Dissent and Revolt have been in the Madison music scene for a few years now. I have seen them open for other bands a few times in the past. I remembered them as being a good band but I forgot how technical they were. This is the thing that impressed me the most. I’m not used to hearing riffs like this out of bands from the Madison area. Perhaps I need to look harder to find them.
This was a rock solid, well executed set. Explosive energy at times and a riot to watch them play. They have a very aggressive hardcore sound. If the crowd would have been larger I can only imagine that there would have been a good pit going at times. My neck got a good work out watching these guys play. I wish I would have paid more attention to them in the past and look forward to seeing them again.
