After two great opening acts, the time for the headliners had arrived. Without talking much, they started presenting their latest excellent album “Unique” in its entirety, while on a great mood. And it was after the great “Four Cornered God” when they decided to go a little back, to “Skein Syndrome”, and play the hymn “Weakness”. Probably the best refrain they’ve ever written with the fans helping with their voices. Without pausing between the songs, their performance was ideal. Stavros Rigos with his sturdy drumming, Takis Foitos with his flawless technique on bass, Laurence Bergström who took all the major guitar parts and of course George Prokopiou who was more focused on his vocals with great results, gave me exactly what I was expecting. A band in the best period of their career, proving that they are not considered one of the best Greek acts by chance. Top moments were also “Giant” and “Passive Observer”. And now, who waits until the end of the year for their new album, as they told us in our interview?
Setlist: False Morality, My Own Disorder, Four Cornered God, Weakness, Passive Observer, Fragments, Discipline, Euthanasia, Giant, Unique, Instinct, Brightness Of Loss, Remission Of Breath
Finally, I have to say that the sound was excellent in all the bands. Also, the light show and the smoke on stage helped for a better result. A night full of great music came to its end and the fans exited the venue with a big smile of their faces. Gigs like this one, will give you special moments almost every time. And this particular one, was not an exception.
