 Friends Never Came, Counted Among Saints and Lock N’ Load but arrived  in time for the end of an intense set of metal tinged rock from Calgary’s X Ray Cat.

The Calgary  trio had the hardcore sound down along the lines of Cancer Bats  and Black Flag.

After a quick changeover,  headliners Vancouver based thrash metal band the Golers  (Inbred Militia).


The Golers combined different styles of metal.


 The had huge detuned riffs from two guitars. Their vocals combined unearthly shrieks and menacing death metal growls. The guitar solos featured  a touch of ’80s shred with fretboard tapping and intense energy.


 The deadly combination sparked a ferocious mosh pit in front of the stage which had to work around musicians and monitors on the dance floor. It had petered out by middle of set as they wore themselves out from pushing, shoving and slamming into each other.
