Nope. Not going across the country to hear Serpent's Kiss or whatever the fuck.
Yeah I remember Pinella telling me it was suppose to be a special set-list.
I'm still debating whether to go or not. If Redemption was headlining the first day instead of Epica erk, it would be an easier decision. There's not a single band I'm interested in besides them and Symphony X. $150 is pretty steep for two bands.
Not to underestimate the guys, but considering their track record, I can't see them re-learning that much stuff just for one show (or even a few shows). Like Detective, I think they will just play the title track. That's awesome since it's one of my favorite songs, but on the other hand, that 20 minute track is probably going to fulfill the quota of older material. We'll see. Oh. Of Sins and Shadows too, of course. That's two songs from Divine Wings.
It's really a pity that Epica and MaYaN alone are completely repelling me from Symphony X playing a special set.
I can't stand anything that Mark Jansen does musically. It kills more brain cells than drugs do.
Call it an early night on Friday and plan your dinner accordingly on Saturday. Problem fixed! See you in Atlanta
Redemption gets a 75 minute set. Epica gets 90.
Don't let 15 minutes keep you from one hell of a time in Atlanta.
SX has a 90 minute *minimum* set at ProgPower USA. They can play as long as they want to close out the fest.
That was actually a joke.
Actually it's finances that keep me from going this year if I'll be serious. I would very much like to attend ProgPower with Symphony X playing a special set, but money is lame.
I'm just angry and mildly jealous because I feel like I can do the same thing that they do. And I'm also a troll.
Oh, I thought that the headliner got 2 hours. Eh, I'm leaning towards going. Might not have a chance to see Redemption for a while, especially if new Fates finally comes out.
This festival is a wonderful thing! C'mon out!
First date in the european festivals, and WOW!!! A brand new setlist!!
You´ve got to be kidding me...
Well. They didn't add anything different, but simply getting rid of "Bastards of the Machine" makes for an improved setlist.
the smiley at the end of the post wasn't enough to guess I was being sarcastic, was it?
Actually, It was.
I wrote my post after I saw the setlist. I just couldn´t believe what I had read. (Don´t know why I was expecting something different though.)
Feels like reading a post by me from 2014.
Still playing filler like Electric Messiah, I see. Where's Heretic or Prometheus?
^--- I don't see the choice between the three as that important, none of them are even among the best of Iconoclast anyway. Some rotation would be nice for a change, though.
At this point there's no excuse for the setlist. It's a summer festival, goddamnit! It should be about time to stop focusing on the promotion of Iconoclast and get back to being SX, a band that's released eight albums.
I actually like Heretic and I think it would go well live. However, I just don't understand how they aren't tired of playing the same songs from the older albums. Come on, spice it up some! Throw in some surprises here and there at least.
I disagree. The two I listed are good tunes, whereas Electric Messiah is a piece of filler garbage that lacks any kind of symphonic elements whatsoever.
