This was the gig that kept on giving, intimate, if sweaty, venue, a decent array of booze on offer and two support acts that held their own against the reformed Corby sludge titans. The Darkhorse were up first offering a Down-esque lump of stoner-cum-sludge, massive riffs and rock solid rhythm section combined with some meaty growled vocals. A very impressive opening act.
Heart of a Coward had to put on a real show to better The Darkhorse and they duly obliged, with chunky polyrhythms aplenty and djent stylings combined with some mammoth groove and vicious vocals.
Had it not been for Raging Speedhorn, HOAC would have won the evening, but after 6 years away and only 4 practices(!), the 'Horn absolutely destroyed tonight, smashing through most of their first two albums, plus non-album single The Gush, which slays an audience mostly comprised of 25+ year olds. As the feedback sounded from the speakers to mark the end of the set, Corby had indeed witnessed something truly immense.
