FROM GREAT HEIGHT
Stunning old school prog with a modern metal twist.Lead singer Adam all dressed in white with face paint was a dead ringer for Peter Gabriel and has the vocals to match, but they are no genesis clones, these guys have their own sound and went down a storm.They also did a killer version of Pink Floyd's "In The Flesh".

MAN OF KIN
The heaviest damn metal band around at the moment, they dont so much of take to the stage as launch a full on assault!
Mixing old songs with new ones from the debut album "Lock & Load" they play their very souls out on stage to a packed venue eager to remove dandruff at great speed.

The awesome track "Primitive" erupts the place complete with a guest vocal from Feral's Martin.
Fun was also on the agenda as the band were clearly loving every second and they threw in a metal medley mixing Slayer/Megadeth and Metallica amongst others.

XENOCHORD
Part death part Prog mixed with pure energy, they came they played they slayed.To be honest this band get better every time i see them (Which is a lot).With loads of headbanging fans down the front and songs called "Absinthe" you just cannot go wrong.

FERAL
Tonight they played an extraordinary set comprising of every song they have with added covers.You dont often go to medium sized venues let alone big venues and see a crowd this happy and this excited.

Numerous friends joined them on stage as well as members of Man Of Kin and Muted playing on covers of metallica songs and some of their own.

Just a totally fun end to one of the most enjoyable evening for a long time.Even a drum malfunction with the pedal beater going right through the bass drum couldnt slow this evening down.
No video from Feral's set as the whole thing was filmed for a promotional video currently being worked on.
