Cancer Bats Even if you aren’t a fan of Cancer Bats you have to concede that these guys know how to put on a show. They enjoy what they do and they take time hanging out with fans in the smoking area prior to their set. The interlude music of Andrew WK fits perfect for these guys to enter the stage.

In Flames Despite most of their setlist tonight coming from their latest albums 'Siren Charms' and 'Sounds Of A Playground Fading' , which are considered by both fans and critics to be two of their less heavy but more melodic albums, In Flames still manage to pack one hell of a punch live. Appearing against what is a surprisingly good stage set up they launched themselves into the explosive opener, 'In Plain View'. The crowd are definitely up for it as they bounce to every beat and are clearly enjoying themselves.

Slam Dunk Festival North It’s not that often you get lost in a university students union. How many of them are big enough that you end up walking in circle passing by the supermarket and terrace bar on several occasions before you realise you’ve wandered past the room you wanted twice? Well Leeds University Student Union is one such place you can do that which was why it turned out to be an excellent host for the Slam Dunk Festival North on Saturday.

Hit The Deck Festival The second annual Hit The Deck Festival, a heavily sponsored all-day indoor festival focused on the genres of metal, rock, emo and hardcore (both post and present), rolled up in Nottingham on a very wet April weekend. But that wasn't going to dampen anyone's spirits anytime soon. Held across five stages in five different and very intimate venues, you'd do good to find another event that offers so many amazing bands, both big and small, for such a reasonable price.
