Crossfaith, Live at Download Festival 2014

When I first heard that Crossfaith were playing at Download Festival this year, I was well happy. I'd never seen them live so far, and had heard that they put on quite a show! They were one of my "definite bands to watch" at this year's festival.

When they came on stage, there was already a huge crowd waiting for them, no doubt because of their reputation for an exciting performance! They were on fairly early, so unfortunately they had quite a short set, so they had to omit quite a few songs that would've been fantastic to hear, such as "Jaegerbomb", and "Monolith".

They do, of course, still have a great back catalogue from which to choose their songs, and with the last album APOCALYZE only ten months old, it was inevitable that we'd hear some of the songs from that album.

Their set was brilliant; exciting, with a huge sound, and the band's performance really lifting the crowd. Lead vocalist Ken, made a heartfelt speech about how their dreams had come true, to be able to play such a prestigious rock festival, and that they were "making history". It was the kind of speech that would sound a bit cheesy and fake, had it come from some other band, but coming from Crossfaith, it sounded very genuine to me.

I managed to record one song; "Eclipse", which you can see below.


This, and the rest of their set, had the crowd jumping and singing along. There were circle pits, even though this year all the bands had been told not to encourage them.

Anyway, I was expecting to have a good time watching them, and Crossfaith certainly lived up to those expectations! I really enjoyed their performance; one highlight was their cover of The Prodigy's "Omen", which really got the crowd singing along.

I wasn't disappointed after seeing them, and I thoroughly recommend watching them if you get the chance. I'll definitely try to see them again!

Check out their latest album Apocalyze!
