By 21.00 o clock everyone was there.People , most of them youngsters , wearing Metalcore T-shirts , drinking beers,smoking and talking.After a big delay (1hour) ,the gates were open and everybody got inside.\r\n

\r\nSome minutes passed , with the fans drinking beers and buying stuff from the merchandise bench when the first band appeared on stage.-Juliet was a pornstar- were about to start this night and everyhting was ready.The greek band started their setlist and the place got psyched immediately!!
\r\nThe stage was on fire while these youngsters started attacking with their Deathcore  riffs and their unstoppable headbanging.Great vocal performing and an excellent drummer.-Juliet was a pornstar - managed to pass their energy to the audience without having the best possible sound but the result was great!! Moshpits, stagedivings and a lot of sweat. They played many of their songs and gave to the people a good taste of their music ideas. They finished their show  after 40 minutes and managed to make a great intro to this special night.\r\n

\r\nTime was about 23.00 and the Sin City club now  was half full.The second greek band, -Unmasking the Betrayer - , with no delay, hit the stage and people started to cheer and gave a warm welcome to the band. From the very first song the fans  started  moshpits and stagediving and  the band responded with killing riffs,insane drumming and a lot of good music ideas. Mixing Deathcore, Hardcore and Progressive Metal.The vocalist gave his best with nice Deathcore screams and brutal voices and all together managed to finish a show ,playing many of their songs and some great covers.-Unmasking the Betrayer- played for about 40 minutes and succeed to show their teeth to the Metalcore scene with a little better sound than the last band.They left the stage so -Emmure- can continue the night.\r\n

\r\nAfter some minutes , -Emmure- hit the stage and after a quick welcome intro from mr.Palmeri the band started their setlist and the fans got crazy!! The band started to play some old songs but they also played a lot of their fresh stuff ,reaching high performance and better sound than all previous bands.Great Deathcore riffs, very nice drumming and a great performance from mr.Palmeri. The moshpit now was bigger and you could see fans climbing each other, people stagediving, psychos hanging from above,elbows to faces and many other alive activities.The band managed to complete a great playlist with no problems and the fans loved every minute of it. -Emmure- was absolute great and they succed to please every single fan. Everyone was asking for more but the band left so -Caliban- can finish this Metalcore night.\r\n

\r\nThe german Deathcore Metalheads showed up and the whole club was screaming their name.They started their setlist including old and new songs. The sound was good and you could enjoy -Caliban-’s show much better than their last show in Greece (supporting Kreator).Great guitars and bass themes, power drumming and mr. Doner showing his frontman skills,singing,screaming, sharing the mic with the fans and stagedive to their heads.The place was about to explode and you could the feel the tense and the energy that this band always succeed to give in their concerts.The fans screamed their lungs out, some of them got hurt , some of them damaged their necks for the rest three days but at the end everyone was happy with a big smile in the face.-Caliban-pleased their fans by suggesting songs and letting the fans choose wich song should they play and managed to complete a great setlist with no problems.\r\n

\r\nIt was a night full of tense,sweat,stagedivings,moshpits,walls of death and everyhting that a great Metalcore event includes. The highlights of the night were the dymanic presence of the greek bands with my personal preferance for the greek drummers , the great tense of Emmure and the professional performance of -Caliban-.The bad things of the night was sure the one hour delay that is always hard for a Sunday night, the fact that the club doesn’t offer free water for the fans ,but the worst thing is that the average age that apparts the Metalcore scene is between 16-25 years old. The older ones seems that they dont like this scene and they don’t support this kind of concerts. The Metalcore audience in Greece is not very big but the truth its that its there , its alive and the last years is growing stronger. All the bands and people tonight in the club, prooved that they can easy transform a boring Sunday night into a raging Metalcore party!!\r\n
