The set has alot of bass all the way thru, to some complaints of the crowd(well from the girls toilets so i hear), the set is filled with energy but sadly its pretty much by the numbers metalcore, ten a penny if you will, a catchy chorus every now an then but disapointingly for this bunch of nice lads this doesnt carry them past the first two rows of the crowd, there pretty raw and show some promise, maybe abit more time on the road will carry them to the back of the room.

This is a fantastic set from a band who have been going for 15 or so years and from the way they bounced, head banged, ran around the stage they show no sign of letting up, Crowd Participation seems to be the aim of the game tonite as the crowd regualry fills in on the vocals and for one lucky fan whos name i cant remember, got to sing Destroy the map on stage with the band, once in life time for that guy.many of the songs has the crowd jumping fists in the air and theres even a wall of death(thought those were outlawed), the crowd is buzzing by the end of the set as they finish off with slit wrists as the encore, the crowd is spending its last bit of energy singing along, a good gig from a experienced band and from which the support acts can learn from. great night!
