Coming from the 'Geordieland', the four piece group came back to the Trillians Rock Bar, Newcastle on the 17th of November for a round 2 and saying that the fans of the band and the music were excited is an understatement. From their setlist to props to their stage antics, its a trip down memory lane to what rock/metal was in the 90s and the early 2000s.
From the get go, the band had the crowd going, starting off their set with Disturbed's most famous track, 'Down with the sickness'. following it with some more classics from Incubus, Korn, Linkin Park, Slipknot and Limp Bizkit. The band also adds its own twist which according to one of the band members makes them "Nu-nique".
They band managed to maintain their energy throughout the set. Nu-castle had the crowd buzzing in the later stages of their with iconic Nu-metal numbers like Toxicity, Killing in the name etc. The highlight of the gig was when the band and the crowd were in unison when singing one of Linkin Park's globally loved track "In The End" which was like a fitting tribute to their late singer, Chester Bennington.
Ending their set 'System of a Down's' biggest hit 'Chopsuey', the crowd were absolutely buzzing and wanted a few more tracks from the band. At one point, you could hear the entire venue in one voice screaming "One more song!" The fans were raving about the performance after the gig and couldn't wait for them to comeback!
