Seriously guys, catch this tour if you can.
some local band, then the boys in THE SERPENT & THE SIREN (POSTHUMAN ONLINE!!!) on MySpace Music - Free Streaming MP3s, Pictures & Music Downloads came on. They had a good set, good energy and clint has ridiculous vocal capabilities (and he's a nice dude). Turns out Jackson MG dinky's have nice necks *sigh*.
After that was Abacabb. Rather brutal music, yes - but synchronized two-stepping and full-body type headbanging (you know, the type where you are basically moving up and down with your legs) looks.. fucking dumb . a few of us birst out laughing. Decent set, wasn't overly impressed or anything like that.
After the Burial - please catch this band's live show as soon as you possibly can. These guys can PLAY! Their live setup was 2 full stacks? (6505+ and triple rec) and I think a bass rig similar to Mike's (Eden something). The drummer had a massive cymbal rack and a huge kit, it was obscene . Also, the guitarists were both sporting custom-finished Ibanez RG2228's - i dont think they were LACS, just refins. These guys had the most crisp stage sound of the night, and put on a hell of a show. Watching trent work that RG2228 was fun .
Veil of Maya tore it up for the closer . Marc has switched over to a washburn of some sort apparently, still sounded sweet and it looks pretty metal haha. As usual, the band was hella tight - they put on a great performance . The setlist was nice and varied with some older and newer material - a few myspace classics and some older stuff. Overall, very tight set and high energy. My only complaint was that I couldn't really hear much of marc - i dunno if it was the angle his cabs under his V2 were at (i wasnt directly in front of them) but I had trouble hearing some of his lines.
Overall, easily worth $13 and I'm glad I bought the latest VoM and ATB albums . Currently listening to after the burial . Bummed out that Fellsilent couldn't make it, as that would have just tore the roof off the place.
CATCH THIS TOUR!
It was awesome.
ABACABB couldn't make it but Veil of Maya and After The Burial were incredible.
And yes, the ATB guitars are just finishes, they aren't LACS.
