PiercingMetal Thoughts: Truth be told, outside of the radio hits from the group, I’ve never really followed them but I do have a contingent among my friends circle that absolutely love what they are all about. For their sake I am glad to find the band doing this kind of concert over the waves because with the current state of affairs all the musicians need to think outside of their personal box.
