Culloden opened Mearfest North on the main stage upstairs
With a recent council sound restriction, a faulty external door clad with what resembled a king size mattress. I placed myself by the door in my brand new role as 'fire warden'
With Alex Connor perched in the heavens on the tallest drum riser in the western world, we could see him gulping on the O2 provided for high altitude briefly until the cloud cover totally engulfed him.
With Ryan Thompson and Andrew Halliday poised for action. Karl Moore appeared stage left in his now trademarked leather 'Turkish bath of death' jacket.
Losing more pounds than the Brexit negotiation team as they stormed into there set
It was an incredible display of technical high speed heavy metal
When Andrew started singing his whole body shook with passion and pent up fury
His vocals are unbelievable. I've suggested their first shirts should say 'I've survived the shrieks of Satan' on the back, it was either a mind blowing or head numbing experience.
The crowd cowering in submission rose to their feet to applaud them when the onslaught abated briefly.
Songs came thick and fast and the dialogue during the intro to 'Witchpricker' was awesome. Some electrotrickery ensued as newly joined guitarist Stefan Rosic plugged in but as soon as we had power we had glory !
Wow what a debut
With a healthy crowd, fantastic support, brilliant stage and lighting and the culmination of untold hours of practice and passion.
You don't watch a Culloden gig you survive it!
Culloden totally stormed it 10/10
