Bands That Slayed At Scion Rock Fest

Actually got in due to shitty security.
1Trash Talk

I've seen them several times before, but this was still fun. Latest vocalist is kind of shitty though.
2 Salome

Never heard this band before until this. Female-fronted black/doom metal. BM screeches were kvlt as shit.
3 Alestorm
Captain Morgan's Revenge

I stopped by for this just for laughs but it actually ended up being ridiculously fun.

Without a doubt the best act that I saw the entire day. Started off with two fun straight up psych rock songs, then "Rainbow," and then ended it with some epic droner that I hadn't heard before. It was unbelievable.
5Pig Destroyer
Phantom Limb

Not as great as I thought it would be, but still good. The mixing was kind of retarded and the samples were just really gay but it still brought the mosh.

One of the bands that I wanted to see most for whatever reason. The band was tight as hell and they ended on Energy Chasms. Enuff said.
7Wolves in the Throne Room
Two Hunters

Came on right after Krallice and fucking slayed. I had to leave toward the end of their set to catch Neurosis though.
Given To The Rising

Excellent as always, but it was kind of hard for me to enjoy it as I had not had anything to eat or drink for 10 hours and had been standing for the entire duration of the fest. I felt like I was going to faint to say the least.

After some leftover Moe's tofu burritos that tasted like ass, I saw Mastodon. Played most of the classics and a little bit of the new stuff. I'll be seeing them again in a few weeks here in Birmingham.
The Unspoken King

Shouldn't really be on this list, because this was probably the worst/most hilarious thing I've ever seen. Everyone was just kind of standing around shitting themselves in confusion over how awful it was, like they hadn't listened to anything the band has done in the past decade.
