Masked metal heroes

15scorngrain_mh03.jpgThe festival audience were treated with harsh metal grind by Scorngrain. Forces of the nature sided with the band as the pouring rain ceased the moment the band began to play. Considering how impressive the band’s makeup was, it’s rather obvious they’ve done more than just raided their mother’s makeup storage.

Rain or no rain, the most eager fans didn’t care. The band proved they’re very well aware of cliches of the genre, which unfortunately also means they won’t be remembered for being personal. But at least showy poses, passionate playing and carefully crafted show costumes paid off as the muddy lovers of metal partied despite of rain and dirt.
