The anticipation built for day two, knowing a face-punching lineup was set to blast off at 5 PM sharp. Once again, I missed the day’s openers Mortiferum (sorry guys, sorry Sean) but I certainly didn’t sleep through the rest of the evening’s bands. The Barboza stage was a relentless procession of death metal and black metal bands, including Lago, Of Feather And Bone, Gloam, and headliners Primitive Man, who happen to be one of the loudest, doomiest, heaviest and skull-crushing bands on the face of the earth. Upstairs at Neumo’s, progressive black metal quartet Wild Hunt kicked things off, followed by Bay Area death metal trio Necrot, who managed to inspire the first mosh pit of the festival. Gatecreeper and Full Of Hell are some of the biggest names on today’s bill and also happen to be touring together at the moment. Both bands crushed their brief but formidable sets and couldn’t have made the punters happier. Hardcore legends Integrity topped the night with an unstoppable and unrelenting power, which also included a slew of inflatable pool toys and beach balls released into the crowd at the launch of their set. Some might say that’s not very hardcore of them, but it sure as hell brought the smiles to people’s faces.
