Round 1 of the elimination battle for a chance to play the famous Wacken Open Air festival in Germany took place at the Starlite Room on Thursday night. Four bands melted our faces off starting out with local boys Within the Fury and HAXOR.

Apollo Spitefire’s intense stage presence was complete with dual guitar solos and thumping bass. Closing round 1 competition was the trash band Rising Sun, the eventual winners of the night. After a complete refit of the drum kit, Josh Krishka roared to life. Lead singer and guitarist Kai Sakaguchi brought the crowd to their feet with his powerful vocals. Parakram Chauhan had the hair flying with his powerful bass and unbelievable energy. Amazing performances with a big shout out to Starlite room. 


Stay tuned for the next battle on Feb 28
