Primal Fear -- Allston, MA -- May 22nd, 2010

Primal Fear tonight were definitely one of the best bands I've ever seen. I honestly forgot how good they were live. Scheepers doesn't fail to impress on vocals.

Really awesome crowd. Me and Chyck had our exact same spots as at Dark Tranquillity the other night, and, on the plus side, neither of us got our cars towed or ticketed!


Final Embrace
Killbound
Nuclear Fire
Six Times Dead (16.6)
Angel in Black
Seven Seals (w/ Pamela Moore)
Guitar Solos
Sign of Fear
Fighting the Darkness (w/ Pamela Moore)
Riding the Eagle
Running in the Dust
Twinkle Twinkle Little Star
Metal is Forever
------------------
Battalions of Hate
Chainbreaker

The written set also had Hands of Time in the encore, but it wasn't played. Probably have more to say in the morning. Havok were REALLY good, I was surprised.

Dammit, Juukun! You and your shorter drive home! I was going like 85, too.

Anyway - here's a partial Havok setlist. I don't recall at the moment if there were 6 or 7 songs played... I think 7, actually...

The Root Of All Evil
?
D.O.A.
Ivory Tower
Morbid Symmetry
Afterburner
?

Also, JuuKun, you totally forgot to include the audience's terrible rendition of Twinkle Twinkle Little Star. Wtf was that? Seriously... wtf

What a great show. It was definitely one of my top two of 2010 thus far.

In Harm's Way opened, and they were great overall. I'm impressed that a local power metal band has that much talent. Alas, their singer (who is also of their guitarists) is not at the same level as the instrumentation. They could definitely improve by adding a fifth member for vox.

Havok was a blast. Fast and crazy and thrashy and WOW. Despite the fact that they're suddenly a three man band instead of four, they sounded great. I doubt most of the audience even realized they were a man down. I really look forward to them producing another album - their new stuff was fun. They were pretty humorous as well - from claiming they were going to play a slow song to mocking a friend of mine who tried to start a pit. Ballsy... said friend is very large

We waited for a rather long time for Primal Fear to come on. By the time they got on stage, whatever sweat had collected on our bodies had dried. Stinky audience.

... totally worth it.

Primal Fear was amazing. Repeat: AMAZING. Spot on sound, expert performers, and a great mixup of old & new, fast & slow songs. The crowd was great. Everyone was singing along, especially to the choruses, and I'm glad I got a bit of "Fighting the Darkness" on video. It looked like the band was having a blast. In between songs, Ralf made the audience sing and, as mentioned previously, somehow ended up getting a hilariously painful rendition of "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" out of us because he couldn't come up with the "story about metal" that Mat Sinner asked him for. Every song was a highlight.

If you're able to attend this tour, you should. I guarantee you won't regret it.

T-shirts were $25

PS - I got a Primal Fear pick . I'm a happy Chyck.

Aha, yeah. How could I forget about that? This was after I started up that "Storytime" chant,

Seriously, though. So good. Exactly like Lynne said: If you have the opportunity to go, DO IT. Don't even think, just do it.
