First up to take the stage at The Plaza Live in downtown Orlando was somewhat of a home state band, Eve To Adam. Having formed in Florida in the late nineties and playing many of the state’s rock venues they were no stranger to many in the crowd. When they hit the stage, there was no theatrics or… Read More

Opening bands usually get the short end of the stick with attendance, lighting house sound and energy, but The Word Alive woke up a “Sold Out” show right out of the gate. Grinding out their opener “Trapped”, red jumpsuit vocalist Telle Smith wasted no time to reach out to the fans with his engaging… Read More

Supporting the “Walk The Sky” tour, was Michigan natives Deepfall, and Sevendust’s very own, Clint Lowery. And it was amazing right out of the gate, to say the least.   As they crack open the night at the Rave, Deepfall fills the chasm of the venue with the thunderous sound of the rumbling “I’m… Read More

Manchester based band Ritual King are already warming up the audience. They show that they can deliver anthem like rock that it’s also commercial, without losing the factor that make the band so hot.

Mark is definitely a busy fellow. When not preoccupied laying down killer riffs for Lamb Of God, he’s recently developed his own eponymous solo project. His debut album “Anesthetic” came out in March 2019, featuring his signature heave-as-hell guitar. During the writing process, he was aided by… Read More

It’s been a long time since I saw Crobot and their brand of rock. The last show was at Sonic Boom in Janesville, Wi, and I really needed to see them once again. This time, I got a chance to see them in a more intimate setting, with a more mature Crobot.  Carbellion got off to a busy start of live… Read More

As a fan of old Mushroomhead, I couldn’t pass this up. Now saying that, I might as well eat those words. Waylon and crew crush everything that you would even imagine thinking that this is an ex-Mushroomhead frontman. The music just blew me away.   The led screens blasted imagery of Waylon in an… Read More

Closing on a rousing cover of the Beastie Boys… Read More

The long queue of people waiting outside going around the corner could only mean too things, ie that actually lots of people had turned up and that the doors had not opened at the appointed time and it was probably a bit of both. Gloryhammer, who were the support band, had been late to arrive, as… Read More

The rainy and miserable weather on the first night made me jokingly think the band should have opened with “It’s Gonna Rain”, but with torrents already pouring down, it might have been a bit of a self-fulfilled prophecy anyway… I ended up driving to the venue early – just to be on the safe side –… Read More
