Along with Airbourne, Arcanium and Chiodos brought the noise in support of Bullet For My Valentine at The Pageant last Friday. Both bands worked the stage like expert sonic metallurgists, but for some reason they did much of their work in near darkness. The only thing more brutal than the bands’ sound was the incredibly dim lighting. It’s always a shame to see bands exert so much energy when no one can see it. I’d rather see a metal band blow up under plain white light than thrash about in the darkness any day.
In any case, I massaged some shots out of the Nikon D700.
