Sound: Ben Read was a vocal master piece on the night giving a truely spectacular sound to the performance. It was sort of hard to tell what guitars they were using but they looked a lot like ESP and they were using 100 watt Marshall 4 cab with Messa boogie head units. The sound for every band that played on the night was amazing, there was the odd song where the the vocals were semi lost but other than that it was an amazing night. // 10

Perfomance: In the small venue which they played the crowd was surging and the pits were intense, everyone was singing/screaming along and having a thoroughly good time. The songs they played were pretty much their best tracks. 01.Emancipate 02.Thumbs, Eye sockets, Love 03.Hate Made Me 04.8 Foot Sativa 05.Sleep Walkers 06.Season For Assault 07.Breed The Pain 08.Chelsea Smile 09.Believer All songs were so much more amazing and brutal when they were played live, couple of songs I wished they played were For Religions to Suffer and I Live My Deat. The most amazing moments were being in the thick of the circle pits and when Ben did the "quiet" scream for Sleep Walkers, instead of making the scream quiet in the mic he did at the top of his lungs without the mic and the whole crowd went silent for it then went nuts after he'd picked the mic up again. // 10

Overall Impression: The gig took place in New Zealand, Christchurch, at the bedford on 26/09/09. There were 4 opening acts: Plague of the Fallen, Messing with a Sasquatch, Tainted and another band that I'm unsure of their name. I loved the fact that there was so much variety but it would've been better if each band had played one or two more songs each. Tickets were $15NZ so it was more than worth the money. The one thing I wont forget is the kids in the all ages area getting destroyed in the pit by surging walls of skin heads, anywhere local I'd gladly go and see them again no matter ticket price. // 10
