A rainy Monday night didn't stop fans from packing into Charlotte music venue Amos' Southend to see American metal band All That Remains.

Though the doors had been open for thirty minutes, the room was still fairly vacant when local band Annabell Leigh took the stage to open the evening. Undaunted by the sparse crowd, Wilson, a Detroit, Michigan band currently on tour with All That Remains, followed Annabell Leigh's set. Towards the closing of Wilson's set, guitarist Kyle Landry gave the show a highlight point as he scaled the lighting rigs and played his guitar hanging upside down from them! People that had been hanging out at the multiple bars and top level of the venue came downstairs and compacted the barricade to get a closer look and snap photos and videos.

Everyone that had gathered together remained so through the next act, Darkest Hour. The thrash metal band originated in Washington, D.C. and is also on the tour with Wilson and All That Remains. Darkest Hour further zapped some energy into the venue, as a mosh pit broke out amid their set. Fortunately, that invigoration seemed to have the masses amply riled up for All That Remains.

The Springfield, Massachusetts native band kicked off their set with "The Air That I Breathe", an older single from their third studio album The Fall of Ideals. Quickly switching gears into their newest album A War You Cannot Win, All That Remains performed their 2012 US Main chart topping single "Stand Up." With heavy rifts from guitarists Oli Herbert and Mike Martin accompanied by Jason Costa's clashing drums, it was no surprise when a mosh pit spawned and encompassed half the room. The mosh pit became ravenous as the band powered through songs such as "For We Are Many" and "This Darkened Heart," with a security guard even having to forcefully escort a particularly rowdy fan out of the venue.

Despite maintaining a mostly hardcore sound, All That Remains performed a few songs that showcased frontman Philip Labonte's ability to easily pivot between guttural screams and lyrical melodies. Labonte captivated the audience with a standout performance of "What If I Was Nothing," with perfect harmonization from bassist and backing vocalist Jeanne Sagan. They continued with "Asking Too Much" before blasting through Guitar Hero II song "Six." All That Remains closed the night out with "Two Weeks," a fan favorite that was featured as a downloadable song on games Tap Tap Revenge 2 and Rock Band.

The current tour comes to a close tonight in Worcester, MA, but All That Remains is scheduled to play as part of rock radio station 99X's Belated 20th Birthday Bash and Blazefest 2014 in May.
