Fans turned out in droves for the New York City stop of the ‘Epic Kings & Idols’ tour featuring KatatoniaDevin Townsend Project, Paradise Lost and Stolen Babies.

Katatonia are out in support of their ninth full length record ‘Dead End Kings’ and they kicked off their set with ‘Dead Letters’ from the new album. The Swedish metalers also performed new tracks like ‘Buidings,’ ‘Lethean’ and ‘The Racing Heart’ along with older cuts ‘Teargas,’ ‘Walking by a Wire,’ ‘My Twin’ and more.

Devin Townsend and the rest of his band had the most energetic set of the night and put on one of the best shows of the year. Townsend has one hell of a voice and he belted out songs such as ‘Supercrush,’ ‘Juular,’ ‘Vampira,’ as well as numerous others. The band also showcased the new album ‘Epicloud’ with performances of ‘Kingdom,’ ‘Lucky Animals’ and ‘Grace.’

Townsend is known for his fun stage presence, and he threw smiles and funny faces to the welcoming and enthusiastic crowd. The Devin Townsend Project is one group of musicians that cannot be missed in concert.

Paradise Lost performed a vigorous set that kicked off with ‘Enchantment,’ ‘Erased’ and ‘The Enemy.’ They also played the title track of their latest record ‘Tragic Idol’ and another new tune ‘In This We Dwell,’ as well as older favorites ‘Faith Divides Us’ and ‘Say Just Words.’

Stolen Babies opened up the show and began the night of madness with their carnivalesque, avant garde metal set, which fans really dug. Frontwoman and accordion player Dominique Lenore Persi would later grace the stage again during Devin Townsend’s set.
