I'm doing this on a phone, so forgive any typos:

Locals were The Engineered, As Earth shatters, and A Dark Orbit. Fun fact: ADO was one of the first bands signed to Basick Records, James from Tesseract's label that he runs PR for.. They only have one EP released, and their album has been coming soon for 4 years now. With that said, they're killer. It was ky second time seeing them.

On to the main lineup, starting with Anciients. It was second time seeing them this year, and they were much better this time around. They've seemed to find their live groove. They were about to launch into a fifth song at the end, but they were told no more. Despite being the odd man out in the lineup, they got a good crowd reaction. 8/10

Scale the Summit: Second time seeing them, and the first time was in front of a crowd of 20 people. This time, the place was packed and the crowd loved it. Mark Michel is an amzing bassist, and both Chris and Travis are underrated guitarists. The sound guy also tried to cut them off, and told them they had one song left. So they went into The Olive Tree, and immediately led it into Narrow Salient like on the album, and the sound guy had no clue. 9/10

Tesseract: Amazing. Ashe is easily the best frontman they've had, sorry Dan fanboys. He nailed everything, despite being sick. During Epiphany he came into the crowd and moshed with us. Great crowd interaction, and was clearly enjoying himself. The rest of the band was tight as well, but considering the vocalist issues they've had, Ashe is going to be the focus. Anyway, 9.5/10
