Didn't know too much about most of the bands going in
Very rare or first or last US Tour by Esoteric.
To flesh out the live show the main guy had two other guitarists, keyboardist and a rhythm section: It was heavy, getting warped by a black hole heavy.

Velnius were really good pacific northwest style metal, a little like Agalloch and other Profound Lore 'forest' metal stuff. Really good, really epic.

Saturnia Temple played two long stoner jams and were really mesmerizing, guitar got as warped as Helios Creed at times making it pretty unique, also great.

Evoken opened up and were great, slow motion doom with a hint of goth, maybe like My Dying Bride for the man's man. Keyboard was a little too dominant at times but there were some good crushing parts.

Good turnout, everybody present for Evoken all the way through to Esoteric, and you should see the backline they were all sharing.

Sorry I can't match my Massachusetts brother Scarab Cadaver in the show description department
