Terror -- Westland, MI -- October 25th, 2013

The initial line-up for this concert was supposed to be Code Orange Kids, Power Trip, Counterparts, and Terror. Unfortunately Power Trip hit a deer the day of the show and wrecked their van, so they had to cancel the rest of the tour, which blows because I wanted to see them and Manifest Decimation melts my face off. But oh well. Onto the review...

First two bands were Intent and Demolition, who got added at the last minute as a replacement for Power Trip. I'm lumping them together because both bands played for about 7 minutes each. I don't really remember anything other than that.

Next was Build and Destroy, a band with a sort of "thrash" take on hardcore. They're from Detroit so I hear about them a lot but I've never checked them out. They weren't mind-blowing or anything but I enjoyed them and the energy their music brought. I would totally check them out again.

The first of the touring bands was Code Orange Kids. They had a very interesting set. One minute there would be nothing but a drum beat going, the next it would be a chaotic assortment of riffs, and then they would throw a really clam, clean-singing part out of nowhere. I would say it was better than the last time I saw them, but they're just OK in my eyes.

(sorry, no setlist)

Next was Counterparts, our friendly neighbors to the north. They were kind of the odd band out because they have a very melodic sound sort of like The Ghost Inside, but they still got a strong response. I was only a casual fan of them before, but after seeing them I gotta listen to them more. They put out a new album a few months ago, so check it out!

Setlist:
The Constant
I Am No One
Wither
Only Anchors
Slave
Witness
Compass
The Disconnect

And finally, the band practically everyone came to see: Terror. Anyone who has ever seen Terror live knows how fun and crazy it can get, and this was no exception. I mean, the place felt like a straight-up warzone during Out Of My Face. However, the setlist IMO was pretty disappointing. They played the exact same set the last time I saw them minus two songs, and the funniest thing is that they are supporting a new album on this tour! Still, even if they played the same songs the next time I saw them I wouldn't care because it's Terror.

Setlist (from the night before but the same songs were played, just in a different order):
Stick Tight
Overcome
Live by the Code
Spit My Rage
Your Enemies are Mine
Hard Lessons
One with the Underdogs
Return to Strength
You're Caught
Out of my Face
Keep Your Mouth Shut
Keepers of the Faith

Oops, forgot to add that they played Return to Strength, which was actually a nice surprise, but the point still stands. I'd love to hear Push it Away or Stay Free live.

One of the best live shows.

One of the worst at putting a setlist together & only playing 30-40 minute headline sets.

If you go to alot of hardcore shows that the normal set length. Anything more most times would be too long and the crowd would start getting tired.

I would have been pissed if i spent money on that and Power Trip couldn't make it. Code Orange Kids are the only other band I'd pay to see.

I get that, but that's such a bullshit reason. I don't see Dillinger shows going 7 songs and 45 minutes. They have shows that are just as crazy. Thats just such a cop out reason.

Very true, but I don't see Dillinger playing 200 shows a year like Terror.

Not to mention, as crazy as Dillinger gets, they usually have some mellow songs thrown into the mix, while Terror is non-stop 100 mph.

I saw Dillinger play a 50 minute set in a venue this year that didn't allow any on stage or off stage insanity. Also it's known that hardcore bands don't play length long sets because most go through the set with little talking. A Hatebreed set is like 20+ songs but tops off at a hour.

Also this, a nonstop insane set with all songs that aren't slow at all is draining. Why would a hardcore band play a stupid drawn out set when they could do a shorter more intense set.

I will never understand why people give a shit about Terror, there's nothing truly special or unique about this, and Scott Vogul is a douchebag.
