A look back at Edgefest

Posted on Sun, Jul 9, 2006 at 9:04 AM

Halestorm, a band whose music seems primed for modern rock radio and whose female vocalist has the potential of setting them apart, kicked off Edge Fest in a good way on Friday evening.

They were followed by Evans Blue’s self pitying muck and the Fred Durst-ish stage presence of their lead singer. Trapt was only slightly better, featuring several overplayed radio hits and uninteresting stage banter such as: "This song is called ‘Made of Glass.’ It’s about not worrying about what’s going on right now."

Shinedown disappointed live, with the distortion overpowering the vocals and drowning out their hooks.

Anthrax played their double kick drum thrash metal perfectly, including their Public Enemy collaboration "Bring the Noise," but were sadly only allowed as much time as the other opening bands.

Rob Zombie’s show was the pinnacle of the night as he played both his hits and those of his former band White Zombie. The stage setup, an appearance by a 15-foot tall robot, and Zombie’s video collages of cartoons, horror films, and Bettie Page and Charles Manson film clips resulted in a show more mind-altering (in a good way………I think) than the shows of all the previous bands combined. -- Stewart Deere
