I finally managed to see Slicer after a couple of months of trying to get to their shows. A young band from Bucharest with a lot of potential in the future ; they make me think ,here and there, about one of my favourite bands Midnight. Slicer is the perfect mix between thrash black and the rebel Misfits look.
With a nice attitude and a different sound, they managed to convince my ears on Friday night. I do remember a few songs from their playlist: From hell she came; death rock’n’roll; chapel of bones and again…did I mention that they remind me a bit of Midnight? They’ve made a cover of the song Black rock’n’roll and it actually kicked-ass. Overall the sound was very clear and I managed to understand the lyrics and also the instruments very well. It was a nice show even if the guys had a few hesitations here and there. I do believe that this band has a lot of potential. Keep up the good work guys!
The next band on stage was Axez(former name Black Widow) from Bulgaria. Another young band which was…let me find my words… I can’t!! I was speechless after the first song. So much energy and so much attitude for 5 guys who were outside of their country for the first time. I admit that this may not be my type of music, but when something it’s good I admit. Another band who has lot of potential and who might teach some Romanian bands a lesson of what music is. . I really hope they’ll come to our country again for a show and maybe who knows, they’ll be touring and promoting their second album. I wish them all the best because they deserve it.
Moving forward to the l last band of the evening, Apa Sîmbetii. I am very sure that most of you are familiar with their vocalist Ste Ge who is also part of the band Kistvaen and who clearly has a very good voice suitable for depressive/experimental black metal. It was the first time I saw Apa Sîmbetii on stage and I couldn’t say that they were really my cup of tea…maybe because they were a bit ‘slow’ after so much energy from Axez.
The sound was good and even if there weren’t so many people in the crowd, the people who were there were exactly those who came there for them. I keep my personal opinion that I like Ste Ge better with Kistvaen, but to each their own. As I always do I recommend every band of the night for the fans of the genre and not only to them. If you are in search for good music you should listen to these bands.
Until next time!
