Amon Amarth -- Hollywood, CA -- April 8th, 2010

One of the most fun shows I've ever been too. Met a bunch of new people, saw bands I'd never seen before and have been wanting to see for a long time, and just overall had a really fun time.

The venue was the House of Blues in West Hollywood, California. Doors opened at 7 PM and Holy Grail went on around 8 PM and played their set.

They were really talented and very into their music. My friends weren't so into it though, so I mostly chilled with them in the back and talked. They seemed like they really wanted to be Iron Maiden, which isn't necessarily a bad thing, but their influence taken from Maiden was very obvious. The guitarists were really versatile in their solos and riffs and the vocalist had a really wide range.

Eluveitie went on next. At first I was headbanging outside of the pit, but before I knew it, I was right in the middle of a massive pit! This was my first time seeing Eluveitie, and the first time hearing their music other than a few samples from iTunes and Youtube. They impressed me a lot! It takes a lot of precision, coordination, and effort, to have nine instruments present at the exact same time without it sounding horrible. The pit was very rough, yet somehow enjoyable and friendly. I will definetely see Eluveitie when they come again.

Me and two friends walked over to a mini mart near the venue, and missed the first song of Amon Amarth's set; I though we had more time. They were just fucking amazing. They had a bassist filling in because their permanent bassist had just become a father. They all played amazing and it sounded just like the album's quality. Running on two and a half hour's sleep, me and my friend relaxed at the bar for most of the set, still headbanging, but incredibly tired. Hopefully next time I see Amon Amarth I have a lot more energy! The pit looked insane.

I would have bought merchandise from the bands, but it was $25 for a single t-shirt! I've noticed that House of Blues adds at least $10 to the price of t-shirts, because I've never seen a shirt sold there for under $25, and I've been to the House of Blues many times.

This concert was on the same day as the Revolver Golden Gods, which was great, because now all the people who would be going to that show would not even consider ruining this awesome show! If you have any doubts about going to this show, fucking go!!!! It's an amazing lineup and every band puts on a stellar show!

Yea, but it's a 3 hour drive from where bt11763 and I live. Though there is a possibility I might go.

Megadeth and Testament shirts were 40$ at the venue I saw them at recently.

Since I know people want the set, I checked the AA forum. It's completely out of order, and sorted instead by album, but they said:

From TOTTG:
-Twilight of the Thunder God
-Free Will Sacrifice
-Guardians of Asgaard
-Tattered Banners and Bloody Flags
-Live for the Kill

From WOOOS:
-Valhall Awaits Me
-Runes to my Memory
-Asator
-Cry of the Blackbirds
-Under the Northern Star

From FON:
-Pursuit of Vikings
-Valkyries Ride

From VTW:
-Death in Fire
-And Soon The World Will Cease To Be

From OSFTGH:
-The Dragons' Flight Across the Waves


Absolutely nothing from The Avenger or The Crusher, which is sad. Cool to see Dragons' Flight in there. I've seen AA four times already, but this is a decent enough set (I think I count six songs I haven't seen), plus with the good support, that if this was coming to Worcester NOT as a part of NEMHF I'd probably go.

I still feel like they'll never top the set they did in Winter 08. The Sound of Eight Hooves, Hermod's Ride to Hel, Thousand Years of Oppression, Down the Slopes of Death, Bleed for Ancient Gods, Ancient Sign of Coming Storm, plus all the staples. It was godly

Live for the Kill + Vallhall Awaits Me = YES. I just hope they don't get cut because they're playing a shortened set for NEMHF
