When the opening act Forsaken came out I couldn’t help but notice the similarities to early Metallica/Megadeth (the early stuff when they actually made decent music), so safe to say if you are not a fan of Metallica you will not like this band.
Their onstage presence consisted of duelling solos and long haired moshing to the old school styled thrash sound they produced, with the odd “metal ballad” thrown in for good measure. The pure raw projection of the vocalist enabled him to go from soft to “so loud he probably didn’t even need a mic” with ease, which was actually kind of impressive in itself.
The only critique I could possibly give would be that the bass sounded a little muffled and wasn’t coming through as clear as it could of...
But of course there is one critique that makes me cringe just thinking about saying it, and those who know me well will know how much it hurts me to say this... The drums needed to be louder. A good drummer needs to be heard and it was a shame I couldn’t hear more, but minor details aside I thought it was a great performance!
