Sunday funday at Hermans Hideaway with five of Denver’s loudest bands, mixed with Colorado best metal crowd (community) made for a great way to end the weekend
Denver’s own live music promoter Metal on the Move presented Attack of the Titans featuring Son Survivor, Fallen and Forgotten, Smack Factor, Last Savior of God and Modern Weapons.
Unfortunately I missed the first band Fallen and Forgotten but have heard good things about this hard rock/metal band and look forward to seeing them live hopefully soon.
Son Survivor came out next with guns blazing. Their sound was melodic and full of thrash. The drum sound was punchy and tight, the dual guitars had a unique sound of clean tones mixed with distorted riffs and dive-bombed squeals that sounded really well together. The lead and backing vocals combined screams and vocal melodies that came together perfectly. As it was the bass player Rob’s birthday that night, it was fun to see everyone having a great time on stage. Im looking forward to hearing more from these guys.
Next up, SmackFactor. In your face thrash. spine crushing riffs, a thunderous and progressive bass, searing vocals and a massive drum kit that looked like it was ready to launch. A lot of groovy riffs that you can just headband to and lose yourself. A very talented group of musicians.
Colorado Springs death metal group Last Savior of God came out with blast beats and progressive riffs that rip your face off. Combined with sub-human vocals this made for just a great reason to just jump in the pit and mosh. Head bangers heaven with a power groove feel mixed with some clean tone breaks. Their performance stepped it up as the bass and guitar players jumped into the crowd and kept on shredding without missing a beat. Well done fellas.
Closing the night came Modern Weapons with their unique sound of metal mixed with video game sound elements. Enter Gamer Metal. A very cool and unique take on live music. Extremely energetic and interactive with the crowd. I loved the 8-bit intros and tones as the songs were executed throughout the night. Searing music with soaring vocals really make this band stand out. These guys aren’t going away anytime soon and that make me happy.
