Photos and Live Review: Underoath & The Ghost Inside @ Coca-Cola Roxy 08.06.23

I just got back from the most amazing concert at the Coca-Cola Roxy in Atlanta featuring Better Lovers, We Came As Romans, The Ghost Inside, and Underoath. The energy in the room was electric from start to finish!

Better Lovers kicked off the night, the newly formed metalcore supergroup from Buffalo, NY consisting of vocalist Greg Puciato, guitarists Jordan Buckley and Will Putney, bassist Stephen Micciche, and drummer Clayton Holyoak. I must say, I was blown away by their raw energy and passion for music. The band’s performance was nothing short of spectacular.

Greg Puciato’s vocals were fierce and intense, perfectly complementing the heavy guitar riffs and thunderous drum beats. Jordan Buckley and Will Putney’s guitar work was impressive, showcasing their technical skill and creativity. Stephen Micciche’s bass lines were also noteworthy, adding depth and complexity to the overall sound.

What impressed me the most, however, was the band’s chemistry and stage presence. They clearly had a strong connection and played off each other’s energy, creating an electrifying atmosphere that had the entire crowd on their feet. They are truly going to be a force to be reckoned with in the metalcore scene and I can’t wait to see what they have in store for the future.

We Came As Romans was up next, and I was blown away by their talent and energy. This post-hardcore band from Michigan is made up of some seriously talented musicians, including vocalist David Stephens, guitarists Joshua Moore and Lou Cotton, bassist Andy Glass, and drummer David Puckett.

From start to finish, We Came As Romans put on an incredible show that had the crowd absolutely buzzing. David Stephens’ vocals were nothing short of amazing, and he really knew how to work the crowd and get everyone involved in the performance. Joshua Moore and Lou Cotton also impressed with their guitar skills, delivering some truly epic riffs and solos that had everyone cheering. Andy Glass’s stage presence and high energy was unmatched. But it wasn’t just the music that made this performance so great – it was also the band’s stage presence and showmanship. They clearly put a lot of thought and effort into their performance, from the lighting and visuals to the way they interacted with the audience. It was clear that they were there to put on a show, and they did not disappoint.

This is a band that truly knows how to rock, and their live performance is not to be missed. Whether you’re a die-hard fan or just looking for an amazing night out, this is a show that will leave you feeling energized and inspired.

The Ghost Inside took the stage keeping the energy going and I must say, it was an awe-inspiring experience. This metalcore band hails from Los Angeles and comprises of five talented musicians – Jonathan Vigil on vocals, Zach Johnson and Chris Davis on guitars, Jim Riley on bass, and Andrew Tkaczyk on drums. Their on-stage chemistry was palpable, and they delivered a performance that left me absolutely speechless.

One of the most poignant moments of the night was when The Ghost Inside recounted their 2015 bus accident. It was evident that this incident was a pivotal moment for the band, and it was truly remarkable to see how they persevered through it all and emerged stronger than ever before. The unwavering support of their fan base was a sight to behold, and it serves as a testament to the power of music and its ability to impact people’s lives.

All in all, the Ghost Inside’s live performance was a true testament to their artistry and dedication to their craft. They put on a show that was both enthralling and emotive, and it’s evident that they have a bright future ahead of them.

Finally Underoath stormed the stage and was absolutely incredible. The Florida-based emo metalcore band, consisting of vocalist Spencer Chamberlain, guitarists Timothy McTague, bassist Grant Brandell, keyboardist Christopher Dudley, and drummer Aaron Gillespie, put on one of the most intense and emotional shows I’ve ever seen.

From the moment they hit the stage, it was clear that Underoath was there to give their all. Chamberlain’s vocals were raw and powerful, perfectly capturing the angst and passion of their music. McTague’s guitar work was intricate and impressive, while Brandell’s basslines added a heavy, driving rhythm to the mix. Dudley’s keyboards added a haunting, atmospheric element to the music, while Gillespie’s drumming was precise and explosive.

But what really stood out to me was the energy and emotion that Underoath brought to their performance. They didn’t just play their songs – they lived them. Chamberlain was especially impressive, throwing himself into the music with a fierce intensity that was impossible to ignore. The crowd was completely captivated, singing along to every word and moshing with abandon.

Last night will be a night I’ll not soon forget!
