Answer To None Debut Leaves Packed House Stunned
In keeping with my reviews of last year, I’ll be bringing you the best bands, concerts, and tours that will kick your ass without breaking your bank account.
This night was the debut of Answer To None with former members of great Arizona band Gridlokt. Also on the bill this night were five of the hard-hitting bands in Arizona, featuring lontime metalers Grudgeholder, You Apart, Failing The Sick, Banus, and Forsaken.
First up this night was new metal/hardcore band Failing The Sick, with former members of Sanity In Death. They came out and exploded on the audience, complete with double lead harmonies, thumping rhythm section, and a great lead vocalist who paced the stage like a caged animal. Their set was short but killer, with great audience response.
Next up was touring metal act Banus and they didn’t disappoint. These guys had the audience head-banging and moshing their entire set. Their music is a real blend of a few different genres of metal, but it all meshes together nicely into one cohesive sound, making for a great set.
Third up was the band Forsaken minus bassist, but these guys didn’t skip a beat. Their sound is like a very young Lamb of God. They cruised through their set with reckless abandon and got a great audience response.
Fourth up was You Apart. They Proceeded to kick the crowd's ass and completely blow the roof off the venue. Vocalist Nick Armstrong even gave the audience their choice of songs to end their set with, and the crowd chose "Behind Closed Eyes." The song is one of their best, and the band always kicks it up a notch when they play it. It was a high energy performance out of a great Arizona band.
Now it was time for the band everyone has been waiting for: Answer To None, with former members of Gridlokt. They came out and hard and heavy, whipping the pit into a moshing frenzy. During the song "Ocean of Truth," guitarist Marc Miller broke out some incredible melodic lead work that had the crowd mesmerized. They ended their set with about 75 fans on stage, diving to guitarist Craig Antz’s cue, looking like a human waterfall cascading off the stage. It was an amazing sight and impressive set from this great new band. Do yourselves a favor and check these guys out on their myspace site.
Headlining this show was 15-year metal veterans Grudgeholder. Their rhythm section was tight this night and the band crushed the crowd from beginning to end. The Song "Tweakers and Thieves" got great response from the audience and it’s easy to see why they’ve been together for 15 years.
Overall, this was a great show and if you get a chance to see any of these bands, please do. You’ll see a great show that won’t break your bank account.
