The co-headlining duo delivers over the top performances, with support from With Our Arms To The Sun, and Chaos And Reason.
Hitting the Expo Five stage for their supportive fans, Mushroomhead opened their show with “Qwerty” and never looked back. Delivering a visually impressive set from a stage flooded with fog, lights, and splashing from their water-filled drums, Mushroomhead played fan favorites including “Sun Doesn’t Rise” and “Solitare/Unraveling.” Band members engaged in a bit of crowd surfing at several points, which got the crowd screaming for more. Capping the evening with “Empty Spaces/Born of Desire,” Mushroomhead played a high-octane and entertaining set for a very satisfied audience.
Opening with the title track from their new album Abominator, Doyle kicked off a dynamic 10-song set the crowd was clearly ready for. Featuring vocals by Alex “Wolfman” Story, their set included many other songs from their debut album including “Learn to Bleed” and “Dreaming Dead Girls.” With the crowd at a fever pitch, Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstein ripped into a hard hitting rendition of “Die Die Die My Darling” and finished their set with “Hope Hell is Warm.”
Arizona-based With our Arms to the Sun, took to the stage to an almost full room. Fresh off a supporting tour with John 5, WOATTS performed a set of performance-oriented experimental music with elements of rock, alternative, and electronica. While their music was a departure from the opening two groups, their songs were deep, soulful, and energetic and were well received.
Irvington, Kentucky group, Chaos and Reason, stormed the main stage to the cheers of many in the crowd in the second slot of the evening. Their music is heavy, loud, and energetic, and well received by the crowd.
Local Kentucky group Beyond Duplication opened the evening with a strong set of hard driving and high energy metal, setting the tone for what the rest of the evening would hold.
