Charging Ahead

American Head Charge were fast, heavy, and brutal, but incredible with it. So, what the hell were they doing on a smaller stage? They were another of those really good bands that should be on the main stage, but that didn't stop them producing an amazing set. They're obviously enjoying themselves, and this really shines through.

Mixing quiet with noisy works well on 'Where Is Your Loyalty?', and the vocals just finish it off. We're loving it, they're loving it - all is good. It's almost as if the band wrote the songs to be played live, and the crowd sang along to every word.

The third song is just as heavy and rocks like a bitch. There's so much energy and inventiveness in that single song, the whole arena goes mental. AHC chop and change, attempting to keep you guessing and it works.

The fourth song has massive beats, making it impossible not to move to. Some way through that, the vocals and guitars cut out to leave the bass and drums to weave a spell. Some unnerving guitars get thrown in for good measure, but it's still positive.

The singer plays to the crowd, knowing full well the response he's going to get. Sadly enough, the set is pretty short being only 25 minutes with general confusion from everybody about the length.
