Gill gives you his review of the band he calls ‘the best new metal band in the UK’.
This is going to be an alphabetical list review dedicated to ex-Every Time I Die bassist Chris Byrnes.
A) Show sold out ahead of time.
B) The band feared this might be a joke and that only five people would turn up.
C) They are young. 21-ish.
D) They are heavy – loud but not noisy.
E) They have some awesome technical moments, but interspersed with great song along/chant along choruses.
F) They open well…
G) …plateau after a couple of songs…
H) …but bring it back in the last third.
I) Frontman Sam Carter stage dives for miles.
J) Then climbs the scaffolding.
K) Then jumps in the crowd again.
L) You can see the cleft of his arse.
M) The circle pits and general moshing is getting to a dangerous level.
N) This band may have convinced any doubters that they are the best new metal band in the UK.
O) I went home…
