    Fri 5 Oct – Finntroll with Blood of Cain

    There were four opening bands scheduled for tonight's Finntroll show at the Key Club in Hollywood, none of which I had heard of before, so it was going to be interesting to see if any of them were any good. There was also concern that with so many bands playing before them, the headliners who I really wanted to see might have had a disappointingly short set.

    However, after Blood of Cain, a band from Chino, CA, started their set at 8:30 (a half hour later than the scheduled start time for the night's entertainment), they informed the crowd that the band that was supposed to play before them couldn't make it, saying something about them getting stuck in Disneyland traffic, so they got to play an extra song, or two, or...they had "one more" song to play three times. They weren't too bad, and had lots of energy and showed some talent, so I didn't mind much that they got some extra time.

    Saw Finntroll at the Croc Rock in Allentown last night.
    God those warm-up bands sucked something awful. But besides them, what an amazing show. I was thrilled to find out that they were playing in the area and based on the performance last night, was extremely happy that I wasn't lazy, and didn't buy tickets. I recognized all of the songs, and a few of my favorites included,
    Slaget vid Blodsälv
    Aldhissla
    Jaktens Tid
    Nattfödd
    Trollhammaren
    Gryning
    Sång(Back to back with Gryning, duh!)
    Korpens Saga(Played after Sång, duh!)
    Nedgång
    En Mäktig Här
    This show gets an 11 out of 10.
    Finntroll is by far the greatest show I've ever been to thus far.
