SAINTS OF DEATH, a band out of Vancouver which is all death/groove metal. They nailed their set well. They had the crowd going wild, and so that meant I ventured to the back of the room.
There was some pretty heavy hitting moshers in the pit, and the music just egged them into more of a frenzy. I am pretty sure band and fans worked off each other.
But I am curious, not being a musician, I am really wondering why the use of a 8 string, or 5 string bass, can you not use a guitar and tweak it to the heavy sounds. That will have to be for an interview to learn more. They sure warmed up the crowd for Trivium though.
