When Demonic Resurrection were announced as special guests for the Friday night, this was something of a coup for the Les-Fest team as it would be the band's first ever Scottish date and would take place before a run of European dates and it was Les-Fest orgainser Dave Ritchie who took to the stage to personally introduce the band to great applause.

The band treated the packed out arena to a solid set of track, mostly culled from their upcoming album, 'The Demon King' which is due for release in early July. The title track of the album has the band bathed in red light as they systemically walk on stage with guitarist Nishith Hedge almost unseen but definitely heard as the throng down the front bang their heads in time to the music.

'Trail Of Devastation' follows and had the main arena jumping (or should that be head banging) to the beat as vocalist Sahil Makhija and bass player Ashwin Shriyan lead the onstage head banging.

Before 'Death, Desolation And Despair', Makhija jokes that the band aren't "sure if you guys in Scotland mosh" to which he gets a rousing roar from the audience.

It's not all fast numbers, however, as the band slow the pace with 'The Promise Of Never' which is still an incredibly heavy song which also includes a great guitar solo from Hedge.

The band bring Ritchie onstage to publicly thank him for the chance to play at his festival which gets rapturous applause from the audience once again then wrap up their set with two numbers from their back catalogue which may be more familiar to some of the audience but it's clear that playing Les-Fest has brought a whole new set of fans for the band and you only hope that they go down just as well on the rest of their European tour and return to these shores again soon.

bleed from within

The Friday night headliners were the popular British band, Bleed From Within, who were there to play their first gig in the home county of South Lanarkshire for six years, and as the main arena tent filled up, it was clear that they were a crowd pleaser and the audience let out the loudest cheer of the day as the band make their way onstage.

The band have hardly started the first song when the first circle pit is unleashed and being a family friendly festival there were a few people there who hadn't experienced one before (and won't experience one again judging by the look on their faces!).

Vocalist Scott Kennedy makes the most of his time taking every opportunity to energies the crowd whilst Martyn Evans pulls out some great solos and even manages to swing from the lighting gantry ensuring that it's not only Kennedy who can put on a show.

As the bands set continues, the crowd are egged on by Kennedy and Evans for another circle pit and the audience duly oblige but you have to feel sorry for the poor soul who is unprepared and ends up on the ground - thankfully unhurt - during the melee.

There is a lot of passion for the band, not just because they're on home ground but they do have a young fan base who are able to get up close and personal at Les-Fest whereas with bigger festivals like Donington or Sonisphere there is more separation with the audience.

The band delivered a flawless headline set except for a short break when drummer Ali Richardson broke the snare drum and as he frantically searched out a new one, it was left up to Kennedy trying to keep the crowd entertained before the band end their set to great applause.

With a handful of live dates recently announced, it's safe to assume that a lot of those people crammed into the tent to see this set will be buying tickets for a repeat performance at a venue near them.
