Photos: Raised Fist perform in Brisbane

It has been four years since Raised Fist returned to Australia, but it was worth the wait.

Raised Fist are like a surgeon's scapel - precise and razor sharp, and devastating.

Their set embodied everything the band stands for including the song 'Provoke' and in what was one of the biggest audience turnouts this year at Max Watts, fans proved they loved every minute.

Before the band walked on stage you could see punters getting ready for the pit, nervous energy coursing through their veins.

Vocalist Alexander Hagman peppered the set with commentary about human rights, equality and fairness while prowling the stage like a caged tiger.

There is also probably no other front man that can jump as high as in him in the world at the moment.

Thundering bass, chainsaw guitars and rapid fire vocals all lent themselves to a strong mix of punk, hardcore and metal that have become Raised Fist's signature sound.
