GOING LIVE: Heavy TO 2011 (Day One)

Remember the Taste Of Chaos tour? It was like Vans Warped Tour, but for the older crowd. A tad similar, HEAVY TO is such a festival but for your parents (or you and your metal friends) who once rocked 80s’ metal hair, know who the “Big Four Of Thrash” are and will never tire of 1992’s Countdown To Extinction. Almost 20 years since the LP took over the world, the sibling of HEAVY MTL touched down at Downsview Park in Toronto for two days with one clear intention: to melt faces.

Since our photographer was speechless, we’ll assume Day One did just that. To arouse on-lookers, UNDEROATH, TIMES OF GRACE and DIAMOND HEAD erupted on-stage leading into an onslaught of pure musical mayhem courtesy of OPETH, AS I LAY DYING, ANTHRAX, MOTORHEAD and MEGADETH. Some audience members dissolved into the pit while others conformed by staring and listening.
