As I Lay Dying – Glasgow Garage – 29/11/10

After braving the snow in Glasgow, As I Lay Dying treated their Scottish fanbase to one of the best gigs of 2010.

Up first was Sylosis, who were added to the tour at the last minute to replace Rise To Remain. They only had a short set, but they made the most of it. This is a band with a fantastic future ahead, I urge you to catch them on tour next year.

Heaven Shall Burn were next, playing their first ever gig in Scotland. The crowd absolutely loved it and the band seemed to enjoy themselves too. Hopefully we’ll see them back here soon. Check out our review of their latest album here.

I’m not a fan of Suicide Silence and personally I didn’t enjoy their set, but everyone else seemed to love it, so if you are a fan of the band, you’d probably enjoy seeing them live.

As I Lay Dying are the band people paid their money to see, and people certainly got their moneys worth, playing a set made up of mostly material from An Ocean Between Us and their new album The Powerless Rise. The new tracks went down brilliantly and the crowd went crazy for the few old tracks they threw in. This is a band that have to be seen live, the songs sound great on album, but sound a thousand times better live. Their set had to be cut short, but their were fans still shouting for one more song, even after the house lights had went on.  Download and Sonisphere would be insane not to book this band for their festivals next year, definitely one of the best live bands I have had the pleasure of watching all year.
