Pool Party - Always fun. The room fucking EXPLODED for the Hatebreed cover. I really enjoyed the new song.
Full Force - Same as always.
Downpour - Bad set, stood in the corner and texted. The whole set sounded sloppy. I thought this band was supposed to heavy, and they were not heavy at all.
Never Lose Heart - Great set. Justin's vocals get me every time.
Thin Ice - American Nightmare cover at the beginning RULED. Other than that, the vocals didn't really seem to fit the music, and some of the songs were sloppy. The bass player was terrible.
Full of Hell - I missed this whole set, except for the last 30 seconds of the last song. Bummer, because everyone said this band was awesome. From what I heard, the vocals sounded really good. Would have moshed.
STS - Pretty heavy. Not bad.
Most Ill - Sucks they had to play on the floor. Glad they made the most of it though, and those were probably the biggest pile-ons I've ever seen at the Brickhouse. Awesome set though.
Mother of Mercy - SO FUCKING GOOD. This is the band I really wanted to see. Bob's vocals are probably my favorite of any current hardcore band. Moshed really hard.
Cruel Hand - Always a great live band. I was really disappointed with the second half of their set though. They opened with the first 4 songs (in order) off Prying Eyes, which ruled. Got a lot of mic grabs. But then they just seemed to play...not as good songs. And they didn't play anything old. I really wanted to hear Fact or Fiction. But still good.
Bracewar - Welp, this was about my 8th time seeing them. Always fun live, they put on a really good show.
Dead Icons - I was way too tired to care. Saw this band once before, wasn't really impressed. But last night they sounded a lot better/heavier than I remembered. Not bad. Still was way too tired from all the mosh to care.
- Lots of mosh, fun night overall.
- Burger King with Jacob and Mike T afterward.
- OBITUARY SHIRT, THANKS DORI!
- GOT A FUCKING SPEEDING TICKET ON THE WAY BACK TO ATHENS
I was going 18 over, so that's probably gonna be at least 150 bucks. Fuck.
