The Sanctioned Annihilation tour was a blast. Bills like this one are why I love going to metal shows. Each band had something unique to offer and had great energy. Kylesa had some really cool lighting effects involving album art from their forthcoming album Spiral Shadow. Torche played decimating riffs and had contagious smiles. Needless to say, High On Fire were exceptional and played a crushing set which ended with new fan favorite "Snakes For the Divine." I can't believe that album's been out for 7 months already.
