British metalcore Kings Bury Tomorrow begin their ‘Union Of Crowns‘ headline tour tonight, and what better way to start than with a huge hometown show at The Mo’Club. This is the kind of venue that these boys should be filling out, and tonight’s turnout is the final bit of proof for any one resisting a membership to Team BT.

Although Heart In Hand and Empress raise the temperature a little, it only really starts to get warm when Feed The Rhino take to the stage. Smashing in with their blistering, yet groovy onslaughts, the crowd have no choice but to chug down their beers and pay attention. The likes of ‘Tides’ and ‘Flood The System’ take hold and don’t let go until sufficient mosh has occurred, but there is never any doubt that the crowd would do the performance justice.

The evening gets a whole lot sweatier when Bury Tomorrow arrive, setting the room alight with ‘Redeemer’. Despite good sets from all the supports, the gulf in quality is continually prised wider and wider as they churn out tune after tune, from radio-friendly ‘An Honourable Reign’ to the insanely fast ‘Abdication of Power’. It has been a while since BT have played a set of this length, so it’s a pleasant surprise to see tracks such as ‘Confessions’ and ‘Evolution of Self’ make a long overdue return on the setlist sheet. The crowd go just as wild for them, as well, which shows their loyal fans are not just riding on the hype of their latest singles.

Fittingly, it’s left to ‘Lionheart’ to round off the night in style. It’s the one track that sums up their journey from basement clubs to Festival Main Stages, while the deliverance justifies their place in charge of a room this size. With one show down and 8 still to go, we assure you that the rest of the UK are in for a treat over the next week.
