One of the more epic and atmospheric bands of the line-up today, Coheed & Cambria, may be slightly too technical and a band with songs you need to think about too much for the booze intoxicated crowd on the festival’s Sunday afternoon.

All the way from Alaska, alternative metal heads 36 Crazyfists came along to Donington, and with it not being their first time they should surely know what this type of crowd wants and how they should give it to them. With a setlist containing newer material from their recently released album such as ‘We Gave It Hell’, and older material such as ‘At The End Of August’ and ‘Bloodwork’, the band pull-off each moment of their show with skill and grace, to the point where they almost of the crowd before them in the palm of their hands.

It’s just coming up to the Download Festival weekend, and what better way to prepare than a tour featuring three bands on the festival line-up, appropriately called ‘The Road To Download’. With all three bands; Alesana, The Devil Wears Prada, and A Day To Remember being rather loud and not the kind of thing you’d hear on the radio, you can expect this night to be an explosive one.

Manchester Club Academy fills with what is a sold out show for Reuben‘s first headlining tour of 2008, to promote the ‘TwoByThree’ EP release, split with tonight’s two support acts. With a fanbase as dedicated as the one Reuben holds, you know that any show this band plays is going to be something special in one way or another.

Rating:

The main act for tonight’s show, The Rocket Summer, sadly had to cancel their performance due to the one and only member Bryce becoming too ill to perform. However, those who are fans of support acts Between The Trees and The Secret Handshake weren’t to walk away disappointed, as they still played… and for free too.

Tennessee pop-punk rockers Paramore have just embarked on their UK RIOT! tour, and decided to bring along their friends New Found Glory and Conditions. After their first show of the tour last night, and their first show at the Manchester Apollo venue, they bring along UK band Kids In Glass Houses to spice the line-up further. An effective recipe for a riot then?

Host to most of the local Cheshire talent, Banned! Night hosts a three band bill of bands playing alternative music to their fans from home. This time, two of the three bands are dealing some heavy material and the other cheery ska-punk giving a blend towards the crowd.

The Manchester G-Mex has recently been re-named to Manchester Central (a sensible name with it being within the center of the city), and since then the venue has began hosting musical concerts, one of which is tonight’s act from London – Bloc Party.

Relentless touring is what has been 2007 for Sheffield’s Bring Me The Horizon, and this is their third UK headlining tour this year. But let’s not forget to mention the band have also had their first tours in both Europe and the US in the preceeding months too. Tonight’s venue is Manchester Academy 3, a small-ish venue that’s perfect for the boy’s style.

LIVE: Silverstein @ Academy 3, Manchester (26/11/2007)

Date: November 26th, 2007
Venue: Academy 3, Manchester
Support: The Vincent Black Shadow, blessthefall

MySpace: www.myspace.com/silverstein

Rating:

A band like Silverstein are one that aren’t regular visitors to the UK, and only pop around perhaps once a year, twice if you’re lucky. Upon the release of their latest full-length album ‘Arrivals & Departures’ they return to Europe for a long-awaited tour. The question is: was it worth the wait? On November 26th 2007 they arrive to give Manchester a shot with their post-hardcore music, accompanied with two support acts, who have never even entered the UK with band business.
