Kicking of the November 3rd, 2014 show was Huntress. The heavy metal band reigning from California fronted by Jill Janus. The bands style takes influences from thrash and doom metal with traces of Janus’ opera training. The set was nothing extraordinary but yet was great kick off for the show. With a smaller catalogue then the rest of the bands, most of the set was picked of their newest album Starbound Beast. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c1OltqVcr1Q). The bands energy helped warm up the crowd.
Following up was Kreator hailing from Germany, is credited next to Destruction and Sodom for pioneering Death Metal and making it what it is today. WIth several name changes; Tyrant when the first formed in 1982, then Tormentor in 1984 and finally settling on the name Kreator after that. Their current style of Trash and Speed metal was well in play during the show. Most of their set was taken from the last couple albums; Phantom Antichrist (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EApMitnsXgg).
Headlining the show was no other then Arch Enemy. This Swedish band currently headed by Alissa White-Gluz (ex The Agonist). As the name of the tour War Eternal, kind of made most of their set obvious from the newer album (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=InRMwptcgAo). Tho this being the bands first album with the new White-Gluz. Theres still been some backlash towards her and her style that she brought to the band. Personally I’m excited for the future of the band and see where Alissa will lead it.
