The fact that Converge and High On Fire had to open for Dethklok pissed me off.

I was at the Chicago date at the Aragon Ballroom. Mastodon filmed their DVD there. The show was absolutely nuts. All 4 bands killed it. Mastodon played all of Crack the Skye and then played Circle of Cysquatch, Aqua Dementia, Where strides the behemoth, Mother Puncher and then a cover of The Melvin's - The Bit.

Yeah this was a pretty amazing tour indeed. It looks like Boston may have been the only show where Mastodon covered Thin Lizzy instead of The Melvins.

Really sick tour. One of the loudest shows I've ever been to, second to Mogwai.

when i went to this show in Houston, at the end of the night Brendon was thanking all of the bands on the tour. when he said Converge, a majority of the crowd started boo'ing... i guess i understand why, but it was still a shock to me.

i definitely agree with the person that said this tour is LOUD. Dethklok (although they were amazing) was almost unbearable to me at times.

oh, and my brother literally fell asleep sitting down while Mastadon was playing... haha. that band is definitely not my cup of tea.
