Following behind them was Villies who had a very professional sound, using great group dynamics and mixing clean vocals, screams and all the instruments perfectly together. We also said good-bye to Tina Grey, who after two years played their final show at Fowlers Live. Rocking it out for one last time in their home town of Adelaide the boys went out with a bang and a mad mosh pit, we will deeply miss these boys being up on stage and we thank them for the time we had to see them!
After our farewells we had Elegist rock the stage with their own style of rock. A great sound, awesome lighting effects and emotion you could just feel in the air you breathe in while banging your head to the beat. You have to be there to understand so go grab a ticket to see these Sydney boys next time they're there!
Back to the local boys, Adelaide's Briarcliff took hold of the mic and drum sticks next. These guys know how to rock! All rocking out to the music they created an atmosphere which would keep any crowd coming back again and again. Oceans Grove was on next, although not all of Oceans Grove, after for unknown reasons guitarist Matthew Kopp was unable to play. This didn't stop the boys after grabbing Matthew Henley from Hands Like Hope to play in his place. The boys rocked their set and even gifted us with a new song called 'BLUD' which they were playing for the first time live.
From sound check until the last song played this band from Sydney had the crowd taken, granted it was the biggest crowd of the night, pulling everybody from around the venue to watch them play. Not only playing great music, but they put on a great stage show. Rocking out together and with the crowd Graves are easily an Australian must see!
