Beartooth live review - Shepherd's Bush Empire, London

Live Review

Venue: Shepherd's Bush Empire, London

Ohio hardcore punks go wild in west London

Although superficially similar to tonight’s headliners, Boston’s VANNA [6] don’t take the crowd’s support for granted. Vocalist Davey Muise bounds around like an excitable puppy, playing a hype man working the audience into a frenzy. Vanna themselves are at their best when they allow the groove and bounce of nu metal to bleed into their sound, but elsewhere there’s too much reverence for by-the-numbers hardcore tropes. They’re entertaining but forgettable.
