At Herman’s Hideaway, Denver, CO
Few bands call to mind the success of the late 90s of heavy and popular music like Powerman 5000 and Soil do. Both bands were products of the post-Nu Metal boom and got huge on big hit albums such as Tonight The Stars Revolt and Scars. Both bands played Ozzfest and toured the world. Then reality set in and each band had endured the turbulence of line-up changes, shifting music and images changes (for PM5K) shifting tastes of their own fans and a momentum killing hiatus. Fast-forward to the last few years and each band has clawed their way back to work and respectability. PM5K put out a new album in Builders of the Future (T-Boy/Universal) and Soil reunited with singer Ryan McCombs for their most recent album Whole (Pavement/AFM). Joined by up and coming rockers 3 Years Hollow, each band put down a strong performance and had enthusiastic response from the crowd. Shot here for Ghost Cult by Evil Robb Photography, each of the two veteran bands have something to prove to themselves and their fans.
