After a short break from touring, All That Remains hits the road starting in Cleveland with special guest, Avatar.
Like Monroe started off the night by coming out to spread the word about their soon to be released debut album, Things We Think But Never Speak. Like Monroe has been making a name for themselves leading up to their first album by getting into line ups such as, Never Say Never Fest and Warped Tour. They are going on tour in October with Eyes Set To Kill.
Through their set they grew a connection with the crowd and seemed to gain a few fans in the process. Look out for these guys in hopes to see them joining bigger festivals in the future.
After the opener was Avatar all the way from Gothenburg, Sweden. Since their stop at Rock On The Range, Avatar has been gaining a huge following in the States. Many of the fans in attendance were there specifically to see Avatar and experience their live show.
The band played fan favorites starting the night off with “Hail The Apocalypse” and finishing off with “Smells Like A Freakshow.” Avatar lead singer Johannes Eckerstrom riled up the headbangers, crowd surfers, and moshers as the number of people in the pit seemed to grow throughout their set due to his onstage antics. Overall, Avatar has never failed to put on an great show.
Avatar will continue touring the states with different acts such as Rob Zombie, Mushroomhead, and Korn. Be sure to go on their website for some dates come to a venue near you.
All That Remains hit the stage with a huge bang to start off their return, security working for their money as they caught crowd surfers. They played songs from their albums, For We Are Many, The Fall of Ideals, Overcome, and A War You Cannot Win. You could see how much the band had missed the stage by their smiles, laughs, and how they talked to fans in between the breaks of the songs.
Through the middle of their set, they seemed to play some of their mellower songs such as, “What If I Was Nothing” and “Asking Too Much.” The fans seemed to approve the change for what may have been a test for future shows. But following this diversion, All That Remains picked right back up by ending the show with their two fan favorites, “The Calling” and “Two Weeks.” The band, being nearly 15 years old, has not lost any steps and are still amazing.
