There I was.. stepping out of the bus at 16:00 in Amsterdam. First of course I went to the venue to see if any of the band members were outside. To my surprise the entire band was walking outside. Some fans took a couple of pictures with Davey, then he took off and I didn't see him again until .

First of course I went to the venue to see if any of the band members were outside. To my surprise the entire band was walking outside. Some fans took a couple of pictures with Davey, then he took off and I didn't see him again until the actual show.
After realizing I didn't have a pen or a camera with me, I went to the nearest book store to buy a pen. So I went back, walked to Jade and asked "could you sign this?".
*skip to 21:00*
The support band "Circle" started. It was kind of a punky Papa Roach. I personally thought they were quite dull. The music was pretty repetitive and they didn't move around at all. When they were finally done I tried to push my way to the front. I finally ended up at the "third row" of people, if you know what I mean.
The soundcheck seemed to last forever. It was about 30-35 minutes. But when Miseria Cantare started playing, the entire crowd erupted with joy. They dimmed the lights and the dark orchestral sounds of Miseria Cantare started to burst from the speakers.
When the song reached "Nothing from nowhere.." the entire band came on stage.
After 14 enthralling songs, the band dropped their instruments and left the stage.
During the entire show there were loads of people shouting and begging for Death Of Seasons. By the time the encore was about to start most of them gave up hope.
But it wasn't over yet, their final song was God Called In Sick Today.
A great ending to a great evening.
