Toronto ON, May 23 – On the second day of the Aftermath Festival, there was something for everyone: a bit of riffing, a lot of rhythm, and altogether a fun evening for those gathered. Promonium Jesters opened for a very good early crowd, and Antigen Shift followed them as a duo. The third act was a twin bill, split between The Gothsicles for the early part, reminding us all of why we should respect Aquaman; the transformation into The Causticles after Caustic joined them on stage. They were followed by industrial icon Malhavoc, who made room in his set for a cover of the Prospero/Ayria collab “Discipline”. That provided an interesting segue to the next energetic set performed by Ayria, which built up to the last performers, iVardensphere. In sum, a solid night at a solid event.
