This combined with the complex and complete arrangements between the instruments and Ihsahn's fantastic songwriting gave us an incredible set. I didn't know his solo material much before going to see his band, but they made me a fan. The band had an enormous stage presence too, especially the keyboardist and one of the guitarist, who kept jumping and headbanging like a maniac.
The keyboardist did that at ProgPower 2011 too. The only thing I have to say about the two sets from when I've seen him is that he played a couple Emperor songs to a bunch of prog/power metal fans and didn't play any Emperor songs to a lot of extreme metal fans. If he had those switched people would have appreciated it more because the prog/power metal people looked confused and a lot of people at MDF looked bored after a few songs.

Nope....Revenge was the reason I went this year....plus, I'm not an Emperor fan (besides the demos and first record).

I enjoyed them a great bit...was also my first time seeing them.

Ihsahn sounds pretty much nothing like Emperor.



IE not black metal.

I don't think Pentagram played...

I don't think Pentagram played Dying World

Please tell me if im wrong, but when i saw this posted i was baffled that Dying World was played. I just looked at a setlist that someone took a picture of, and it says where Dying World would of been played "Everything's Turning To Night". I know bands can change it up, but i'm pretty certain they didn't play Dying World.

I definitely understand where you're coming from, but there's also a flip side to it that people like me would really enjoy.

If there's going to be hours upon hours of black/death metal no matter what (which I imagine is the case at Deathfest), I'll be extremely appreciative of any bands who bring a bit of diversity to the day and contrast the blastbeats with some different material.

Likewise, if I know I'm seeing a bunch of prog/power all day, the band that brings out some ripping black metal for a few songs is going to be a really nice change of pace for a little while.

Curious?

Hey voidflame, I believe I helped you with your cast inside the sonar on Saturday. Unless someone else hurt their wrist during repulsion.

Out of curiosity, did anyone happen to see Mike LePond (Symphony X) at the fest? He was there, just hanging out. I saw him in the crowd Sunday and ran into him later that night. Got a picture with him and everything.

It was me, thanks dude!

Sucks that we didn't know who we both were and that I was a bit too sedated on painkillers, I would have talked more with you...
