Scale the Summit -- Hollywood, CA -- January 31st, 2012

Ok so the show was awesome. Scale the Summit was top notch, as well as an awesome local unsigned band, Sea of Skies, but I will get to that later. First things first I will give a review...

So I got to the venue at around 8:30, and the second band was already playing. They were called the Siberian and were metal with some progressive/djent elements. They were pretty good, I would give them a 7/10.

Next up came another local band, Asleep in Reality, and they again were a more metal band with screaming vocals. They had a good response and were all very capable on their instruments, but still lacking something. I will give them a 6.5/10.

Next up was the surprise of the night for me, Sea of Skies. The band is very progressive and even though they have 3 guitarist, they use them very well and create a wall of sound. They all played solos and one of them is the lead singer. Very awesome to watch. They played instrumental songs as well as songs with vocals and it all worked very well. I have the setlist because I talked to the band as well as bought their debut EP, Distance. I give them a 9/10 and highly recommend you check them out. They will be doing great things!

Lastly Scale the Summit. I have seen them many times and every time they deliver the goods. This show was no different. The whole band was topnotch and everything sounded great. The band played songs from all 3 records and even played a new song called "Redwoods". It was great to see them on a headline tour and seeing them play a full 80 minutes as opposed to the usual 25 minute set. But ya, I will give them a 9.5/10 and look very much forward to seeing them again. They never fail!

So yes a great show indeed. Highly recommend to check out the show around you, as well as check out Sea of Skies, a band that will for sure be doing great things very soon.
