Simply put, Story Of The Year killed at Pointfest. The hometown heroes had the crowd on their side before they played a note, and guitarist Philip Taylor had already kicked much ass with his side project Greek Fire on the other stage (photos coming soon).
But when SOTY fired their first barrage, the crowd answered back and all hell broke loose. As a metalhead music photographer I was in hog heaven. Oh, and if the music thing doesn’t work out this quintet might make one hell of a basketball team: they all have some serious hang time.
