The headliner of the evening is the hardcore band Terror from L.A., founded in 2002 by Scott Vogel from Buffalo, New York. The former lead singer of hardcore bands like Despair, Sludgefest and Buried Alive was angry about what went on for hardcore. He set himself the goal of regaining the genre by making hardcore as it had originated; in its most raw, honest and angry form. The band got an instant following of like-minded people and what started as an idea grew into a true crusade with shows on all continents.
