As a household metalcore name, The Devil Wears Prada never disappoints. From the very beginning with the green lights and the fog machines spilling pancake smelling fog (yes, you read that right, the fog smelled like pancakes) truly set the mood. The band comes on stage without a normal intro and dives into the first song of the night, Sailor's Prayer. When Escape (the intro to 2011's Zombie EP) began, the lights switched to red and created the effect of zombies and blood which was really amazing. After a few more songs, Mike Hranica (lead vocalist) went offstage and grabbed a guitar and dove into Kansas which is the instrumental interlude from 2012's Dead Throne. The band then went into a jam session of sorts which was different from anything id heard from them previously. The session led perfectly into War and the crowd was still settled down so you could perfectly hear Hranica scream "I'm fighting the war, rather than war itself. Jeremy DePoyster (clean vocalist/rhythm guitar) never disappoints with his amazing choruses that have whole venue singing along. Fast forward to the band's encore which consisted of Mammoth (From Dead Throne) and a fan-favorite Danger:Wildman which consists of Mike Hranica screaming "I know a ghost" for the beginning of the song which would give anyone chill bumps. Prada's performance was by far the best of the night and remember to check them out the entire summer on the Van's Warped Tour!
