Really quick reaction to some of the first day’s stuff as I’ve got loads to write about.

Staind = boring.

Billy Talent = Ben Kowalewicz’s voice

sounded dodgy on the first couple of songs, improved on Rusted in the Rain and was good thereafter. Storming set overall, with Fallen Leaves and Red Flag going down particularly well.

Killswitch Engage = Crowd sang along on everything, threatening to drown out the band at times. First three albums’ songs still sounded much better than last two, although newer ones sounded much better live than on the recordings. Crowd went mental throughout especially during Rose of Sharyn and End of Heartache.
