**Dead Romance Club: Metallica-Flavored Fury**


My first encounter with the Dead Romance Club was electrifying. Their Metallica-inspired sound, polished and powerful, suggests countless hours spent honing their craft. Their stage presence was engaging and their musicianship was top-notch. Overall, their performance left a lasting impression on me and I can't wait to see what the Dead Romance Club has in store next. Keep an eye out for this talented group, as they are sure to make waves in the music industry.

**Hightide in Tokyo: Punk Rock Swagger and Cheeky Banter**


Hightide in Tokyo brought high energy and emo/punk rock vibes took over the stage as they delivered a performance filled with attitude and excitement. Their music was powerful, and their lively interactions had the audience laughing along. Amidst the fun, the vocalist also shared a heartfelt tribute to his mother and brother (BIG love to you my friend, that could not have been easy). With their talent, these musicians can leave a significant impact on the local music scene.

**Eversio: An Astonishing Trillians Debut**


Hold onto your hats... Eversio. What an explosive way to introduce themselves to the world! Just their second show ever? Forget that – the way they commanded the stage, you'd think they'd been performing for years. Their tight, polished sound left my jaw on the floor and a case of a bang-over in the morning. With performances like this, they're a serious contender for the Newcastle M2TM crown. Well done on the semifinal spot!


Overall, Heat 1 has set a high bar for the rest of the competition. Get ready, because Newcastle and surrounding metal scene is about to get a whole lot hotter!
