This past weekend, in the booming metropolis that is Worcester, MA., over 4000 metal and hardcore fans congregated at the Palladium for a weekend of fucking loud music. Starting Friday (Apr 5th) @ 3pm, people packed in to see over 50 bands play on 2 stages during the course of the next 48 hours. Though only one Roadrunner act played the festival – Killswitch Engage. (1) For the third year running, Killswitch Engage played the festival – for the first time, they played the main stage. Friday night at 8:30pm, it all started for KsE. Like something out of an old NYC Biohazard show during the Urban Discipline era, the sides of the stage were packed – filled with the likes of Shadows Fall & Poison The Well, among other acts, and friends. Interesting fact: though one could not tell, vocalist Jesse, whom had been sick for a couple days before the show, actually puked on the side of the stage during the set. Rock. Pictures from the Killswitch Engage set can be found online at www.ReturnToThePit.com. Next up for KsE, hitting the road with Candiria in the US, and yours truly will be checking that tour out on Sunday 14th April in S Amboy, New Jersey – live photos to come….oh, and a great lil’ fuckin’ album by the name of Alive Or Just Breathing in stores starting May 20th. (2) Overcast. KsE bassist Mike D hit the stage with his previous band, Overcast. Mike, apparently wearing a big, shit eatin’ grin on his face during this one night reunion set, played with ex-Overcast alumni Brian (current Shadows Fall vocalist) and Pete, whom originally played guitar for KsE.
