Featured Artists: Fight the Fall; Genre: Hardcore;
Fight the Fall was the first to set foot on stage and these guys totally blew me away. If you’re a hardcore fan like me you will want to check these guys out they have all the breakdowns and 2-Step parts you could ever wish for. After there set had a chance to talk to lead singer Max Way and I was pretty blunt with him I just told him how good they sounded and how heavy there music was with the sick breakdowns and riffs and the vocals were so brutal and intense, so do me a favor do them a favor go check them out on myspace www.myspace.com/fightthefall if you ever see them on a show calendar get out to there show you don’t want to miss it you will be in for a treat.
Next to get on stage was Through Blunt Castration, before the show I was talking to band manager Nick B and I asked him to tell me a band that these guys sounded like so I can get an idea of what is going down tonight and he couldn’t give me one band they sounded like and you know what when I heard these guys I couldn’t even think of a band that these guys sounded like, So if your in to Grindcore/Death Metal then this is the band for you because these guys rocked live and the music on there myspace is pretty sick as well so if you like fast, heavy and intense music this is where its at check these guys out at www.myspace.com/throughbluntcastration they also have a couple shows coming up so get out to them check there myspace for times and dates.
Run for Cover was next in the lineup and these guys laid some heavy stuff down I jumped up in the Mosh for these guys it was just calling my name, they opened up with the song called “The Gallop” witch can be found on there myspace. When these guys played the whole room opened up every one was moshing for these guys. Metal/Hardcore is what these guys play and they play it well also having some 2-step parts in there to. Through out there set they never lightened up, all the way through it was heavy guitar and bass and gut wrenching vocals, it was intense!
