The Original Misfits
Tonight’s the first night we’ll be unleashing him on the Trivium crowd. I keep forgetting because we’ve played for a few weeks together, that nobody else has seen this yet
So once again, Massacre Records signed a band which I really like. The folks at Massacre Records have always been a very reliable metal label for my tastes (having brought some of my favourite bands to my ears) and Envinya doesn’t escape that trend of very good signings (along with Dante’s latest album, November Red, recently reviewed on this very site and which I strongly recommend to fans of progressive metal). I can definitely see myself buying this album when I see it in my record store (which I will do, if I see it).
Unsurprisingly, the setlist is focussed on tracks from their latest release, but also features a few tracks from each of their two earlier albums. Mid way through the set, Worsnop asks us if we want to hear some really old shit, before they play a few bars of the unmistakeable Pantera classic ‘Walk’ and a few seconds of ‘One Step Closer’ from Linkin Park, followed by ‘A Prophesy’ from their own debut album Stand Up and Scream.
