Metalhead in Munich: FleshGod Apocalypse, Krisiun, Kataklysm Concert Review - 15.02.2014

FleshGod Apocalypse, Krisiun, Kataklysm Concert Review - 15.02.2014

Servus Metalheads!

We are half through the Metal Concerts Marathon of February, and Saturday was one of my most waited Gig: Kataklysm! \m/ I don't really know why, but when you live abroad, seeing a band from your Hometown has a comforting side, even if you don't know the guys personally. It's sound silly, but it is how it is. Plus they are awesome.


Fleshgod Apocalypse
The first part of the concert was FleshGod Apocalypse. I was with a bunch of Italian guys, I think they got a bit offended when I told them I didn't know this band a lot. After their performance, I understand why they felt this way. The band is amazing! First, the back vocalist, a woman wearing a cape and a feather mask, makes her entrance in a misty, surrealist atmosphere. Then, the musicians arrived on stage. They all wore coattails that seemed old and dirty and their faces were painted in white. Everything seemed so quiet, so mystical. And then, BAM! awesome and brutal Death Metal appeared!

Their music is ferocious and raw, but still very smart and they really think about everything in their harmony. The main vocals, electric guitars, bass and drums are rude and harsh. The piano and the back vocals gave the main instruments a more melodic side, but still sinister.  The back vocalist brought a dramatic side to the sound with her opera type voice. When they play, it's the Apocalypse, and you're surrounded by this melodic, epic music. Plus, the singer read a passage of The Divine Comedy of Dante. This was just awesome. 

You know the book Quo Vadis (A story about the beginning of Christianity in Rome)? A movie (well, more than one, but I'm talking about the first one) was made from this book. At some point, you see Nero watching Rome burning. The Great Fire of Rome of 64 AD. Well, during the concert, I imagined this precise scene, and Fleshgod Apocalypse playing while the Emperor was watching the center of the World burning, and its people dying. This is probably the most apocalyptic scene I can think of. And their music would have been perfect.

Amazing performance, incredible staging, perfect atmosphere. 

Krisiun
Gosh, I feel bad for this part! Between two bands, sometimes, you go outside and you meet friends, or random people, and you start talking. And because you are not at the concert for the band which is playing, you just don't go back inside, and miss it. Well....that's what happened. We did come back in, but the guys started talking with Fleshgod Apocalypse (Italian solidarity I guess) and we kinda missed Krisiun. But from what I've heard from them, they sound pretty good....I'm gonna check them out! 

Kataklysm
I was so excited to see Kataklysm, especially in Munich. This concert was the last one of their European tour, so they gave everything they had. They arrived on stage, welcomed by a crazy and excited crowd. They started playing. And this is the moment I lost control. 
I don't remember the last time I've banged my head that much! I was just totally and completely overwhelmed by the music. I forgot everything around me. Only the moment when the guy behind me dropped his beer on me, while my T-Shirt was all opened on the back, brought me to the reality for 5 minutes. I could talk forever about how awesome they are, and how wonderful their music is, but you all already know it, right? 
This performance was powerful and breathtaking, and I am so happy to have been a part of the crowd that night. I can't wait to see them again, either in Canada or in Germany.

Were you there? Have you ever seen one of this band live? How was it?

See ya at the next Gig, Metalheads! \m/

Cheers!
