On December 8th, New York was treated to a phenomenal show by melodic death pioneers In Flames, along with Red and Arrival Of Autumn at Sony Hall. The night started with Arrival Of Autumn. These Canadians sure know how to make an entrance
FFDP finally comes on stage ahead of their monster production set, promptly and ready to ignite the night. Front man Ivan Moody seems in good spirits after his well documented battles with his own demons; trials and tribulations he has seemed to conquer as it may seem.
Last but not least, As I Lay Dying. Words can’t even describe how truly incredible their set was. I think I speak for everyone when I say, a few years ago I never would’ve expected to be seeing this band again and after seeing this set, I’m so glad I was able to. From the opening note to the last chord, they did not let up and their set was filled with bangers. Opening with “Blinded” they started on high energy and kept it there the whole night. Their set was also a great mix of old and new.
This chilly night ends with “School’s Out/Another Brick In The Wall” and as the early week crowd heads out to of the Concert Hall, we are reminded once again how honored we are to witness another Rock legend, and also have a chance to share an experience with so many other Alice fans. Last but not least, we survived another butchery and his minions we’re very well satisfied. Until next time freaks!!!
The range that vocalist Cristina Scabbia can hit is truly incredible and it is her trade-offs with Andrea Ferro that are the essence of the band. ‘Cybersleep’ and ‘The House of Shame’ have the entire front row singing every word back to the vocalists before ‘Enjoy the Silence’ brings the venues voice together as one.
The event itself didn’t feel old-fashioned or staid but because of its atmosphere it looks like mores are changing and ever-evolving sunny beaches of Fuengirola could easily be turned into a huge music picnic alike place, straight from flower power, free love, rock-n-roll sixties era.
The scene on this Tuesday night was ready for a masquerade party in Suffolk’s north shore. All the settings were there, and the people were showing up, some in costume, most not, but the audience was filling in around 5pm. This evening was to be filled with fun, dance, and music however we all know the adage pertaining to the best laid plans of mice and men.
Something You Love, an album highlight also ticks the boxes that make the blue collar men nob and sob into their beers as he sings about running into an old friend, swapping stories, having a few drinks etc… The company has closed he finds out, budget cuts and setbacks so it’s time to get out there and do… something you love! Springsteen would be proud!
Finally after months of anticipation, we got a chance to gear up and pack for 3 days of Rock and Metal in the south!!!. The site Manchester, TN, Great Stage Park sitting on a 700 acre farm, famously known for the Bonnaroo Music Festival…
