    Just got back...I was all the way in the back but made my way to the 6th row and got 2nd row towards the end...you just gotta push! Haha

    I was wearing my Ensiferum shirt with the huge Viking on the front if anyone saw me.

    Amazing show...Bleed for Ancient Gods and Under the Northern Star were the best but all were amazing...the crowd was really fun too

    Goatwhore were WAY better this time around. I've always been a fan but they really were amazing...The Absence were great.

    What a fun night :kickass:

    The ATL show tonight was amazing. Easy double the number of people from their last Atlanta gig, and probably more. Kudos to The Absence, you guys were ballin' for an opening act. Skeletonwitch and Goatwhore weren't bad, but they weren't amazing either. AA put on a fantabulous show.

    Highlights for me were Freewill Sacrifice (my current ringtone) and The Pursuit of Vikings (first AA song I ever heard, bough all their CDs with my next paycheck lol). Not to mention starting the first chant that brought out that crazy dude in the leather armor with the horn.

    Also, I found out from the Hot Topic goths that were going to a different show in the same venue that Birthday Massacre is "amazing." lol.

    P.S. Come back to Atlanta soon guys, I'll keep telling anyone who'll listen about you guys and hopefully the next time will be even better than this one.

    Orlando show was crazy...probably double the people compared to the 07 show. Amon Amarth was amazing but fucking shithead crowd never stopped pushing, got fucking annoying and I almost got in a fight with a guy...

    I did take some videos though, I'll post them up soon.

    Everyone pushes at metal shows...I don't see what the big deal is...lol

    You pretty much can't stand in place and windmill unless you're on the rail

    yeah in the ATL show there was a lot of pushing as well... ha what do u expect? theres always gunna be crazy mothafuckers goin wild and pushing, mosh pits, especially when Amon Amarth are fuckin playin and its so Epic that ppl are going crazy- The music just gets to you and makes u feel in another world, for me anyway, i love the feeling of a great band playing some great songs that you love. so stop bein a little bitch complaining about people pushing you
    By the Way The Absence were great, and Goatwhore put on a good show. Not a big fan of Skeletonwitch but they had a lot of energy and played well.

    in a van down by the fuckin' river
    back from AA tour of florida (Orlando and Ft. Lauderdale) in my camper minivan (Helga, she made it, 700 miles), good times, good turnouts, very good setlist especially in Ft. Lauderdale venue which btw was way too small and almost as hot as in hell I think or close to it or the venue in Seattle where sweat dripps off of the ceilings

    Ft. Lauderdale setlist was as follows:

    1.tottg
    2.fws
    3.asator
    4.vtw
    5.vom
    6.rtmm
    7.goa
    8.fon
    9.tyoo
    10.tlwpb
    11.dif
    12.vm

    13.cotbb
    14.pov

    my fav. three in one setlist, kick ass

    Black Canvas - fuck you. I know how metal concerts are but this was more than usual. Even when they weren't playing I was getting pushed forward and it started to really fucking piss me off.

    Tomasz you lucky bastard! They played Thousand years in Lauderdale, damnit! :cry:
