Killswitch Engage The Crowd At Leeds
United Kingdom | |
25 August 2006
Killswitch Engage and Mastodon have got this year's Leeds Festival off to a fittingly brutal start. In contrast to the sunny
weather, both have been keeping things dark with Killswitch instructing the crowd to hurt each other...
The sun is shining in Yorkshire and the Bramham Park festival site is already bulging
at the seams on day one of Leeds Festival - but it hasn't stopped Killswitch Engage from being in violent mood!
Playing his first UK festival
since being laid up with back problems, guitarist Adam D wound up the crowd to their obvious delight during
the band's frentic, day-waking set.
He told them: "If you're standing next to a girl I want you to
fucking punch her in the ovaries. Girls, if you're standing next to a guy, turn around and punch him in his English pussy.
You English pussies!"
There was also mention of doing naughty things to young girls on ferris wheels,
which is too rude to print. Think digits.
The band went on to blow the crowd away with metal hits, such as 'My
Last Serenade' and 'Rose Of Sharyn'.
Prior to Killswitch Engage, Mastodon opened the day's proceedings, themselves confessing that they might be a bit heavy
and obscure for the festival - the crowd didn't seem to agree though.
Over on the NME/Radio 1 Stage punters have
been enjoying sets from the likes of !Forward Russiai and Shit Disco, who've pulled
off one of the festival performances so far with the ace 'I Know Kung Fu'.
