L’11 Marzo il Kino Šiška di Ljubljana ha preso una vena Metalcore! Ospiti della sala concerti slovena gli Asking Alexandria supportati da Silent Screams e The Word Alive. A causa della grandezza del locale, lo show non è andato sold out, tuttavia l’energia non è mancata.
I Silent Screams sono partiti con qualche minuto di ritardo ma senza esitazioni, svegliando il locale con uno show ricco di energia. Nonostante faccia parte della band da pochissimo tempo, il bassista Mikey Scrivens ha impressionato tutti anche con le sue doti vocali votate ai cori. La band risulta molto mobile sul palco e ben lontana dall’esser statica.
Subito dopo, i The Word Alive. Il frontaman Telle ha intrattenuto tutti e soprattutto interagito molto col pubblico, forte della sua grande e longeva esperienza (cantante per In Fear And Faith e bassista per Greeley Estates), lo show è stato grandioso sotto ogni aspetto.
Finalmente gli attesissimi Asking Alexandria fanno capolino. Nonostante il grande successo di “The Black” la formazione ha presentato un grande show incentrato quasi unicamente su “From Death to Destiny”, con l’aggiunta di qualche hit molto vecchia. Scelta forse dettata dal cambio momentaneo di vocalist nella band per quello specifico album, scelta quasi obbligata dati i problemi personali di Danny Worsnop.
Una volta concluso il main event, si è creato un capannello di persone intorno al tour bus dove era disponibile un banchetto del merch sul quale Danny vendeva il suo album solista “The Long Road Home”, disco dal tratto autobiografico, incentrato sul processo di guarigione dell’artista. Momento trasformato in una sorta di meet and greet con foto e autografi del cantante con tutti gli acquirenti.
In conclusione, show molto coinvolgente, nessun problema tecnico e una grande attitudine da parte delle band, con un modo di porsi molto umile e un’atmosfera molto felice.
On Marc 11th Kino Šiška in Ljubljana, Slovenia, took on a metalcore vibe! They were hosting Asking Alexandria with 2 guest opening bands, Silent Screams and The Word Alive. Due to a quite big venue, the show wasn’t sold out, however the energy was there.
Show started only a few minutes late but Silent Screams made sure to make up for it with an energy filled show. It has only been about a month since they accepted a new bass player in their band but they really seemed to hit it off. Mikey Scrivens it right in and throughoutly impressed the crowd with his added vocals. The band was far from static and we had the chance to see a lot of running around that kept us on our toes.
Next there were The Word Alive. The frontman Telle kept everyone entertained and also made contact with the crowd quite a few times. The entire show was incredibly hyper but he’s been a preformer for quite a while so it shows. He used to be one of the vocalists in “In Fear and Faith“ and a bass player for Greeley Estates.
Then, the long awaited Asking Alexandia finally made their appearance. They mainly played songs from their album “From Death to Destiny“and some of their older hits. They didn’t, however, play any of the songs from their last album “The Black“, even though it was a great success on the US and UK charts. That was probably due to the fact that the album was recorded with their previous frontman Denis Stoff , who replaced their main vocalist Danny Worsnop for a little while. Now Danny’s back and says that Denis only kept “his seat warm” while he was away taking care of his personal problems and health, and is ready to once again take the music industry by storm with Asking Alexandia. At the end of the show fans gathered around the Asking tour bus, where they could buy Worsnop’s new solo album “The Long Road Home“, talking about his recovery. Every buyer got a signed copy of the CD and a photo with the infamous frontman.
So, to conclude, it was a great night. The shows were far from boring and there were no technical difficulties in sight. What made it even better was the down to earth attitude of the bands and the general happy atmosphere.
