, and to say the least I was really impressed by their live musicianship and the relationship that they build with their crowd. I happened to see the setlist. I read it like this.
1. Anti-hero
2. War of Attrition
3. Shallow
4. Force Fed
5. The Sea

Next up, a band which I had no clue what to expect. I was blown away with the crowd response and quality of DevilDriver's set. I really enjoyed it and will definetely try to catch them when they come back to the US to promote the new album.

Finally, the show was about to begin, at least I believed so. Children of Bodom strolled out with a hilariously explicit intro and went right into the set. I had very high hopes for these Finnish metallers and can only describe their performance as dissapointing. Maybe they had an off-night, maybe Alexi was drunk as fuck but they just didn't come through for me.

Drum roll fucking please!! My favorite band was about to come on. Due to the intensity and sweatiness of trying to keep the front spot on the barricade, my friends and I bailed and decided to go into the pit. Here is the setlist, it is very Wrath heavy, which made me very happy. It was great to see so many of the new songs played live, but of course that means they had to cut some of my old favorites (11th Hour, Again We Rise, Vigil, Omerta, Pathetic, Descending)

Setlist: (Probably not in order as I have terrible memory, but all the songs are here)
1. The Passing
2. In Your Words
3. Set to Fail
4. Walk With Me in Hell
5. Hourglass
6. Now You've Got Something to Die For
7. Dead Seeds
8. Grace
9. Laid to Rest
10. Ruin
11. Broken Hands
12. Blacken the Cursed Sun
13. Contractor
-------------------------------------------
14. Reclamation
15. Redneck
16. Black Label

For the second time in a row, I regretfully did not participate in the Wall of Death during Black Label. I would have loved to, but halfway through that set I was sick to my stomach. When I was walking out of the venue I puked all over the place. Whether it was lack of sleep, food, energy, or whatever, I just felt horrible. But once I puked it was alright and I kept moving. Lamb of God continues to be the best live act I've ever seen. They didn't miss any one beat of their song. They really do have their shit together. I'm proud to call them my favorite band. I can't wait to see them again I hope they come back soon!

Overall it was a great night and it was TOTALLY worth waiting 6 hours in line for!!

DD - 8.20 to 9.05
COB - 9.25 to 10.05

And COB's setlist was same as the recent European ones. Can't remember the exact order of songs but the usual ones were on their list. Loved every fuckin minute of Bodom!!

hmm the Bodom set is decent
the LOG set doesnt look too bad considering Wrath is good but not very familiar with all the songs

oh well still would have been a killer show to see

I'm disappointed with the Bodom setlist. Yet again I miss out on Hatecrew Deathroll (same as Gigantour last year). Songs like Living Dead Beat, In Your Face and Hellhounds On My Trail are played out to my ears by now.

Also, Devil Driver played? I thought As I Lay Dying was the other support? If so, anyone know their setlist?

Lamb of God needs to get a new set. They have played the same set since Ashes of the Wake came out. Just throw in new songs and play the same old thing. Need some suprises in there sometimes.
