    Finally got some pics of Frederiks' Axe FX's, i think some of shots came out awesome...

    plus we got both of Haakes' drum sticks, our drummer has them now as he left for uni today so its an early birthday/leaving present for him :noway:

    on to the pics...

    Me, very cold, wet and tired already......waiting for the sodding bus.

    Finally get there and we get a few refreshments, while listening to Meshuggah on mates phone......how ghetto :noway:

    But on to the band shots, i didnt bother uploading photos of the support act, they were pretty bad IMO.
    Eye spy with my little eye...(note i couldnt see a Vetta in sight near Frederik's rig, Marten's yes)

    Wait a minute.....did Meshuggah switch from Line 6 to Axe FX? If so, I must be out of the loop. :shrug:

    As far as i'm aware Frederik switched to Axe Fx's, where Marten is still with line 6 for his tones, there was a Vetta 2 and a pod Xt pro on his amp/rack side.

    I can't wait for them to come back state side. Saw them with Ministry. Fucking AMAZING show! It was also Ministry's last tour ever....which made the whole night that much better. The crowd was fucking INSANE!

    Best memory of that show was my GF who'd never heard Meshuggah til that night: "Those are weird lookin basses!".....me...."Those are guitars......", her...."Oh!......oh...........damn." :lol:

    When they started playing they opened with Bleed, she just got bug-eyed and smiled for the whole damn set. You know you got a good one when they're hot AND they like Meshuggah :D

    Yeah we managed to squeeze through to the front barrier as soon as they started Bleed, i was opposite Jens pretty much all night. Frederik doesnt move around much does he... Marten and Lovgren wandered over to the center a few times but Frederik stayed over to the right unfortunately.

    Haake's sticks are now adorning our drummer's uni accomodation :yesway:

    OMG you were the guys who got both of the ticks?

    Me and Tom (CapenCyber on SS.org), the 2 guys wearing the Cynic shirts, were really fucking close to you... I was a few rows back (in the pit for half the show) and he was in the front row a couple of guys to the left.

    Just in from the glasgow show.

    Axe FX = fucking monumental tone. i felt like my soul was vibrating at one point.

    I saw a pregnant girl in the crowd and wondered if the unborn child was wondering what the fuck was happening.

    Absolutley the best gig ive been to better than the last time i saw them. Great set great sound fucking great faces from Jens

    EPIC WIN

    +1 dude, awesome show :metal:

    Whereabouts in the crowd were you? I was wearing my ss.org t-shirt in case anyone recognised it. Was talking to a guy afterwards about Blackmachines too (noticed him with a BM shirt on).

    Edit: Future Breed Machine to end with was amazing! Wasn't sure they were gonna play it but then I spotted Frederik's breath controller off to the side about half way through :D

    Hehe FBM is probably the only song you can guarantee they will play, I've never heard of them not playing it. They always play it last too.
