GODS OF HELLFIRE
The Gaff, Holloway Road 03.10.09
Cant help but love this band, they are young and talented and have a healthy obsession with Iron Maiden!
What puts these guys above the rest is their great musicianship and entertaining stage presence.They have a huge set as well full of headbanging riffs and a fantastic version of 'Fear In The Dark'.
Stepped in at the last moment as Primitai had to cancel due to their guitarist becoming a dad!Kopperhed have only been around a short while but are picking up quite a following and getting a reputation as a great live band.
They certainly entertain and are clearly four very different people bringing in varied influences to create what one guy commented as sort of "New Nu-Metal".
Incredible growling vocals are delivered by a huge man in a kilt doing old "rave" type hand dances whilst metal and goth influences flow from the guitarist and bassist, the latter with some amazing vocal harmonies as well (Despite a michrophone malfunction), all this backed by wild drumming.
GODS OF HELLFIRE
With a huge vocalist looking like a cross between Danzig and Peter Steel and a band armed with flying V type guitars you know you are in for a set of high volume metal, and thats exactly what we get, and it fucking rocked!
A superb set of full on old school tinged heavy metal with screaming vocals and guitars and break-neck drumming held together by tight bass riffs, but hold on it gets better they pull out a cover of Rainbow's 'Hall Of The Mountain King' that was outstanding!
MOUTHFUL OF FLIES
Definatley one of the best live bands around at the moment, their take on metal has elements of Static X and Fear Factory but they are true originals in both music and performance.
A full set is recieved with headbanging and cheering throughout, they have some fantastic songs and its all delivered with style.
