that's not taped, if it was the it would sound much more better when it comes to execute, IMHO.

Thank you Lee.

My own thoughts were limited to: "well that got weird pretty quick" and "how in blue Jesus did someone get from what I said to THAT?" I'm just not mentally equipped to deal with that kind of jump...

Partially because the sound, tone, etc was different to the live guitar, but mostly because you could see that Ben & Chris weren't playing during the intro.

They seemed to be playing in the video, what little I could make out?

Re: the change in guitar tone, that's easy enough. I haven't seen them since last time they were in The States, but their guitar rigs on that tour (Engl Powerball amps + Line 6 floor units for effects) would make any change of guitar sounds, no matter how dramatic, very easy to accomplish with the press of a single button on the floor. That sounds like what's happening there- someone, presumably Ben? going from a clean sound with chorus and delay to a distorted lead tone. No big deal at all.

Why you'd put that on a backing track, I don't know, but stranger things have happened, I suppose. Though it's a simple enough part, and he's playing the exact same thing once everything kicks in. Sounds like a basic two-guitar arrangement to me.

There's no precedent that I know of for The Sisters to have guitars on a backing track- why would they? Those and the vocals are the only things that are live, and none of the parts are exactly difficult, especially for a band with two metalheads for guitarists.

Also- someone, presumably Ben, again, as I remember him doing most of the lead work- switches guitar sounds multiple times during the song. No conspiracy here, just effect pedals and changing channels on the amp, I'm afraid.

I see! Thanks mh and Llamatron. I was really just asking, no offense or trying to pick an argument intended.

I absolutely agree!

Liked the show, even better than Brussels IMO!

Indeed the original FALAA-guitar riff, really made the song more appealing. No backing track on this one, 100% live!

And nice to see even more people I hadn't seen in a long while! Cheers!

I loved the arrangement of the intro to FALAA the way they did it previously, how the arpeggio thing would flower into the classic riff.

Still, this is nice too.

I agree to centurionofprix. I like all of their "new" intros - it's Ben, isn't it?
But of course, variety is fine, too :)

Nice review!
The writer is a fan. I've read his first books and there were quite a few Sisters references in there too.

As per Chris Catalyst's tweet at the time. Good gig. Good crowd. Good vibes. And it's nice to see Von looking so happy and so animated, relatively speaking.
