concert review @ zürich jan 13th, 2012 @dynamo werk 21



Ja was soll ich sagen. Bin ich enttäuscht, dass die Band


A Pale Horse Named Death 


(noch) keine neuen Songs in Petto hatten? Bin ich frustriert, dass ich nach Konzertschluss, kurz nach 10 Uhr abends, schon wieder auf der Strasse stand? Soll ich mich ärgern, dass es zu Beginn technische Probleme mit dem Mikro gab? Soll ich betrübt sein, dass keine 100 zahlende Musikfans zusammenkamen? Bin ich deprimiert, dass ich zu den Ältesten im Saal gehörte? (Das geht mir aber sowas von am Arsch vorbei! ;) Oder soll ich mich ganz simpel ob dem Dargebotenen freuen? Die Freude obsiegt, denn das Gebotene war, wie schon nach dem ersten Konzert im Dynamo vor 1? Jahr (da waren sie noch Supportband bei Seventh Void, die zum Teil aber die gleichen Protagonisten hat hehe) fantastisch, doomig, schmerzvoll (siehe nur die Tracktitel), düster und einfach perfekt. War damals nicht noch der Biohazard Gitarrist Bobby Hambell mit dabei? Stimmt, es gab da Konflikte mit den Biohazard Terminen für die jetzige Tour, deshalb wurde er durch Heedles ersetzt. Und der gute Mann hat die Saiten voll im Griff.




Der Organisator Starclick rechnete mit mindestens 130 Leuten und wurde bitter enttäuscht. "Es liegt am Januar,  dass die Menschen kein Geld ausgeben. Das Janauarloch schlägt sich auch auf die Konzerte nieder.", meinte Harry Sprenger. Janusodenn auf ein Neues.
Btw noch danke für den abartigen Eingangsstempel.




Wer auf einen Soundteppich zwischen Type O Negative, Black Sabbath und Alice In Chains steht, sollte die Band auf keinen Fall verpassen oder sich zumindest die Scheibe reinziehen.

So, here you go... the guy is actually very fond of APHND and Heedles. ;-)

Well, what can I say?
Am I disappointed that the band didn't have any new songs to present (yet)? Am I frustrated, that I was back on the street (out of the club) shortly after the concert ended – at about 10pm? Should I be upset that there were technical (mic) problems at the beginning? Should I feel afflicted, that not even 100 paying music fans turned up? Am I depressed by the fact that I seemed to be one of the oldest in the hall (actually, I don't really give a shit)? Or should I simply enjoy what was presented?
The latter applies, joy won, because what they presented was – just like the last time a year ago at the Dynamo (when they were supporting Seventh Void, but who were actually partly the same protagonists, haha) – fantastic, doomy, painful (just take a look at the track titles), dark and just perfect!
Wasn't Biohazard's Bobby Hambel with them last time? Right, but due to conflicting tour dates with Biohazard he was replaced by Heedles. And that good man surely knows how to handle the strings!
The promoter Starclick expected at least 130 people but was bitterly disappointed. "It is down to January, it's the time when people don't spend much money. The January hole/gap is also affecting concerts in general", says Harry Sprenger. Better luck next time. By the way – thanks for this deviant entry stamp…
(The author is referring to a German teen band called Tokio Hotel – something no metal fan wants to be associated with here in Germany. ;-) )
Those who like a sound mix / sound carpet somewhere between Type O Negative, Black Sabbath and Alice in Chains, should not miss this band at all or should at least get hold of the album.

He closes with the track list of the album (refers to the youtube videos), the line up and the tour dates. He also recommends the live show from Brooklyn (quote): "Who would like to see the 65 min live show from the beginning of the year in Brooklyn – lean back and enjoy here!"

I guess this solves some of the misunderstandings... :-)

I think the issues raised by this review are simply down to a wrong translation leading to wrong perception of its content. I will give you a proper translation this evening. No, I don't know this guy nor do I want to defend him, but I guess we shouldn't judge him by a google translate (?) translation. ;-)
