Having driven over twenty hours straight from a residency in one of the Dakota’s, you could have assumed the guys in Advent Horizon would have played a laid back and relaxed set to the lightly drizzled on crowd in Purgatory. Instead, the quartet from Salt Lake City featuring duel guitars tore through a set of mainly original progressive alternative (think a bluesier Smashing Pumpkins with better vocals, or Kansas, who they covered).
Their amazingly tight instrumentation was complemented by some surprising vocal harmonies. Advent Horizon seemed to be a band enjoying themselves (their latest single is the tongue in cheek titled “Tequila Mockingbird”) which made you enjoy the show more.
