DIAMANTE: A relative newcomer to the scene DIAMANTE is only 18 years old and already has accomplished some incredible feats. First off she writes her own songs and has her first album out now as well as touring throughout the states and getting momentum. The music does have to take more shape, but I see many great things to come from this rising artist as I can see that they have the right tools for the years to come.
The Agonist: And now for something completely different. Having a very diverse lineup for the night, we saw Pop, Punk and Rock bands perform. But make way here comes Canada’s own “The Agonist”. Fronted by lead singer Vicky Psarakis, The Agonist brought out a unique blend of Heavy Metal/Death music melted together with Operatic/Scream vocals. Great music all together, loved the way the songs flowed into each other. And of course an amazing live performance to top it all off. Hats off to “The Agonist”!

So Revolver has done an amazing job of putting out the Hottest Chicks in Hard Rock Issues and Tour. And truthfully there are some serious heavy hitters that have made it to that list. So now we have the Revolver tour featuring some of the very groups that have made those issues. And I’m sure the question on everyone’s mind is “Can these Chicks ROCK?” Let’s find out, shall we?
So April 22nd 2015 the Revolver Tour hits Revolution Nightclub in Ft Lauderdale, Florida and Metal Master Kingdom is on scene to see what this show is made of.
*Due to a few minor glitches we missed the opening act Falling for Scarlet (our apologies), but all is taken care of and we are all systems go for the show.
Fit for Rivals: Hailing from the Jacksonville, FL area this group was very impressive. Front Woman Renee Phoenix immediately got my attention with her raspy Joan Jett vocal stylings and raw, aggressive don’t care attitude. The music was tight, packed with high energy, unique tempo changes and a great overall harmonious sound. I wasn’t the only one that felt it. “Fit for Vandals” had the best response of the night regardless of the fact that they were not the headliner. I see many great things to come for this band.
And now the moment we’ve all waited for, the one, the only, I give you Flyleaf. There’s always a lot to be said about a headliner and if you’ve been covering music long enough you really get a sense of why they are selected to be the headliner. Flyleaf is by far no exception to this. From the moment that they took the stage it was no question that they had the crowd at their fingertips. Song to song the crowd grew in an excitement that lasted for the remainder of the show. First time seeing them and I was very impressed by their performance. It looks as if new singer Kristen May has had no problems filling in the shoes of her predecessor and the synergy in the band is as strong as ever. Great performance overall and high remarks to Flyleaf for sticking through the hardships and moving forward!
