Agalloch was amazing !!! I've never seen a band play with such passion, talent and emotion !!! I was going totally crazy during their set, it was absolutely perfect, except for the vocals. They always get lost somewhere...
When they played Bloodbirds... it was absolutely crazy, everybody in the front rows were just banging their heads real hard, screaming with John. It's the last track they played before the encore, so they gave all they had, Don Anderson was jumping all over the place, screaming even though he didn't have any mic! He was standing, just in front of me and my girlfriend, shredding and blowing our minds with his skills! He was jumping all over the stage, and I managed to take a photo of John in the middle of a powerful headbang, the picture is fuckin' amazing !!!
The last track of the Encore was In The Shadow Of Our Pale Companion, which was absolutely amazing. It was the only track they played from The Mantle, but boy, was it well executed!
This is the setlist:
1.Into the Painted Grey
3.The Watcher's Monolith
4.*I'm not quite sure about this one, I'll have a chat with some other people who were there to find out.*
6.Ghosts of the Midwinter Fires
7.Our Fortress is Burning... II: Bloodbirds
8.Dead Winter Days
9.In the Shadow of Our Pale Companion
And I'll just have some more fun messing with you guys, Musk Ox and Don Anderson played Isle Of Summer during Musk Ox set, and they did it for the first time in Montreal !!!
I'll post some pictures tomorrow and upload some videos :)
