Venue: Train, Aarhus, Denmark
Date: February 10th 2006
off on this fine Friday evening in Aarhus is a band from Odense
in Denmark. Five lads who’ve actually been around the metal scene for
some years now, most notably in one of the constellations of the
now defunct doom metal band Morfeus whom some might remember.
Sadly, the experience these musicians ought to have doesn’t
really shine through. The In Flames influences are obvious here
and there, only this is not very tight and the stage presence is
front man seems like a pleasant enough chap who growls decently,
but he just comes over as being too shy. A long way to go still
for this band.
after Mindmare, Dawn of Demise from Silkeborg in Denmark
have a much more impressive style. This is brutal and much more tight.
And the voice of vocalist Scott Jensen, ho ho, what a trumpet of doom
that is! If Illdisposed fall over a cliff tomorrow, we have someone to
fall in their footsteps, no doubt. The beautiful part is that that
this guy looks as if he’s falling asleep, and, no, it’s not
shyness, he’s just a portly little geezer with hair down to his arse
and an extremely laidback attitude. And he just happens to have one of
the most brutal voices I’ve heard in a long time. This is an
excellent and very promising performance
- go see them!
Hatesphere. My favourite gig these days. Jacob and his crew have
never disappointed me (or any other audience I believe) and I
was for some reason a bit anxious that it would happen tonight
here in their hometown. You know, to some extent it did. Just a
doesn’t come down to the music – it was a
in-your-fucking-face an riff-laden as always and spanned their
small but strong catalogue of releases (see setlist next to this)
– no, it came down to the chit-chatter on stage from Mr.
Bredahl. Don’t go Phil Anselmo, man, do what you do best:
