10 Years... I hope it's not that long until the next time

10 Years are currently on the road with Apocalyptica's Shadowmaker tour, and what a wonderful show they make. Opening with From Birth to Burial from last year's album of the same name: Jesse Hasek on stage, shrouded, a white, long-nosed plague-doctor mask, lit only by an uplight, center stage, all else in shadow. Miscellania, then Dancing With The Dead from Minus The Machine.

I had forgotten how progressive (yes, I mean Prog), 10 Year's music is. Metal, rock, prog, intricate, beautiful. And how every song is going to sound different, new, reborn, each and every time they play it. (And how that makes me want to hear them again, and again.)

Don't expect the same setlist every night of this tour; this is live music, it's alive, it moves, it changes shape, and 10 Years embrace the art.

Wasteland, live, is a different being to the official video (which, if you still haven't seen it, watch it now, here); it's poignant, and we all sing along.

Great show; the capacity crowd at the Ace of Spades in Sacramento revelled in it, and I know I could see them over, and over, and over again, and enjoy each and every time. There's something special in music like that.
