Good god it was one of the best shows I've ever seen, Virgin Black was absolutely brilliant, gripping and intense, Rowan's (singer) presence is something all it's own, very nice people too. Samael was nuts, just heavier than all hell and another example of insane presence from a singer. Amorphis was flawless, they played stuff new and old, even a song from The Karelian Isthmus and a few from Tales, the encored with "Black Winter Day" I was fucking thrilled! I also have massive respect for their new singer, who is very good and sounds terrific on the albums, live his growls are just massive, full sounding. Respect was gained because he was losing his voice, talking he sounded like shit and probably felt like shit, but seeing him up there keeping a good attitude and working through the show was impressive, even if the clean vocals sounded a bit bad he pushed on through it, excellent showmanship if you ask me.
But I must say, Virgin Black stole the show for me, they demanded attention and the material is absolutely brilliant.
Oh come on, no-one cares about these bands here?
