Halestorm storm former railway shed
Venue: Roundhouse, London
It's an all-American line-up at London's prestigious Roundhouse tonight: Halestorm, Nothing More and Wilson
Representing Detroit are the first band on the bill, Wilson. When they take the stage it feels like watching a band who've been kept secret from metal's fraternity as they tear into a boisterous yet accomplished 'full blast fuckery' (as they call it) that swiftly fills the cavernous venue with energy. It's hard not to be enthralled by frontman Chad Nicefield, who arrives dressed as a toy soldier, bashing a drum with full force and proclaiming, “We like to go fast!” before bounding into a note-perfect rendition of Back in Black. It all ends with more percussive exploits, this time on a homemade beer bottle kit swiftly chugged by the band.
