Hard Rock Cafe Las Vegas and Komp 92.3 presents… Rev Theory with Otherwise and Girl On Fire
Vegas’ Komp 92.3 hosted a Toys For Tots drive at Hard Rock Cafe Las Vegas that featured Rev Theory with Otherwise and Girl On Fire for hard hitting sets from three great metal(core) bands. Girl On fire played a short set heavy on songs from their new EP release Revenge, starting with “Secret Lies” to “Tragic Ending”, and “Automatic Hurt”. Austin Held’s powerful vocals stood out strong against the bands’ ferocious sound, and backed by Nick McMahan (Guitar), Josh Mouser (Bass) and Harry MacDonald (Drums) the band has proven they can rock on the road, having been out prior with Vans Warped Tour making new fans.
Las Vegas local favorites Otherwise took the stage for a set that included “Lighthouse”, “Vegas Girl” and “Stop Drop and Roll” as brothers Adrian Patrick (vocals) and Ryan Patrick (guitar) led their band through some of their best original tunes as the crowd sang and cheered to their homegrown heroes. With a pounding rhythm section from Flavio Ivan (bass) and Corky Gainsford (drums) Otherwise finished their list with their itunes single “Soldiers” that has gotten great response and may have garnered the band some A&R attention….penned as ‘Vegas best unsigned original band’ they may have crossed over that boundary to move on to bigger things into 2012, as the band has hinted this week on the internet as to a label signing, but no details yet.
Headliners Rev Theory hit the stage strong with “Dead in a Grave” and their show was off the a furious start as the fans lined the stage and the band dipped heavy into songs from their newest release Justice, playing “Wicked Wonderland”, “The Fire” and “Hangman” to get things going with a powerful kick off. Vocalist Rich Luzzi belted out stormy lyrics and angry fist-in-the-air choruses, with crunchy riffs from guitarist Rikki Lixx and a solid rhythm provided by Julien Jorgensen (guitar), Matty McCloskey (bass) and Dave Agoglia (drums). Rev Theory played songs spanning Justice and also previous release Light It Up, from “Wanted Man”, “Far From Over” and title track “Light It Up’, and then slowing things down with an acoustic “Broken Bones” and into “Hollow Man” with bassist McCloskey taking over vocal duties on the ballad. Rev Theory played a pretty long set of a dozen or more songs, keeping the pace high with video single and title song “Justice” and then finishing with “Far From Over” and WWE theme song “HellYeah”.
