Admittedly, I didn’t know much about them. Heard a good buzz and decided to check them out. These guys straight out brink the rock and punch you in the face with it. They most certainly don’t lack energy in the least bit. The lead singer, Brent Smith, stood perched at the very front and center of the stage and sang with the utmost conviction. This band is as solid as they come.
