    I dont usually post threads here (due to lack of imagination) but this evening I feel the need to share :). Words fail to describe how awesome the experience of finally seeing Nevermore live in action was today, but 3 hours ago. The crowd where whipped up like a storm and decimated. One guitarist down and with a huge song fuck up, the whole show was still pulled off with the highest flare. I endured 6 hours of shitty bands, expensive food and drink, standing, losing a £20 note and getting sunburnt by satan, and I consider that all a fucking fair price to pay. Didnt even stay for Devil Driver, screw them lol. I had the time of my life and to anyone else who attended I hope you did too. Kudos to Nevermore for finally visiting this little shithole.
    (PS I was the guy with the worst sunburn)

    Happy 666 everybody

    Yeah there was a guitar sound problem in I, Voyager, that became very aparrent about half way through, no guitar was heard at all. So the whole song had to be started over again, funnily just after Warrel had cunjoured up a frantic pit. The setlist (from my best memory, correct me on this if anyone knows better) was as follows:

    Final Product
    Engines Of Hate
    I, Voyager (x 1.5)
    The River Dragon Has Come
    The Seven Tongues Of God
    Inside Four Walls
    Narcosynthesis
    Enemies Of Reality
    This Godless Endeavor
    Born

    Not all that could've been said by far, but at the time of writing I'd sapped most of my energy on Nevermore and was ready for a snooze haha.
    Other highlights worth mentioning: Short but kickass Van Williams drum solo, Warrel smelt marijuana in the air, The pits were bloody sweet, the whole fucking vibe was powerful and profound and every song was a billion times more alive than on the albums or any bootlegs I've heard. Nevermore pretty much mopped the floor of every other band last night, without question. I didnt even see Devildriver but pretty sure they got mopped too, fuck it we all got mopped \m/.
    Warrel said it was a special experience for the band, and I got the feeling it was a special experience for the crowd, so I hope they do come back to Belfast again, how about 07/07/07? is that wishful thinking? :p

    It's all true - the gig was class, I'm massively sunburnt (despite using nearly a bottle of sun-screen - damn my sweaty forehead!!) and completely knackered. Good day though!! :headbang:

    Haha... keep a lid on it 'jock' hehe :lol:

    Video '04' shows the sound problem during I, Voyager... Jeff's sound dies. Must say, looks like it took a good few seconds for the tech to react!

    awsome! Glad to hear you enjoyed the show so much. Nevermore is one of those bands that just blows you away live, they totally exceeded my expectations when I saw them too.

    Nah, my mothers Irish, so I've stayed in Belfast on many occasions, just never seen the metal scene in all it's glory! All I got was a fucking fine for yelling in the street at night. :p

    Just checked all the videos, WD sounds ace.

    Superb show. The only reason I went was to see them, to be honest. Most of the other bands weren't my cup of tea.

    Derek, metal in Belfast is more alive than ever. Any time any band who is even remotely metal plays they either sell out or get an amazing reception. It's really improved lately.

    The local bands put on a good show as well... you have to admit but you're right in saying that Nevermore was the band of the day! They blew Devil Driver right off the stage...I mean the crowds reaction to Nevermore was spontanious but Devil Driver had to tell them to form a pit and get moshin' cause they didn't do it themselves...it really sucked that there was no Nevermore merchandise in the tent....when asked the girl told my son that they didn't think anyone would like Nevermore..can you believe that? I'd say that Nevermore gained quite a few new fans that day and impressed alot of us older ones. It is the first time I've seen them, although I have seen Sanctuary eons ago...and I will def go see them again!
