Sound: Jacoby Shaddix brings a lot to the table. From the Infest record was mostly rap/reggae style vocals. Then on Lovehatetragedy he abandoned that and just kept to singing/screaming. On the new record, Getting Away With Murder, he really shows that he can sing and hit the higher notes with pleasure. Jerry Horton's guitar riffs are incredibly powerful and with the drums and bass they create an intense, energy-driving rock and roll sound. // 10

Perfomance: They came on with straight explosion opening with the heavy "Dead Cell." From that point on I knew the show was gonna be mayhem. They played a lot of new songs from Getting Away With Murder. During a new song called "Not Listening", Jacoby's mic went out so he tried the drum mic. That didn't work either. So he basically give up and started singing mic-less. He was so enthusiastic that he faced the crowd and started singing and everyone started joined along chanting the chorus "I'm not listening, not anymore." It was quite a moment. After the accident, he said "I don't need a f--ing mic!" Jacoby is amazing at getting the crowd involved in singing and moving. He did not fail this time. // 10

Overall Impression: The show was in Pittsburgh, PA, at a venue called The Rock Club. They played a Christmas show sponsored by 105.9 The X headlining with Chevelle. Tickets were only $22. A great price to see two intense rock bands. The most unforgettable moment was when Jacoby threw his mic at my face and pulled it back in a split second. I was stunned. // 10
