Ok people, like the old one, this is the place to tell us your latest concert experiences!

I'll start by pasting my last message in the old thread:

I saw Behemoth, Kataklysm, Aborted and Lyfthrasyr on Sunday.

As I may write a report about this one, I won't say much. Just that Kataklysm, and above all Behemoth, were amazing. Really. Absolutely amazing. I've been blown away, even if it was the third time this year I was seeing Behemoth live (after the No Mercy fest and the Hellfest). But, as headliners, they are even better.

Ok, I'll just give you the setlists of the last two bands, for those who care
Setlist Kataklysm:
Like Angels (Weeping The Dark)
Let Them Burn
Ambassador Of Pain
The Resurrected
Crippled & Broken
Serenity In Fire
1999:6661:2000
Where The Enemy Sleeps...
Beyond Salvation
As I Slither
Face The Face Of War
Manipulator Of Souls
In Shadows And Dust


Setlist Behemoth:
Rome 64 C.E.
Slaying The Prophets Of Isa
Antichristian Phenomenon
Demigod
From The Pagan Vastlands
Prometherion
Conquer All
Christgrinding Avenue
Drum Solo
Slaves Shall Serve
As Above So Below
Summoning Of the Ancient Gods
Christians To The Lions
Decade Of Therion
Chant For Eschaton 2000

Encore:
I Got Erection (Turbonegro cover)


To reply to another post in the old thread, both bands played approximately 75 minutes.

Next to come is Enslaved and Keep Of Kalessin tomorrow

I haven't been to a gig for a long time. Last one was in May 2014. Amon Amarth, support: Karma Violens. They kicked ass but they mostly played their newer stuff, which really generic, same sounding and boring. However they were so ood I enjoyed the show. Karma Violens were good as well.

I saw Havok recently at my favorite local venue. They tore that place apart. Great circle pits all night. Met and hung out with Davey Sanchez, and Nick whom is also in Cephaplic Carnage. Me and a friend got pictures with the full band too it was sick.

Nightwish + Amorphis in Stockholm. Very impressed by NW and their new singer. Amorphis underwhelmed however. They played well and all, but just looked generally disinterested during the whole performance, and left the stage early without playing most of the major hits.

I was there as well, and I mostly agree. I wish Amorphis would have been given a bit more scene time - think they only played for about 30-40 minutes right? Whole setlist was from Eclipse and forward as well which was a bit dull, no Black Winter Day even. I don't think they looked disinterested, at least not more than usual, every time I've seen them they've been doing the same thing. Very matter-of-fact performance which is kinda what I expect from them. The Four Wise Ones and Sacrifice were the highlights for me, I don't really like Sacrifice but it works much better live. They had problems with backing vocals on Bad Blood which ruined an otherwise great song.

Setlist: Death of a King / Sacrifice / Hopeless Days / Bad Blood / Silver Bride / The Four Wise Ones / House Of Sleep

I don't listen much to Nightwish anymore but their latest album made me interested again. I love their "return to basics" approach to it. It's a bit more scaled-down and feels more like a band playing (and therefore works better live). Their performance was stellar as always, very professional and personal at the same time. New singer has really brought more life than ever to the band in concerts. Though I wish they would keep the fireworks and fluff to a minimum and let the band to the talking. Very nice to see Troy Donockley with his pipes and stuff, brings a new dimension to their sound and they seemed to enjoy themselves a lot on stage. There were a few surprises in the setlist as well, which was nice. Awesome to hear the nostalgic favorite Stargazers again after all these years without Tarja. Floor really nailed Ghost Love Score as well.

Setlist: Shudder Before The Beautiful / Yours Is An Empty Hope / Ever Dream / Wishmaster / My Walden / The Islander / Élan / Weak Fantasy / 7 Days To The Wolves / Alpenglow / Storytime / Nemo / Stargazers / Sleeping Sun / Ghost Love Score / Last Ride Of The Day / The Greatest Show On Earth

Great evening all in all with the two bands that essentially got me into heavy metal. Nostalgia abound!

It might be a warm-up act phenomenon. They got some pretty good reviews for their recent headliner tour. Seemed like they just assumed that most people in the audience were only there for NW, and therefore weren't too excited about it themselves. Have seen a few bands that only truly shine when they are the headline act, likely for this reason.

I also like their latest album quite a lot. Was also pleasantly surprised about the more "band-centric" approach (not that Imaginaerum was bad or anything, quite the opposite). Although it seems many others are disappointed with it. Probably because of how hard Floor can rock some of the old songs live, and how she kind of takes a more restrained (yet still technically impressive) approach on the album. And maybe because it can seem like a step down in terms of ambition compared to Imaginaerum, with the less prominent orchestral parts (I don't have a problem with this however). It also has some nice Oceanborn throwbacks.

Sounds likely! I don't think Amorphis are that well-known in Sweden actually, which is kind of strange. When I saw them on the Silent Waters tour (many years ago, might have changed now) there were like, tops 100 people in the audience (they played the small stage at Fryshuset, with Swallow the Sun and Insomnium as support). Feels like there ought to have been a lot more people interested in that kind of show.

Did you notice Tomi tossing out CD's in the audience? Or maybe I just imagined it.

Wow, that's surprisingly few, although they should be more well known today. They got a lot of attention with Skyforger. But they still have the potential to be way more known than they are, given their earwormy melodies (even my mom is into some of their stuff).

Didn't see him throwing any CD's, but wasn't paying too much attention to it (just assumed it was the usual picks or drumsticks).

I'm planning to see Elder in couple of weeks, too (mainly out of curiosity).

How long was their set?

Between The Buried And Me, support for Protest The Hero. Holy shit BTBAM were excellent! We went for them, so we watched 30 minutes or so of Protest The Hero, they were okay I guess but not my cup of tea. Can't wait to see BTBAM again
