Pops Nightclub, Sauget, Ill.

Devour the Day is no stranger to the music industry. The band developed in 2012 from the minds of Joey Chicago (bass, vocals, songwriter) and Blake Allison (lead vocals, guitar, songwriter, producer). They have been going strong since their formation, with a still rising fan count.

This was apparent when they made quite an impression during their St. Louis–area stop at Pops. Devour the Day, along with its very heavy sound, immediately had fans throwing their fists into the air. The crowd was enthusiastic and engaged as the band put on a solid, heavy, and passionate show, earning a solid, loud ovation in return.

All That Remains has made quite a name for themselves since forming in 1998, as an American heavy metal band. Members Philip Labonte (vocals), Mike Martin (guitar), Oli Herbert (guitar), Aaron Patrick (bass), and Jason Costa (drums) make up the metal team.

These guys wasted little time firing up the crowd, and soon had audience members chanting them on, head banging, and giving them excitement back. All of this made for a strong and heavy show.

Labonte put on a hell of a performance, as we had hoped. His screams were as powerful as ever, and his vocals in lighter songs were both crisp and clean. The rest of the band was in sync and on time. Their tightness and pitch-perfect harmonies were incredibly spot-on and amazing to hear live.

I think it’s safe to say the only complaint from their fans is that they didn’t play a longer set. | Jessica Graham
