Soil – 17th February 2018 – Newcastle O2 Academy
It’s always odd seeing a band so early on a Saturday evening but there’s a 10pm curfew so the 2nd band on tonight’s bill are on at 7:30pm, which is normally when doors are just opening! This doesn’t phase Soil though and they come out blazing getting the crowd going from the start!
The nine-song set is mostly from the Scars album with a couple from Redefine, Whole and a rawkus cover of Black Betty for good measure.
The intro to Halo, however, sees the crowd go nuts and Ryan McCombs joins them to sing it from the mosh pit with added Geordie vocalists aplenty!
I still think the crowd would have been better had it been a later set (for all bands) as they were just getting warmed up and it was over.
