Hatebreed headline a night of hardcore metal at Worcester, MA’s Palladium (with Twitching Tongues, Code Orange and Dying Fetus)

The line at the Palladium wrapped around the block as people waited to be let in to see one of the hardest tours of the year: Twitching Tongues, Code Orange, Dying Fetus, and Hatebreed.

This is the sort of tour that pulls out all different kinds of people, from metal heads, to hardcore kids, to scenesters. Even with a a completely packed venue of different types of people, we were all there for one reason and that was to see Hatebreed celebrate 20 years of “Satisfaction Is The Dead of Desire” and 15 years of “Perseverance”.

From the second they took stage, even before they began playing, people were moshing and throwing themselves over the barrier. Security, very literally, had their arms full that night. Towards the end of their set, the Connecticut native band called out an old member to play the final songs with, Sean Martin. The crowd exploded and the closed out the night with “Proven” straight into the title track “Perseverance”. It was a night and tour that people are going to remember for years to come.
