All That Remains -- Columbus, OH -- November 12th, 2010

Showed up late and only saw half of And She Whispered's set. They weren't very good, but they got the crowd energized and didn't hurt my ears.

I never really listened to Born of Osiris, but I guess they were alright. Huge moshing in the crowd. This was my first concert with moshing in probably over a year. I had a blast, despite a few near-fights, being drenched in sweat, and getting hit in the head numerous times.

Back to the band: I didn't know any of their songs, and I couldn't hardly hear the guitar anyway. For whatever reason, I feel like these 'new' bands are playing death metal/metalcore/deathcore whatever with intricate guitar work, but then they turn the bass and drums up so loud live that you can barely hear the weedly-weedly guitar. Oh well. I have no desire to check out BOO after tonight, but no complaints.

Asking Alexandria were energetic, got the crowd moving. A friend of mine was complaining afterwards that they manipulate the drums somehow....make is sound faster than it really is and the clean vocals were lip-sang...they had an audio track doing clean vocals behind the (dual) screams. I didn't notice, but that makes me think that they are hacks. The "Oh My God" part of The Final Episode was pretty cool, but again, I have no desire to explore further.

All That Remains were badass. They lowered the lights and started playing a song over the PA. Lo and behold, it was Hang On Sloopy, the song that Ohio State plays at football games and everyone does the O-H-I-O thing with their arms. I'm a Buckeye, a lot of the people there were also students (venue was across the street from our student Union), and everyone else was at least an Ohioan....so pretty much the entire crowd was doing it.That was an awesome start to the show.

They played the same set they've been playing. The mosh pits were crazy, I got hit in the head by crowd surfers but never lost my glasses. Sang along to most of the songs from Overcome and Fall of Ideals. They're a really good live band and Phil has a great stage presence. I definitely recommend seeing them.

01. Now Let Them Tremble (intro)
02. For We Are Many
03. Six
04. Forever in Your Hands
05. Before the Damned
06. Aggressive Opposition
07. Chiron
08. The Air That I Breathe
09. Hold On
10. Dead Wrong
11. This Calling
12. Become the Catalyst
13. Some of the People, All of the Time
14. Not Alone
15. This Darkened Heart
16. Two Weeks

Fuck yes! Sounds like it's going to be a great show tomorrow for me I know a lot of guys at OSU, that's a great school. Also have good parties that I've been fortunate enough to "experience"...

Personally, I would highly recommend checking out Born of Osiris. They're one of the best new bands to come out of this recent surge of kids playing metal (After the Burial and The Faceless, also). I've liked
them for a while now. Good to hear the pits are rumbling for them and ATR, I know where I'll be at the whole night...

Oh: and perchance there was no karate kids at the show?

There were a few karate kickers, but not very many. Mostly regular old moshing and 'bouncing', which I think is stupid, but whatever. No big deal.

Went to the chicago show last night.

Great performance. All the new ones sounded great live, even "Hold On", which I think sucks on album. "Some of the people..." was their heaviest song, really good live. I think thats gonna become a staple of their live performance. And the "now let them tremble" -> "for we are many" was pretty perfect; that song is twice as heavy live than on the album. Overall, I was surprised with how good the new ones were live

I haven't heard the new album yet, except for Hold On, but I thought they were great.
