Pallbearer and At the Gates at Regency Ballroom.

March 30, 2015

As I often travel to the city to coach at meets, occasionally I’ll make myself a little mini-trip out of it and see a show at a bigger venue, especially if I’m coaching at a two day meet.  Luckily for me, two of my favorite metal acts happened to be playing together Saturday at the Regency Ballroom.

Front and center, brah.

I fan-boyed out and got up close for Pallbearer.  Honestly, the’re better suited for the small club scene and they only had a 1/2 hour to play so they could only knock out some of their new material which I’m nat as into.  Still a good set and I got to make up for not seeing them at Eli’s last time they came around.

At the gates was the headliner.  I didn’t really have any expectations but actually really enjoyed their set.  Tomas Lindberg is an extremely enthusiastic frontman and got the sold-out audience moving.  They played a good amount of older material which I’m sure everyone was there to see. Also, Swedes sound hilarious when speaking english.

Here’s a cut off their new album which I thought was dece’ especially after so many years of not releasing anything.  No, it’s not Slaughter the Soul (a melo-death staple).  But it’s pretty good.
