Sourblood opened the night of competition with their Metal Core/Baller Core/Mountain Metal tunes. The band is from Columbus, Ohio.  They gave a very powerful perfomance and attracted a crowd after they had just begun playing. They gave it their all and it was a fantastic set to start off the night.

The Battle

What more fitting for The Battle of the Bands than to have a band named The Battle!  As soon as they began we were all blown away by their original, unique musical compositions.  What set them apart was that everything they played was pure instrumental.  From the moment they began they had everyone’s attention because their sound was very different and the lack of vocals was at first shocking but as they played you realised that in this case vocals were not necessary.  What they brought to the stage was heavily intense and captivating.

Bittersweet Revenge

Bittersweet Revenge hit us hard and heavy.  These guys reside in Cleveland, Ohio and pack a punch onstage! The band as a whole brought such fun and energy to the stage. During one of their rock sessions Marc, the lead vocalist had departed from the stage and belted out within the crowd interacting closely and were greatly impressive.  The guys put on a fantastic set.

After The Ashes

After The Ashes is definitely a Metalcore band, who hails from Bellevue, Ohio. This young band leaves no-holds barred as they bring the attitude and spunk to their performance. With two vocalists often sharing the spotlight, there’s never a dull moment with these men. Their sound was solid and the energy was high ending the night with yet again a great Battle for the books!
