actually had been set off to finally see GREED live. At
this opportunity I had to do a live review about this local Hardcore
event, to support the underground. But... of course, things turned
As to read above, this happening is going under the motto Local
Bands On Stage. But, because this kind of organizations are
always going chaotic by nature and both US bands got their shows
cancelled; the whole event was quickly rearranged and now it started
as an international thing on stage *lol*. So, trudged off into
the deepest Muensterland and jumped into fun. This music pub Muk
emerged as an extended barn with a really small and very, very
shaky stage, but a location to feel well there...
belated :: SPUTUM
:: kicked off the evening and started with refreshing
and cheerful Punk Rock that it was a real treat directly from
the beginning. The local village youth immediately started to
mosh, seeing the first injured person after 15 minutes. SPUTUM
was founded back in ’97. They already released demo tapes,
a CD is in process. Let's see what the future brings.
Setlist: Schandtat, Verlorene Situation, Diesmal ohne
Claudia, Wesley Pe, Verfallsdatum, Schöner Wohnen, Entwicklungshilfe,
Dr. No, Sputum
OF THE APOCALYPSE ::
from Muenster/Warendorf surprised with 2 singers, but without
their second guitarist, who had to work (Saturday night? –
must be a similar poor bastard like me). Significantly influenced
by Soilent Greene and Moerser they treated us violently with their
material. Noise which made a lot of fun! The mates are around
since 1998, having two demo tapes under their belt. And, to mention
that here, the guys are true vinyl lovers, so you canget their
stuff on vinyl too.
the fucking great debut CD Fractured (check out
the review) up the sleeve and a few new tracks, soon to be unleashed
on EP, :: GREED
:: got onto stage in front of 100 peoples. The lads
already acquired an own fan community, most people only were there
to see GREED. They took no prisoners and brutally got in
with Fractured. The mates played there asses off, much pleasing
the audience. GREED kick live so fucking ass! Enthusiastic
headbangers will have to take a few days to get their necks in
the shape again. Musically you have to expect a hot cocktail of
Fear Factory, Machinehead, Pantera and Pro Pain. Mentionable is
still the cover version of Prodigy’s Breathe. Killer.
Setlist: Fractured, Scars Deep Within, Abuse Me, Know
This, Shockwaves, In My Dreams I’m God, Breathe, Perfectly
Wrong, Going Sane, Greed // Post/Human
I already mentioned above, it was pure coincidence, that these
US bands honored us here. Both bands are at the moment on club
tour in Europe (independent of each other) and were supposed to
play shows in Bielefeld, which got cancelled. Anyways, how often
US Hardcore bands get lost in this area? Well, ::
IN THA CHAMBER ::
served us the typical East Coast Hardcore and got not tired to
mentioned that they are really from New York, wow, really. Unfortunately,
the audience wasn’t in that mosh and jump-mood like the
dudes on stage. All efforts to whip the crowd up were missed.
Only the members of 100 Demons and the crews were showed respect
- admittedly pretty weird, it remembered me a bit on Break Dance
stuff. Most tracks they played were from their second release
Setlist: Mom, Footsteps, Hated At Home, Day By Day,
Existence, Just Lige, Evils Of Man, Strenght
the weightily guys :: 100
DEMONS :: entered the stage, which was extremely
shaky in the meantime, they completely changed the equipment.
These mate liked it obviously more to play their own stuff. Musically
you could describe the band with Biohazard goes Hatebreed. Also
here, we got it gross and brutal on our ears. They didn’t
take any prisoner as well. They presented their debut album In
The Eyes Of The Lord. Bass player Steve was in extremely
great form. There was no holding him. He jumped, moshed and ran
on stage and among the crowds like the devil himself.
Setlist: Forsaken, Hardluck, Suffer, Bruce’s New,
Infected, New Moose, Regret, Hard Surprise, So Alone // Wake Up,
First I have to confess, except GREED I never heard anything
of the other bands before and I’m not really into Hardcore.
But it was a cool happening and I enjoyed it a lot. Noise was
announced and noise was what we got, in different variations.
The sound was great, except some problems with micros, and all
bands went down very well. And guess what… the stage did
not break. Really strange was the fact... all guys on stage, independent
of what they were wearing else, they wore WHITE! Socks!!! Huuuh
how evil... indeed, hahahaha. Two moronic skins deigned to freak
out, but they got kept on a short lead.
