August 23rd 2017, The Slidebar, Fullerton CA: After having been attending and reviewing shows at The Slidebar for years now, last Wednesday Metal Assault had the pleasure of putting on our first show at this lovely Fullerton establishment. This edition of Heavy Wednesday, powered by us, featured the talents of three amazing bands, and it was an evening of firsts. All three bands were playing on this stage for the very first time, and one was performing live for the first time ever. LA’s newest progressive metal force Colossal Microcosm impressed one and all with their live debut, followed by Tijuana, Mexico old-school metal warriors Meltdown who were as entertaining and endearing as ever. Lastly, epic progpower outfit Novareign owned the stage as the headline act and put forth a scintillating exhibition of top-class musicianship. Great venue, great bands and a great turnout, we could not asked for anything more. Thanks to everyone who made it. Our man Matt Nielson was on site to capture these fantastic images to relive the best moments of the evening. Enjoy them below, and be on the lookout for an announcement for our next Slidebar show very soon!
