Thrash and Burn Your Way With The Most Chaotic Tour On Earth

Written By: Natalie Perez

Ring a around a rosy, pockets full of posies ashes, ashes, we all get thrashed and burned by the second annual Thrash and Burn Tour 2009. With a line-up of hardcore and heavy metal acts alike, all joining in to befriend one another, to make this tour be one you shall not want to forget. The second night kicked off without a hitch blowing the roof off the house at Hollywood’s House of Blues on the Sunset Strip, gathering metal fans of all sorts, sizes, and ages. The whole package was gathered at this night’s night of metal festivities.

The stage was set and the fans waited in anticipation for the show to begin. Kicking it all off were heavy metallers, Thy Will Be Done. Throwing together a 20 minute set consisting of tracks found upon their latest release “In Ancient of Days,” the crowd became wide as the audience cheered and shouted with utter excitement.

Next up came Periphery, screaming until their voices went horse, the crowd getting more into the thrill of what was later to be unleashed. As the night continued to roll right along, Oceano broke the silence a little more, getting the mosh pit pumping in circular motion, if not having people being thrown in the air, and if not drinking, to the beat of the music. Banging their heads as hard as possible, these guys were just as entertaining as the first set.

My Children My Bride was up next, keeping the crowd’s energy impacted; thrusting racing, screaming emotion from each song – Veil Of Maya, was the last of the opening acts to scream and shout their way into the spotlight, as the stage cleared, leaving the rest of the night in the hands of the Headlining bands, Despised Icon, Emmure, and of course headliners, DevilDriver.

California’s own DevilDriver, rounded off the night, throwing out a lot of old, recent, and newer material each and every way they could imagine possible. From opening up with their classic “End of the Line,” right into “Not All Who Wander Are Lost,” “I Could Care Less,” “Clouds Over California,” down to much newer material off their most recent release “Pray For Villains.” That set included “Back With a Vengeance,” “I’ve Been Sober,” down to the title track.

It all rounded up to the main song that causes utter destruction every time it’s played, “Meet The Wretched.”

Causing a brutalizing uproar of utter chaos alone, getting the entire crowd with adrenaline just sweating their glands onto the skin’s surface screaming, headbanging, spinning, it was madness everywhere you looked. Yes it was.
