Here are some photos from the entire Rock on the Range weekend. They include pictures of Steel Panther, Black Veil Brides, Escape the Fate, All That Remains, Danzig, and The Damned Things. There’s even a few of former FuseTV star Juliya C.
Overall I was impressed with all of the bands I was able to see. There were a few acts that surprised me. Mainly Korn. I didn’t expect much from them, but I have to admit they put on a great show. Jonathan Davis still sounds great. They still rock out like they did in the earlier days of their career.
My favorite act of the weekend is a close call between The Damned Things and Danzig. Both were amazing experiences for me that I was looking forward to the most out of all the bands. They did not disappoint one bit. Keith Buckley of The Damned Things sounded great live. Unfortunately, Scott Ian wasn’t with The Damned Things due to his wife being in labor. We at Metal Delirium would like to congratulate him on his new baby boy. Danzig still sounds great live and has ample amounts of energy for the crowd. He performed many of his classic songs and even threw in newer ones like “Ju Ju Bone.”
Some of the other acts that stood out were All That Remains, The Black Veil Brides, Avenged Sevenfold, and Steel Panther. I wasn’t sure how Steel Panther or The Black Veil Brides would hold up live, but they both owned the stage. I was extremely impressed by both bands. Satchel of Steel Panther performed one of the best and most unique guitar solos I have ever seen. Phil Labonte of All That Remains put on an amazing vocal performance. Surprisingly his shirt stayed on the entire performance. Sorry ladies.
Avenged Sevenfold put on one of the biggest and best performances of the entire festival. They utilized pyrotechnics and many backdrops. The flames and fireworks added a nice touch to a great setlist. M. Shadows sounded great for almost having had to cancel the show due to vocal strain. He was even doing powerful screaming in some of the songs.
Rock on the Range was a pretty good festival overall. Many great acts and some surprises.
