Seattle, being a bass capital, has been getting a fair share of bass music recently. Metalstep maestro Riot Ten brought the heat to Stage Nightclub on a rainy cold Friday. Stage’s weekly Bass Therapy Fridays brings bass, trap, and dubstep every Friday for all you headbangers out there.

The night started off with support from local favorites, Chenbear and SoSleepyy. The crowd quickly filled up and the party started early. At around 9 pm, the line to get in was already longer than expected. This is the first time that Stage has brought an artist like Riot Ten, with the venue being still new to the scene. Chenbear and SoSleepyy brought heavy bass and got the crowd warmed up and ready for the main act.

Riot Ten lived up to everything that we’ve expected – and more. Playing originals to remixes, bass to heavy scream-o metal, the crowd’s energy was at a high for every track that was dropped. Peak craziness came when he dropped In The Pit, at the end of his set, creating one of the biggest, most physical mosh pits we’ve seen! With chants of “one more song!,” Riot happily obliged – playing a slew of unreleased material. We are happy that Riot Ten brought his Rail Breaker tour to Seattle, we are sure that the headbangers who were there that night, agrees.
