Although there were some hiccups at the last minute with some bands having to change their venue and others having issues with health and family, we did at one point wonder if the night would go ahead at all. But go ahead it did and what a night! All of the bands, some of which travelled a very long way, put on fantastic performances and really pulled off a wonderful evening of music. Our apologies to the bands who were affected with the issues surrounding the evening, we really hope that we will see you in Sheffield again soon.
Here is our very quick photo round up, showcasing some of the photos taken of the evening. You can see the full set on the photos page.
Their set was full of energy and enthusiasm. They played a number of great tracks from their recent album Beast Inside as well as some from earlier demo releases. We have seen Control The Storm perform before, but in the smaller South Sea venue their performance was captivating and intense; really blew us away.
We are really looking forward to hearing the new material Soul Shredder are working on at the moment and seeing them perform at the next Black Mass and Femetalism presents ... evening in August.
The band clearly found it strange performing with "Dell" instead of a real musician, but they really put on a fantastic show; made even more special by their insistence on playing despite the obvious issues. We thoroughly enjoyed seeing their album tracks performed live and loved their banter in between songs and with their interaction with the crowd. A band we look forward to seeing again, with their full compliment of actual humans!
