Hevy Festival – Friday 15th August | Live Review

Hevy Festival made it’s return this year; and it was glorious. Check out what we thought of the first day of the festival.

Third Stage

Empire

From the land of the South West comes Empire, equipped with energy, swagger and bloody good music. They graced the stage full of the usual pizazz (including some impressive dancing from frontman Joe Green) whilst providing big melodies, unique vocals and enough punch to kill a man. Although they played to a minimal crowd, their complex and undefinable sound did not falter. Even during a technical issue, the band powered through a delivered a set above and beyond their placing on Hevy’s line-up. 4.5/5 LH

Devil Sold His Soul

Pulling in one of the largest crowds of the day so far, Devil Sold His Soul did their fans proud. Their combo of intense instrumentals, heavy percussion and throaty breakdowns saw plenty of head bangs and body flails. Unfortunately, some of the clean vocals were drowned out by the instrumentals, but the ferocity came across nonetheless. Ending on ‘Hope’, they truly proved their worth within the ranks of the UK post-hardcore scene. 4.5/5 LH
