Yep, thank you very much.
That's some good sight-reading right there.
I know my BTBAM
Exactly how I feel about this record. It's unreal!
Everything I really liked about them, with very little of what I didn't like from past releases.
It feels coherent and the album on a whole is incredible.
New album is incredible. My favorite song changes every day. Right now it's Rapid Calm.
The Coma Machine is a lot of fun to play, too.
Absolutely loving this album.
Anybody have a set list for this tour? They're playing tomorrow night, near me and I really don't like anything after Alaska and The Anatomy Of. Basically I told myself I'd never see them again after their last tour with AAL. They announced that they were playing old stuff on that tour and wound up only playing a 15 minute medley of all the songs I ACTUALLY wanted to hear. So if anyone can tell me that they're playing "More Of Myself To Kill", that alone would make me go to this show. Please and thank you!
Hope they come back to New Zealand, they were absolutely epic when I saw them with AAL, so tight!
Some people don't want to see what they're playing so go here: setlist.fm - the setlist wiki
Here's the setlist they played in New Orleans back in April. Not sure if it's the same, but since the album has since been released I would think they have more Coma Ecliptic stuff now.
Highlight to view.
Selkies: The Art of Obession (Alaska)
Lay You Ghosts to Rest (Parallax II)
Extremophile Elite (Parallax II)
Memory Palace (Coma Ecliptic)
Sun of Nothing (Colors)
Disease, Injury, Madness (The Great Misdirect)
White Wall (Colors)
We interupt this Come Ecplitic gush-fest for a gush-fest of a completely different variety.
Last night my 6 year old was afflicted by some stomach bug and up all night vomiting. So I let her lay with me on the couch. I put on Live at the Fidelitorium in the background so she would drift to sleep (as opposed to a TV show or movie that she would actively watch; I know BTBAM ain't exactly lullabies - plus, I admit skipping over the really screamy parts).
Today, she's feeling fit again and wants to play a game. I asked if she wanted to listen to music, and she requested the "music we watched last night". So, now we're playing Tinkerbell Memory and enjoying some BTBAM. That's my girl! Get 'em while they're young!
P.S. Come Ecliptic still rules!!!
So I saw them on the last show of the tour. Twas pretty badass. It was maybe the best show I've seen from them. Question: during Bohemian Rhapsody, did members of the other bands and road crews dress up and come onstage? I was curious to know of this was nightly or a last night kind of thing. The Contortionist killed it too. Now for the heretic speech: Animals as Leaders was super boring. I like some of their music, but they just did nothing for me. Also, people were crowd surfing during that acoustic song (maybe Para Mexer is the name...) they play and Tosin had a "are ....ing kidding me?" look on his face .
BTBAM just announced another US tour on Facebook.
Kicks off on 11/18 in Cincinnati, which I will more than likely be attending. Oddly enough, Intronaut was opening for Meshuggah and Animals as Leaders last time I saw them.. and that was also at Bogart's in Cinci.
THIS is the lineup I was waiting for. I've seen AAL twice in the past couple of years, and The Contortionist wasn't enough of an enticement to get me to catch their recent show in Athens.
Now, they're in Atlanta proper with a bigger and way more diverse lineup, and I'm crazy about seeing Native Construct live.
I'll definitely be at the Cinci or Cleveland show. I wanted to go to the BTBAM/AAL/Contortionist show when they came through Columbus, but some stuff happened and I couldn't go. I have already seen AAL four times, despite not being a fan, and I saw the Contortionist when they were playing Exoplanet stuff. I'm not a fan of the new stuff. So I would've been going for BTBAM, which is fine, but I'm glad they're having another tour so soon with two bands I haven't seen, and Intronaut.
I hope they play Coma Ecliptic in full. But even if they don't, it'll be ****ing awesome.
I need to make myself aware of Native Construct.
Native construct are one of the most exciting things to happen to progressive metal alongside Leprous.
FFO: BtBaM, Queen, Mr Bungle, Les Miserables.
Sounds like it was just a last show of the tour thing, they didn't do that for Bohemian Rhapsody when I saw them but that's pretty awesome.
I'm gonna agree with your comment on Animals as Leaders but I also found their last album really boring, which I know is kind of a dumb way to describe their music when it's that dynamic, but I just can't listen to it. At least they played CAFO.
Closest show is Baltimore
I haven't heard of any of these. I'm totally out of the loop apparently. And now I have homework to do.
Closest show is three hours away on a Tuesday night. Ugh. I might try to swing it, but that's rough.
