ON a scale of one to 10, the energy was at a 13 at the Byron YAC on Tuesday when the Rise of Brotality Tour hit town.
The show got off to a great start with the Hellions reeling the crowd in and getting them ready for what was to come.
UK band Bury Tomorrow were embraced with their well-executed vocals impressing.
In Hearts Wake were up next and did not disappoint. From the first song of their set, Earthwalker, to their last, their hit Divine, the band gave their all for their hometown fans.
Aussie metalcore outfit IKTPQ have enjoyed a strong comeback since ending a three-year hiatus in 2011.
For their entire set the vocals of Jamie Hope and Jona Weinhofen were on the mark and the band certainly hit the mark with their fans.
The crowd really hyped up for melodic hardcore group The Ghost Inside who delivered the last set of the night.
They didn't let the fans down, playing an energetic set filled with old favourites.
They were having a lot of fun, with frontman Jonathon Vigil smiling and even allowing a fan to run up onstage and snap a selfie with him mid-way through a song.
At the end of their set, the lights came on and the doors were opened but the crowd chanted for just one more song - and eventually, the American guys gave in with a smile, whipping out one of their most loved songs, Engine 45.
