Today sees the return of people to Cardiff’s students union during the Easter holidays for Bury Tomorrow‘s Welsh leg of their UK headline tour!
By the time I arrive at the venue, Black Peaks are halfway through their set and have the crowd entertained with their energetic stage presence. The band sound on top form so I’m sad that I didn’t get to see their full set.
Crossfaith take to the stage to rapturous applause and from the very start, have the crowd eating out of the palm of their hand. They are a band that admittedly, I hadn’t really listened to prior to the gig, only vaguely knowing some of their more well-known tracks, however, I left a fan, completely won over by their electronicore material. Pits open up throughout the set and frontman Kenta even got into the crowd at the end of the set. You can see several people with jagerbombs during Jagerbomb (I mean, you just have to!) The energy they bring is phenomenal and there didn’t seem to be a fault during any of the set.
Bury Tomorrow hit the stage to close up a really good night. Straight off the bat, they get into The Eternal and its track after track of pure brilliance from the Southampton lads. It’s loud, heavy and in your face, the way metalcore should be. There isn’t a person in the crowd who is not captivated by the sheer brilliance that is seen on stage.
