Closing down the Revolution Stage at Projekt Revolution, metalcore band Atreyu came out blazing with a hard-hitting set that had the fans rocking the barricade with every blast beat breakdown and vocal attack.
Leading the charge was frontman Alex Varkatzas at the front of the stage, who came with a bellyful of fire and an intensity that had the crowd roaring. While Varkazas laid down the more aggressive vocals, Brandon Saller on drums picked up many of the more melodic lines, creating a charged, double-barreled delivery.
I first photographed Atreyu earlier this year on the Taste of Chaos Tour, and, having experienced the band´s energy before, I was not disappointed by their Projekt Revolution throw down.
The band put on a great performance that was the highlight of the Revolution stage for me and the perfect setup for the Street Drum Corps´ set on the main stage.
Check these guys out if you have the chance, they´re a blast to shoot. Lots of action at the front of the stage, and all of the members are great to photograph.
