Metal Riot’s Matt Slater hit up The Chance in Poughkeepsie, a favorite venue of this site, to shoot the powerful grooves and heavy barrage of Coal Chamber, Fear Factory and Jasta. Check out the shots BELOW.
I know you have probably heard the excellent new Coal Chamber album Rivals – read our interview with Dez on the album HERE – but you need to hear the great new Genexus record from Fear Factory, a step back up from the mixed bag of The Industrialist ( after the excellent Mechanize). And of course Jasta never, ever lets us down. He’s the biggest “as die hard as they come” type in the scene, something we could use more of in a new era of worse a.d.d. poseurs than ever before. It’s rad to see Jasta in a historically Hatebreed friendly venue like The Chance, especially hot on the heels of a massive Summer Breeze appearance. Inclusion is good, as this mix genre tour reminds, but also can’t fake dedication is something that all these bands prove makes metal even more rewarding for fans and musicians.
