I must say that I enyoyed their album but it was not one of the bands that I was really looking forward to see (unlike Therion). Those are the best situations to be in sometimes because out of the blue you are shocked and amazed. The suprise element makes you enjoy even more. Anyway when they started their set before vocalist came out, they looked like any other good prog band. Their look, their presence, music nothing out of ordinary. Then this "Frat Boy" looking dude comes in with a mic in his hand. I first thought maybe this fratboy on his way to "midtown club" went in to wrong place. Then he starts singing and I am like Are you kiddin' me! He can pull off the tough vocal arrangements on the album with such an ease like its a britney song. More powerful than album, and control over his voice live than I rarely seen. Singers with 10's of album and 100's of large venue performance experience like Khan, Tate, Labrie NEVER sounded as good and as controlled as Circus Maximus singer Michael Eriksen. NEVER. WOW. I am still shocked and amazed!
