Not often does a night split itself into extremes as much as this. Opening act Hammers start the night painfully dull for such a crushingly heavy band and, whilst anything but dull, following act Iron Will’s haphazard set leaves you wondering if it is deliberate that they sound so incredibly out of time from one another. No surprise then that they announce to the waiting crowd that they are looking for a new drummer.
Okkultokrati begin to pick up things with a spooky, sludgy set, which was genuinely impressive, despite their frontman appearing to be a poster for the campaign against meth. Nonetheless, arms stay folded until Kylesa’s dual drums kick in, energetically paced, yet melodic. Outplaying all three bands of the night, they end changing pace with a haunting and surprisingly beautiful tune which surprisingly rings in the ears long after the end of the night.
