yeah, saw them in Stockholm in October.  Lovely set  consisted from the first four albums. Hope to see them next year in London and  Eindhoven.

They'd get some setlist for those four albums. Always felt they were never going to better their 90's releases and whilst their millennial material did have its moments not sure anything post Death Metal is absolutely essential for the bucket list. Would've been nice to see Mountain of Doom and Ancient Entity in a live setting from Tiamat but Clouds and Wildhoney are still among their best releases. Whatever That Hurts is still one of my favourite albums openers even though it marked a notable departure from their early 90's magna opera.

This was my Dismember experience. As for Tiamat, I agree, few tunes from the Astral Sleep album would be more than welcomed. Hopefully, Johan Edlund will be sober/clean and able to perform...Still, they will announce at least 8 more bands. (15th July at the latest).

That's an impressive setlist and nice momento courtesy of Fred to boot. Caught them three times over the years playing an equally tight but solid set. Friend of mine described them as the Ronseal of death metal. Hard to disagree.

The heart is telling me  to head to this, dream line up and sets.

the brain is saying WTF like, seriously? covid-19 will be a disaster rammed in for this with people from all over, with a swedish invasion of coronavirus to boot. Travel restrictions to get out or when coming back?

Dose!

If your that worried/paranoid  about getting Covid you wont be at a gig again for years.(unless we all get vaccinated in the next few months).

Im done with it,id go to a gig tonight if i had the choice.

Also travel restrictions will be shelved in a few weeks nevermind next February.

Judging by the way new waves give rise to reintroduction of restrictions elsewhere then I donít think itís that simple. Ability to travel and convene may well be beyond our control. From 29th June travel restrictions within Ireland will be gone but this remains:

International travel
all non-essential overseas travel should be avoided
passengers arriving from overseas are expected to self-isolate for 14 days
passengers will also have to complete a form showing where they will self-isolate

This lightest restriction could easily apply when a new wave hits. Itís certainly not a given that travel will be unrestricted at any particular time, and staying away from work for 2.5 weeks to attend a gig abroad might be a tad difficult! Could go either way really, que sera sera.

I'll let you know what the gig was like.

Can't wait to see Dismember again. One of the best live acts in death metal.

Perfect example of a band breaking up and then people caring when they come back. Dismember did fuck all tickets when touring before they split hahaha
