Las Cruces, on the other hand, I wouldn't hesitate to call doom metal. They hail from San Antonio and played the last show of the evening, also on the outside stage. Their heavy bass line and gnarly riffs exemplified the genre while at the same not falling into the same basic mold. Their drummer, Paul De Leon is also their vocalist which is rather unusual but they certainly pulled it off. I can think of a few bands who might be boring without their energetic vocalist, but the same cannot be said about Las Cruces. His clear but ferocious voice boomed out at the audience and was a great accompaniment to his drumming as well as to the rest of the music. The show was fantastic and I don't think anyone could disagree with me.
