The Treatment - Review - Capital FM Arena - 28/2/2013
As the hard rock fans eagerly waited for Slash to make his appearance onto Nottingham's Capital FM Arena's stage, Cambridge rockers The Treatment attempted to make that wait a bit more bearable.
And did they make that wait more endurable! The five-piece - consisting of vocalist Matt Jones, guitarists Tagore Grey and Ben Brookland, bassist Swoggle and drummer Dhani Mansworth - burst onto the stage without hesitation, plunging straight into music that is reminiscent of Def Leppard and early Guns N' Roses.
With a vocalist with a similar voice to Mötley Crüe's very own Vince Neil, many members of the audience are already enticed to their catchy riffs, shredding guitar solos and infectious intensity.

Playing popular songs such as 'The Doctor', 'Shake the Mountain' and 'Drink, F***, Fight', they didn't fail to even get the older gentleman sitting behind me tapping his foot along to the beats, showing that The Treatment have won over many new fans tonight.
Spending their entire set bouncing in energy, talent and leather, The Treatment are a fresh breath of air in the modern rock scene. An 80s hard rock band stuck in the wrong decade, not that it won't bring them success. Last night's support slot was their biggest show to date, and with their determination, I wonder if it'll be them headlining there in a few years' time.
