Texas-based Power Trip got the show started off on a great opening set full of heavy breakdowns and great guitar riffs. Following Power Trip, San Francisco's Deafheaven played a 45 minute set that was heavy on the black metal with some really esoteric passages reminiscent of shoegaze music popular over the last few years. It was a decidedly different sound from Power Trip and what would follow with Anthrax.
Anthrax, one of the forefathers of thrash metal is still doing it after nearly 35 years touring in support of their upcoming album "For All Kings". The band hit on several classics as well as two tracks off the upcoming album. Unfortunately, Charlie Benante was unable to make this leg of the tour due to ongoing carpal tunnel related issues so Jon Dette filled in on drums.
Headlining the night was Lamb of God. The band covered much of their catalog hitting many fan favorites as well as several tracks from their latest release "VII: Sturm und Drang".
