Feel the power. Take it all in. Do what you want to do with it. Or, do what everybody else does with such energy at a hardcore concert: MOSH. Hard rockers Adema and Static-X left just about everyone with no other option.

With the perfect atmosphere, The Verizon Theatre, even opening bands Audio Vert and Trust Co. probably never sounded better. A little work on the vocals for Trust Co. and maybe some innovative guitar parts from Audio Vert, and these guys are on their way to becoming, yet another...Buzz band! (now is the time to not jump for joy)

Playing a rather long set, Adema proved themselves of being able to keep up and rock with the hardest of the rockers. Yes, rap-rock is most popular these days, but front man Mark Chavez brought forth a wider spectrum of talents by playing the acoustic guitar for a couple songs, and actually singing...good. Playing "Giving In," the first single off of their debut album, was the high-light of their set as the crowd quickly responded with a roar as they broke into about eight different mosh pits. Kudos to Adema.

Turning up the loudness, the craziness and the heaviness, were headliners, Static-X. Lot's of double bass from behind the skins, nothing but pure energy from both the 4-stringer' and lead guitarist, and finally uncontrollable yet perfect screaming rage from front man Wayne Static. His hair made it even better.

These guys put on a great show. Songs such as "Loser" and the new single off of the Queens of the Damned soundtrack, "Cold" almost equalled up to the best part of the night: a cover of AC/DC's Highway to Hell. The moment couldn't have been any better. What a beautiful sight: two thousand people singing along simultaneously with Static-X. It just doesn't get much better than that.
