That's me circa yesterday night. :lol: Lucky for me I survived, considering that Amon Amarth is the pre-eminent headbanging band (higher headbanging quota than any other band) I think its safe to say that I will never headbang this much again in my entire fucking life. Not only was it a regular Amon Amarth set, but for the "opener" (they aren't touring with support) they played all of Surtur Rising and then the same setlist they were playing for the twilight tour for set 2. This was like the third show that sold out on this leg of the tour, so I say good for Amon Amarth. My head feels like it is going to fall off though :lol:. No earplugs either.
On the gear side of things oddly enough both Johan and Olavi were using 6505 cabs (ted had a Peavey 8Xsomething or other cab too, didn't catch what his head was). Of course there is always the possibility something was going direct or something was mic'd offstage, but if it was the 6505 cabs (they were using the heads too) I thought it sounded pretty good. Ted is playing a really cool new gloss black ESP 5 string too.
