I went last night to a metal concert in Voxhall in Aarhus. I really didn’t know what to expect since I had previously heard only one band of the four bands that played. The gig started with the Feroese guys from SiC. Their first song was very good (just imagine a Sepultura song with a length of 9 minutes). I even ignored the fact that their drummer was a little bit nervous and dropped one of his sticks during the performance. They even made a cover of Roots, Bloody Roots which was the peak of their performance but their songs also sound good nevertheless.
The second band to go on stage were the austrian guys from Artas. They were the band I had previously listened to as they got my attention on youtube with a cover of Coolio’s Gangstas Paradise. Yes, they played that song live and it was awesome Among their other songs I liked, I can count Barbossa and Bastardo. When they introduced the song Bastardo, they first said something like “This is a song with a title in Spanish” and I was like “OMG OMG OMG, they’re going to do a cover of Brujerismo???” but they didn’t
The 3rd band was from Belgium and their name is The Dying. It is pretty hard to google them or to find anything about them. They sound awesome but there was one small incident. One guy in the public leaned his hand to the front singer and he then pulled him from the stage. The lead singer fell in the crowd but he managed to continue singing although he was lying on the floor. Their songs were nice but I forgot their names However, I do remember that they did a cover of Pantera’s Domination. Yes, they even played the guitar solo perfectly.
The headliner of the gig was the Danish band of Hatesphere. It was only yesterday that I found out that they originate from Aarhus. The public went crazy but we were already too tired to headbang and stuff They sound ok although I had the feeling that all their songs sound the same. There was a lot of headbanging on the stage though and a lot of stagediving as well.
All in all, it was a great concert which got me back in the mood of listening to some more brutal metal than what I have listened in the past few weeks. I would just like to thank my classmate, Fannar, for the beer (damn man, that was expensive! ) and my current and ex-neighbours whom I shared this concert with.
