Review from Metalized Magazine by Matt Bond

There’s one thing that is astounding to believe about Skindred’s slot at this year’s Sonisphere, and that’s the fact that they are consistently acclaimed as one of this country’s finest live acts, yet they are second on the Saturn stage on the first day! Nonetheless, Benji Webbe and co. are blistering from start to finish. With breakthrough track ‘Pressure’ and new album anthems’ Trouble’ and ‘Ratrace’ giving the crowd their fill of infectious rock/reggae/metal crossover treats. Mr. Webbe addresses the crowd as though having a pint with an old mate and as the set comes to a close, he and the rest of Skindred can rest assured that while they had a low slot, they can definitely say they were the band that opened Sonisphere in earnest.
