iMatter Festival, back at the Chemung County Fairgrounds, for its eleventh year, boasted what could be one of it’s heaviest lineups in years.  Including such bands from the Tri-State area as Born A New, a recent Stay Sick Recordings signing, and Kaonashi, one of the newest signings to Equal Vision Records, you can bet that the mosh was heavy this year. Other bands such as Davey Muise’s, ex-Vanna vocalist, new band Trove, Traitors, Harm’s Way, The Last Ten Seconds of Life and Wage War played with the whole day culminating with Beartooth taking to the stage to close out the festival for the day.
