Contrive are sh**e. The only reason that they get all of those sweet supports is that their c***ing drummer is the DJ on the only nationally broadcast metal program in the country.

Yep Contirve sure did suck, but it didn't matter 'cos I don't think anyone expected any different from them, but omg did machine head f***ing go off! that was amazing. Awesome pit and awsome music for almost two hours. With a few covers to top it off like War for Territory, Walk and Reign in Blood that was f***ing insane.
Come back soon fellas!!Please!!
