There are good things happening for the Lethbridge’s music scene in the local high schools as a Nov. 21 all ages gig at the Moose Hall will attestLock N’ Load. Photo by Richard Amery
Local hard rock  band Eyes of Isis, who brought a few of their friends on stage to share the bill with them for their CD release party.
I arrived in the midst of sizzling and super tight first gig for  hot new metal band, Lock N’ Load. They were equal parts Metallica, Judas Priest, Zakk Wylde  with a dash of Nashville Pussy and they had the crowd, consisting of almost as many parents as youth, screaming for more.
 They played for an hour and were called back for an encore of Judas Priest‘s “Hellbent For Leather” and Pantera’s “Cowboys From Hell.”Eyes of Isis Photo By Richard Amery
A unique punk band called Gender Bender were next. The singer in a  red sequined jacket and a backwards hat exclaimed “What a Treat!” in between pretty much each demented song.
Eyes of Isis closed off on a smoke filled stage as lasers and flashing light beams shot through the hall which helped set the classic rock vibe they successfully set. They were tight , rehearsed, and lead singer Jordan Davidson beamed ear to ear throughout their set which included lots of big hooks, riffs and catchy songs. It even included a  lower tempo  ballad type song which had the audience flaring up lighters.
