Sound 4/5

The first song was uncomfortably loud, but it’s metal so they’re doing their jobs. The next few songs completely made up for rocky beginnings.The second track really showcased the front man’s impressive vocal range. The drummer was a powerhouse and proved to be very skillful. I was impressed

Performance 5 /5

I wasn’t sure I was going to love them, their first song was a little overwhelming, by the second song that all changed and found myself completely enthralled. They are super energetic and completely engaging. I was also really impressed by their multi-talented keyboardist. He truly surpassed proficiency on all counts.

Professionalism 4/5

They seem much put-together and perfectly rehearsed. Although, the lead singer admitted mid-set “I don’t know what’s going on. I just wait for them (the band) to start playing.” If he didn’t say that I would have never known, they look like old pros to me in all other instances.

Aesthetic 5/5

The bands image really matches the music and completely enhanced the set. Their eclectic fashion choices well matched the spontaneity of their psychedelic musical experience.

Authenticity 5/5

Authentic, rowdy and take your top off exciting. They were fun to watch and I hope to see the progression of their careers in music.

Total: 23/25

Final Grade: 92%
