Notes by FinalX:
The gig was awesome. My body hurts so bad.
I take back what i said about them extending the set by adding more tunes. Its a non-stop sound of aggressiveness and power.
The setlist was pretty much the same as the other gigs (I’ll post a pic of setlist tomorrow or so). They didn’t play Mescaline although it was on the setlist… maybe because they started at 2:00 am (30 minutes later than expected)?
So… me and my mates went to the gig without having heard any of the new tunes that were already available online (wof, wd, beat55 and mescaline) and the experience was surreal. Similar to the one i had when i went to Vigo and heard WTFU for the first time (it was the second time they were playing it). The unexpected is thrilling and exciting, kind of like this gig but different because we already knew they were going to play new tunes. So where was i… ah, the tunes… they bang so hard! We didn’t know what to expect really, we just knew people on the forums were praising the new songs so hard and therefore our hype was huge and we had high expectations.
Long story short: The new tunes have a lot of energy and you can’t seem to stop moving to them, the new robot invasion set works very well and the boys are top notch.
My bestfriend’s girl recorded WOF on HD. I’ll probably upload it tomorrow and don’t ask me about the quality since i myself haven’t seen it yet. We were at the first row. So expect a shivering video and maybe some distorted audio.
