Last Dimmu Borgir/Amorphis/Wolves In The Throne Room at the Forum last night.
WITTR were good, love the music, just find the "don't say a word to the crowd" stance a bit tedious sometimes.
Amophis were fantastic, setlist focusing mainly on the newer stuff, but we still got once song each from the first 2 albums. Had upstairs ticket but sneaked in downstairs for them.
Dimmu Borgir - went back to sitting upstairs for Dimmu. What has happened to this band? Every song is some overwrought pompous symphonic War Of The Worlds mess, they have the nerve to call themselves black metal, but they're barely even metal these days. They hardly even had much of a stage show apart from some green lights, and the band spent the first 4 or so numbers wearing cloaks with huge hoods up, looking like utter bellends in the process. Mourning Palace was the only older song, played right at the end, and was as much of an awesome headbanger as ever....shame about the hour of dogshit that preceeded it.
Next - maybe The Wildhearts next Saturday (hmmm, should I go?, otherwise nothing planned until Alcest in early March.
