    Wed 18 Jan – The Black Dahlia Murder, Skeletonwitch, Fleshgod Apocalypse

    Fleshgod stormed the stage, such fucking musical talent and technical abilities... They're a great band. They were really great to watch as well, especially for an opener, they got me in the mood. The fact that they're combining Death Metal with Synphs and Orchastrated themed things is nothing new on the scene but, they do it so well that it's hard not to be impressed. The only fault I had with Fleshgod, is that I don't think they were on long enough, they must've played like 5 songs and I was like... Oh :( Still though, fucking amazing. 9/10

    I only listened to Skeletonwitches latest two albums and I wasn't impressed at first but from the second listen I developed a much bigger liking for them, and as with Fleshgod's 'Agony' Skeletonwitches latest record was one of my favourites of 2011. Their set was definitely longer than Fleshgod's, and they definitely played more songs. Though, that's primarily because of Skeletonwitches songs being shorter. I think it was Skeletonwitch that fucked up my neck, I was headbanging so much to them in particular. Their vibe was just great... Although, I overall didn't enjoy them as much as Fleshgod, I still give them their merits. They were great. 8/10

    Finally, TBDM... The main problem I have with headliners in comparison to supports, usually the headliners get so much more attention. I know, that is expected because most of the people came for the headliner. But, I personally did come for the headliner but that doesn't mean I was holding back for any of the other bands, I enjoy all three of them although TBDM the most, I still tried my hardest to have a good time. Nevertheless, it's time to talk about TBDM, they played some great songs. But, I think they missed out some that I particular adore like Statuory Ape and Nocturnal... But not everyones choices can be on the setlist. I was particularly happy they played Everything Went Black, which is my favourite song of theirs however, it is a popular one of theirs and that was expected. I was also surprised they played What A Horrible Night to Have a Curse so early in the set. Now, they usually close their setlists with an end of album song E.G. I Will Return, Blood In The Ink, Miasma... All on the setlist, or sometimes they close with one of the two starting tracks from Unhallowed but in this set they closed with Deathmask Divine, from Nocturnal. Great track, I was surprised they closed with it, but it was a treat to hear them play it. 9/10

    In conclusion, one of the best gigs I've ever been to, mainly because of the sheer quality of all the bands. Most of the gigs I've been to, there has definitely been a highlight of the night with a band (Usually the headliner) but in this case, all of the bands were great and definitely worth seeing. If you read this review before the tour ends, what the fuck are you doing? By tickets for your local venue, you won't regret it! Unless you wind up having a fucked up neck like me, then you slightly regret it... But it's worth the good time!

    Overall gig; 9/10... Bliss.

    Fri 5 Nov – Imperial Never Say Die! Club Tour 2010

    Unfortunately, due to sight and hearing restrictions I cannot make comments on either We Came As Romans or War From A Harlots Mouth.

    However, I saw all of the other bands so much so, that I am able to comment on them.

    Firstly, Your Demise. They'll your over-average hardcore band, but I liked them a lot more than I expected to, wouldn't mind seeing them again. 3/5
    The second band that came on that I saw was Emmure, they were good for their fanbase. However, they were shit from my opinion. 1/5
    The next band to come on was, Bleeding Through and they impressed me a hell of a lot. I've never really listened to them before, but they were a great live band. I'm definitely going to check out some of their material after seeing them. 4/5
    The next band to come on was Comeback Kid, and they were fucking amazing. Definitely one of the highlights of the night. 4/5
    And last, but not least... Parkway Drive, who I have seen before. They impressed me a little bit more than last time, they're a great live band. 4/5
