The temperatures dropped into the teens on Monday night, but that hardly kept metal heads from strolling through the doors of the Granada wearing nothing but shirts with the sleeves cut off. They dressed appropriately, considering how brutal the lineup was. Explosive performances from both Trivium and DevilDriver drew fans from far and wide. Both bands delighted the audience by getting up close and personal with them, teetering as close to the barricades as possible. The bloodthirsty fans ate it up, while rock horns routinely pierced out of the fog that filled the venue all night long.
