Overkill headline metal night at Represent

It’s fair to say metal night was the loudest and most intense we’ve seen at Represent and that was exactly what the crowd wanted. Kicking things off early on newcomers Wet Nuns proved they were a force to be reckoned with in such hallowed company, in spite of a few technical issues they won the crowd over and got the mosh pit moving.

The Safety Fire switched things up a little sonically powering through high-octane versions of ‘Animal Kingdom’ and the epic ‘Huge Hammers’ amongst others. By this point the drinks were flowing, the temperature was rising and people were ready to go crazy for Leeds boys Pulled Apart By Horses. It was clear they had a lot of fans in the crowd who rushed to the front when they started. Playing tours with legends like Muse and Biffy Clyro has obviously helped them hone their performance and on-stage swagger and tracks like ‘V.E.N.O.M’, ‘Yeah Buddy’ and ‘High Five’ giving the headbangers in the front row exactly what they came for.

The insanely fast guitar work of ‘Come and Get It’ heralded a rock and roll rollercoaster over the next hour with Overkill showing The 100 Club they still know who the blow away a crowd. After a loud, high intensity hour they closed with the spectacularly rowdy ‘F**k You’ and that was that.
