    Re: Which Was Your Favorite Show This Year?

    by Ecliptica » Mon Mar 18, 2013 11:45 am

    Haven't posted in this thread in a while. I like list threads!!

    I really only saw one "bad" sets this past year and that was Delain's first set in the Spectrum and In Flames' pool deck (I only made it through three songs). They just bored me. Helloween's first set was extremely mediocre too, due to sound issues and having the hour+ wait.

    It's hard to narrow it down, because almost every set was even better than the one before it. I think, after a month and a half of reflection, my favorite sets were:

    1. Unexpect (pool deck)
    2. Rage & LMO (second set)

    After that, it's a total crapshoot.
    Heidevolk's second set was THE MOST FUN I've ever had at a metal show.
    Holy Grail played two incredible sets -- the second one (with 'Call of Valhalla') was a perfect set list.
    Dragonforce's pool deck show was so much better than I thought it would be. Marc is a hell of a vocalist.
    Angra was my most anticipated band and their second set on the pool deck was unbelievable.
    Tyr was great in the spectrum -- best setlist I've heard them play in the last six times I've seen them.
    Sabaton's pool deck show was amazing. They also played two perfect setlists.
    Nightmare was sooooooo good. . .

    Completely agree with this. Heidevolk was insanely fun! Can't wait to see them again.

    Turisas (Chorus Line) and Heidevolk (2nd set) were my favourite shows

    Falun looks really attractive this summer. Moonspell puts it over the top for me. They put on as good a live show as Sabaton.

    But the cost and travel/missed work days is way too much for me. I hope some of you go and I can live vicariously through you.

    Seem to be a 'you either love em or you hate em' kinda band Laura.

    Acapella - band consists of four singers and a drummer. So yeah, they draw ire from people because they are not 'true' musicians, and they also do more than your average amount of cover versions.

    But yeah, to me they are a breath of fresh air, their cover versions are awesome (their cover of Grave Digger's "Rebellion" one of my favourites. And "Wishmaster" by Van Canto. And "Primo Victoria" by Sabaton). And some of their original songs are amazing too.

    So yeah, they are another band that will polarize people. Elitists like Kevin will hate them, people that like to have fun will love them :) :P

    On the contrary, I think they're alright. I enjoy their covers a lot but I'm not gonna poop myself if they're announced.

    Whoa, Van Canto AND Korpiklaani would already be enough to book for me. Add Wintersun, Before the Dawn and Amon Amarth (who are all realistic for 2014), and the whiners can get the other 35 bands! :lol:

    That's only IF I get all of the above bands, which by now seems impossible since I just learned BtD is no more! :| Anyway, I'm confident anyone would choose at least some bands they don't care to see, otherwise they'd miss too many good shows. That's the beauty of 70K after all! ;)
