This was an all-out amazing show. Houston Based Hard Rock/Industrial Scream at
the Sky began with a great set which is always to be expected from this hard-working
and popular band that went on touring even during the depths of the pandemic.
Listen to a track at their Bandcamp and check out their new release on Spotify for a
taste of them.
This band just announced a tour for the whole of October.
Stitched Up Heart, who have toured with the likes of Godsmack, Halestorm, In This
Moment, performed songs of their sophomore album Darkness, which came out this
past Spring 2020 with additional tracks. Alecia "Mixi" Demner is a great singer as
well as a dynamic performer – and she is beautiful. She rocked the stage and threw
in her own guitar playing. The band plays together flawlessly. Watch the 2020 Video
My Demon. The UK has a treat coming to them with their tour in the UK with Fozzy
and the Treatment beginning in November.
Infected Rain is from Moldovia and has been together since 2008. If you check
out their website you can read all about the singer Lena’s tenacity in developing the
current vocal range she has. This is their first time for this metal brilliance to come to
USA- It was quite heart-stopping to see both her energy and listen to that voice along
with the pace of the band. Facebook exploded with Infected Rain during and after
the show. The tour is still ongoing so to get a taste of this before they go home, go
support this tour.
Most of Houston is in love with the Butcher Babies so this was a big one for the
fans and venue. This was their first tour since the pandemic hit and even although
they were two-thirds through an ambitious tour they were on top of their game. Heidi
Shepherd and Carla Harvey burst onto the stage with the kind of energy most people
would dream of having – however it was contagious! The band played songs from
their acclaimed debut album, “Goliath” released in 2013 via Century Media
Records with recent hit singles and new material. They worked the crowd and gave
an entire, vivid generous burst of all their music without a hitch. The show left a sort
of breathless surprise and delight in its wake. Super excited to see they will be at
Bloodstock festival in 2022. The UK won’t know what hit them!
