Scottish rockers Twin Atlantic set Aberdeen’s Beach Ballroom alight, on Thursday 18th May. This was the opening night of the second leg of the GLA tour.

Coming on stage to flashing blue and white lights, they blasted straight into first song Valhalla. Coming off their latest album, the heavy, pounding nature of the song had the crowd electric from the off. A loud, confident opener was exactly what the band need to set themselves up for a heart pounding gig.

The instance he stepped on stage lead singer, Sam McTrusty, had the Aberdeen crowd in his hands as they sang and swayed upon his every action. The frontman has developed his appearance with this new album to a full blown rock star.

Every song was sang back to the stage, louder than the band could play it and this was exemplified by Free - the title track off their second album – as the crowd gave this one of the most powerful responses of the night.

Some bands tend to keep their sets a variation of their work however Twin Atlantic favoured to stock theirs most tracks from GLA. However every one of them struck a chord with the crowd making the gig an atmospheric spectacle.

As always the crowd – despite the love they showed for the new material – were desperate for the classics. Songs such as Heart and Soul, Crash Land and Hold On were met with rapturous ovations.

Without any encore, the band ended their set with a trio of hits. Firstly the incredible Hold On from The Great Divide, which had the entire crowd chanting each word back to McTrusty, then they ripped through No Sleep, one of the hits of GLA.  To finish the set they played the anthem-like Heart and Soul, taken from the third album, Great Divide .

The crowd loved every single minute of the gig but it looked as though the band members loved it even more.
