    Was that at Northlands with BLS?
    If so, that is the epitome of a bad venue.

    Ensiferum has always been fantastic each time I've seen them live, which is six or seven times. I've never left feeling even the smallest twinge of disappointment after an Ensiferum set. I'm amazed those guys don't get burnt out, considering they constantly seem to tour as well.

    As for setlists, I agree. If a band truly became bored with the setlist, switch it up. I don't think any of the fans would mind hearing some seldom played material. I suppose if tour burnout becomes an issue, the logical solution seems to take a break from touring for a while, or at least schedule less dates. (Although contracts probably complicate this). I'm not saying that COB is burnt out from touring, or that they're bored with their own setlist because I can't know what they think.

    They may have just had a bad night. I've seen them live many times, and sometimes they're fantastic and other times they're just solid, without being overly exciting. That's somewhat to be expected. It's just luck of the draw whether the show you happen to catch is absolutely fantastic, or just great.

    From my opinion edmonton doesn't have any really "good" venues they are all pretty average but out of them all i like the shaw.
    The acoustics weren't that bad alexi's voice was just a little to quiet and one thing i like is how close you can get.

    New to COB: thanks for sharing the clips! awesome! 15yo fangirl mode!!!
    comments to previous postings:
    Yes it is a job, ROCKSTAR (counts as “cool”), gotta pay the rent. a gig does bring in $ but the experience is worth the price of the MF ticket. agree the “merchandise” is the money maker.
    they are human & probably have good/bad days. Ex. i met dave mustaine once, total dick (bad day) but megadeth rocked!
    true COB fans (uncool) + interaction from the band = great show. a 2hr set is sweet, woohoo, praise goes out to all of the members, but every night for days straight, F*CK! remaining tour schedule crammed for 4wks, note, Feats of strength! then NA leg. training has to contribute but, will someone think of the children! keep them healthy & happy! WTF!
    setlist is pretty sweet! dont mind a changeup when they hit NA. request for NPTD!!:headbang:

    There's a few acoustically fantastic buildings, but they aren't really meant for metal shows. Haha.
    The Shaw isn't too bad. I think my personal preference is for the Starlite Room, but their security guys have been assholes over nothing the last few times I've been there, so I'm getting a bad taste for that place.

    My biggest problem with Northlands was the organization of that show, and the fact that they wouldn't let us out onto the floor area with beer, and we could not see the stage from the beer gardens. If we had purchased seated tickets for that show instead, we would have been allowed to wander wherever we wanted with beer, so that was verging on retarded. Not to mention that there was no coat check (which is basically unheard of), and we had several other issues with the staff there who refused to get car keys my friend had dropped underneath some stairs. They never did get them for her either, even after numerous attempts at us following up on the issue.

    Paris was meh. Missed Ensiferum (when your ticket says 7PM, it'll obviously start at 6.30, and you'll hear only one song from the opening act), COB played 1h15, too hot, too much people (the original venue burned and the new one was way too little), too much kids trying to show you how to mosh -but getting punched hard because that's called experience-, no interaction at all except the eternal WHOOOPARIS WE'RE HAVING A GOOD TIME OR WHAT, crappy crappy crappy sound (Ensiferum was way better, never heard such a mess), no encore, and when you play the UGLY TOUR you HAVE TO PLAY "UGLY" otherwise that's stupid.

    Wether I'm too old, or the band are.

    They didn't play WIWI and HCDR? (and possibly ETID) since that is the encore.

    That's not what I call an encore. That's "we're taking a piss and BRB in a minute".

    For those who speak french, here's the report I made for U-zine.org : http://www.u-zine.org/review.php?id=423
    There are some good photos too ;)

    To made a quick review in English, as a big fan of the earlier albums, I still go see them even if it's no longer a band I listen to.

    This time in Paris, the sound was shitty and the band was kinda pissed of. I mean, no smile, no quick phrases to the audience, they juste played song after song and make me feel that we were just another date in a big tour. On top of that, they just cut the song Children of Bodom at half, before the most interesting part and didn't play Follow the reaper as they did in the previsous gigs...

    I totally agree with what NERVE said...

    Finally I get to see them tonight!
    And while I don't travel as far as some of the people here, sitting in the train for 3 hours will be worth it.
