Previous Shows!!

Lamb of God/Fear Factory/Children of Bodom

ROKHEDZ spent Halloween weekend 2004 absorbing some of the heaviest riffs on the planet. It was like a mini-fest of murderous guitar mayhem.
It started on Thursday night at The Warfield, in San Francisco with Exodus pounding out the Bay Area Thrash for the hometown crowd.  We we're honored to have Chuck Billy (Testament) fill in for Steev Esquivel (Skinlab/Re-Ignition/Exodus). Steev suffered from eye irritation that caused his eyes to swell. He was advised by doctors not to perform. He came out anyway! Steev and Chuck belted it out for a few songs to wrap up the set. It was an amazing evening...
Megadeath hit the stage and proceeded to bring us the Dave Mustaine driven chops we all know and love. Megadeath made monsterous guitar riffs to pit by... Dave and the fellas gave us a real treat, it was good to taste Megadeath again!! Go check em out when they come to your town. Friday night ROKHEDZ returned to the scene of the crime for a second day of pummeling. Children of Bodom opened the show. They aroused the metal hungry crowd with spooky leads and pounding double bass. Fear Factory played to kill!! The bass and drums, guitar and vocals together added up to a symphony of volume. Byron helped to dislodge the cares of the day by vibrating every nerve loose.
Lamb of God finished us off with their holy sacrifice.
They drove the metal deep with speed and precision.
They ran about the stage possessed, obsessed by the spell that is Metal!!! Thanks for the fun everyone the Bay Area still kicks ass!! Stay tuned for more...
