The band righteously rocked the Metro, a crowd quite evenly split between fans, industry and friends. Highlight for me was "Metal", a rock pastiche laid over a mighty looping AC/DC riff, but it was great to hear all the favourites from "The Manifesto" and other albums, in the live arena as it were.
Good also to put faces to some of the voices. I thought Adam Hussain would be taller.
