“The night kicked off with Liverpool’s very own Twelve Gauge. Even though these guys have only been gigging for a couple of months, they came on stage and proved that they can play with the best. With strong influences from the likes of Black Stone Cherry and Alter Bridge, the band had a great mix of melodic riffs and heavy rhythm sections. The fast riffs and heavy beats were held nicely together by how tight this band is, each member holding their own, giving the audience something good to watch as well as listen to. Definitely a band to watch out for in 2013.”
