When Alexisonfire hit town to play a tiny, intimate Kerrang! Awards Show in north London, Lynsey Wright made sure she was right down the front for Thrash Hits .com with her camera.

Dead Swans hit the stage running; launching straight into fierce, full-tempo hardcore. This band doesn’t miss a beat.

Brighton band the Ghost of a Thousand take to the stage next, and do nothing to calm the already overexcited crowd down.

Vocalist, Tom Lacey is a livewire on stage. Running from stage to barrier and back it’s hard to keep-up but it fits the fast-paced, hardcore music that this band are specialists of.

An over-sold Barfly is bursting at the cracks in the walls by the time the headliners, Alexisonfire, are due to appear and they certainly don’t mess about.

Within seconds of appearing onstage they launch into their first grinding hit; driving the largely underage crowd into a frenzy. The entire room sings along to both the melodic parts of Dallas Green and the raw screams of a shirtless George Pettit.

They plough their way through songs from both Crisis and Watch Out and even debut an as-yet-unnamed song from the forthcoming record, jokingly titled ‘Wade owns England’.

The best surprise of the evening was the stage invasion during the encore. Almost the entire crowd were clambering over the barrier, limbs flailing, attempting to join their heroes on stage and to ensure they have something to tell the kids in the playground tomorrow.
