Kreator -- Montreal, Quebec -- September 10th, 2012

I am writing a quick review mainly to give an update about the sound.

Swallow The Sun- How did they get on this tour? I call it the " Who blew who " tour. Moving on.

Accept- The sound was odd. The drums and bass were over mixed for the opener. During Hellfire the sound leveled out. During some early songs it seemed someone was pushing a decibel reducer button. Eventually the sound was corrected. Besides Peter's bass having a bit of feedback at one point, they sounded good. They were louder than Kreator. Same set as other shows. Merch was reasonably priced. Cool flag for sale!

Kreator- The sound was ok overall. Same set as NYC and Worcester. The band was, and of course is, awesome!!! I spoke with someone who went to Worcester and said the mix was not good. I agree. However, as the show went on the mix improved.

I wonder if the sound for these bands was lousy because the personnel doesn't have adequate time between bands to get it right? I don't know. The past two shows I saw at Metropolis sounded great.

I got to the venue late to miss STS, and the show was worth it!

not gonna bother reading the rest of your review since Swallow The Sun is easily the best band on this bill.

You shouldn't have said anything about StS, now I'm angry

Sadly, I had to skip this because of school.
