Another trip to Austria and just like last time another sunny day in Vienna city, we enjoyed yet another Impericon festival. With a lineup of bands like Hellions, Hundredth, Any Given Day, Chelsea Grin, Blessthefall, Despised Icon, Bury Tomorrow, Northlane, Emmure and Hatebreed, a great time was guaranteed.

Festival was opened by Hellions, a band from Sydney, Australia. They are a new band on the scene, featuring ex members from a hardcore group The Bride. After the breakup of Bride, members decided to continuo playing and wanted to start fresh, so Hellions where created. During their performance there was already quite a lot of people in front of the stage.

Second band to preform was Hundredth from South Carolina. This melodic hardcore four piece band, released their third studio album in 2015, they also have two EPs. It was a good hardcore performance.

Later on, it was time for German metalcore by the name of Any Given Day.  Before forming the band members played in several different bands. Their debut album "My Longest Way Home" came out in 2014. They did a great show. They were in the making of their second album. It was released just after the festival, on 24 of August, called "Everlasting".

When it was time for some deathcore a good number of people were gathered in front of the stage. Chelsea Grin were the fourth act of the day. Even though it was still early people were warmed up and ready for the show. Like Any Given Day, they were also in the making of a new album, called "The Self Inflicted".

Later it was time for some post hardcore, Blessthefall from Arizona were next to play. With their soft melodic sounds, it wasn't any less of a powerfull performance then from those before them.
The sixth band of the day was Canadian deathcore titans Despised Icon. They announced breakup in 2010, but later had a reunion for several shows in 2014. So this was a great opportunity to see them play together. With their two vocalists they also delivered a solid performance.

With the mixture of softer and harsh riffs Bury Tomorrow from the UK made a memorable performance. They just made a new album called "Earthbound", witch was released in January 2016, this is their fourth studio album. With the older and new songs, they really delivered an impressive show.

Northlane from Sydney, Australia gave a satisfying performance with their progressive riffs. With the visual effect they created an atmospheric mood. They are named after the song North Lane, from Arhitects.

Finally it was time for one of the bands we were so anxious to see, Emmure were next to play on stage. We were curious how they would do with the new lineup, since only the vocalist Frankie is the one who stayed from the previous lineup and they did not dissapoint. We were pleasantly surprised! Their stage presence was powerfull. They delivered a powerful performance and lifted up the crowd for the headliners of the festival, Hatebreed.

The crowd was filling it before, but by the time Hatebreed began to play the crowd went totally crazy. The atmosphere was such as you would want on every show. Their stage presence was powerfull. Right after the festival a new album was released. The Concrete Confessional is their seventh studio album. They immpresed the crowd with the songs from the new album and overall appearance.

Overall the festival was again such a great success, with the cherry on the top atmosphere. We can't wait for next year.
