All That Remains Play Oklahoma City

I got set to interview All That Remains at around 6:30 (video and transcript comming soon). Phil wasnt feeling well so I interviewed Oli. He was awesome and gave a good 10-minute interview.

I got on the front row literally 4-5 feet from the band and stage, which is an awesome way to see a concert. Horse the Band came on-stage first. They are a 5 piece (keyboardist being the odd part) and were all fairly young guys. I've heard of Horse before but had never found the time to listen to them. Unfortunatly they had mic problems and you could barely hear the singer, even with how close I was to the band. The music was good, but the keyboards were mediocre and made you wish they would just play music. In many songs they left space for a keyboard-solo, which was kind of boring. The crowd was pretty into them, especially during "Anti-pizza." They played a 6 song set, but during their last 2 songs the bass player's equipment broke, and caused a lot more problems. I felt bad for them, as they were quite decent despite the problems and keyboardist.

After a long pause to fix equipment and finally All That Remains got on stage. The crowd was totally into them, and it seemed like they should have been the headliners. They started off with "For Salvation" and Phil was really on fire. He was flying around the stage and playing to the crowd really well. He displayed a lot of charisma, which ignited the crowd. They promised a half-and-half 8 song set and really delivered. They played Death In My Arms, Air That I Breathe, It Dwells In Me, Weak Willed, Tattered on My Sleeve, This Darkened Heart and This Calling. The set was amazing and they left a 5 minute slot for Oli to show off his guitar prowess.

Unfortunatly I had work the next day and had to leave before Dragonforce got to play any songs. Thankfully I went for All That Remains and was not disapointed.

Dragonforce was excellent. The guitarists were OUTSTANDING and fun to watch. But what i don't get is why they feel the need to make sexual poses. It stupid and takes away from the show. if you music is good (and theirs is), bands shouldn't stoop down to that level as a crutch.

I liked the show when I saw it in Chicago. HORSE the Band was pretty amusing to watch, and All That Remains was pretty good too, but they sounded pretty bad, almost to the point where I couldn't figure out which song was which.

Dragonforce was great, crisp and clean, and I enjoyed their show better than the other two, shame you missed 'um.

I saw DF and All that Remains at a sold out show in Portland, OR. Horse the Band sucked a$$ to start the show but All that Remains where amazing and Oli played a great solo. But DrangonForce took the show by storm with outstanding guitar playing and great enthusiasm.

I thought that Dragonforce put on a good live show. Definitely better than Ozzfest was because they were healining and actually had time. But All That Remains I thought was great and I didn't like Horse the Band and there was a small mosh pit for them. But All That Remains and Dragonforce had huge pits. I was definitely surprised with how big Dragonforce's was.
